Georgetown College men's and women's golf team wrapped up the 2015 spring season at the Mid-South Conference tournament which included the season's award banquets.
The male Tigers had two of the 24 student-athletes to receive the All-Academic honor this past week. Wilson Allen and Corey Carter maintained a 3.25 grade point average or better while also being of sophomore standing or higher.
Georgetown College women's golf finished up the 2014-15 season with a sixth place finish in the Mid-South Conference tournament at Bardstown Country Club in Bardstown, Ky.
The Tigers shot a three-day total 1,166, edging out host St. Catharine.
Sydney Swingo led the way for Georgetown. The was tied for 16th after round one, moved up to sole control of 15 after two rounds and finished tied for 22nd.
Haley Hart shot an opening round 85 Monday as Georgetown College women's golf team competed in the two-day tournament in Prestonsburg, Ky. She finished tied for 19th and will wrap up play Tuesday.
As a team, the Tigers are sitting in eighth.
Major League Baseball has shoeless Joe Jackson, but Georgetown College women's golf has shoeless Lauren Von Ohlen. The senior from Louisville plays on a regularly enough basis sans shoes that coaches, her own and opposing, take notice when they are still on her feet.
So it was second nature after 14 holes on a soggy day for Von Ohlen to just be done with her shoes. She removed them and took one of the best swings of her life.
For only the second time in her career, and first during a countable match, Von Ohlen hit a hole-in-one. It was on the eighth hole at Maywood Country Club from 133 yards out with her 8-iron.
"I just stepped up, (coach) Taylor (Elder) gave me some advice and I hit it," Von Ohlen said. "Honestly this one seemed off a bit to the left, but the way it hit the hill on the edge of the green sent it right toward the hole."
Georgetown College women's golf team had a lot of exciting moments in the final match of the fall season. Senior Lauren Von Ohlen started it with a hole-in-one sans her shoes in the Mid-South Conference Fall match at Maywood Country Club. Then the Tigers went from seventh overall to sixth in the team competition by improving 21 shots from Monday to Tuesday.
Sydney Swingos led the way with a Top 10 finish, shooting 164 in two rounds. Von Ohlen finished 29th with a 178. Haley Hart was 35th with a 181, while Corri Collins was 39th with 190.
