Track & Field - Thu, Jul. 7, 2016

Over the past four years, Georgetown College has watched the blossoming of one of its brightest stars on the cross country and track and field teams. Tayler Godar earned six Mid-South Conference all-conference honors – four straight in cross country and two in track and field. She went to six straight NAIA championships – three in cross country and three in track and field.

Then her biggest moment came this past spring when the Ohio native became the first modern era Georgetown College track athlete to achieve All-American status. Track and field is one of the rare sports where the athlete must finish in the top eight at the national meet in order to receive All-American status.

"It's really exciting for her and for our program as a whole," said GC coach Lucas Garnett. "I'm very proud of what Tayler was able to accomplish in her final year at Georgetown. Then I analyze just her final races as a Tiger and I'm blown away."

Setting new standards and reaching new goals were benchmarks for the 2016 Georgetown College men's and women's track and field team under new coach Lucas Garnett.

This past Thursday through Saturday expectations were far exceeded for the season when senior Tayler Godar became the first modern era Tiger track and field athlete to earn All-American status.

In the 2016 NAIA Women's Outdoor Track and Field Championship, the Ohio harrier found her stride in the final 300-meters of an 800-meter race to set the stage for her storybook ending.

Track & Field - Fri, May 6, 2016

Georgetown College men's and women's track and field teams finished the 2016 season at the Mid-South Conference Championship meet in Williamsburg, Ky. Day one of the two-day competition set the stage for a phenomenal conclusion. The Tigers broke multiple school records and were just shy of two others, while finishing sixth on the men's side and fifth on the women's.

"What unfolded at the conference meet was impressive to say the least," said GC coach Lucas Garnett. "We've been steadily improving all season, but to have this type of achievement on this stage in front of all our conference rivals sent a message for next year.

"Day one started us off right, but I had no idea what was in store with day two. It was easily highlighted with Tayler (Godar) qualifying for not one, but two national meet races with school-record setting times and top two finishes. It just rolled all weekend and was truly a fantastic ending to a fantastic season."
