Georgetown College men's tennis leveled its spring record at .500 with a big neutral site win over Bethel University. The Tigers swept the doubles and then battled fiercely in the one and two single seeds for the five necessary points.

Cole McCreary handled the third singles match with Byran Melbourne in straight sets, 6-4, 6-0. Kaushik Kailash handed Austin Daniel a 6-2, 6-2 setback. Everyone else needed a tiebreaker set.

Ryo Takeda narrowly won set one, 7-5, when Edwyn Rames took control of the match. He won set two 6-2 and held momentum headed to the tiebreak. Takeda righted himself though and won the top singles.

Georgetown College women's tennis continues to roll on this spring with a blanking of a second straight opponent. The Tigers (3-0) made quick work over Union College Wednesday afternoon. A couple of matches had some exciting moments, but in the end it was all GC.

In doubles, freshman Madelyn Kauffman and sophomore Amanda Moore held off Ljiljana Pajcin and Erika Broady for a 9-7 win. Juniors Natalie Fiepke and Shae Henry wasted no time and dropped no games in an 8-0 victory over Kacie Dotson and Brittany Lamb.

Coach Jessica Cunningham then tested some of her youthful bunch in singles.

Softball - Wed, Feb. 22, 2017 at 8:10 PM

Katie Young came up firing on a one-hop single into the outfield and caught Micah Seibert trying to stretch the hit to a double. It was just such defensive plays that allowed Georgetown College softball to take 10-2 and 5-2 wins over visiting Union College.

"We've been focusing on fielding and doing better on the defensive side, good to know they are listening," said GC coach Thomas Thornton with a smile.

His Tigers improve to 7-3 on the season and take a 3-1 series victory over the Bulldogs (2-7). Game two Kara Howard retired nine straight, including the stellar play that got Seibert off the base paths. Howard started the fifth with a walk, but quickly worked out of that with a sacrifice bunt out followed by a pop up and ground out.
