MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. —  The Georgia College Volleyball team (8-7, 1-2 PBC) fell on the road at Francis Marion University (9-7, 1-2) in Peach Belt Conference action Friday night, 3-1.

Taylor Svehla (Cumming) led the Bobcats with 13 kills and a trio of blocks. Libby Bochniak (Marietta) also tallied double-digit kills with 10 of her own. 

The Bobcats had five players reach double-digit digs. Jordyn Moellering (Cumming) led the way with 21, Nicole Cohen (Atlanta) tallied 19, Bochniak had 18, Kayla Brockway (Jacksonville, Florida) picked up 12 and Lauren Talele (Woodstock) notched 10. Brockway also had 38 assists for the match.
