Volleyball Splits at Bear Bash
MACON, Ga. --- The Georgia Southern volleyball team split a pair of matches Friday at the Bear Brawl hosted by Mercer University, defeating Bethune-Cookman 3-0 (25-15, 26-24, 25-21) and losing 3-1 (25-23, 22-25, 25-19, 25-21) to Mercer.
The win and loss moves GSU’s record to 3-2.
BCC (0-5) fought off six set points in the second set, erasing a 24-18 deficit thanks to four attack errors, an ace and a kill. But the Tigers returned the favor with two errors of their own to give the Eagles a 2-0 lead.
Freshman Bethany Sanford (Avondale, Ariz.) recorded a match-high 11 kills while sophomores Blaire Brueggemeyer (Burleson, Texas) and Sarah Gildersleeve (Naples, Fla.) and freshman Hayli Ketner (Spartanburg, S.C.) had two aces apiece.
In the nightcap, a .302 attack percentage in set two was not enough to overcome negative percentages in sets one and three as the Eagles hit -.026 combined.
Sanford tied her career high with 18 kills and added a match-best 16 digs. Brueggemeyer dished out 39 assists and sophomore Michelle Uzoh (San Antonio, Texas) totaled eight blocks (three solo).
