Lynnette Moster had 16 kills and 11 digs as the No. 5 Georgia Tech volleyball team defeated Wake Forest in three games, 33-31, 30-21, 30-27 Friday night. With the win, the Yellow Jackets improve to 17-0, 5-0 ACC and are off to the best start in school history. Wake Forest falls to 13-4, 3-2 ACC.
“This was a tough match for us tonight,” said head coach Bond Shymansky. “Wake Forest gave us everything they had and made us work for every point. The difference in the match tonight was our middle attack. Alexandra did a great job of hitting efficiently and Jayme did an excellent job, as well. For the two of them to only record two hitting errors in an entire match is outstanding. Hopefully we will be able to carry this momentum into our match tomorrow at Duke.”
As it has been all season, the Jackets offense was the difference in the match. Tech hit .359 while holding the Demon Deacons to a .194 hitting percentage. For the second consecutive match, Preiss did not record a hitting error, connecting for 12 kills on 23 attempts. Lauren Sauer had 13 kills in the match and she was followed by Laura Kuhn who had 10 kills and hit .375 and Jayme Gergen who had 9 kills and hit .350. Kele Eveland recorded 51 assists in the match.
In addition to Moster, Randall recorded 10 digs in the match followed by Eveland who had 9. Preiss had five total blocks and Gergen and Sauer each followed with three.
Wake Forest was led by Valerie Rydberg who had 14 kills and 11 digs.
The Yellow Jackets will return to action Saturday when they take on Duke at 7 p.m. in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
