Lindsay Wise hit a match-high .462 vs. St. John's
Sept. 21, 2012
QUEENS, N.Y. - The Georgetown University volleyball team fell to BIG EAST opponent St. John's 3-0 Friday night. Set scores were 25-23, 25-19, and 25-21. The loss is the team's seventh in a row.
Senior Lindsay Wise (Raleigh, N.C.) hit a match-high .462, with seven kills on just 13 swings.
The opening set was very tight, but each team had surges. Neither side was able to gain an advantage of more than a single point until--tied at seven--Georgetown's 5-0 run stretched the lead to five.
Leading 15-10, the set appeared to be in the Hoyas' grasp, but slipped away late. Red Storm senior Milica Krstojevic was involved in blocks on three out four points, and her team climbed back into it with a 6-1 run to tie it at 16. They went on to grab a narrow first set victory.
The second set was tied at 17 before momentum swung. St. John's scored eight of the set's final 10 points en route to a 2-0 lead. Aleksandra Wachowicz had four of her match-high 13 kills during the run, and two consecutive to end the set.
Just as they did throughout the night, St. John's got hot at the right time in the third set, and it was too much for Georgetown to handle.
MacKenzie Simpson (Greensboro, N.C.) played well in the back with eight digs and two service aces.
Sophomore Alex Johnson (Tampa, Fla.) contributed 11 digs and 11 kills. She continues to pile on the double-doubles, with her eighth of the season. However, she had 11 attack errors.
The Red Storm won the hitting column tonight, .200 to .061. They recorded only 16 attack errors, 10 fewer than Georgetown's 26.
Head Coach Arlisa Williams is not discouraged. "I know that this team has it in them to be successful" she said.
"I think at this point, what we do is focus on our deficiencies and work from there."
The Hoyas will play Connecticut in Storrs, Conn. Sunday at 2 p.m. before returning home to McDonough Arena, where they will continue BIG EAST play with two weekend matches.
The Hoyas face conference opponents Seton Hall Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. and Rutgers Sunday, Sept. 30 at 2 p.m.
