Georgetown College men's and women's track and field teams finished up the Mid-South Conference Championships with a bang. The women stacked a lot of points, garnering 48 on the final day to finish in fifth, while the men took sixth.

Every athlete either scored a point, hit a personal record or had a season best in the three-day meet at Williamsburg, Ky.

Saturday saw seven female individuals finish in the top eight of their respective events and all three relay teams finishing fifth or higher.

Chelsae Osborn doubled to score Chaselyn Allgeier in the top of the first, the winning run in the semifinals of the Mid-South Conference tournament consolation bracket Saturday evening at Michael O. Buchanon Park.

Hannah Morton pitched a gem against Campbellsville University, scattering eight hits and striking out one in a complete game shutout win, 4-0. Her offense provided the insurance runs in the top of the fifth.

Georgetown took control of the game with three runs, taking advantage of two errors and a couple of other ground balls where an out was not recorded.

It was a wild and wacky affair at times, a two-run home run that resulted in one run, a couple of interference calls that curtailed opportunities, bases loaded squandered, but in the end Georgetown College baseball showed poise and composure in game two of the best of three series. The Tigers (32-17) rallied in the fourth inning, beating Cumberland University (26-29) 3-1. The victory was a sweep of the series and punched GC's ticket to next weekend's completion of the Mid-South Conference Tournament.

Trailing 1-0, Sam Medina led the bottom of the fourth with his only hit of the series – a double. Nick Giambalvo simply wanted to advance him to third with a sacrifice bunt. However, CU's Hector Morales dropped the ball allowing Giambalvo to reach safely. Then Medina used his speed to try and capitalize on the confusion and Morales threw the ball wide. The two errors resulted in a tie game and Giambalvo safely at second. Two outs later and Giambalvo just 90 feet from home plate, Andrew Paz stepped up to bat. The catcher provided the winning hit again. His single scored Giambalvo.

The Tigers added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth.

Chaselyn Allgeier's single up the middle scored Hannah Howes with the winning run, giving Georgetown College a 5-4 victory in eight innings over Shawnee State in an elimination game of the Mid-South Conference Softball Championships here Saturday morning.

Georgetown stays alive in the loser's bracket and plays again Saturday at 4 p.m. against the winner of Campbellsville University and the University of Pikeville.

Howes drew a two-out walk and Cassidy Janes singled to right before Allgeier's grounder through the middle got past the pitcher and into centerfield. Howes scored easily on the play, ending what was an ugly game for the Tigers, who pounded out 14 hits but stranded nine baserunners and committed four errors, leading to all four Shawnee State (24-24) runs.

Georgetown College baseball stayed the course and took care of business. In a best of three series, the Tigers (31-17) took game one over Cumberland University (26-28) when the flood gates opened in the sixth. Nick Giambalvo led off with a double and three more hits scored four runs. Michael Conrad finished off a gem of a game and handed it to Michael Koltak to slam the door.

Conrad earned his eighth win and Koltak is sixth save in a 4-1 win at Robert N. Wilson Field. The two teams play 1 pm Saturday with the if-necessary slated for 4 pm.

Andrew Paz's two-RBI double proved to be the game winning hit when the Phoenix were able to manufacture a run in the ninth as a last gasp.
