Raegan Williams, a 5-foot-11 forward from Mt. Washington, KY has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Georgetown College starting with the 2017-18 season. Head Coach James Jackson announced the signing on Monday.
At Bullitt East, Williams scored 887 points and grabbed 624 rebounds. She averaged 12.3 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game during her junior season. As a result she was named first team All-Region and was selected to compete in the Kentucky High School Coaches Association East vs. West All-Star Game.
"Raegan has a high motor, is extremely versatile and comes from a winning program," Jackson said. "She understands how to play with other great players and is willing and able to fill whatever role the team may need. We are looking forward to having her on the court here at Georgetown."
Georgetown College women's tennis took strides forward and set the foundation upon which coach Jessica Cunningham wants to build. The No. 23 Tigers punched the team's first ticket to the NAIA Tennis National Championship since 2008. The result against No. 11 William Woods University was not what the team had hoped for, but did leave a lot to look forward to in the years to come.
"It was a tough 7-2 loss to William Woods, but boy they fought hard," Cunningham said. "We barely lost three doubles and won one doubles. Madelyn (Kauffman) won six singles for our second point. To know we graduate no one from this team is pretty exciting.
"We had so many coaches come up and congratulate us. Had referees coming up and telling me that our ladies have the best sportsmanship. Next year is going to get really interesting – new goals."
Georgetown College athletics is hosting the 20th annual Hall of Fame banquet Saturday to honor numerous former student-athletes for all their efforts in building premier Tiger programs. The event will be held at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym and doors will open for registration at 4:30 pm. Dinner starts at 5 pm with the program set to start at 6 pm.
Michaela Kennedy, a 5-foot-7 combo guard from Williamstown, Ky. has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Georgetown College starting with the 2017-18 season.
Coach James Jackson announced the signing on May 16.
Kennedy had a record-breaking season during her senior campaign surpassing the 1,000 point milestone and breaking her school's single game scoring record with 45 points. A lights out shooter, Kennedy also holds Williamstown's record for most three-pointers made in a game knocking down 9-of-12 against Model Laboratory High. Kennedy finished her historic season as Region 8's leading scorer averaging 20.6 points per game.
Following an extensive search, Georgetown College women's basketball coach James Jackson found he did not have to look far for his new assistant. The Tigers welcome Kylee Gorby, a 2016 graduate of Asbury University and Kentucky native to the staff.
"Kylee stood out to me from day one," Jackson said. "Starting with our phone conversations to her on campus interview she made this an easy decision for me. Her passion for the game, willingness and desire to learn, unlimited amount of energy and how well she related and interacted with our athletes made her the clear favorite.
"Her enthusiasm and work ethic has already paid dividends in recruiting and off season workouts. Kylee is a rising-star in coaching, and we are fortunate and blessed to have her at GC."
