GEORGETOWN, Ky. – Stiff competition proved too much for the Taylor volleyball team as the Trojans fell in a duo of contests on the final day of the regular season at the Boneyard Brawl on Saturday.

 

After dropping the opening set against 8th-ranked Georgetown by a 25-23 count the Trojans managed a 25-21 victory in set two before the Tigers closed out the set with a 25-20 win in set three and a 25-15 victory in the fourth set.

 

Senior Kelly Arnold paced TU with 15 kills while committing just two errors in 31 attempts for an impressive .419 hitting clip while sophomore Haley Harrell dished out 37 assists in the loss. Junior Becca Gerig added nine terminations for TU with senior Kayla Springer adding eight. Taylor finished the match with a .195 attack percentage, committing 14 errors and collected 45 kills in 159 attacks.

 

Senior Alex Reel and Harrell led the Taylor defense with 19 digs a piece while Gerig added 14 and Craig collected ten.

 

Playing their fourth match in less than 24 hours the Trojans fell flat in the final contest of the weekend as Columbia (Mo.) swept Taylor (25-21, 25-18, 25-14).

 

Arnold once again led Taylor with 11 kills while Gerig added eight and Springer collected seven. Harrell finished with 19 assists while Reel added 12 digs to lead TU. The Taylor offense sputtered with a .116 hitting percentage while Columbia finished and a .310 attack percentage. Arnold's performance for the weekend earned the senior a spot on the Boneyard Brawl All-Tournament Team. 

 

The weekend marked the end of the regular season for Taylor. The Trojans will turn their attention to the Crossroads League tournament that is slated to begin on Saturday, Nov. 5. Taylor has secured the 3rd seed and a first-round home match while TU's opponent has yet to be determined with the final round of Crossroads League games scheduled for this week.
