Chicks dig the long ball, or so the saying goes. Seems very true for Georgetown College softball team. The Tigers (7-5, 6-2) blasted seven four-bag shots in game two Friday with St. Catharine College on the way to a 26-3 win in five innings.

"It's been a while since I've seen a hitting display such as that," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "All the way through the lineup, we are just connecting well at the plate."

Georgetown tallied 20 totally hits in the onslaught, with every player getting at least one. Shelby Engle continued her hot streak Friday. The junior had one home run in the game one loss. She had four hits in game two, three of which were round trip tickets. Through 12 games, Engle has seven home runs in 35 at-bats.

Georgetown College women's lacrosse was averaging just more than 16 goals per game coming into Saturday's Senior Day with Davenport University. The No. 4 Tigers (6-2) have only twice been held under 10 goals, both losses.

The No. 2 Panthers (8-1) controlled the pace and had a great game from goalie Samantha Powers in a 13-5 win over GC. Davenport broke the Tigers spirit with three early scores in the second half and held GC scoreless in a half for the first time all season.

Georgetown rallied to tie the game late in the first half, 5-5. Davenport responded with one final goal for a 6-5 edge at the break, then exploded. The Panthers scored three in less than two minutes and added a fourth before 10 minutes were gone in the half.

Georgetown College softball has been on a hitting tear through the early portion of the season. It continued Friday in a doubleheader with St. Catharine College. Unfortunately a batch of pitching woes led to a 17-16 defeat in game one of the four game series.

"We've been solid in both phases, you will have your off days," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "You just hope one of those lapses doesn't happen when another team is red hot. That is what we ran into during game one with the Patriots."

The Tigers (6-5, 5-2 MSC) started strong by scoring twice in the first inning. However, senior ace Kayla Williams did not make it through an inning as SCC scored eight runs in the bottom half of the inning.

A lead-off solo home run trimmed the deficit in half and then a three-run shot put the Patriots ahead. They added a third home run blast with a grand slam. In all, St. Catharine had eight runs on six hits in that first at bat.

She should be playing high school. However, fortunately for Georgetown College women's lacrosse, Doreen Brabble graduated in December. The Florida native elected not to play her final season in high school, ready to be a part of history in Kentucky.

The first-semester freshman is doing just that, and despite not being a goalie is one of the nation's best. Brabble was key as the No. 4 Tigers (6-1) defeated another No. 1 Friday night. Savannah College of Art and Design came to Toyota Stadium as the top team in the nation. The Bees (6-2) had a furious rally come up short 13-12. In large part because of three monumental saves by Brabble in the final five minutes.

"She was phenomenal tonight," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "The saves Doreen made helped secure that win. I couldn't be more proud."

 
Women's Outdoor Track & Field - Wed, Mar. 25, 2015

Georgetown College women's track and field got the season started this past weekend by traveling to Transylvania's Pioneer Invitational.

The women just had three competitors tally points, but it was enough for the Tigers to finish seventh out of 10.

Tayler Godar started her attempt to get back to a second straight track and field national meet by winning the 800-meter and 1,500-meter runs. The junior bested both fields by nearly four seconds, taking the 800 in two minutes, 21 seconds and nine one-hundredths of a second. She finished the 1,500-meter run in 4:57.96.
