Georgetown College softball opened Mid-South Conference play with a pair of tough games at Shawnee State University. The Tigers (18-6, 1-1 MSC) split the afternoon in Portsmouth, Ohio.

The Bears (7-7, 1-4) scored two in the sixth for just enough insurance in the game one win, 7-5. The host team then tied up game two in the fifth. This game would go into international tiebreaking rules – a runner starts on second at the beginning of the eighth inning. The 10 inning affair ended in wild fashion. After GC scored in the top of the 10th, SSU tried to respond, but a long fly with one out seemed to end the game when Corrin Robinson's throw from shallow center beat the runner from third. However, a collision resulted in a dropped ball. Georgetown then appealed the runner leaving too early from third, the appeal was confirmed and the Tigers won 5-4.

Georgetown College softball swept the Mid-South Conference weekly honors as Sydney Goyette earned Player of the Week and Audrey Dodd Pitcher of the Week. For each student-athletes this is the first time being recognized this season and in their careers.

Goyette tore the cover off the ball with four homeruns in as many games, helping the Tigers (15-5) to a perfect week. She hit .667 for the week with a 1.800 slugging percentage. The senior from Middletown, Ind. recorded at least two hits a game and drove in 12 runs. Twice she tallied three hits, 3-for-3 with two home runs against Rochester College in an 8-0 win and 3-for-5 with a home run and a double in 17-6 win over Kentucky Christian University.

Georgetown College softball dodged the rain and picked up two big, run-rule wins Monday over Rochester College. The Tigers (13-5) blew open game one with a Sydney Goyette, two-run homerun in the bottom of the fifth and dominated for the rest of the day. GC won 9-1 in six and 8-0 in five.

"Today, at the plate, I was making sure I was getting good timing, separating from my hands and waiting for the ball to come in," Goyette said. "I had no idea it was going to be such a good day at the plate. I just knew that I have been in a little bit of a slump since our Tennessee trip, and I needed to address somethings about my swing and focus on being more productive at the plate.

"Fortunately, those small adjustments turned out to be a really awesome day at the plate."

Georgetown College softball split Saturday games with Purdue University Northwestern. The Tigers (8-4) started the day with a rally win over the Pride, 9-6. Then it was a pitcher's duel that the visitor's clung on for the win, 4-3.

PNW started hot with a two-run homerun in the first inning. However, GC settled down, got the outs and got to work offensively, chipping away at the lead for a 2-2 tie headed to the third. Northwestern (1-1) tallied four in that inning, but GC notched three themselves in the bottom of the frame to stay in the hunt.

Cassidy Janes got the rally going with a lead-off double in the sixth. A pair of singles brought her in for the tie, but then a fielder's choice and a pop out made it seem as though the energy was shifting back to the Pride.

Katie Young came up firing on a one-hop single into the outfield and caught Micah Seibert trying to stretch the hit to a double. It was just such defensive plays that allowed Georgetown College softball to take 10-2 and 5-2 wins over visiting Union College.

"We've been focusing on fielding and doing better on the defensive side, good to know they are listening," said GC coach Thomas Thornton with a smile.

His Tigers improve to 7-3 on the season and take a 3-1 series victory over the Bulldogs (2-7). Game two Kara Howard retired nine straight, including the stellar play that got Seibert off the base paths. Howard started the fifth with a walk, but quickly worked out of that with a sacrifice bunt out followed by a pop up and ground out.
