Former Georgetown soccer player Claire Fuselier (MSB ‘13) had her fair share of experiences on the field for the Hoyas in her first two years on campus.

Fuselier, who described herself as more of a practice player, entered 12 games as a substitute and quit the team after her sophomore year.

Last October, then-senior running back Phillip Oladeji waltzed into the end zone in the fourth quarter, giving Georgetown its first Homecoming game victory since 2006.

America has its sporting priorities all mixed up. News of quarterback Carson Palmer’s trade to the Oakland Raiders dominated headlines and SportsCenter all day Tuesday.
