Georgetown College football finished the 2016 spring season with the 119th annual Orange & Black Scrimmage. Black made several plays late that helped them pull off the 18-7 win, sealed by a quarterback scramble in the final 1:30 of the game. Black now leads the series 60-59.

"We had a nice crowd and gave our fans one more look at us this season," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "This is a rewarding night for the players for all their effort through weights, conditioning and drills."

Black got the scoring going early in the second quarter when Clay McKee hit Ross Cox for a long touchdown strike. On the ensuing drive, Ozzie Mann found Alan Williams for the score and Josh Depp hit the extra point for a 7-6 advantage.

The rematch of Shawn Kennedy against Erik Barron was very different. Kennedy still threw a gem for Georgetown College baseball, but Barron was equally as untouchable this time leading to a thrilling Mid-South Conference Tournament Opening Series game one.

Cumberland University came to Georgetown for a best of three and started with a ninth inning rally and win. Ryan Dickison started it with a lead-of double for the Phoenix (31-25). The Tigers (30-23) defense was prepared for a bunt and played it perfectly. Chaz Meadows fielded it and caught Dickison charging for home. The senior came up firing to Jalen Poindexter. Dickison slammed on the breaks, but seemed to be an easy out until Poindexter mishandled the ball and everyone was safe.

The rematch of the 2015 NWLL National Tournament third place game did not disappoint Thursday afternoon in the opening round of the 2016 tournament. Georgetown College women's lacrosse built a large enough cushion and held on against No. 7 Robert Morris University – Chicago. The No. 2 Tigers (12-2) won 8-7 to advance to the semifinals for the second straight season. They will face No. 3 Lawrence Technological Institute, an 18-5 winner in its first round game, 7:30 pm Friday in Grand Rapids, Mich.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "There isn't a team here that isn't a top-notch program. It was our first game in almost a week with a lot of extra distractions with travel, hotels and the banquet. With a young team that can be scary, but we focused in and took care of business."

Track & Field - Wed, Apr. 27, 2016

The night was dreary, but the results promising as Georgetown College men's and women's track team traveled to Ohio for the Night Moves Meet.

The men finished sixth overall, third among NAIA schools, with 10 teams competing. The women finished fifth, third among NAIA schools, against the same 10 programs.

"We had three weather delays, which started and stopped the field events," said coach Lucas Garnett. "The track events started an hour late because of all the rain and the meet ended around 1 am. It was a long day, but very successful. Everyone keeps improving."

The Tigers had several personal records and season bests Friday in Ohio.

Karina Egger, Alec Higdon-Burgess, Kaya Kelly, Kristen Just, Ben Peterson, Dustin Wheeler and Kater Riddle all set new personal records.
