GEORGETOWN, Ky. – Junior Michelle Evans notched a team-best 14 kills in Cumberland’s 3-1 loss to Georgetown College Monday evening inside the Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

Maci Lerno, Ashley Sherrick and Moriah Smith combined for 15 kills to help the Bulldog attack while Kara Snell had 10 digs to contribute on the defensive side.

The Bulldogs fell behind early in set number one after scoring two of the first three points of the match. Lerno, Sherrick, and Smith each recorded kills in the set, but could not muster much of an offense against the GC defense. Cumberland fell in the first set 25-8.
Georgetown took control of frame two scoring seven of the first 10 points in the frame. The Tigers’ lead reached as large as nine as Cumberland fought back into the set bringing the score within seven. Evans picked up two of her 14 kills to cut the lead, but CU dropped the second set 25-17.

The third set started off with a Cumberland scoring streak and Georgetown unable to get on the board. The Bulldogs maintained a lead of two early on in the frame and held a lead as large as four before Georgetown called its first timeout of the match. GC tied the match up at 12, but CU regained the lead and held an eight point advantage at the 21-13. The Bulldogs took set three 25-17.

Both teams exchanged points through the 13-13 mark before GC took a three point advantage to take control of the set. CU fell behind by six and could not rack up anymore offense dropping the fourth set 25-18.
