CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Georgia College Volleyball squad (4-4) didn't surrender a single set in sweeping the final day of action at the Queens Volleyball Classic Saturday. The Bobcats beat Winston-Salem State University (1-9) and handed host Queens University (4-1) its first loss of the season.

The Bobcats wasted little time with the Rams in the first match, taking the sets 25-10, 25-14 and 25-18. Georgia College took advantage of 19 attack errors by WSSU.

Senior Taylor Svehla (Cumming, Georgia) was the only double-digit attacker with 10 kills, as the Bobcats spread around the offense, eight different players recording kills. Svehla hit .421 as the Bobcats posted a .344 percentage as a team.

Senior Kayla Brockway (Jacksonville, Florida) had 33 assists, while sophomore Jordyn Moellering (Cumming, Georgia) led the defense with 16 digs.

Match two was a bit tighter, as after a comfortable 25-16 first set, the Bobcats needed extra points in the second 26-24 and then finished the day with a 25-20 effort.

Svehla led the way again with 13 more kills moving the senior to 991 in her career, as she seeks to become the first member of the 1,000-kill club at Georgia College. Sophomore Libby Bochniak (Marietta, Georgia) got in on the action in the second match, nabbing her first double-double of the year with 11 kills and 13 digs. Joining her in double-digit digs was Brockway with 14 and Moellering with a team-best 16.

The Bobcats are back in action Friday, Sept. 7 at 2 p.m. taking on Lincoln Memorial University in a tournament at Tusculum College.
