    Campbellsville University could not defend its No.-1 seed in Mid-South Conference Softball Tournament, losing twice to Georgetown on Saturday 7-4 and 5-3, and relinquished the MSC's automatic seed in the national tournament.

    The Lady Tigers will have to wait and see if their regular-season Mid-South-best record of 18-1-1 and 40-7-1 overall mark will catch the seeding panel's eye. Only seven at-large bids are available.
