ACC earned 4 NCAA bids

Florida State, North Carolina and Miami joined ACC Champion Louisville in the 2015 NCAA Division I Volleyball Tournament.

Louisville earned the overall #15 seed and hosted first and second round matches in the San Diego Region. They won their opener, but fell to Illinois in the second round.

Florida State headed to Gainesville, FL, for their first two rounds, where they fell in the second to host Florida.

Miami traveled to the University of Wisconsin for their first two rounds, and lost in the first to Iowa State.

Both Florida State and Miami were in the Austin Region.

North Carolina landed in the Des Moines region and, even though they were not a top-16 seed, hosted first and second round matches. They won their first, but lost to 16-seed Creighton in the second.

None of the ACC teams made the Sweet 16.


Louisville earns 2015 ACC title

Louisville, in its second season as a member of the ACC, wins the the 2015 volleyball championship and earns the conference's automatic bid to the NCAA volleyball tournament.

Based on the preseason selections by the coaches, the biggest surprise this year was Syracuse. Predicted to finish 11th, they finished tied for 4th at 14-6 (23-8 overall). This comes after finishing last in the ACC in 2014 at 2-16 (9-21 overall).

Louisville was picked to finish 5th, and ended up winning the title.

The biggest disappointment is either Duke, predicted to finish 3rd, but ended up 7th, or Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish were picked to finish 9th, but ended up 14th.

Georgia Tech finished in 10th place, as predicted by the coaches before the start of the season.

The NCAA tournament bracket will be revealed starting at 9:00pm ET 29 Nov on ESPNU.


Season ends with loss to Miami

Georgia Tech played a great first set, but couldn't sustain the momentum as they lost 25-16, 11-25, 19-25, 19-25 to Miami Friday afternoon in Atlanta, GA. The loss ends the season for Tech at 18-14, 9-11 in the ACC.

Junior outside Teegan Van Gunst and sophomore middle Sydney Wilson each had 10 kills.

Junior rightside Annika Van Gunst led the back row with 11 digs.

The season was another step forward for the Jackets. With the only expected loss being senior defensive specialist Wimberly Wilson, the rest of the team returns in 2016 to continue the improvement seen over the past two years.

Here's hoping for a great finale for Tech's rising seniors and the start of something great for the underclassmen and new recruits!

Teegan Van Gunst makes first-team All-ACC

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.
