Baseball - Fri, Feb. 12, 2016 at 10:10 PM

Georgetown College baseball shifted gears this weekend with the cold and snow in Kentucky. The Tigers canceled a home series and traveled to Mississippi for three games with the Crusaders of William Carey University.

In game one Friday, WCU was red hot, scoring all of its runs in the first four innings of a 9-5 setback. GC (4-2) never laid down, rallying several times and even got within a run. However, the team stranded six and could never get on rhythm from the mound.

Joe Fernandez gave up six runs on six hits in three innings. Cody Maples came in during the bottom of the fourth. He got back-to-back Crusaders (2-3) to ground out before a two-out, three-run rally capped off the home team's scoring.

Emily Snow worked a 2-2 count and roped a three-run home run over the left center fence to lift Georgetown College softball to a 6-5 win over Tennessee Wesleyan College in Waleska, Ga.

The Tigers (1-1) led most of the game, scoring two early. However, the Bulldogs (0-1) used a couple of doubles to ignite a rally in the fourth inning. TWC scored three runs and, if not for a home run saving grab from Snow, it would have been six.

The wind pattern shifted near the start of the fourth, causing some problems for Snow. However, the senior adjusted when it mattered and made the grab for the huge out.

No lead is safe in a Mid-South Conference rivalry game. Georgetown College men's basketball hit the road trying to avoid a season sweep against Lindsey Wilson College. The No. 2 Tigers were unconscious for most of the game, eventually opening a 20-point second half lead, 51-31.

However, the Blue Raiders chipped away to be back within seven until Tony Kimbro came to life. The senior made a steal and went the distance. This started an 8-0 run that put the game back into a comfortable margin the rest of the way. Georgetown splits the series with an 87-63 victory, improving to 22-3 on the season and 10-3 in the league. Lindsey Wilson falls to 15-9, 5-6.

"This was a very good team win," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We came out focused and ready, set the tone from the beginning."

Without the services of Deondre McWhorter, out for a team rule violation, it was Kimbro and Noah Cottrill picking up the slack. Cottrill finished with a game-high 22 points with five three-pointers and Kimbro had 21 with four threes. Troy Steward was key in the first half with seven of his 12 points.

Georgetown College women's basketball was on a five-game winning streak largely anchored in defensive focus and limiting turnovers. In the second quarter Thursday, however, Lindsey Wilson College keyed in on seven Tiger miscues to blow open a close game. The No. 22 Blue Raiders blistered the nets at 61.9 percent in the 10 minutes before the half and rolled to a huge 92-64 win in Columbia, Ky. in the Mid-South Conference tilt.

GC falls to 12-12 and 7-5 in league play, while LWC improves to 20-4 and 6-3.

The home team won the second quarter, 30-13, and continued that trend with a 20-14 edge in the third quarter. Georgetown was a chilly 6-of-28 in the middle 20 minutes. Remove the second and third quarters, GC was 15-of-28 from the field.

 
Volleyball - Thu, Feb. 11, 2016 at 3:00 PM

Georgetown College volleyball coach Nick Griffin continues to ink high caliber athletes to fortify the accomplishments and strides the team has made in the past four seasons.

Joining his 2016 freshmen class is Lindsay Leick. The setter from Bishop Brossart High School has been a four-year starter and two-year captain for coach Pennie Wiseman.

"Lindsay is a fantastic addition to our 2016 class," Griffin said. "Her high volleyball IQ and feel for the game from the setting position will make us better. She's flown under the radar for most of her career because of playing for small clubs, but she's eager and ready for this challenge. Lindsay is another high character player as well, whose work ethic and competitiveness will shine brightly as she pushes others to make them better. I love how she already bleeds Orange and Black."
