After winning the first regular season Mid-South Conference title in epic fashion – nearly a four hour game that had 19 runs scored between the two teams – it was time for Senior Day's ceremonies. No. 7 Georgetown College baseball rode the rollercoaster of emotions and maybe was fazed a bit early in game three, but got down to business for another rally win.

"We might have gotten a little too comfortable," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "Campbellsville had some timely hitting in that first inning and jumped out on us. Our guys again showed great calm with this."

CU lead for the first two innings, but Georgetown finished off another conference sweep on its way to a 20-3 league-leading record with three games to play. The Tigers scored two in each of the second and third innings and rallied one more time for an 8-5 victory to finish off Senior Day with a bang.

Three and a half years ago Micah Baumfeld took over the reigns as head coach for Georgetown College baseball. In that time the No. 7 Tigers have won its first ever Mid-South Conference tournament, been ranked the highest it has ever been (7th), stayed in the rankings consistently and Saturday claimed its first-ever regular season title.

"It is a bit unreal, but these guys work hard all year long and this has been our goal," Baumfeld said. "It is extra special to do this on senior day and make it one more memory for so many guys who have made this transition possible."

Clay Hall and Shaun Meyer, two of the Tigers stacked pitching rotation, are two seniors that were instrumental in both the tournament crown and now the regular season title. Javier Saenz, Brett Smith, Justin Moore and Martin Lemus joined in 2013 and helped the team win its first game in the new national tournament format. Edwin Santiago came this year as a pitching and hitting threat.

Chelsea Riney had several hard hits during game two against Cumberland University Saturday. Unfortunately, they always seemed to be right at someone. When her Tigers (25-11, 18-8) needed it though, she roped a two-out single through the middle for the RBI winning hit. GC won 2-1 in the bottom of the seventh to finish off the season sweep of the Bulldogs (30-17-1, 16-12).

Chelsae Osborn reached as the second baseman dropped her line drive. Cassidy Taylor followed with a single to shallow right. Rachel Simms sacrificed the pair into scoring position. Taylor Shaw singled with one out, but her fly tailed and drop safely in right catching Osborn off guard at third. The freshman tried to score, but was thrown out sliding into home. Taylor moved to third and Shaw to second on the throw home, setting up Riney's game winner.

Georgetown College softball team used three hits in the bottom of the fourth to break game one open Saturday against Cumberland University. The Tigers (24-11, 17-8), currently receiving votes for the Top 25, added four runs and won 5-1.

Cassidy Taylor got it all started with a two out walk. Rachel Simms was hit by a pitch and Taylor Shaw followed with a single that gave GC all the offensive production it needed. This set the stage for Chelsea Riney's two RBI triple that blew open the game. The senior scored on Emily Snow's double to left.

The Bulldogs (30-16-1, 16-11) pushed across their lone run in the top of the seventh, trying to rally from the 5-0 deficit.

 
Men's Tennis - Fri, Apr. 18, 2014 at 8:25 PM

Georgetown College men's tennis team took a tough loss to NCAA Division II Davis & Elkins. While the score appears rough, though, it was four tiebreaker matches that decided it all. The Senators walked away from the first of what could be many as the Tigers look to join DII ranks in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference with the 8-1 win.

"We take all four of the matches that went to tiebreakers and our men win 5-4, it is how crazy tennis can be sometimes," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham.

DE took a solid 3-0 lead after doubles, but needed a 9-8 win at the number one seed. Gustavo Echeverria and Ryne Least have been playing lights out for Georgetown the past several weeks, but could not break Charles Brunel and Simon Meriau down the stretch.
