Women's Cross Country - Sat, Sep. 16, 2017

Georgetown College women's and men's cross country teams finally got to tackle the course in Berea Saturday morning. The Tigers first meet of the season was to be in the town just more than an hour south of campus, however, Hurricane Harvey's remnants canceled the race.

The women ran first and tore through it for a fourth place finish – second best NAIA team there as well as beat out Mid-South Conference foes Campbellsville University and University of Pikeville. The men followed and finished sixth, edging Pikeville behind another freshmen laden performance.

"I'm pleased with the way my guys are stepping up and maturing," said GC coach Lucas Garnett. "This was the first five-mile race of the freshmen's careers. Their inexperience showed today, but I am happy with their effort."

Cross Country - Fri, Sep. 8, 2017

Georgetown College women's and men's cross country teams opened the season by seeing how they stack up against Mid-South Conference foes at the championship site. The 2017 season looks bright for the women, while the men's future overall looks exciting.

"This is a great start all the way around for this season," said GC coach Lucas Garnett. "This is the deepest women's team we have had in a few years and that depth helped us today."

Lucy Berlanga paced the Tigers despite battling some breathing issues throughout the race. The senior dropped from a top 10 position but she preserved and rallied late for a 14th place finish in 21 minutes four seconds and five tenths of a second. One of the competitors she passed was Liz Scarlato. The freshman kept pace with the senior though and finished in 15th in 21:14.09.

All five scoring runners for the women finished in the Top 20 runners, while the top six Tigers all crossed in 21 minutes.

Georgetown College cross country teams celebrated another successful season at the Mid-South Conference banquet Friday. Five Tigers were honored for their hard work not only as athletes, but as students as well.

The league office awards student-athletes of at least sophomore standing with a 3.25 grade point average conference academic honors.

For the second straight year, women's cross country's Sydney Berry earned the honor. Karina Egger received her first academic honors.

Cross Country - Thu, Nov. 3, 2016

Georgetown College cross country runners understand the value of a shoe and for the second straight year the Tigers are helping to extend that for the betterment of the community.

In the second annual shoe drive, coach Lucas Garnett and his teams collected nearly double what it did in 2015 – a portion of which went to a re-use-a-shoe program.

"The manager told me we accounted for about 75 percent of their donations this past year, and he expects the same this year," Garnett said. "They take shoes that are no longer wearable and recycle them for synthetic track and playground surfaces."

The total was 517 a year ago, which was crushed by the mountain of 1002 pairs of shoes donated by the deadline of 2 pm Monday. Justin Downs helped the team reach the 1,000 mark in a unique way.

Georgetown College cross country teams continue to challenge themselves against larger fields of competition, including numerous NCAA teams. Friday evening was no different in the Jenna Strong Classic. The men had steady progress throughout the race as the Tigers were 33rd 600-meters into the race and 1,400-meters later were at 29th. At the end of the 8,000-meter race, GC finished 28th.

On the women's side, it was consistency. At the two check points, same as the men, the female Tigers were 22nd and that is where they finished at the end of the 5,000-meter race in a pack of 38 teams.

"This is the best race the men have run all season by a long shot," said GC coach Lucas Garnett. "The men have had a rough go so far – injuries, illnesses, various setbacks. It was awesome to finally see them all well and together on the same day.

"We had seven men running and had seven season best times – I like those numbers – with three personal records and one not far off. We have a very young team with a ton of potential. They are just now starting to show what they are capable of doing."
