Box Score

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (Oct 16) – Sophomore setter Libby Alberts turned in a career-game, posting nine kills, 62 assists and 26 digs, leading Maryland (10-12, 3-5 ACC) to a 15-13, 13-15, 15-10, 11-15, 15-12 win over Georgia Tech (13-8, 4-4 ACC) in volleyball action on Saturday at Ritchie Coliseum. Alberts finished the match just one kill shy of posting her first career triple-double.

The match marked the third consecutive year that the Terps and Yellow Jackets have played a five-game match at Ritchie Coliseum. The Terps won the 1997 meeting, but the Yellow Jackets got even in last year.

On Saturday, Maryland and Georgia Tech once again went into a fifth and deciding game, and the Terps quickly jumped out to a 3-1 advantage. The Yellow Jackets, however, struck back to take a 6-5 lead. The two squads then flip-flopped leads and were all tied at 10-10. From there, however, Maryland went on a 5-2 run to close out the match.

Junior middle hitter Nnenna Amobi posted a career-high 18 kills, while senior outside hitters Kate Hannas and Beth Murphy each turned in 16 kills. In addition, freshman Carey Brennan turned in a 12-kill, 19 dig, four-block performance.

Georgia Tech got a 27-kill, 15-dig, three-block performance from Maja Pachale. Ky Bell posted 18 kills and 10 digs, and Teryl Townsend recorded 16 kills and 12 digs. Carolyn Clevenger tallied 50 assists.
