We wanted to get these into today’s paper, but there just wasn’t space with our extended coverage of the women’s basketball team as well as a story on the Nats’ new baseball park and the softball team’s double-header against Georgetown. So here’s what’s happening with some of the other sports:
Baseball: The baseball team throttled the University of Virginia Wednesday by a score of 17-5. After beginning Atlantic 10 play last weekend, the Colonials now have a 12-9 record. Tuesday, GW beat Towson 11-5, earning head coach Steve Mrowka his 100th win at GW.
Lacrosse: After starting the season with five straight losses, the lacrosse team has won two of its last three games, and now sits at 2-6. The Colonials fell 13-11 at the University of California, March 20.
Golf: The golf squad had its best finish of the year last weekend, placing second out of 20 teams at the GW Invitational in Bethany Beach, Del. The Colonials’ “B” team placed sixth at the event. Sophomore Lewis Sturdy shot GW’s lowest score with a 181 for 45 holes.
Men’s tennis: The Colonials beat Duquesne 5-2 last weekend for their 11th victory of the year. Senior Mustafa Gencsoy is the current A-10 player of the week, while Yan Levinski currently holds rookie of the week titles.
