Softball - Tue, Mar. 21, 2017 at 10:15 PM

Georgetown College softball opened Mid-South Conference play with a pair of tough games at Shawnee State University. The Tigers (18-6, 1-1 MSC) split the afternoon in Portsmouth, Ohio.

The Bears (7-7, 1-4) scored two in the sixth for just enough insurance in the game one win, 7-5. The host team then tied up game two in the fifth. This game would go into international tiebreaking rules – a runner starts on second at the beginning of the eighth inning. The 10 inning affair ended in wild fashion. After GC scored in the top of the 10th, SSU tried to respond, but a long fly with one out seemed to end the game when Corrin Robinson's throw from shallow center beat the runner from third. However, a collision resulted in a dropped ball. Georgetown then appealed the runner leaving too early from third, the appeal was confirmed and the Tigers won 5-4.

Rodnee Little came up clutch three times for Georgetown College in the waning innings Tuesday at Robert N. Wilson Field. The junior hit a two-RBI ground rule double with two outs in the fifth to tie Cincinnati Christian. His two-out RBI double in the seventh put Georgetown ahead for good and he added a two-out RBI single in the eighth as the Tigers (18-8) blew the game open in an 11-3 rally win.

"Rodnee was big tonight," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "We were struggling at the plate early, but that ground rule double got the momentum shifted in our favor. We then brought in Ryan Pearman, who shut down CCU."

Pearman pitched four innings of scoreless ball, facing 13 batters and striking out seven for the win.

Volleyball - Tue, Mar. 21, 2017 at 3:25 PM

Georgetown College athletics is excited to announce Christina Coleman will be taking over the Tiger volleyball program following Nick Griffin's resignation. GC went 29-10 this past season and made a fifth straight national tournament appearance.

"We wish Coach Griffin the best in his future endeavors, but we are ready to focus on our future. It is an honor to announce Coach Coleman as the program's fifth coach," said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. "Our previous four coaches have achieved levels of success we've come accustomed to both on the court and more importantly in the classroom. We know we will get nothing less from Christina. She had a lot of success in college and has a great track record as a college coach in helping athletes succeed on the court and off."

Coleman is no stranger to Georgetown. Following her graduation with a bachelors in physical education from Kentucky State University, the highly decorated volleyball player served as assistant coach for Scott County High School. In her one season with the Cardinals, she helped to guide a pair of all-conference and all-city selections.

Georgetown College lacrosse took a spring break trip to face conference foe Ave Maria University and NCAA Division II Slippery Rock this past week. The No. 4 Tigers (4-3) handed AMU a narrow 12-11 loss and nearly rallied against Slippery Rock in a 16-10 setback.

Men's Basketball - Thu, Mar. 16, 2017

Georgetown College men's basketball had a tough, first round match up in the 2017 Buffalo Funds – NAIA Division I Men's Basketball Championship. The No. 15 Tigers (24-7) drew No. 18 Park University (21-8), a team just 15 minutes from downtown Kansas City, Mo. and Municipal Auditorium. None the less, Edson Avila provided the spark and GC showed a lot of grit in beating a very talented and hot Pirates team, 81-72.

"I'm proud of the toughness we showed down the stretch," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We stepped up and made the stops we needed. Raymond (Baldwin) was solid against Xavier (Brown) – a three-time All-American – and Edson was huge."
