Georgetown College volleyball was narrowly picked second in the Mid-South Conference preseason poll. The Tigers finished ranked No. 10 this past year and was the only league school to reach the elimination round of the national tournament. Regular season champion Lindsey Wilson College, which finished No. 16 and the only other MSC school in the national tournament, was picked to win the conference again.

"I'm not surprised by that and it should give our players something toward which to work," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "We beat Lindsey in a very competitive match in the conference tournament this past year, but they won both regular season meetings. It has been a great rivalry the past few seasons."

The Blue Raiders received 47 votes, including five of the eight first-place votes, from the conference coaches. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team.

Georgetown College athletics is excited to announce a new partnership with Glicod Communications out of Louisville, Ky. The marketing-based company will be helping the Tigers broaden its horizons as well as putting athletics back on radio. Moving forward all of football will be heard on WCGW 770 AM in central and northern Kentucky and WFIA 94.7 FM in Louisville and most of southern Indiana as radio-only broadcasts. Some of men's and women's basketball games will also be part of this new radio deal, but exact games have not been determined yet and thus which stations will carry it is also up in the air.

"We are really excited about this deal with Glicod," said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. "It is an opportunity to put us back on radio, which we've been away from for the past five years, and still stream an internet audio broadcast to our larger fan base."
