Local players play key roles for Georgetown

By LINDA Y0UNKIN State Journal Sports Writer Published:

The season's winding down for Georgetown College's baseball team, and the Tigers still have some goals within reach.

Helping the Tigers attain those goals are five players from Frankfort - senior Jonathan Cary and freshman Jeff Howard, graduates of Western Hills; sophomore Daniel Scott and freshman Adam Davis, Franklin County graduates; and freshman Benjamin Hall, who graduated from Frankfort High.

"They all fit their own roles," Georgetown baseball coach Jim Hinerman said. "All of them have found a way to contribute."

The Tigers were 22-15 overall and 8-8 in the Mid-South Conference entering a four-game homestand over the weekend against Lindsey Wilson. GC has a make-up junior varsity doubleheader at home today against St. Catharine, and the Tigers play in the conference tournament this weekend in Louisville.

"I thought this team could win 30," Hinerman said. "I think we have a chance. We've pushed to be a factor in the conference. We're not going to win it, but we could be second and that's a good accomplishment for this group. The top three teams from the conference (tournament) go to the region.

"If we finish hard and get better as we go, we have a chance in that tournament," he added, "and that's what we're trying to do."
