Tiger Volleyball Cruises to Three-Set Scrimmage Win at Georgia

April 6, 2011

ATHENS, GA – The Clemson volleyball team won their second scrimmage in as many tries as they defeated the University of Georgia, 3-0 (25-17, 25-21, 25-18), in Athens on Wednesday. The Tigers will host Furman and Georgia State for a round-robin tournament this Saturday at Jervey Gym.

The Tigers have everyone back from a team that went 18-13 a season ago, but it has been freshman Kamryn Sherman, who enrolled in January, that has been guiding the Tiger offense from the setter position.

After playing for most of the match in a three-set spring win at Georgia Tech last month, Sherman played all three sets against Georgia. Sherman is battling rising sophomore and 2010 ACC All-Freshman team selection Hannah Brenner for the starting setter spot in the fall.

Rising sophomore Mo Simmons led the Tigers with 11 kills and four blocks, while Serenat Yaz added eight kills and two blocks. Alexa Rand had seven kills and three blocks, and two-time All-ACC middle Sandra Adeleye had three kills and three blocks.

Rising junior Natalie Patzin played libero in the match, and led a strong passing attack for the Tigers. She has shown her versatility throughout the spring, as she led Clemson with 14 kills in the earlier match against Georgia Tech.
