Women's Lacrosse - Fri, Apr. 21, 2017

Georgetown College women's lacrosse is finding its stride at the right time. Sitting at 4-4, the team has roared down the stretch and toasted the seniors Friday with an 18-4 victory. The No. 5 Tigers (9-4) wasted little time, scoring five goals in the first two minutes and 19 seconds. They cruised from there against Keiser University. It was a running clock before halftime and never stopped again.

Avery Blackmon led the charge, scoring six goals – reaching 100 for her career at Georgetown. She added two assists and 10 draw controls – her seventh gave her 200 in her career.

GC sent Brooklyn Fox, Merrisa Heraldson, Sam Dearing, Shelby Campbell and Amber Hunley out in style.

It was 17-1 early in the second half on Hunley's second goal. Dearing capped it all off with a free position goal with just less than seven minutes left. Heraldson scored four goals and added an assist. Campbell also netted a goal. Fox, battling injuries, was unable to play.

Beth Haynes had three goals and an assist while Taylor Irwin had a goal and an assist.

Georgetown now awaits to hear Sunday if the team qualified for the NAIA National Championship.
