With the win, the Yellow Jackets improve to 22-4, 8-2 Atlantic Coast Conference while the Terrapins drop to 15-10, 4-6 ACC.
“We came out flat tonight in game one and then we got angry,” said Shymansky. “I loved the passion and intensity that our team showed from game two on tonight. Once again we had very even offensive distribution and got exceptional performance from Alexandra Preiss. We still have a lot of room for improvement and look forward to this week’s practice to make progress as a team as we get ready for our match against North Carolina.”
In addition to Moster, Alexandra Preiss finished the match with 14 kills (.444 percentage) and five block assists followed by Lauren Sauer who had 13 kills and three block assists. Jayme Gergen tallied eight kills (.421 percentage) and six blocks in the match. Kele Eveland handed out 52 assists and recorded 16 digs and three block assists.
The Terrapins were led by Carey Brennan who had 23 kills and 10 digs in the match.
Georgia Tech hit .312 as a team with 65 kills, while the Terrapins hit at a .193 clip with 64 kills. The Yellow Jackets also held a 62-49 edge in digs as well as a 12.5 to 6 advantage in team blocks.
The Yellow Jackets will return to action Friday when they travel to take on No. 11 North Carolina at 7 p.m. in Carmichael Auditorium.
