VSN Ranks Tigers Preseason No. 6

June 30, 2011

Victory Sports Network released preseason poll with Georgetown College cracking the Top 10. The defending Mid-South Conference East Divisional champions return most of its high octane offense, helping to earn the No. 6 spot in the first VSN poll of the 2011 season.

“I saw our ranking, but it hadn’t really hit me to think much of it,” said GC coach Bill Cronin. “Georgetown has always been one of the top teams in the country and hopefully it will continue to be that way.

“I have a great deal of respect for Jason Dannelly and Victory Sports Network. He does a lot of hard work to research teams and look into details for rankings, however, this is preseason. We don’t have our players back from summer yet, so let’s wait to see how everyone reports for summer camp.”
