Chicks dig the long ball, or so the saying goes. Seems very true for Georgetown College softball team. The Tigers (7-5, 6-2) blasted seven four-bag shots in game two Friday with St. Catharine College on the way to a 26-3 win in five innings.

"It's been a while since I've seen a hitting display such as that," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "All the way through the lineup, we are just connecting well at the plate."

Georgetown tallied 20 totally hits in the onslaught, with every player getting at least one. Shelby Engle continued her hot streak Friday. The junior had one home run in the game one loss. She had four hits in game two, three of which were round trip tickets. Through 12 games, Engle has seven home runs in 35 at-bats.

Georgetown College softball has been on a hitting tear through the early portion of the season. It continued Friday in a doubleheader with St. Catharine College. Unfortunately a batch of pitching woes led to a 17-16 defeat in game one of the four game series.

"We've been solid in both phases, you will have your off days," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "You just hope one of those lapses doesn't happen when another team is red hot. That is what we ran into during game one with the Patriots."

The Tigers (6-5, 5-2 MSC) started strong by scoring twice in the first inning. However, senior ace Kayla Williams did not make it through an inning as SCC scored eight runs in the bottom half of the inning.

A lead-off solo home run trimmed the deficit in half and then a three-run shot put the Patriots ahead. They added a third home run blast with a grand slam. In all, St. Catharine had eight runs on six hits in that first at bat.

Hot hitting continued as Georgetown College softball tallied two mercy-rule wins Tuesday at University of the Cumberlands. The Tigers (6-4, 5-1 MSC) blasted six home runs in route to 12-0 and 16-1 wins over the Patriots (12-6, 3-3).

GC had 25 hits in 58 plate appearances with seven walks and just three strikeouts. Inside the defensive circle, the Tigers pitching allowed just eight hits in two games.

"It was another good day in conference," said GC coach Thomas Thornton. "Our hitters took care of business of making every inning count. We waited a long time to get on a field and really play, I think that is showing in their hunger at the plate."

Georgetown jumped out early with an eight-run second inning and never looked back. Kayla Williams picked up her fourth win in five starts with one no decision. The senior Mid-South Conference Pitcher of the Week went three full innings and left with a 10-0 edge. Jessica Claxton finished off game one with two hitless innings.

Georgetown College softball opened Mid-South Conference action this past weekend with a bang. The Tigers (4-4, 3-1 MSC) split day one with University of Pikeville despite outhitting the Bears 21-8.

Senior Kayla Williams pitched a perfect game in the opener as GC cruised 9-0. UPike (7-7, 1-3) managed just five hits in game two, but pulled off the 7-3 victory.

"I was really pleased and proud of Kayla today," said Tiger coach Thomas Thornton. "A perfect game is so tough. So many little factors go into it. She has always been a very control pitcher for us, managing the game and dominating, but to get a perfect game is so awesome. I think I've been a part of coaching one other perfect game at Georgetown."

It has been a long and difficult first month for Georgetown College softball. Weather has wreaked havoc on the schedule as the Tigers finally opened play Saturday in Hattiesburg, Miss. Before that, the team's first 18 games were canceled. Georgetown split the day with University of Mobile.

The Tigers, receiving votes in the preseason poll, won the opener 6-4 and Mobile rallied for a 5-0 win in the nightcap. GC continues action at the William Carey tournament with a doubleheader against the host school Sunday.

Kayla Williams went the distance for the win, giving up 14 hits to the 32 batters the senior faced. She struck out two and walked one. Junior Sandy Young had a solid start at the plate. She went 4-of-4 with two RBI and a run scored. Emily Snow also had a multi-hit in the opener, going 2-of-3 with two runs scored.
