Georgetown College women's lacrosse picks up another solid class for the blossoming program. Third-year Tiger coach Brandon Davis has inked 10 players for the 2019 class.
"I'm really very excited about this diverse group we have coming in," Davis said. "We keep getting the right pieces to put the foundation together. As a coach I have to access on the fly these first couple of years as I'm not really graduating my players. I want to find the ones that will fit so that the group continues to mesh well and help us be successful on- and off-the field."
This is Davis' second big recruiting class, adding 10 players – Avery Blackmon, Doreen Brabble, Madison Cobb, Lauren Feltman, Penka Heusinkveld, Taylor Irwin, Rachel Kidwell, Katharine Leighty, Taylor Mitchell and Jade Smith-Jolicoeur.
Georgetown College women's lacrosse coach Brandon Davis is pleased to introduce his first assistant Brook West.
"We are excited to have Brook on board," Davis said. "She has a great knowledge of the game and is eager to see lacrosse thrive in Kentucky."
West is a Kentucky native, growing up in Lexington before moving to Colorado. She was a Second Team All-Continental League Attack Team playing for Douglas County High School in Castle Rock, Co. West also earned DCHS Best Women's Attack Player and Academic All-American.
She returned to Kentucky, attending Eastern Kentucky University and majoring in chemistry. From 2007-10 she was head coach of the all-city Lexington High School Girls Varsity Lacrosse team.
Georgetown College Lacrosse is proud to announce its second recruiting class leading into the 2015 season. GC finished only two games under .500, a strong start for a new program. As coach Brandon Davis looks toward the future, this class will help build on 2014 successes, and achieve new heights in 2015 – the team's first full varsity competition. The incoming freshman class hails from as far away as Minnesota, Florida and Connecticut. This group of talented student-athletes has already achieved success not only on the lacrosse field, but in the classroom, and in the community.
"These six young ladies will provide stability, depth and an abundance of lacrosse knowledge and success," Davis said. "I'm very excited what the future holds for this program and how my second recruiting process went."
Signing with the Tigers was Lexii Grajczyk, Lauren Bruun-Bryant, Laura Cuseo, Lizzie Darrow, Samantha Dearing and Jessica MaClugage.
The pace was fast and furious, but once Georgetown College women's lacrosse coach Brandon Davis got his defense settled the style played well into the Tigers hands. In the final match of the club season, GC defeated Wilmington College 26-13. It was 12-10 Georgetown at the break.
"A college match high score is usually 15 goals or so, but both teams were scoring frenetically in the first half," Davis said. "We were making stops defensively, but I could see in our defenders the excitement in how well we were translating on offense.
"In our first 10 offensive possessions we had nine goals, so the ladies were really trying to get it quickly to the offensive side. Once I got them to play control ball and make better passes, we outscored Wilmington 14-3 in the second half."
Georgetown College women's lacrosse is gearing up for its spring season, part of that is selecting a team captain. Coach Brandon Davis named Kaysie Smith the Tigers first-ever captain Thursday afternoon.
"It is another step on this journey of building a program and very exciting," Davis said. "Kaysie is a clear leader and an excellent choice. She shows great leadership on- and off-the-field, as well as a model student-athlete."
