Tate Burke joins team as special guest

Build, tone and sculpt are three words most often associated with the human muscles. What if your biggest fear was not losing the fight to fatty tissue, but not being able to keep any muscle in your body.

It is what patients diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and their families face every day. The body stops producing dystrophin, the protein in the body that provides linkage to the extracellular matrix. The absence of which renders muscle cells susceptible to necrosis – the death of most or all of the cells in an organ or tissue.

"Our little boy has it, he is four," said Katie Burke. "Watching him go from being a two-year-old getting into everything to an almost five-year-old that can't walk upstairs breaks your heart."

Men's Soccer - Mon, Sep. 22, 2014 at 9:50 AM

Hunter Conner netted his second goal of the season, and the Georgetown College men's soccer team never looked back against Ohio Christian University Saturday. The Tigers (2-5) got an insurance goal from Zach Henson in the 2-0 win.

"It was a great way to wrap up the week," said GC coach Derek Willis. "We had some breakdowns on the road against a very good Union team earlier in the week. It was really nice to see the guys recover and take advantage of those early opportunities to put ourselves in control of the game."

 
Men's Cross Country - Sun, Sep. 21, 2014 at 12:40 PM

Georgetown College men's cross country team finished seventh overall Saturday at the Berea Invitational, but three of the schools above the guys were NCAA opponents.

"That is the way it works in cross country and track and field," said GC coach Todd McDaniel. "Most every meet or event is an open competition so you expect to see a wide variety out at something like this. What you try to do with something like this is focus on the guys performances individually and how we can improve upon that."

The Tigers had four of the five scorers finish inside the Top 50 in the race with 95 runners. Jacob Hanser led the way, finishing 17th in 28 minutes 58 seconds.

 
Women's Cross Country - Sun, Sep. 21, 2014 at 12:25 PM

Sometimes the path less taken is the way to go, but not in cross country. Fortunately, for Georgetown College and the women's cross country team doing some of the men's loop was not a devastating change to the overall outcome Saturday at the Berea Invitational.

The Tigers finished second behind Tennessee Wesleyan, and for the second week in a row Tayler Godar captured the top spot.
"The top runners didn't run in the wrong direction for long, but it probably did alter the times by about 10 to 15 seconds," said GC coach Todd McDaniel. "The lead runners, which included Tayler, Marissa Hale and Miranda Mullins were told to take the men's first loop which goes behind the finish line instead of in front of it."
