Every class is unique and special for their own reasons and this past November women's soccer coach Leah Crews Castleman said goodbye to five very talented seniors. This bunch, for the better part of their tenure at Georgetown, was the backbone of the defense and the offensive fire power up top. With every graduation comes another group with a chance to meddle their talents with Castleman's game plan, taking Georgetown to another height in competition.
As of early June, the sixth-year coach has added seven true freshmen for the 2013 season – Shelby Vogel, Brittney Moshos, Kelsey Aerni, Danielle Lang, Amanda Hasl, Max Zimmer and Abby Sobolewski.
"I'm really excited about this incoming class," Castleman said. "I think they all possess the skills to help out immediately, while also giving depth. It is difficult to lose five players at once let alone five that meant so much to this program."
The past two seasons, Georgetown College women's basketball has been a force inside the strong Mid-South Conference and made good runs in the NAIA national tournament.
Third-year coach Andrea McCloskey returns a lot of her scoring threats for the coming year, but with the 2013-14 recruiting class has added some inside depth with Emilie Ziese and Jenna Meyer.
"I am very pleased with the two incoming freshman's ability to work hard in the classroom and on the court," McCloskey said.
Tiger Dance team is holding tryouts Sunday, June 9 at United Talent Dance Studio, 101 Spring Court, Georgetown, Ky. There will be a clinic from 10 am-noon with a break for lunch and tryouts beginning at 1:30 pm.
Please wear dance clothing – fitted tank top or T-shirt, dance shorts or pants and proper dance shoes. Hair should be secured back and out of dancers' faces and eyes. During the clinic, dancers will learn a one-minute tryout routine and the fight song.
Georgetown College women's soccer will have a familiar face returning to assist the team this fall. Tiger athletics hired recent graduate and former Tiger Caitlin Williams as the assistant for coach Leah Crews Castleman.
"I'm thrilled that Caitlin has decided to join us for a sixth season as a part of the Georgetown College women's soccer program, this time as a member of the coaching staff," Castleman said. "Caitlin brings a wealth of knowledge to the program as she has played every position and has quite a bit of coaching experience at the club level. She is a natural leader, a person who can inspire others through her love of the game, excitement for training and passion for winning.
"More importantly, she is a person of very high character and will continue to serve as an outstanding role model for the players. There are hands down no other potential candidates who love this program as much as Caitlin; she will put her heart and soul into every second she spends working with this team."
It was indeed a great night to be a Tiger, the theme that began with the first inductee Jim Carty through the final presentation to honor Dr. William H. Crouch, Jr., this past Saturday at the 2013 Athletic Hall of Fame.
Carty, Kent Garrett, Jessica Leonard, Elizabeth Brown McHale and John Owen make 83 inductees through 16 years. Georgetown added the 1989 women's basketball team to the previous 11 teams already in the Hall of Fame and Bob Tripure became the sixth distinguished alum.
"We have so many people that deserve this as you look back over our outstanding history in athletics," said associate athletic director Austin Sparks. "Fortunately, we have a great committee that takes this very seriously and each year we have another fabulous class of inductees."
