Softball - Sun, Apr. 15, 2012
Georgetown College softball (28-12, 14-4) split with St. Catharine College (19-29, 6-16) on Senior Day. Michelle Dresselhaus and Jordan Clemons were honored between games for their four years on the team. Both have been vital members in the Tigers success - 124-55-1 record with one MSC regular season and tournament title.
Dresselhaus pitched the first game win, 7-3. A homerun and grand slam spoiled the second in a 6-4 loss.
"Senior Day is always emotional and throw on top of that the rain and it was a crazy day," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "Kayla (Williams) had a tough start in game two, but we had our chances to come back."
Things looked to be going Georgetown's favor after a lead-off homerun from the Patriots in the top of the first. Chelsea Riney used her speed to score on an infield hit from second. Williams started the next inning by getting two outs before the flood gates opened for SCC.
It got five runs of three hits with the killer coming from Hagan Goldey. She hit a base-clearing shot over the fence in right field.
Georgetown did not go quietly, though. Every inning the Tigers threatened and finally pushed three runs across in the bottom of the fourth with two outs. Unfortunately, it was not enough and the two teams split the day of action.
The Tigers are currently second in the Mid-South Conference with potentially six league games left, while Lindsey Wilson College swept Campbellsville University Saturday to increase to a two-game lead in first. The Blue Raiders only have two more MSC games at Georgetown next Saturday. CU is in third, a half game back of GC. CU has a pair of games here and then hosts University of the Cumberlands to finish its league games.
