Georgetown College made official what has already been in the works for years. Shawn Combs, a Cynthiana, Ky. native, came to the nearby prestigious institute four years ago as an untraditional student and joined the bass fishing club team. He quickly became a well-known face on campus and one of the team's top fishers.
Upon graduation, he was not ready to leave behind what he had molded through recruiting and building for four seasons. Recently, Combs and GC director of athletics Brian Evans discussed the situation and came to a decision that Combs would take over the fishing program as its first official head coach.
Georgetown College senior Bea Cameron caps off her stellar lacrosse season with one final accolade. The Lexington, Ky. native is the 2016 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association NAIA Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
IWLCA picks one player senior or graduate student from each level with a 3.5 grade point average or higher and they must be a starter or significant reserve.
Cameron posted a 3.53 with a psychology and environmental science double major. Athletically, she finished the year as National Women's Lacrosse League Defender of the Year and earned All-American status in the NWLL as well as NAIA.
Georgetown College takes the student portion of student-athlete very seriously. The Tigers flexed their muscle, brain power, once again with eight NAIA scholar teams. For a team to be considered for this award, as a group, it must average a 3.0 grade point average counting all eligible varsity athletes.
"It's a proud day for Georgetown," said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. "Our accomplishments on the floor and field are evident, but what matters is what these young men and women do inside the classroom.
"Our coaches take this seriously and the message translates down."
Georgetown College football standout and NAIA All-American Nick Seither ('14) wasted little time making an impact play for the Cleveland Gladiators. The defensive specialist did something in his first Arena League Football game he did just twice as a Tiger – score.
LA KISS scored three straight times in the third quarter to grab a 56-48 lead. The KISS went for an onside kick, but the ball was batted toward their own 10-yard line. Seither scooped it up and ran it in for six points. The Gladiators missed the two-point conversion and Cleveland eventually lost 63-61.
Georgetown College softball had a terrific year. The Tigers found their stride midway through the season that put them on the heels of nationally ranked Mid-South Conference foes Lindsey Wilson College and Campbellsville University.
A lot of the success came as sophomore Chaselyn Allgeier flexed her muscle in the leadoff spot as the designated player. Her banner season led to a new pinnacle for the Tiger program. The outfielder and hitting specialist is Georgetown College softball's first player to earn NAIA All-American status.
"We've had some really great players come through this program so this honor speaks a lot for what Chaselyn did this past season and her potential going forward," said GC coach Thomas Thornton.
