MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College Men's Basketball team is looking for the next standout Bobcat student-athlete. On March 26, coach Mark Gainous and his staff will hold an open tryout for any interested high school seniors.

Tryouts are scheduled to start at 1 p.m. in the Centennial Center on Georgia College's main campus. Prospective athletes are encouraged to arrive at 12:30 p.m. to fill out paperwork and get ready for the tryout.

Before arriving, seniors should have proof of a physical and a completed waiver form. The form can be found at http://www.gcbobcats.com/Compliance/coachesadministrators.

All interested can direct any questions to the Bobcats' assistant coach Ryan Aquino at ryan.aquino@gcsu.edu or by phone at 478-445-4289.

The GC Men's Basketball team had a successful 2016-17 season. The Bobcats won 15 of their 28 games and finished just out of playoff contention in the Peach Belt Conference's (PBC) West Division. With 13 new Bobcats and only four returners, the Bobcats came together quickly as a team and helped elevate Georgia College to a winning season for the second consecutive year. The Blue and Green lose just two seniors to graduation – guard Mark McCorkle (Cumming) and forward Kelvin Nwanze (Lagos, Nigeria).

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
