ATLANTA (Oct. 9) — Sophomores Maja Pachale and Ky Bell led the way Saturday night for Georgia Tech’s volleyball team, as the Jackets defeated Florida State in three games (15-7, 16-14, 15-7), ending their three-match losing streak.
Pachale led the Jackets (13-6, 3-3 ACC) with a team-high 15 kills while posting a .419 hitting percentage on the night. Bell added 14 kills, and compiled a team-high six blocks in the winning effort. The Jackets also used 13 service aces to lead them to victory.
Florida State (5-12, 0-6 ACC) struggled from the floor all night, hitting just .129 as a team for the evening, and the Seminoles were held to a -.128 hitting percentage in the opening game. Outside hitter Morisha Campbell led the Seminoles with a match-high 16 kills.
Tech returns to the .500 mark in Atlantic Coast Conference play with the win, after having dropped their last three matches to Clemson, North Carolina, and N.C. State. The Yellow Jackets will now hit the road for the next two weekends, with a trip next weekend featuring a match at Virginia on Friday night, and at Maryland on Saturday night.
