Tech can't keep Carolina down

For two and almost-a-half sets it was glorious. Tech had #9 North Carolina on the ropes, but Tar Heel head coach Joe Sagula energized his team by getting ejected and the Jackets fell 25-19, 25-19, 20-25, 11-25, 9-15 Sunday afternoon in Atlanta.

Tech earned an 11-10 lead in the third on a disputed play that Sagula argued forcefully enough to earn ejection. The penalty point made it 12-10 in Tech's favor. The Tar Heels went on a run, outscoring the Jackets 15-8 over the rest of the set and 55-28 over the rest of the match.

Sophomore outside Teegan Van Gunst led the Jackets with 15 kills, earning her 10th double-double by adding 11 digs. Sophomore rightside Annika Van Gunst added 12 kills and 12 digs for her 6th double-double.

Sophomore libero London Ackerman led the back row with 22 digs and freshman defensive specialist Annika Olsen added 10.

Tech is away from O'Keefe the next three matches, starting at 7:00pm on Halloween at Notre Dame. The Jackets are 0-4 on the road in the ACC this season.

Jackets rally to beat Syracuse

Down 0-2 after the first two sets, Georgia Tech came roaring back to beat Syracuse 23-25, 23-25, 25-11, 25-20, 15-10 Friday night in Atlanta. In this match, it was a simple matter of cleaning up the errors and digging Syracuse star Sylvi Uattara. After commiting nearly 25 errors in the first two sets, Tech settled and cut their errors in half over the final three. Uattara, who hit nearly .500 over the first three sets, found herself getting dug much more often, giving the Jackets an offensive opportunity and dropping her hitting percentage to .338.

Sophomore outside hitter Teegan Van Gunst led the way with a career-high 27 kills, hitting .377, with 12 digs for her 9th double-double. Senior outside Courtney Felinski added a career-high 16 kills and sophomore rightside Annika Van Gunst also logged 16 kills.

Tech got key contributions out of the middle, led by freshman Sydney Wilson's career-high 10 kills and sophomore middle Lauren Pitz's 5 blocks.

Sophomore setter Rebecca Martin handed out a career-high 64 assists while helping the offense to a season-high .326 hitting percentage.

Sophomore libero London Ackerman led the back row with 20 digs and freshman defensive specialist Annika Olsen added 15.

#5 Florida State stays unconquered

Senior outside Courtney Felinski earned 9 kills and sophomore rightside Annika Van Gunst added 8 with 9 digs but Tech fell to #5 Florida State 17-25, 22-25, 18-25 in Atlanta Friday night. It was the third loss in a row for the Jackets as the Seminoles stayed perfect for 2014.

Florida State hits hard in system and kept Tech out of any consistent rhythm that would make the O'Keefe crowd a factor. The Jackets gave maximum effort, and nearly won the second set, but committed too many errors to beat a team as talented as Florida State. As Tech reduces their errors, the wins will come.

Wake Forest comes off a five-set win at home over NC State Friday to play in O'Keefe Sunday.
