Lynnette Moster, who has missed nearly three weeks of the season with an ankle sprain, returned to the court in fine fashion, recording a team high 13 kills and seven digs to lead the No. 24 Georgia Tech volleyball team to a three game sweep over Virginia, 30-24, 30-19, 30-17. With the win, the Yellow Jackets improve to 21-4, 7-2 Atlantic Coast Conference while the Cavaliers fall to 7-18, 1-7 ACC.
“It’s good to be working Lynnette back into our lineup,” said head coach Bond Shymansky. “We still have work to do as a team to get our offensive rhythm back, but her contribution and impact was apparent and valuable in tonight’s win. We had very steady offensive output from all of our players which is rare for our team No one player stood out offensively, however Jennifer Randall did a tremendous job defensively and had a big impact on the game.”
The Jackets used a steady offense to dispose of Virginia, recording a .323 hitting percentage while holding the Cavaliers to a .115 percentage. Offensively, Lauren Sauer tallied 13 kills and .458 hitting percentage. She was followed by Alexandra Preiss who had eight kills and Laura Kuhn who had seven. Kele Eveland ran the offense, recording 40 assists in the match.
Defensively, the Jackets were just as impressive, posting 58 digs to the Cavaliers’ 51. Jennifer Randall notched a career high 15 digs on the night, followed by Marisa Aston who had 11 and Keight Vincent who tallied 10. Jayme Gergen led the team with five block assists.
The Cavaliers were led by Alexis Geocaris who had 12 kills while Whitney Ashcraft led the team with 11 digs. The Yellow Jackets will return to action Saturday against Maryland at 7:30 in O’Keefe Gymnasium.
