I was proud of the team and how they responded in training over the last two weeks after dropping two consecutive league games. The entire squad pushed each other on a daily basis, stayed positive and came together to find two important results against two of the best teams in the BIG EAST.
The Georgetown Women’s Golf Team closed out the fall season by winning their first tournament in over five years over the weekend at Rehoboth Beach Country Club in Rehoboth, Delaware. The Hoyas were led by junior co-captain Mackenzie Boydston (Keller, TX) who finished 4th in the event. Continue reading
With the top rated Wolverines, Ducks and Buffaloes occupying the rolling grasslands of the Indiana State course for the women’s Pre-Nats meet, Coach Mike Smith decided to organize a hunting trip. His women’s team organized their gear, loaded their weapons, tracked their prey and brought home a wide array of game for a fine feast indeed! Continue reading
We have just returned from Omaha, NE after a very hard fought 1-0 win over Creighton. Morrison Stadium is one of the crown jewel facilities in college soccer, and the energy from the 3,000 in attendance was driving Creighton forward all night long. Continue reading
We were happy with how the Champ Eight executed Sunday’s race. They rowed long and well and approached it all with the right attitude. We were slow off the line as we started, but put together some very fast splits through the third mile and through the finish, despite rowing lower than most crews through the body of the race and the sprint.

After our scrimmages at the Landon School, we feel like we are headed into the next segment of the season in a good state of mind, both mentally and physically. It is always great to see our guys in game-like situations after having 19 practices with them. Overall, the staff was pleased with how we performed throughout the day. As always there is room for improvement and those games exposed some really good teaching points too. Continue reading
Friday’s match is also our Alumni Game. We look forward to honoring the former Hoya Field Hockey players who have contributed to our program over the years. I look forward to seeing many of you at the match and if I haven’t had the opportunity to meet you in person, I very much look forward to doing so after the game.
It’s been a hard week to get our head around, starting with trying to play meteorologist. The game Wednesday against Providence was a Twilight Zone affair before it even began, as we had to move our kickoff up to 10 a.m. in response to a massive storm that was forecast to blow through the DC area. The early kickoff presented an empty stadium to greet one of the league’s toughest opponents, and neutralizing our home field advantage was not what we were hoping for. Continue reading
As a sophomore, Aliyah Graves-Brown brings experience to a team under new head coach Shannon Soares. IN 2013, Graves-Brown appeared in all 18 games for the Hoyas and started seven. She finished her freshman year with three assists (three points) and nine shots. In 2014, Graves-Brown has started nine of 10 games and has already eclipsed her 2013 statistics with 3 goals and 3 assists for 9 points. Continue reading
