Acrobatics & Tumbling - Sat, Feb. 25, 2017 at 10:05 PM

Georgetown College acrobatics and tumbling continues to find measured improvement. Sometimes the best way to see it is facing an opponent for the second time. Saturday, the Tigers did just that in their first ever tri-meet. Concordia University Wisconsin, Adrian College and Georgetown locked in a fun meet at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. CUW won, but GC was right on the Falcons heels, much different from the earlier meeting in February. It was 225.040 to GC's 200.705 to AC's 120.475.

"We are building our foundation and learning from every experience," said GC coach Alicia Castagneto. "Tonight, the team made huge improvements in their compulsory event and stepped it up in tumbling. We missed some skills in a few events, we let it get to us. We will continue to learn, grow and become stronger as we have with every experience a first-year team encounters. It has been thrilling to see how far this team has come from their first competition just a month ago to where they are now and has me excited for their future."

Softball - Sat, Feb. 25, 2017 at 8:30 PM

Georgetown College softball split Saturday games with Purdue University Northwestern. The Tigers (8-4) started the day with a rally win over the Pride, 9-6. Then it was a pitcher's duel that the visitor's clung on for the win, 4-3.

PNW started hot with a two-run homerun in the first inning. However, GC settled down, got the outs and got to work offensively, chipping away at the lead for a 2-2 tie headed to the third. Northwestern (1-1) tallied four in that inning, but GC notched three themselves in the bottom of the frame to stay in the hunt.

Cassidy Janes got the rally going with a lead-off double in the sixth. A pair of singles brought her in for the tie, but then a fielder's choice and a pop out made it seem as though the energy was shifting back to the Pride.
