The relationships forged between these teammates on the Hilltop ring give a whole new meaning to the term “tough love.”
Georgetown is all about world-class programs. From finance to athletics, we take great pride in being ranked alongside the best. Among the celebrated top tier programs here on the Hilltop resides yet another notable group of competitors—the Washington Judo Club, which includes members from the University and surrounding community.

Sept. 11 did not come to my mind on Monday, at least not initially. Instead, my mind wandered to 10 days after that fateful day in 2001, to September 21. That day, Mike Piazza and the Mets resurrected New York City’s vibrancy from the horrors of the attack on the World Trade Center. For about three hours, people around the city and the nation were afforded an escape from it all. Piazza’s game-winning homerun that day simply topped an incredibly unifying day.
Despite gaining momentum after a dramatic 14-13 overtime win against St. John’s (7-4, 2-3 Big East) on April 6, the Georgetown men’s lacrosse team (5-7, 2-2 Big East) couldn’t hang on to a 4-goal lead this past Monday against No. 4 Notre Dame.
