ALBANY, Ga. – Georgia College Volleyball (20-5) took care of the Albany State University Golden Rams (15-10) in straight sets on the road Tuesday evening, the Bobcats earning their 20th win of the season.  GC Volleyball has now won six straight matches with the win over the Rams.

The first two sets of the contest were close, with both teams exchanging points throughout, but Georgia College picked up some momentum after a late second set run to blow out the Rams in set three, 25-10.

The Bobcats cruised to yet another victory Tuesday night, receiving significant production from a handful of players.  Junior Taylor Svehla (Cumming) led Georgia College in the kills department with a total of 10 and a kill percentage of .450.  Emma Boughner (Bogart), Libby Bochniak (Marietta) and Emily Crowell (Horseheads, New York) continued to play well, all tallying six kills against the Rams.

Setter Kayla Brockway (Jacksonville, Florida) maintained her steady play for the Bobcats, recording 34 assists along with three digs. The Georgia College defensive front was held strong by Chandler Ewaldson (Savannah) and Nicole Cohen (Atlanta) who came up with seven and six digs, respectively.

"Tonight was a mentally-tough match," said head coach Gretchen Krumdieck. "I'm proud of how the team pulled together and worked toward the win."
