Georgetown College has a pair of Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association student-athlete honorees. Wednesday afternoon the organization announced its team honors and the Tigers were one of six NAIA schools to be recognized for their cumulative grade point average.
Friday afternoon, Anna Joy Thompson and Brooklyn Fox, were among 23 NAIA student-athletes to maintain at least a 3.5 GPA. The pair were also honored by the National Women's Lacrosse League at the end of the season as academic All-Americans and as NAIA Scholar Athletes.
Georgetown College women's lacrosse team received another academic honor Wednesday afternoon. The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaching Association announced the 2015-16 Zag Sports Academic Honor Squads. The Tigers were one of only six NAIA programs to have tallied a team cumulative 3.0 grade point average or higher and one of 276 total among NCAA Division I, II, III and NAIA teams.
"It speaks volumes to me when we are as successful as we are on the field and receiving accolades such as this," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "They have to work extra hard and be ever mindful of time and planning in order to excel in the classroom while playing a sport.
"I could not be prouder of my team and for the way they took care of business inside the classroom as well as on the field."
This past weekend, two former Georgetown College women's basketball players joined up with two other ladies to form the Roadhouse Roadies in the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball tournament in Columbus, Ohio.
Teonia McCune and Mykal Farris helped captain and former University of Rio Grande player Julia Heaberlin and Portia Durrett battle through four games for the title. There were 11 teams total for the two-day women's division with the Roadhouse Roadies going undefeated through the double-elimination event.
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.
