Florida State escapes with win

The Jackets came out prepared and ready to play Wednesday afternoon, but in the end #20 Florida State was too much as Georgia Tech fell 20-25, 25-22, 25-23, 20-25, 15-7 in Atlanta, GA.

Tech had momentum after winning sets two and three and had an 8-3 lead early in the fourth when the Seminoles found another gear and outscored the Jackets 22-12 to send the match to five. FSU took control of the fifth as several Tech blocks just missed the sideline to escape with a win.

Junior outside Teegan Van Gunst had 18 kills and 11 digs, hitting .196, for her 20th double-double of the year and 32nd of her career. Junior rightside Annika Van Gunst added 12 kills and a career-high 22 digs for her 15th career double-double. Sophomore outside Ashley Askin also recorded a double-double with 11 kills and 12 digs.

Sophomore middle Sydney Wilson pounded out 14 kills, hitting a team-high .333. Junior libero London Ackermann picked up 11 digs and junior setter Rebecca Martin finished with 47 assists.

Tech's season wraps up Friday at 1:00pm with a visit by Miami. See story and box score.



Jackets swept in final road match

Georgia Tech competed strong the first two sets, but #17 Louisville was resilient on their senior day as the Jackets fell 26-28, 25-27, 14-25 in Louisville, KY Sunday afternoon.

Junior outside Teegan Van Gunst led Tech with 13 kills and 14 digs, hitting .257, recording her 19th double-double of the season and 31st of her career. Sophmore outside Ashley Askin added 10 kills before friends and family in her hometown.

Junior libero London Ackermann picked up a career-high 10 digs as Louisville hit at Tech's setters to take them out of play. As a result, junior setter Rebecca Martin logged 11 digs with her 17 assists. Sophomore setter Gabby Benda was limited to 5 assists, but had 8 digs.

Tech finishes the year at 5-8 on the road, 4-6 in the ACC. #20 Florida State visits Wednesday as Tech needs one win in their last two to reach 10 conference wins.

Askin for trouble

Sophomore outside Ashley Askin's father played football at Notre Dame and her mother played basketball there. Friday night, Ashley played her best volleyball as a Jacket there with a career-high 13 kills and career-high 27 digs as Georgia Tech beat Notre Dame 19-25, 26-24, 25-21, 25-22 in South Bend, IN.

Junior outside Teegan Van Gunst recorded her 30th double-double with 25 kills and 15 digs, hitting .442. Junior rightside Annika Van Gunst added 11 kills and sophomore outside Gabriela Stavnetchei reached a career-high with 10 kills.

Junior libero London Ackermann added 21 digs from the back row.

The Jackets need to find one win over their last three to guarantee a .500 ACC record. Find two wins, and they will reach 20 wins and assure themselves of a winning ACC season. No matter what happens, this is the best season since 2012 when Tech finished 18-12 and 10-10.

Jacket swept in Charlottesville

Georgia Tech lost to Virginia 23-25, 18-25, 22-25 Saturday night in Charlottesville, VA.

With four matches left, Tech will need to beat Notre Dame and then steal a win from one of three teams above them in the standings - two of which are nationally ranked - in order to finish 10-10 in the ACC.

These are the first back-to-back losses for Tech since a three-match losing streak (Miami-Florida State-Louisville) back at the beginning of October.

Next up, the team travels to Notre Dame for a Friday night match. See story and box score.


Tech signs Kodie Comby

With only one senior, the Jackets don't have many scholarship openings for 2016. They did sign one player in the early signing period in Kodie Comby, a 6-1 middle from Houston, TX.

Welcome to the Tech family, Kodie! See story.


Clemson ends losing streak at Tech's expense

Georgia Tech lost to Clemson 28-30, 21-25, 25-16, 20-25, in Atlanta Wednesday night. The loss ended Tech's three-match winning streak and ended Clemson's 17-match losing streak. It was the Tiger's first ACC win of the year.

See story and box score.



With tournament time not that far away, here are the current (23 Nov) NCAA RPI rankings for the ACC:

Team RPI
Louisville 14
North Carolina 20
Florida State 22
Miami 38
Pittsburgh 47
Virginia 54
Syracuse 61
Duke 85
Virginia Tech 95
Georgia Tech 110
NC State 151
Wake Forest 169
Boston College 172
Notre Dame 206
Clemson 211

By these numbers, the ACC might only get three teams in the tournament, but if Miami wins out, they might still find a way in if there aren't too many conference tournament upsets.


Everybody plays, everybody wins

It took five sets and contributions from all 12 players as Georgia Tech extended their winning streak to three with a 22-25, 25-21, 25-9, 23-25, 15-13 win over Wake Forest in Atlanta Sunday afternoon.

It was Wake's first loss in a five-set match this year. Tech evened their five-set record to 3-3. The Jackets also assured themselves of a winning season with their 17th win, their first since 2012.

Junior rightside Annika Van Gunst led five Jackets in double-figure kills and four in double-figure digs with 15 kills and 19 digs, hitting .323. Junior outside Teegan Van Gunst added 14 kills and 11 digs. Sophomore middle Sydney Wilson pounded out 13 kills while junior middle Lauren Pitz and sophomore outside Ashley Askin added 10 each.

Junior libero London Ackermann picked up 13 digs. Junior setter Rebecca Martin nabbed a double-double with 51 assists and 12 digs.

Clemson visits the O'Keefe Gym Wednesday as Tech celebrate's Wimberly Wilson's Senior Night and tries to extend the winning streak. See story and box score.


Jackets get signature win

The team may look back at Friday's match as the point where it all started coming together as Georgia Tech swept Duke 25-23, 25-22, 27-25 in the O'Keefe Gym. It was Tech's first win over Duke since 8 Nov 2007, ending a 12-match losing streak to the Blue Devils.

Sophomore middle Sydney Wilson had 11 kills, hitting .524. Sophomore outside Ashley Askin tied career highs with 11 kills and 13 digs for her second career double-double. Junior outside Teegan Van Gunst added 10 kills and 13 digs.

The Jackets kept Duke from finding a consistent rhythm and showed the mental toughness to weather the late Blue Devil runs, particular in the third set.

Wake Forest visits the O'Keefe Gym Sunday at 1pm. See story and box score.
