For women’s soccer, there’s not another conference quite like the Big East. That was clear last weekend, when Georgetown knocked off defending national champion Notre Dame in a game categorized by typically unpredictable Big East play.
Heading into this past weekend’s Bearcat Invitational Tournament, Georgetown men’s golf coach Tommy Hunter was cautiously optimistic about his team’s prospects, but the Hoyas managed a fifth place finish despite a talented field of 15 teams. An overall score of 289 in their final round brought the team within 13 strokes of tournament champion Austin Peay.
The No. 13 Georgetown men’s soccer team (7-1-3, 2-0-0 Big East) put their nine-game unbeaten streak to the test Tuesday night under the bright lights of the Multi-Sport Field, coming up victorious 2-1 against crosstown rival American University (4-6-1) in only their second time ever playing on the synthetic surface.
The Georgetown men’s soccer team couldn’t hit net in Tuesday’s marquee matchup against Penn State. Luckily for the Hoyas, the Nittany Lions were stifled as well, leading to a 0-0 draw. It marked the Hoyas’ first scoreless tie of the season as they get set to ride their good form into Big East play next week.
After a rough overtime loss in their Big East opener against Seton Hall, the Georgetown women’s soccer team rediscovered their form with a huge win over Rutgers. Sunday’s 4-1 win, reaffirmed the team’s presence as a top Big East contender, improving their overall record to 7-3.
With its third straight win, the Georgetown women’s soccer team continued its revival from a brief early season swoon. After Friday’s 2-0 triumph over James Madison and Sunday’s 1-0 win against St. Francis, the Hoyas stand at an impressive 6-2 and are in prime position to begin conference play.
One week after the Georgetown women’s soccer team was handily defeated 4-1 by Stanford, the men’s team entered Sunday’s game against the Cardinal with revenge in mind. After a stagnant regulation period, the Hoyas picked up the energy level and took advantage of Stanford’s lethargy when sophomore Steve Neumann scored in the 105th minute to give Georgetown the 1-0 victory in double overtime.
As I was searching for “friends” on my new Twitter account, I came across some of my old high school flames relaying the sultry details of their latest exploits. These tweets more or less consisted of dirty spin offs of a Tri Delta catch phrase or how “swoll” they are in preparation for some spring break debauchery.
When I first saw Columbus Day on the Registrar’s calendar as a freshman last year, I was amused to find that we had the day off. For many students in this country, Columbus Day is just a novelty, and many states and school districts have never used it as an excuse to cancel school. Students, however, really shouldn’t just dismiss Columbus Day out of hand.
