Softball gets hot as Spring sets in

softballJust as the weather is warming up, the Georgetown College softball team have been on a hot streak. In fact, the Tigers are on a six-game winning streak, including two wins in a double header against Midway College.
GC has outscored their opponents 39-7 during their winning streak. GC (21-9 Mid-South Conference) defeated Midway 9-1 and 8-0.

Kayla Williams started out pitching for Georgetown and stayed in for three innings. Williams pitched three scoreless innings; then Engle took over.  Georgetown’s offense was rolling in the two games, hitting four home runs and a total of 25 base hits. Scoring for the Tigers started early with Katie Mann, who hit a two-run blast in the bottom of the second. Sandy Young got in on the homerun action as well in the same inning. Young and Mann are on the top of the homerun leaderboard for the Tigers, as they both have four on the season.

GC put up two more runs in the third inning off  a homerun by Rachel Simms. A few innings later, Georgetown scored a run in the fifth and another one in the sixth to end the game by mercy rule.

Last Saturday, the Tigers played at University of Virginia College at Wise in what started a 10-game streak of games inside the MSC. They took care of business in a two-game series 3-2 and 9-3. GC hopes to keep their streak alive against Lindsey Wilson College on April 9.
