Graham Smith finished up his second season, first full year, throwing javelin in the 2017 NAIA National Men's Track and Field Championships Thursday. The day did not turn out exactly as he hoped, but the experience is more valuable for the sophomore.

He became only the third Georgetown College Tiger in modern era to throw javelin at the national competition and first in nearly a decade.

"Nationals brings a lot of different emotions and adrenaline for first time competitors, I don't anticipate this to be the last time Graham is here," said GC coach Lucas Garnett. "He has this experience in his pocket. Graham's drive and passion will now propel him forward to continue to work as hard if not harder in the years to come. I see big things in his future."

Georgetown College celebrated the induction of the 20th class into the Georgetown College Athletics Hall of Fame. The ceremony was held in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym this past Saturday, inducting five student-athletes Shannon Hoskins, Susan VanArsdale Jackson, Forty Jackson, Leonard Kern, Tom Tripman; three special inductions – coach Joel Stockstill, distinguished alumni Jake Bell and the 2001 football team; as well as honoring several students and other guests with scholarships and special awards. The evening celebrated another successful year of Tiger athletics while remembering those that built the foundation for these programs. Next year's ceremony is once again set for the Saturday following graduation and associate athletic director Austin Sparks as well as the 2017-18 committee members remind all to nominate worthy Tigers now for the 21st induction class. Nomination form is linked here as well as on the Hall of Fame page here.

 
Tennis - Wed, May 24, 2017

When you force people to sit up and take notice it is exciting to see what happens. Junior Shae Henry has been helping Georgetown College women's tennis do that for three seasons.

She quickly became a pivotal part of the Tiger team, pairing up with fellow then-freshman Natalie Fiepke, at doubles. The rookie unit worked well together and became comfortable with the college pace early. This has allowed coach Jessica Cunningham the ability to even split them up to help guide new players at doubles, but when she needs a point she knows where to go. She did this at the 2017 NAIA National Women's Tennis Championship recently and her now juniors rolled.

Graham Smith's throw of 56.3 meters during day two of the Mid-South Conference Track and Field Championships made him the third Tiger in the modern era to qualify in javelin for the national meet.

The 2017 NAIA Track and Field Championships gets underway Thursday and Smith will be on deck as the sixth individual Georgetown College athlete to compete. He joins John Michael Mayo and Derek Sword to throw javelin at nationals.

Mayo did it twice – 2008 and 2009. He finished 12th the same year Sword (2008) was there, who finished 16th. Graham's throw at the MSC championships would have been good enough for 10th in 2008, but he would have been fifth a season ago.

Raegan Williams, a 5-foot-11 forward from Mt. Washington, KY has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Georgetown College starting with the 2017-18 season. Head Coach James Jackson announced the signing on Monday.

At Bullitt East, Williams scored 887 points and grabbed 624 rebounds. She averaged 12.3 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game during her junior season. As a result she was named first team All-Region and was selected to compete in the Kentucky High School Coaches Association East vs. West All-Star Game.

"Raegan has a high motor, is extremely versatile and comes from a winning program," Jackson said. "She understands how to play with other great players and is willing and able to fill whatever role the team may need. We are looking forward to having her on the court here at Georgetown."
