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."
This past weekend Georgetown College women's lacrosse held another first. The Tigers hosted an all-comers high school lacrosse camp that brought in 75 athletes from five states and 17 high schools.
"It is exciting with everything we do having that newness to it," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "It was great to see that many interested in taking part of our first ever camp. I think it went as well as can be expected for a first time."
Campers came from as far as New York, North Carolina and Indiana. Kentucky and Ohio were the other two states represented. The range of experience was also wide – brand new to seasoned-veterans of 10 years.
Georgetown College women's lacrosse will be holding a preseason camp Saturday, Feb. 1 at Toyota Stadium. Athletes ninth through 12th graders are invited to attend. All experience is welcome and players will be divided up into groups from beginners to advanced.
In addition to four hours of instruction with Brandon Davis, head coach for the Tigers' new program, players will have a sports nutrition session with the GC athletic training staff and a question and answer session on recruiting.
