Every class is unique and special for their own reasons and this past November women's soccer coach Leah Crews Castleman said goodbye to five very talented seniors. This bunch, for the better part of their tenure at Georgetown, was the backbone of the defense and the offensive fire power up top. With every graduation comes another group with a chance to meddle their talents with Castleman's game plan, taking Georgetown to another height in competition.
As of early June, the sixth-year coach has added seven true freshmen for the 2013 season – Shelby Vogel, Brittney Moshos, Kelsey Aerni, Danielle Lang, Amanda Hasl, Max Zimmer and Abby Sobolewski.
"I'm really excited about this incoming class," Castleman said. "I think they all possess the skills to help out immediately, while also giving depth. It is difficult to lose five players at once let alone five that meant so much to this program."
Georgetown College women's soccer will have a familiar face returning to assist the team this fall. Tiger athletics hired recent graduate and former Tiger Caitlin Williams as the assistant for coach Leah Crews Castleman.
"I'm thrilled that Caitlin has decided to join us for a sixth season as a part of the Georgetown College women's soccer program, this time as a member of the coaching staff," Castleman said. "Caitlin brings a wealth of knowledge to the program as she has played every position and has quite a bit of coaching experience at the club level. She is a natural leader, a person who can inspire others through her love of the game, excitement for training and passion for winning.
"More importantly, she is a person of very high character and will continue to serve as an outstanding role model for the players. There are hands down no other potential candidates who love this program as much as Caitlin; she will put her heart and soul into every second she spends working with this team."
Georgetown College women's soccer team has been using the spring to test its skills ago some opponents not usually seen during the regular season.
This past weekend Midway College and NCAA Division II Oakland City came in for a bit of a round robin scrimmage in seven-on-seven action.
"It was nice to be able to host a spring series rather than always having to travel as we have in the past," said GC coach Leach Crews Castleman. "I broke my team up into two different teams and each group played two games. We won all four."
Georgetown College women's soccer players Lauren Brooks and Caitlin Williams received another honor Friday morning for their work in the classroom. The pair were named to the 2012 Daktronics-NAIA Women's Soccer Scholar-Athletes. In order to be recognized, the individuals must be a junior or higher and maintain a 3.5 grade point average. The NAIA had 492 athletes make the team this year, 18 from the Mid-South Conference.
Georgetown College women's soccer season came to an end Wednesday afternoon in the Mid-South Conference semifinals to No. 3 Lindsey Wilson College.
"If we want to accomplish what we want to accomplish, at some point we are going to have to go through them," said Tiger coach Leah Crews Castleman. "They got up quick, but I think we played a much better second half. Sarah (Henke) made good on her opportunity and gave us life there in the second."
