MELBOURNE, Fla. – Georgia College Volleyball (2-1) faced its third opponent for the season-opening weekend tournament in Florida Saturday. The Bobcats shut down Wilmington University's offense for a set-sweeping victory.

The squad held the Wildcats to 14 points in the first set and didn't let them gain much more in the second. Wilmington scored a combined 31 points for the first two thirds of the match. The Bobcats topped the Wildcats in a tighter final set, taking the "W" with a 25-23 third set victory.

Sophomore outside hitter Ebony Powers (Jacksonville) dominated from the 10-foot line, notching 12 kills in 17 attempts for a match-high and career-high .706 kill average.

Kayla Brockway (Jacksonville) started at setter again, recording 32 assists and seven digs, while junior Chandler Ewaldsen (Savannah, Georgia) dominated the back row with 25 digs, helping the Bobcats keep the Wildcats to low set scores.

"Today was a total team effort," head coach Gretchen Krumdieck said. "We stayed very disciplined in our offensive and defensive systems, and that's all I can ask for. This was a great weekend for the Bobcats, and we are looking forward to our match on Wednesday."

Bobcats bring the action home this Wednesday, Sept. 7 as they host Emmanuel College for a non-conference match-up. First serve set for 7 p.m. for the Stay Mobile Luau Night.
