Georgetown College women's lacrosse faced down the defending national champions Saturday and despite distractions and disruptions remained singularly focused for a second straight win.
The Tigers (2-0) handed preseason No. 1 Robert Morris University – Chicago a 15-8 defeat and never trailed against the National Women's Lacrosse League 2014 winners.
"So many things could have derailed what we were doing," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "I'm extremely proud of the way we adapted all week, prepared and stayed together through the weather distractions. We talk all the time about how character is revealed with how you react to adversity."
Georgetown picked right up where it left off in a 22-0 win Feb. 14. Within the first nine minutes it was 3-0 Tigers; they never looked back.
Georgetown College women's lacrosse is just one game into the 2015 inaugural season, but the team easily picked out the leaders for captains earlier this week.
Kaysie Smith was selected this past year's club season and stays captain for this season, while sophomore Merrisa Heraldson and senior Bea Cameron were also tabbed to form the trio.
"I've always thought it best to let the players pick because this is a nod to who they look to for guidance amongst their peers," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "I've not once been shocked by who my players select as natural leaders always rise out of every group."
Georgetown College women's lacrosse match Saturday against Point University is postponed due to the extreme weather situation.
The Tigers (1-0) kicked off the inaugural varsity season with an impressive and decisive 22-0 win this past Saturday. They were set for game two against the West Point, Ga. team when the storm hit this past Monday.
Georgetown College women's lacrosse team started off with a bang. The historic day everyone waited two-plus years for came Saturday – Valentine's Day. The Tigers (1-0) gave fans a lot to love in a 22-0 win over Truett McConnell (0-2).
"Good start," said GC coach Brandon Davis with a smile. "We've been ready to play this game for a while and it showed. I was proud of the way my team controlled the ball and took charge the whole game."
The Bears, from Cleveland, Ga., won the opening draw control and that was about the only bright spot for the visitors. Lindsey Woosley picked up the first ground ball and it was all Georgetown from there.
Lauren Bruun-Bryant scored the first ever official goal for the Tigers and 11 different players found the back of the net. Defender Brooklyn Fox capped the scoring late in the second half.
To say 792 days has flown by and also crawled along is the accurate oxymoron Georgetown College women's lacrosse coach Brandon Davis has lived.
In December 2012, Director of Athletics Brian Evans hired the Louisville graduate and Sacred Heart Academy coach to build the Tigers lacrosse program from scratch. It was not his first time with such an endeavor. He built UofL's men's program as well as helped SHA get rolling.
Saturday at 11 am all of the blood, sweat and tears of the two-plus years culminates in Georgetown's historic varsity season home-opener.
"It has been an interesting ride thus far," Davis said. "In so many ways it is hard to believe it has been two years, but over the past few months this opener could not get here fast enough.
"In order to really get a program to gain traction you need to be competing where the wins and losses count and real learning and recruiting begins."
