Georgetown College women's tennis owned the singles competition Saturday in a neutral site match to open the 2017 season. The Tigers (1-0) won five of the six singles matches, cruising 7-2 over Missouri Baptist University.

Lauren Fazenbaker, Natalie Fiepke, Madelyn Kauffman and Emily Novak won in straight sets, while Amanda Moore recovered from a tough second set to win in a tiebreaker.

Women's Lacrosse - Sat, Feb. 18, 2017 at 9:45 PM

Merrisa Heraldson took 10 shots Saturday in Georgetown College women's lacrosse season opener at Tennessee Wesleyan University. The senior netted seven of those, leading the No. 3 Tigers (1-0) over the Bulldogs 20-8.

The home team had three leads in a tight first half, but the Tigers roared late with three goals inside the final five minutes. They opened with two more unanswered goals for a 9-5 lead. TWU closed the gap, but never lead again.

The Bulldogs had three straight goals and for just more than three minutes it was a 9-8 GC game. The Tigers responded with 11 unanswered goals, three of which came from Beth Haynes, in the final 21 minutes.

Baseball - Sat, Feb. 18, 2017 at 9:20 PM

President M. Dwaine Greene threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the 2017 home opener Saturday at Robert N. Wilson Field. The strike set the tone as the baseball Tigers rolled to an 11-1 run-rule shortened game over Judson University.

Breion Barron scattered seven hits, walked four, allowed one run in seven innings as he picked up the win. His offense supplied 14 hits, more than enough firepower in the victory to run the team's overall record to 5-4.

The Eagles struck first with a run in the top of the third. GC responded in the fourth and then exploded for eight runs in the fifth and sixth combined.

Men's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 18, 2017 at 9:00 PM

Shawn Johnson hit a trio of threes to start the second half against Georgetown College men's basketball, helping visiting Campbellsville University pick up the win.

The No. 6 GC Tigers (21-5, 8-4) saw an 11-point lead evaporate, but still had a chance down the stretch in the 77-76 loss. The home team had two contested, but makeable rim attempts in the final 10 seconds and a pair of free throws with four seconds left to try and tie it.

CU (14-13, 4-9) has been on the wrong side of many narrow losses, including a marathon five overtime set back just more than a week ago to University of the Cumberlands. Campbellsville has 12 losses at five-points or less, which might have been the calm under pressure it needed to outlast GC on senior day.

Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 18, 2017 at 8:15 PM

Campbellsville University put together a 20-2 run to start the third quarter, giving the visitors enough breathing room to hang on and spoil Georgetown College women's basketball senior day.

GC (7-18, 3-9) had the No. 9 Tigers (24-5, 9-4) reeling in the first half and even took a 34-32 lead into the break.

However, Campbellsville used costly turnovers to change the tempo of the game in a 74-57 win. Georgetown senior Emilie Ziese looked to alter the pattern, stepping in and making her only three-pointer in the Orange & Black. Coach Andrea McCloskey recognized the trouble facing CU's 1-3-1 trapping half-court defense. She started bringing her posts to match the front. Campbellsville did not challenge the 6-foot-1 forward from Rensselaer, Ind. She responded by calmly stroking the deep shot.
