Volley Dawgs Back On Track With Pair of Road Sweeps

Tony Walsh/UGA Sports Communications

Volleyball got back on the winning track on the road in Mississippi, taking a pair of 3-0 wins over the weekend. The win improves the Volley Dawgs to 19-7 overall and 11-4 in SEC play.

Kacie Evans led Sunday’s win with 19 kills and Meghan Donovan had her 12th double-double of the season with 41 assists and 15 digs. Evans had 14 kills and 10 digs on Friday.

Georgia wraps up its home schedule this weekend with South Carolina on Friday and No. 11 Florida on Sunday.

File this under Andy Landers, Koko and Kelli Miller, Saudia Roundtree or Teresa Edwards are not walking through that door.

For the first time ever, Georgia lost to Tech in Athens, 73-40, - a far cry from the days when this rivalry was not even close to competitive. Gabby Connally was the lone Lady Bulldog scoring in double figures with 11 points.

On Sunday, the factors could not have worked out any worse for Georgia. With an offense out of sorts and 19 turnovers, the Lady Dawgs had a hard enough time. Toss in Georgia Tech’s 58 percent shooting from three-point range, and it was a long day for Georgia, even after leading 13-8 through one quarter after even leading 13-1. Georgia, by the way, was 1-8 from three-point range.

But after a 22-22 tie at half, Tech went on an 8-0 run to start the second half and it was all Jackets from there.

Georgia hosts Mercer on Thursday.

Sadly, Georgia could not sweep Auburn in everything over the weekend. No. 2 Equestrian fell 16-4 to to-ranked Auburn to wrap its fall season up.

Georgia starts the spring season Feb. 1 at Texas A&M.
