CHARLESTON, S.C. - The Georgetown University volleyball team (6-6) lost to Michigan State (11-0) 3-0 Saturday morning and fell to Presbyterian (3-10) 3-1 Saturday night in the Holiday Inn Charleston/Mt. Pleasant Tournament.
"Michigan State won the passing battle," said head coach Arlisa Williams. The Spartans also out-hit the Hoyas with an impressive .408 percentage to Georgetown's .213.
GU battled all night, but none of the three sets were ever in serious question, as the Spartans took control early and imposed their will on the match to win 25-15, 25-18, and 25-20.
Freshman outside hitter Lauren Saar (Plainwell, Mich.) had 10 kills on only 25 attempts for a .320 hitting percentage. She was named to the All-Tournament team for her performance.
Alex Johnson (Tampa, Fla.) had her seventh double-double of the season and second of the tournament with 13 kills on .360 hitting and 12 digs. Lindsay Wise also played well, hitting .417 with six kills.
Michigan State's Amy Dentlinger had 10 kills and no errors on only 17 attempts, for a .588 hitting percentage. Lauren Wicinski led her team in kills and hit .455.
"We tried to bounce back tonight but we were playing a hungry, feisty Presbyterian team." The Hoyas would lose the day's second match by set scores of 25-15, 23-25, 25-10, and 25-8.
The Blue Hose took the first set in convincing fashion, but the Hoyas came right back at them to win the second and even the match at one apiece.
The third and fourth sets that followed would be very one-sided. Presbyterian dominated the remainder of the match and the Hoyas never got close. As in the Michigan State match, Georgetown was out-hit .392 to .092.
Brooke Bachesta (Sammamish, Wash.) turned in 11 kills and Johnson led the team with 13. Saar had 5 kills and 15 digs.
The Blue Hose's Presley Mabrey recorded a double-double with 15 kills on .406 hitting and 20 digs. Allison Brown also had an outstanding performance with her match-highs of 16 kills and .533 hitting.
Sophomore middle blocker Dani White (Mission Viejo, Calif.) did not play in the Presbyterian match.
Following their hot 5-0 start, the Hoyas have cooled off and are 1-6 since. They have only one match remaining before beginning BIG EAST conference play.
The Blue & Gray will play their home opener at McDonough Arena Tuesday, Sept. 18 versus non-conference foe Liberty (8-3) at 7 p.m.
