AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Peach Belt Conference (PBC) opener came up short for Georgia College Volleyball (3-2, 0-1 PBC), dropping a four-set match at Augusta University (8-4, 2-1 PBC) Tuesday night.
Augusta came from behind for a 27-25 win in the first set, taking the second as well with a 25-20 score. Backs against the wall, Georgia College took the third set 25-21, but the rally stopped there as the Jaguars finished it off 25-17.
"Tonight was a good road test for us," said head coach Gretchen Krumdieck. "We fought hard and won some really good rallies. Chandler Ewaldsen was a true leader tonight. Her defense was phenomenal and kept our momentum going. We are looking forward to getting back in the gym tomorrow."
