Our 25th-ranked Tiger football team commands center stage Saturday with a huge Mid-South Conference rivalry game against No. 6 Cumberlands at 1:30 p.m. in Toyota Stadium, but a men’s basketball tussle at 10 a.m. in Alumni Gym between the 2009-10 Tigers and some legendary alums of the hardwood should attract an audience as well.

Men’s Basketball

Yes, if you want a hint of what Men’s Basketball coach Happy Osborne has in store for the NAIA this season, take in some of the competition his varsity will get from the likes of:

  • Jason Woodard ’94
  • Jermaine Brown ’96
  • Barry Bowman ’99
  • George Baker ’04
  • Enelio Moreno ’04
  • Blake Downing ’05
  • Casey Alsop ’05
  • Jordan Owens ’05
  • Donnovan Brown ’08

Unfortunately, weather has adversely affected plans for three other Alumni Athletic Reunions.

Baseball

Baseball coach Erik Hagen plans to reschedule the alumni baseball game and cook-out for spring (stay tuned). Stay in shape, guys! Among the commitments were:

  • Nich Haubeil ’00
  • Nolan Bean ’02
  • Ryan Murphy ’04
  • Nate Courtney ’04
  • Scott Griewe ’04
  • Jon Davidson ’04

Soccer & Softball

Soccer and Softball games, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday respectively, have been reduced to “gatherings.” The bodies are probably willing, but the fields are unplayable. But, the coaches urge their alumni followings to show up.

Soccer

Saturday at 11:30 a.m. Soccer coaches Derrick Willis (men’s) and Leah Crews Castleman ’05 (women’s) still plan to feed their alums and players.

From ’74 – the first year GC fielded a soccer team –  we have Larry Schumacher, Skip Miller, Tom McAllister, Joe Bailey, Jim Acra, Scott Davis, Doug Brown. (Which begs the question: Where are you ’75 and ’76 grads?) Other commitments are:

  • Barry Sullivan ’91
  • Darren Courts ’91
  • Fonyam Atanga ’04
  • Emily Farrell Jasinski ’04
  • Paul Jasinski ’04
  • Kristen Lengle ’05
  • Josh Rodgers ’06
  • Amy Chamberlain ’08
  • Sandy Doss ’08
  • Chelsea Rueff ’09
  • Ashley Stigall ’09
  • Savanna Evans ’09

Soccer-alums may just show up, but to get a special tee-shirt you better contact Leah_Castleman@georgetowncollege.edu ASAP.

Softball

Sunday at 2 p.m., current softball players and those of yesteryear will still gather. But, now – thanks to the weather – Softball coach Thomas Thornton won’t need to schedule a double-header to play all the alumni who signed up. They include:

  • Stephanie Borders Hillerich ’00
  • Lisa Eckhoff McKinney ’01
  • Jennifer Lucas ’01
  • Jamie Conliffe ’02
  • Joanna Lane ’02
  • Toni Combs Skees ’02
