This past weekend, two former Georgetown College women's basketball players joined up with two other ladies to form the Roadhouse Roadies in the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball tournament in Columbus, Ohio.
Teonia McCune and Mykal Farris helped captain and former University of Rio Grande player Julia Heaberlin and Portia Durrett battle through four games for the title. There were 11 teams total for the two-day women's division with the Roadhouse Roadies going undefeated through the double-elimination event.
Georgetown College made official what has already been in the works for years. Shawn Combs, a Cynthiana, Ky. native, came to the nearby prestigious institute four years ago as an untraditional student and joined the bass fishing club team. He quickly became a well-known face on campus and one of the team's top fishers.
Upon graduation, he was not ready to leave behind what he had molded through recruiting and building for four seasons. Recently, Combs and GC director of athletics Brian Evans discussed the situation and came to a decision that Combs would take over the fishing program as its first official head coach.
Georgetown College senior Bea Cameron caps off her stellar lacrosse season with one final accolade. The Lexington, Ky. native is the 2016 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association NAIA Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
IWLCA picks one player senior or graduate student from each level with a 3.5 grade point average or higher and they must be a starter or significant reserve.
Cameron posted a 3.53 with a psychology and environmental science double major. Athletically, she finished the year as National Women's Lacrosse League Defender of the Year and earned All-American status in the NWLL as well as NAIA.
Georgetown College takes the student portion of student-athlete very seriously. The Tigers flexed their muscle, brain power, once again with eight NAIA scholar teams. For a team to be considered for this award, as a group, it must average a 3.0 grade point average counting all eligible varsity athletes.
"It's a proud day for Georgetown," said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. "Our accomplishments on the floor and field are evident, but what matters is what these young men and women do inside the classroom.
"Our coaches take this seriously and the message translates down."
Georgetown College football standout and NAIA All-American Nick Seither ('14) wasted little time making an impact play for the Cleveland Gladiators. The defensive specialist did something in his first Arena League Football game he did just twice as a Tiger – score.
LA KISS scored three straight times in the third quarter to grab a 56-48 lead. The KISS went for an onside kick, but the ball was batted toward their own 10-yard line. Seither scooped it up and ran it in for six points. The Gladiators missed the two-point conversion and Cleveland eventually lost 63-61.
