Tennis - Wed, May 24, 2017 at 1:40 PM

When you force people to sit up and take notice it is exciting to see what happens. Junior Shae Henry has been helping Georgetown College women's tennis do that for three seasons.

She quickly became a pivotal part of the Tiger team, pairing up with fellow then-freshman Natalie Fiepke, at doubles. The rookie unit worked well together and became comfortable with the college pace early. This has allowed coach Jessica Cunningham the ability to even split them up to help guide new players at doubles, but when she needs a point she knows where to go. She did this at the 2017 NAIA National Women's Tennis Championship recently and her now juniors rolled.

Graham Smith's throw of 56.3 meters during day two of the Mid-South Conference Track and Field Championships made him the third Tiger in the modern era to qualify in javelin for the national meet.

The 2017 NAIA Track and Field Championships gets underway Thursday and Smith will be on deck as the sixth individual Georgetown College athlete to compete. He joins John Michael Mayo and Derek Sword to throw javelin at nationals.

Mayo did it twice – 2008 and 2009. He finished 12th the same year Sword (2008) was there, who finished 16th. Graham's throw at the MSC championships would have been good enough for 10th in 2008, but he would have been fifth a season ago.

Women's Basketball - Mon, May 22, 2017 at 9:45 PM

Raegan Williams, a 5-foot-11 forward from Mt. Washington, KY has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Georgetown College starting with the 2017-18 season. Head Coach James Jackson announced the signing on Monday.

At Bullitt East, Williams scored 887 points and grabbed 624 rebounds. She averaged 12.3 points per game and 7.9 rebounds per game during her junior season. As a result she was named first team All-Region and was selected to compete in the Kentucky High School Coaches Association East vs. West All-Star Game.

"Raegan has a high motor, is extremely versatile and comes from a winning program," Jackson said. "She understands how to play with other great players and is willing and able to fill whatever role the team may need. We are looking forward to having her on the court here at Georgetown."

Women's Tennis - Thu, May 18, 2017

Georgetown College women's tennis took strides forward and set the foundation upon which coach Jessica Cunningham wants to build. The No. 23 Tigers punched the team's first ticket to the NAIA Tennis National Championship since 2008. The result against No. 11 William Woods University was not what the team had hoped for, but did leave a lot to look forward to in the years to come.

"It was a tough 7-2 loss to William Woods, but boy they fought hard," Cunningham said. "We barely lost three doubles and won one doubles. Madelyn (Kauffman) won six singles for our second point. To know we graduate no one from this team is pretty exciting.

"We had so many coaches come up and congratulate us. Had referees coming up and telling me that our ladies have the best sportsmanship. Next year is going to get really interesting – new goals."
