With the Big East Tennis Championship Tournament just a week away, expectations are high for both Georgetown’s men’s (10-9, 3-0 Big East) and women’s (13-4, 3-2 Big East) tennis, each of which are poised for strong finishes to the 2013 campaign.
One month has passed since the opening of the 2013 Georgetown men’s lacrosse season and the Hoyas have put together a meager record, despite dynamic play in most of their matches. In their first season under Head Coach Kevin Warne, Georgetown (2-3, 0-0 Big East) has played five exhilarating contests. The Hoyas have come out on top in two of the five—prevailing 9-8 in overtime against Navy (3-3) and beating Dartmouth (2-2) 10-9—and fell in the other three against Lafayette (2-5), Harvard (2-2), and Mount St. Mary’s (4-4).
The Georgetown baseball team (0-2) kicked off a highly anticipated campaign this past weekend in Spartanburg, S.C. The Hoyas started the weekend against Wofford University (3-1), falling 6-5 in 10 innings. Wofford opened up the scoring in the third inning, scoring 2 runs on 2 hits, benefiting from a costly error by Georgetown junior first baseman Steve Anderson. Georgetown answered with their first run of the season in the fifth inning via a home run by sophomore third baseman Ryan Busch, but the Terriers responded with two of their own in the bottom half of the inning.
As temperatures climb, the Hoya student body can finally welcome the arrival of Georgetown’s spring sports season. For the Georgetown Hoyas softball team (1-4), this weekend marked the first of what is sure to be many opportunities to showcase their talents. The Hoyas traveled to Miami for a slate of five games in the Florida International University Tournament.
The Georgetown Hoyas men’s basketball team (13-4, 3-3 Big East) had an up and down weekend for the ages, suffering an embarrassing loss to the University of South Florida (10-7, 1-4 Big East), a notorious Big East bottom feeder, before rebounding just two days later with a dominant win over the University of Notre Dame (15-4, 3-3 Big East).
Coming off of a close victory over La Salle University (1-7) last week, the Hoya women’s basketball team (6-2) looked to continue their winning ways, squaring off in two road games versus cross-town rival George Washington University (4-3) and Monmouth University (2-5).
