Great match tonight!! The 24 Razorbacks going against the #7 (see SwineFusion’s edit on my mistake) Ga Tech. With the addition of Head on the left side of the net and Jillian playing center backline, the Hogs are a much-improved team.
Hogs win the first set 25-16, their 19th straight set victory.
Tech is #7, not #4, but in the first set it looked like we were the much better team.
Tech jumped out to a big lead in the second set, 17-8. We cut it to 1 three times but could never get over the hump, and Tech wins the set 25-23/
Tech has a 6-5 hitter who grew up in Germany but plays on the Brazilian national team. She’s made some hitting errors but when she doesn’t miss she is hard to stop.
Hogs win set 3, 25-22.
Watching the Chiefs. Did we win the match?
Just ended. Hogs won the fourth set and the match 25-20. Jillian Gillen had 18 kills.
The German/Brazilian had 22 kills for GT. We hit .312, they hit .213, and you tend to win with that discrepancy.
Hogs play NC State tomorrow at Barnhill. Haven’t started SEC play, but we could be 2-0 in the ACC by this time tomorrow.
And that tweet didn’t even mention Elite Eight in soccer.
Nor the unparalleled success of our softball team…
It did mention softball, back to back SEC champs.
And it should have mentioned b2b Elite 8’s for Hog hoops. That ain’t easy…especially with zero 5 stars.
