Georgetown College softball looks to strike out cancer while also striking out fellow students. Tuesday at 6 pm the Tigers will hold a Strike Out Cancer nexus event at the Tiger softball complex. Food, games, guest speakers and a home run derby against live softball pitching will go on throughout the event, which ends at 9 pm.
Admission is free and everyone receives five tickets upon entrance. Games and food will cost tickets and extra tickets will be available for purchase. Strike Out Cancer T-shirts will be on sale at $15 for one or $25 for two.
All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
Georgetown College softball began finding ways to reach out before even returning to school. The Tigers, dedicated in their community service, helped run the Special Olympics Regional Softball Tournament hosted in Georgetown.
The student-athletes stepped behind the scenes to do scorekeeping, announcing, field work and run any errands needed by the tournament officials.
"My team loves doing this every year," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "It is a weekend they all look forward to. It is long hours on a summer weekend, but that sacrifice isn't even a thought for these young women."
Georgetown College softball had a terrific year. The Tigers found their stride midway through the season that put them on the heels of nationally ranked Mid-South Conference foes Lindsey Wilson College and Campbellsville University.
A lot of the success came as sophomore Chaselyn Allgeier flexed her muscle in the leadoff spot as the designated player. Her banner season led to a new pinnacle for the Tiger program. The outfielder and hitting specialist is Georgetown College softball's first player to earn NAIA All-American status.
"We've had some really great players come through this program so this honor speaks a lot for what Chaselyn did this past season and her potential going forward," said GC coach Thomas Thornton.
It was late innings Friday and middle innings Saturday that did in the Georgetown College softball team against No. 4 Campbellsville University. The visitors used the third inning in each game Saturday to break open close contests. CU (43-7, 27-1) finished the sweep with a 7-0 and 11-3 win. Campbellsville has not lost since March 18.
Five hits and three errors helped to open up a stalemate game one. The CU Tigers scored five runs in that third inning and never looked back.
GC (27-18, 18-9) stayed strong on Senior Day, settling down and allowing just two more runs that game. Emily Snow led the hitting, going 2-for-3 against ace Victoria Decker. Chaselyn Allgeier, Alexis Bahl and Corrin Robinson all got a hit.
Georgetown College softball battled No. 4 Campbellsville University Friday in the first doubleheader of the weekend series. The visiting Tigers (41-7, 25-1) needed late bursts to take both games, 7-1 and 14-3. CU scored four runs in game one to break it open and eight runs in game two in the team's final at bat.
"We had our moments, just didn't capitalize on everything the way we need to when you play a team like Campbellsville," said GC coach Thomas Thornton.
The visitors belted eight home runs – five in game two – that helped to put pressure on Georgetown.
