Georgetown College softball opens Mid-South Conference play 2 pm EST in Bowling Green, Ky. against University of the Cumberlands. The Tigers (32-12) will then play a to-be-determined opponent at 6 pm EST based on the results of everyone's first round in the double-elimination tournament.

Thursday evening, though, all seven teams took a moment to honor the collective good season for the league with the annual banquet.

GC had eight young ladies earn all-conference honors and another earn Gold Glove recognition for the best fielding percentage at her specific fielding position.

Senior Chelsae Osborn led off the bottom of the sixth with a single and came around on a triple from Kara Howard as the go ahead run on senior day. Osborn, a four-year starting walk-on, celebrated senior day with Sydney Goyette in style – a 2-1 win over Kentucky Christian University.

"I've told them, sometimes we've got to win ugly," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "We played the Knights a few weeks ago in Grayson and they've gotten better as you expect every team as the season goes on. They were ready to play.

"Chelsae had a couple good hits and was on in a key situation. Sydney pressed a little, but defensively made solid plays and sophomore pitcher Hannah Morton came in and played a great game."

Osborn went 2-for-3 with a run scored to finish her home stand as a Tiger with a flourish.

Tennis - Tue, Apr. 25, 2017

Georgetown College men's and women's tennis wrapped up a great 2017 with the Mid-South Conference banquet honors. Two Tigers earned first-team all-conference, while four more were on second-team. GC also knocked it out in the classroom with nine of the 57 student-athletes honored.

Shae Henry and Ryo Takeda have played much of the top spot for the Tigers in singles and doubles all season and are no surprise as the first-team honorees. This is Henry's third straight year earning all-conference and Takeda's second.

Joining Henry on the women's side, Lauren Fazenbaker, Natalie Fiepke and Madelyn Kauffman were second team. It is Fiepke's second all-conference honor. Tristan Nosek was the other men's representative and is his second time being recognized.

Women's Lacrosse - Mon, Apr. 24, 2017

Georgetown College women's lacrosse went 4-1 in the NAIA Independent Conference and collected an onslaught of honors as the season wrapped up this past Friday. The No. 5 Tigers (9-4) picked up five first-team honors and two second-team with two specialty awards.

"When you are in a conference with the top ranked team in the nation and receive as many accolades as we did speaks volumes for what these young ladies have done all season," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "When other coaches see what you see and feel about your players the way we do, it's pretty validating. We challenged ourselves this year and this team has stood up to that test and improved. We are really hitting a stride and are looking forward to postseason."

For the second straight season Merrisa Heraldson, Avery Blackmon and Rachel Kidwell were first-team, joining them were Sam Dearing and Amber Hunley. Dearing was honorable mention in 2016 and it was Hunley first NAIA conference honor.
