In what's already been a busy offseason, Georgetown College volleyball coach Nick Griffin has announced the additions of Florida-native Allie Card and Texas-native Erin Kearney to his 2015 class.

ALLIE CARD (The Rock School/Vision)
Card is a defensive specialist from The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla. As a four-year starter and two-year captain for coach Stephanie Wyatt, Card led the Lady Lions to a 32-7 overall record and garnered all-tournaments honors at the 2014 NACA National Championships following their Division I Runner-Up finish.

She collected numerous other honors during her high school career including two-time All-Area, Team MVP Lion's Heart Award, WCJB North Central Florida Scholar-Athlete Award and National AP Scholar with Honors. She is currently the top of her class academically and leaves The Rock as their all-time leader in kills, digs and service points.

 
Acrobatics & Tumbling - Tue, Jan. 27, 2015 at 1:20 PM

Georgetown College decided in the fall of 2014 to start an Acrobatics and Tumbling team. On January 1, Alicia Castagneto joined the Tiger staff as head coach for A&T, bringing her vast knowledge and experience in the gymnastics world to Georgetown.

The California native understands the competitive drive involved, starting her gymnastics career at age two. She competed on the regional scene from age seven to 14, stopping at level 8. She took two years off from the circuit before starting to compete again nationally in Trampoline & Tumbling.

Castagneto did that until age 19. At her final nationals, she placed second in tumbling, fifth on double mini trampoline and eighth in trampoline.

Twice this season freshman Darion Burns has tallied 12 points. Saturday against St. Catharine in a Mid-South Conference showdown, the Flemingsburg, Ky. native tallied 20 on a perfect 8-of-8 shooting, helping No. 17 Georgetown College men's basketball to a 72-55 victory in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

The Tigers (17-3, 6-2 MSC) blistered the nets from inside the three-point arc in the first half, 68.2 percent. Burns had 11 at the break, but came up with a couple of big steals and flushes to keep the Patriots (6-12, 2-6) at bay.

Five players in Orange & Black reached double figures against SCC. Noah Cottrill had 16, Tony Kimbro chipped in with 11 and Deondre McWhorter and Corey Washburn each had 10.

Kimbro led with 10 rebounds and McWhorter had eight.

Jessica Foster tallied another new career-high in points, her third time to do so this season, and Georgetown College women's basketball took a 73-69 win over St. Catharine College in the Mid-South Conference tilt Saturday.

The No. 25 Tigers (11-7, 2-5) trailed by one at half and even by as many as eight in the early portion of the final 20 minutes. Foster scored 10 of her 26 points in a four minute span that put GC ahead for good. The lead eventually ballooned to 14, but the feisty Patriots (8-12, 1-6) got it back within four, 67-63, with 1:21 to play.

Lena Bramblett's team used fouling and a few untimely Tiger turnovers to try to get closer, but freshman Tralyn Woodard hit four straight from the line to help ice the game. Sophomore Emilie Ziese also picked up a huge charge that also stemmed the tied.

Women's Basketball - Thu, Jan. 22, 2015

Georgetown College women's basketball has had one tough stretch. The No. 25 Tigers played NCAA Division I Northern Kentucky in an exhibition, went to No. 14 Shawnee State University and then came home to play No. 3 Campbellsville University. CU came to town Thursday in a thrilling Mid-South Conference rivalry tilt, walking away 55-39 victors.

"That's one ridiculous set of games and that doesn't include our travels to Texas playing a Top 15 team and then to California for another Top 15 team," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "We've grown every step and it is hard when you are so competitive to be patient with the process, but I think we are on the verge of being a team people will not want to face."

Georgetown's woes inside the MSC, a league with seven of the eight teams in the Top 25 or receiving votes, at the hands of Campbellsville. GC falls to 10-7 and 1-5 in conference play, while CU improved to 19-1 and 5-1.
