Volleyball Opens ACC Action This Weekend

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson volleyball team is slated to open ACC play against Georgia Tech and Wake Forest on Friday and Sunday, respectively. Friday’s ACC home opener against the Yellow Jackets is scheduled for 7 p.m., while Sunday’s game will be held at 1 p.m. in Winston-Salem at the Demon Deacons’ Reynolds Gym.

 

Clemson (5-7, 0-0 ACC) enters the weekend after going 1-2 in the Clemson Challenge. The Tigers defeated Georgia Southern in four sets last Saturday. Sophomore outside hitter Tori Woogk posted her double-digit kill match after tallying 10 kill against the Eagles. Freshman libero Madi Howell was named to the Clemson Challenge All-Tournament Team after averaging 3.55 digs per set for the tournament.

Georgia Tech (5-6, 0-0 ACC) is coming off a 3-1 loss to in-state rival Georgia in Athens, Ga., last Friday. The weekend before last, the Yellow Jackets hosted the Georgia Tech Invitational in which they went 3-0 against Xavier (3-1), North Florida (3-0) and Kansas State (3-2). Last season, the Yellow Jackets took both matches from the Tigers, 3-0.

 

Wake Forest (8-4, 0-0 ACC) travels to Duke Friday, Sept. 22 to open ACC play. The Demon Deacons are coming off a 1-2 weekend from the Penn State Classic. Wake Forest won its first match, 3-1, against Ohio, but was swept by No. 2 Penn State and Yale Saturday. The Tigers will look to get revenge over the Demon Deacons Sunday as Wake Forest came back to win in five sets (25-20, 25-23, 11-25, 21-25, 11-15) over the Tigers in the pair’s lone match in 2016.
