ATLANTA (Oct. 29) — Georgia Tech’s volleyball team snapped a four-match losing streak Friday night, defeating Maryland 3-0 (15-9, 15-9, 15-13) at O’Keefe Gymnasium.
Tech (14-10, 4-7 ACC) was led by sophomore outside hitter Maja Pachale who had a game-high 22 kills, while posting an outstanding .320 hitting percentage for the match. The setting of junior Courtney Adler who contributed 49 assists in the contest paced the Jackets’ offensive attack.
With the victory, the Jackets move back into fifth place in the Atlantic Coast Conference, as league play, closing within two games of fourth place Wake Forest, who Tech defeated in Winston-Salem earlier in the season.
Maryland (11-15, 4-8 ACC), which defeated Tech in five games in College Park two weeks ago, struggled offensively all night, posting a team hitting percentage of just .113, while not having a player reach double figures in kills.
The Jackets return to action tomorrow night at 7:30 in a key ACC match with Virginia at O’Keefe Gymnasium.
