Bobcat Volleyball Falls in Three at GRU Augusta

AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Georgia College volleyball team (4-16, 1-9 PBC) lost a tight three-set battle at GRU Augusta (6-15, 1-9 PBC) 25-22, 25-22 and 25-13 Tuesday night.

The first two sets were hotly-contested, with the Bobcats leading in the first set as late as 21-20. After a kill by Rachel Reynolds (Marietta, Ga.) knotted it up at 22-22, GRUA put down the final three points for the win.  

In set two, the Bobcats were down 23-18, the Bobcats scored four points in a row, capped by a Jaguar attack error to tighten it up 23-22, but could get no closer.

"It was a good all-around team effort," said head coach Gretchen Krumdieck. "We are learning a lot about ourselves as a team. We will continue to work on keeping the momentum on our side."
