Mid-South Conference Championship golf teed off the postseason for spring sports Monday afternoon in Springfield, Ky. Georgetown College men and women find themselves middle of the pack after round one.

On the women's side, Georgetown shot a 336 – 10 strokes ahead of Cumberland University and 60 better than St. Catharine College. Katie Jones, tied for 15th with two rounds to play, shot a team-best 81. Sydney Swingo was two spots back and one-shot back with an 82. Lauren Von Ohlen tied with six other ladies in 18th with an 83. Deanna Johnson's 90 was the other scoring card for the Tigers on day one.

 
Football - Mon, Apr. 21, 2014

It will be a colorful night Thursday as Georgetown College football celebrates the culmination of spring practice in a scrimmage. The 117th Orange & Black game will be adding a bit of Greene and Rasberry to the mix. Helping as honorary coaches for the evening will be GC's 24th President, Dr. M. Dwaine Greene and new Vice President of Advancement Dr. Todd Rasberry. While most days these two will work harmoniously to advance the college, Thursday night at 7 pm on iHigh.com Field we might see their competitive sides take over.

"I've had one year experience with football on my junior varsity team in high school, add that to my college baseball days and I'm ready for this game," Dr. Greene said with a smile. "I'm pleased to be on the winning side of the Orange & Black scrimmage game."

It is yet to be determined which team either will be coaching as the draft will take place Tuesday evening. Coach Bill Cronin allows his seniors to pick teams and possibly the honorary coach that will be on their side, calling several plays early in the game.

 
Baseball - Sat, Apr. 19, 2014

After winning the first regular season Mid-South Conference title in epic fashion – nearly a four hour game that had 19 runs scored between the two teams – it was time for Senior Day's ceremonies. No. 7 Georgetown College baseball rode the rollercoaster of emotions and maybe was fazed a bit early in game three, but got down to business for another rally win.

"We might have gotten a little too comfortable," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "Campbellsville had some timely hitting in that first inning and jumped out on us. Our guys again showed great calm with this."

CU lead for the first two innings, but Georgetown finished off another conference sweep on its way to a 20-3 league-leading record with three games to play. The Tigers scored two in each of the second and third innings and rallied one more time for an 8-5 victory to finish off Senior Day with a bang.

Three and a half years ago Micah Baumfeld took over the reigns as head coach for Georgetown College baseball. In that time the No. 7 Tigers have won its first ever Mid-South Conference tournament, been ranked the highest it has ever been (7th), stayed in the rankings consistently and Saturday claimed its first-ever regular season title.

"It is a bit unreal, but these guys work hard all year long and this has been our goal," Baumfeld said. "It is extra special to do this on senior day and make it one more memory for so many guys who have made this transition possible."

Clay Hall and Shaun Meyer, two of the Tigers stacked pitching rotation, are two seniors that were instrumental in both the tournament crown and now the regular season title. Javier Saenz, Brett Smith, Justin Moore and Martin Lemus joined in 2013 and helped the team win its first game in the new national tournament format. Edwin Santiago came this year as a pitching and hitting threat.

 
Softball - Sat, Apr. 19, 2014

Chelsea Riney had several hard hits during game two against Cumberland University Saturday. Unfortunately, they always seemed to be right at someone. When her Tigers (25-11, 18-8) needed it though, she roped a two-out single through the middle for the RBI winning hit. GC won 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh to finish off the season sweep of the Bulldogs (30-17-1, 16-12).

Chelsae Osborn reached as the second baseman dropped her line drive. Cassidy Taylor followed with a single to shallow right. Rachel Simms sacrificed the pair into scoring position. Taylor Shaw singled with one out, but her fly tailed and drop safely in right catching Osborn off guard at third. The freshman tried to score, but was thrown out sliding into home. Taylor moved to third and Shaw to second on the throw home, setting up Riney's game winner.
