Avery Blackmon netted two free position shots and an unassisted goal, helping Georgetown College lacrosse claw back into Thursday's NAIA Invitational Championship quarterfinal game with Indiana Tech. The Warriors (15-4) jumped out to a quick 7-1 lead in less than seven minutes. However, GC (9-5) showed no quit as Merrisa Heraldson scored her second goal of the game. The No. 5 Tigers went on a 4-1 run at that point to back within three with just more than three minutes remaining.

However, Indiana Tech scored three more goals before the half to take a commanding 11-5 advantage. A 5-0 spurt out of the break made it a running clock and the Warriors never looked back. Blackmon scored three more times in a span of six minutes to bring the game back to clock stoppage, 17-8, but Tech added the final goal to finish off the rain soaked affair.

Georgetown College women's lacrosse went 4-1 in the NAIA Independent Conference and collected an onslaught of honors as the season wrapped up this past Friday. The No. 5 Tigers (9-4) picked up five first-team honors and two second-team with two specialty awards.

"When you are in a conference with the top ranked team in the nation and receive as many accolades as we did speaks volumes for what these young ladies have done all season," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "When other coaches see what you see and feel about your players the way we do, it's pretty validating. We challenged ourselves this year and this team has stood up to that test and improved. We are really hitting a stride and are looking forward to postseason."

For the second straight season Merrisa Heraldson, Avery Blackmon and Rachel Kidwell were first-team, joining them were Sam Dearing and Amber Hunley. Dearing was honorable mention in 2016 and it was Hunley first NAIA conference honor.
