Aug. 30, 2003

Box Score

Alexandra Preiss registered eight kills, four block assists and a .375 hitting percentage and earned tournament MVP honors as the No. 12 Georgia Tech volleyball team won the Courtyard by Marriott Classic by posting a 3-0 (30-13, 30-16, 30-26) victory over Alabama on Saturday. The Yellow Jackets won all nine games in the tournament to improve to 3-0 while the Crimson Tide falls to 1-2.

“Tonight’s win felt like a great revenge match for us and our team was really ready to play better against Alabama,” said head coach Bond Shymansky. “Once again, Kele did a great job of spreading the offense and really showcased our middle attack as both Alex and Jayme were very effective. Lynnette’s overall ball-control skills really shined tonight. We established important momentum as a team and that will be necessary as our future opponents will continue to get tougher and tougher.”

Offensively, the Jackets posted a .309 team hitting percentage. Kele Eveland, who was named to the all-Tournament team, notched 34 assists in the match connecting with all-Tournament selection Lynnette Moster, who recorded 11 kills and Lauren Sauer, who tallied nine.

Defensively, Tech posted 37 digs and 11 block assists as a team. Moster had a team-high 11 digs, while Marisa Aston and Eveland each added seven.

Alabama was held to a .010 hitting percentage in the match as Erin Hefner led the team with nine kills.

The Yellow Jackets will return to action Friday, Sept. 5 when they take on Temple in the Ohio State Buckeye Classic in Columbus, Ohio at 6 p.m.
