Georgia Bulldogs End Volleyball Season with SEC Road Loss

The Georgia women’s volleyball team saw its season conclude in disappointment on Wednesday night, as the Bulldogs fell in straight sets at Auburn. The Tigers dealt the Athenians three consecutive 25-21 setbacks to claim a match in which the Orange and Blue carded more kills (45-38) and the Red and Black committed more errors (20-14).

Kathleen Luft contributed a pair of blocks and eleven kills in the losing effort, which left Lizzy Stemke’s club stranded at 11-19 overall and 7-13 in SEC action. The Bulldogs struggled down the stretch, dropping eight of ten matches after October 16 and failing to win back-to-back clashes after October 7. Though the team’s record was somewhat forgivable in light of the youth of a squad fielding just four seniors, the Athenians’ late-autumn collapse deprived them of much momentum moving forward into what we hope will be a better campaign next year.

For her part, Coach Stemke was ready to get next autumn underway. After her Bulldogs finished tied for sixth place in the SEC, she remarked, "We have improved from last year and we've set attendance records, but more importantly, we really believe our foundation of expectation has been set. We are ready to start 2012 as soon as possible."
