GEORGIA OPENS SEC PLAY
Georgia made its 2017 SEC debut playing host to Alabama on Friday. The Bulldogs took down the Tide in straight sets, holding the Alabama offense to a .157 hitting percentage, led by four blocks from Anna Kate Karstens and double-digit digs from Kendall GLover. The freshman tandem of T’ara Ceasar and Rachel Ritchie headlined the offense, totaling 16 and 13 kills apiece. They were complimented by six-kill performanes from Amanda Dachs and Majesti Bass. The following SEC match, Georgia fell to Auburn 3-0, also at home, despite double-digit digs from Ceasar, Meghan Donovan and Cassidy Anderson.
Texas A&M leads the series 14-3, as Georgia looks to snap a nine-game streak falling to the Aggies. In the two teams’ first meeting in 2016, Texas A&M needed five sets to overtake Georgia (25-20, 17-25, 25-21, 24-26, 7-15). Against Ole Miss, Georgia leads 40-18, despite a four-set loss last season (25-27, 25-23, 12-25, 19-25).
