Football - Tue, Sep. 30, 2014 at 5:55 PM

Georgetown College (Ky.) and Faulkner University (Ala.) play a highly touted game of football this weekend – being selected as the NAIA Game of the Week. Both teams come in ranked in the Top 10 of the most recent NAIA Coaches' Poll. While the No. 6 Tigers (3-0) and No. 4 Eagles (5-0) will battle on the field, they also have a mission off the field. October is National SIDS Awareness Month and the 1:30 p.m. EDT game at Toyota Stadium kicks off a month of Mid-South Conference teams looking to defend against Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
SIDS is the leading cause of death for children 1 to 12 months old and claims the lives of about 2,500 each year in the United States alone. The lack of answers heightens the fear involved with SIDS. Awareness and education are the keys in helping combat this mysterious occurrence.
The Mid-South Conference will partner with the Finley Foundation to host the inaugural conference-wide SIDS Awareness Day Saturday, Oct. 25. Ten teams will participate that day in five games all found below.

"We had five scorers yesterday and seeing a lot of production throughout the field," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "We are getting ready to enter the heart of our conference schedule and this is good momentum for us."

Baseball - Mon, Sep. 29, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Georgetown College baseball's newest assistant Micah Graves has been helping develop baseball players for the past several years on the collegiate level. He helped Tarleton State University to its first Lone Star Conference Championship as an infield coach during the 2012-13 season. He then went to Murray State College in Oklahoma as an infield, hitting and base-running coach.

He spent this past summer as a head coach in the Metro Scout League-Collegiate League.

"I really enjoy the game of baseball, but more importantly helping that young player really reach his goals and round into a great player on the next level," Graves said.

 
Football - Sat, Sep. 27, 2014

Georgetown College football forced four fumbles, three coming at very key moments, but none more important than a third quarter recovery that stopped No. 24 Kentucky Christian University's momentum.

Jake Blust forced the fumble deep in GC territory and recovered. The No. 6 Tigers (3-0, 1-0 MSC East) took over on their own two, drove 98 yards in 19 plays for almost nine minutes to break the Knights (3-2, 1-1) back in a 48-14 win Saturday at Toyota Stadium.

"Our defense had a great game," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "They scored two of our first three touchdowns and forced four turnovers."

The Tigers got on the board when Jaylen Bailey forced the first fumble. The ball continued to squirt down the field until it was in the endzone and Dylan Sims landed on it.

 
Volleyball - Wed, Sep. 24, 2014

Georgetown College volleyball picked up a good three-set victory Tuesday evening in Lebanon, Tenn. Corri Muha set a season-high with nine kills in three, which was also a team-high. The junior hit .692 with no errors on 13 swings.

The No. 16 Tigers (12-4, 5-1 Mid-South Conference) handed the Cumberland University (11-7, 1-3) a 25-14, 25-22, 25-9 defeat.

"It was good to get back out and put a tally in the win column," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "We were balanced with Corri and Ally (Wilbourn) leading the way for us in the attack."
