Georgia Bulldogs Sunday Sports Summary: Tennis Teams Shine, Volleyball Team Drops Five-Set Decision

With the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry scheduled to be rejoined at 3:30 p.m. Eastern next Saturday afternoon, Bulldog Nation’s focus has been on football, so much so that it may have escaped the notice of some among the Georgia faithful that other University undergraduates are engaged in intercollegiate competitions, as well. In order to ensure that you are up to speed, I now bring you your Sunday sports summary:

Tennis

The Red and Black posted four wins on the second day of the Bulldog Scramble in Athens, a result highlighted by Hernus Pieters’ wins over Georgia State’s Victor Valente (2-6, 6-2, 6-2) and Clemson’s Yannick Maden (6-4, 1-6, 6-2). Sunday’s final round of competition at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex saw Georgia earn a trio of singles triumphs and a pair of doubles victories.

In Flushing, N.Y., Sadio Doumbia and Wil Spencer advanced through the consolation singles bracket of the USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships, ultimately meeting up in the finals, where Spencer took a 7-6(7), 6-3 win over his teammate.

The Mission Hills Desert Classic in Rancho Mirage, Calif., proved to be the site of Kate Fuller’s and Lauren Herring’s 13th doubles victory of the autumn, as the 20th-ranked underclassmen duo carded an 8-1 triumph over a pair of Washington netters. Fuller and Herring followed up their tandem victory with singles wins, as well, with Fuller dealing her Southern California opponent a 7-6, 6-1 setback and Herring notching a 7-6, 6-2 triumph over her UCLA counterpart.

Volleyball

Lizzy Stemke’s Georgia women’s volleyball team came up short again in Athens, falling to LSU in five sets to give the Bayou Bengals their tenth conference win and the Bulldogs their tenth conference loss. The Red and Black leapt out to an early advantage, taking the opening set, 25-20, but the Tigers claimed the next two by 25-17 and 25-16 margins. A 25-21 Georgia victory in the fourth set evened the match, which went to Louisiana State in an 18-16 extra-points final set.
