Henderson, Tn. - Georgetown College narrowly survived conference rival Campbellsville University in a 3-2 win in the NAIA Region XI Softball Tournament on Thursday.

Senior centerfielder Kara Renfro hit into a fielder's choice, scoring Whitney Ealey in the bottom of the seventh and sending the Tigers to the final day of play in the double-elimination tournament. The winner of the tournament will receive an automatic bid to the national championship.

Campbellsville's Krystle Johnson hit a two-run homer in the top of the second to put Campbellsville on the board with a 2-0 lead that held until the bottom of the fourth. Georgetown clawed back in during the next at bat, scoring one run with bases loaded after York Samons was hit by the pitch of Cassity Kroeker to send Renfro home. The Tigers struck again in the fifth when Mid-South Conference Player of the Year Jennifer Tarplee singled to left, advanced on a stolen base and then scored on a wild pitch.

Georgetown will now face the winner of Freed-Hardeman University and Union University at 2:00 p.m. on Friday and could play a total of four games back-to-back during the last day of competition if they continue to advance.

Campbellsville ended the season at 30-22 after beating Georgetown in the Mid-South Conference Tournament semi-finals less than two weeks ago and emerging as the conference tournament champion.
