How it Happened

Notre Dame (13-3, 12-3 ACC) got off to a strong start in the first set jumping on top 14-7, but a subsequent four-point run capped with a kill by junior outside hitter Mikaila Dowd brought Georgia Tech (12-4, 12-4 ACC) within three. The two sides battled back and forth before the Jackets took three straight points to trail by just one, 19-18. The Fighting Irish gained momentum beyond that, finishing out the set for the 25-21 win.

Set two was tight early as the two squads found themselves locked at seven apiece after a pair of Notre Dame errors. The Fighting Irish used short runs to climb ahead, but Tech drew back within two at 18-16. Notre Dame once again caught fire late, going on to take the set, 25-18.

Another hot start in the third set propelled the Fighting Irish on top early, 11-5. The Jackets drew within two on a three-point run including a Bergmann kill, but Notre Dame pulled back ahead by six. Despite two more kills by Bergmann when Notre Dame had match point, Tech was unable to surmount the deficit, falling 25-20 in the set and 3-0 in the match.
