Women's Soccer - Sat, Sep. 23, 2017 at 1:25 PM

Unafraid. Determined. Georgetown College women's soccer season has a mission and a purpose driven by seven seniors. The Tigers (5-3-1) have run the gauntlet in the early non-conference slate, facing current No. 1 Martin Methodist College, No. 17 Taylor University and Grace College, which is receiving votes in the national poll.

While the best result has been a 1-1 tie with Grace earlier this week, Martin and Taylor have netted just two goals in wins. GC faced Grace on Wednesday, turning around for a morning battle with TU Saturday. The Trojans won 2-0.

"I think this week has taken a toll on us, as I saw some mental fatigue today," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "We were not connecting our passes well. I will give Taylor's defense credit, when we were able to get forward a bit they busted up much of our attack.

"They are definitely a top 20 team, and there is a lot we can learn from today's match."

Georgetown College volleyball has played nine matches this season, eight have been three setters. The No. 18 Tigers (8-1, 3-1) picked up their seventh straight set win Friday evening against Life University. The Running Eagles (13-6, 1-2) were slow out of the gate and never could catch up from there in the 25-7, 25-12, 25-21 loss.

"We had a strong start, which was very nice to see," said GC coach Christina Coleman. "We've been talking about that lately and wanting to really grab control in set one. I think allowing just seven points speaks volumes to the way this team responded to that call."

It was quickly 14-1 as the home team showed no mercy. Through a couple of time outs, Life showed signs of finding holes to attack but it was too little too late.

Women's Golf - Wed, Sep. 20, 2017

Georgetown College women's golf played its second fall match this past Monday and Tuesday. The Tigers were host to the Fall Mid-South Conference Championship. Along with all the MSC teams, Midway and Asbury played for a 10-team event.

"It was a huge tournament and a really good chance for my players to experience such a large event," said GC coach Marlene Schulte. "We saw progress and great work in that first tournament two weeks ago, the improved play from my three upper classmen has been great these first two tournaments. Baylee Salyers, Mary Catherine Borders and Kylie Speicher have done great improving their scores from a year ago by margins as large as 13 strokes. Our conference is so tough that we need to stay focused on improving from tournament to tournament and that has been assistant coach Katie White and I's focus. There are still areas we need to do better on as a team.

Georgetown College volleyball tallied its seventh win of the season – sixth in straight sets – Tuesday evening with a 25-17, 25-23, 25-20 win over University of the Cumberlands.

The No. 18 Tigers (7-1, 2-1) traveled to Williamsburg for the Mid-South Conference showdown. Jenny Howell led a trio of Tigers in double-digit kills with 14. Caroline Ricks and Jessica Tapp added 11 each.

Defensively, GC was stingy by keeping the Patriots (5-6, 0-3) to below .100 hitting percentage as a team. Lexie Gatewood led that charge with a career-high 25 digs. As a team, Georgetown had 71.

Men's Golf - Tue, Sep. 19, 2017

No amount of rain or lightning was going to dampen Connor Danis' birthday, just delay the big celebration. A senior on the men's Georgetown College golf team helped the Tigers remain steady through two delays of almost two hours. GC rallied from third place after day one for a huge victory in the Mid-South Conference fall meet.

"This lets us know and gives us confidence inside our conference," said Conor Taylor. "It was awesome the way our team came together through the challenges and handled the day better than the rest of the teams. This is our step one in the conference toward an NAIA championship.

"Not to mention a great birthday present for Chip (Danis)."
