Georgetown College had up and down times this past weekend at the Mid-South Conference Meet, but in the end challenged itself and set several new Tiger records.
"It's the way it goes sometimes," said GC coach Todd McDaniel. "You will have off days and meets. However, I was really pleased overall to see us make improvements in a couple of areas. You want to win the conference meet for bragging rights, but we still have two more big meets that could determine our placing some athletes at the national meet. That is what matters."
Georgetown College women's track and field is proving to be a force of which to take notice. This past weekend at University of the Cumberlands invitational, the Tigers finished second among conference teams at the meet. Overall they finished fifth with 63 points, host UC was the lone school to score better with 69 points in fourth.
Lindsey Wilson College finished sixth with 62 points. St. Catharine College was the lone other Mid-South Conference in the 14-team field. It finished eighth with 24 points.
Keith Arutoff is battling injury, but he is not letting that stop him from being one of the best throwers in the Mid-South Conference Track & Field competitions.
The senior, who is in need of Tommy John surgery, has yet to lose in the first three meets of the season and this past weekend at the Lindsey Wilson Invitational won the hammer and discus to earn MSC Field Athlete of the Week. This is his second time earning the award in his career and first this season.
Georgetown College men's and women's track and field teams tested their early season status against fellow Mid-South Conference foes this past weekend in the Lindsey Wilson College Invitational.
The men finished fifth out of eight, while the women were fourth. Keith Arutoff led the way for the Tigers in the field events. The senior set a new personal record in the hammer with a toss of 48.73, edging the Lindsey Wilson thrower by .7 meters. He scored another 10 points for the Tigers with his win in the discus with a throw of 43.14, almost two meters better than another Blue Raider.
Keith Arutoff chiseled out a new meet record at the Mid-South Conference Championship this past weekend, defending his own title and making sure Georgetown College is the only place to win the male hammer throw since it became an event in 2010.
The two-time winner eradicated the meet standard he set a season ago with a 45.53 toss, setting a new GC record as well. His 2011 conference throw was 40.81. Earlier this season he threw a 41.16 at the meet in Hanover, IN.
Obliterating a record is not uncommon for the junior. He was throwing 41.45 during his sophomore season in discus, but the second meet this year he threw a 45.49.
