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."
Kourtney Tyra has one goal – win. Along the way to achieving this goal she is shattering Georgetown College women's basketball records and setting new standards of excellence.
"She has an intense drive and she's had it since day one of arriving at Georgetown," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "Kourtney is a player, teammate and coach all in one, which is what you look for in point guards."
As she enters her senior season, Tyra holds the all-time assists, the single-season assist and the consecutive free throws made records. She is the lone female Tiger to tally a triple-double, is climbing the charts on the all-time scoring list and is 132 rebounds shy of being in the Top 20 all-time there as well. She is a two-time NAIA All-American and helped Georgetown to a 53-40 record in her three seasons with one national tournament run into the quarterfinals.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Georgetown College baseball got off the snide in NAIA Baseball Championship Opening Round action tallying its first win Friday morning in Montgomery's elimination bracket. The No. 21 Tigers (36-18) got behind early, but quickly responded and rolled 12-2 over Mount Vernon Nazarene (32-17) to advance to this evening's game against Indiana Tech (32-17).
The game is currently set for an 8 pm EST start.
"It's good to end that little streak and finally get a win in the opening round," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "We knew we were hitting well and like hitting here, but it was a matter of stringing things together. In the bottom of the second we took the lead, but really saw our offense come to life in the third."
