September 1, 1998

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson volleyball team rallied from a 2-0 deficit to defeat 30th-ranked Georgia, 7-15, 13-15, 15-2, 15-6, 15-9, on Tuesday night in Jervey Gym.

The win broke the Tigers’ 22-match losing streak to the Bulldogs and marked the third time in the last two seasons that Clemson has come back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat an SEC team.

Prior to the loss Georgia had won 57 in a row when the Bulldogs won the first two games, dating back to Sept. 9, 1994, when they won the first two games versus San Diego, then lost in five games.

Senior middle hitter Stephanie Schulz led the Tigers with a .421 hitting percentage, recording nine kills and one error off 19 attempts. Junior middle hitter Cindy Stern led all Clemson hitters with 15 kills. Schulz and Stern each recorded two block solos and five block assists in the match.

Georgia (0-1) was led by junior middle blocker Kathy Vis, who had 13 kills and six errors in 24 attempts, for a .292 hitting percentage. Vis tallied two block solos and two block assists for the evening. Freshman Stacy Buerger had 12 digs, one block solo and three block assists for the Bulldogs.

Clemson (1-0) will travel to St. Louis this weekend to face the Billikens, Eastern Illinois and Georgia Southern in a tournament on Friday and Saturday.
