Because there is only so much room in each issue’s sports page – and because we can’t travel to cover most road games – not everything can make it into print. Here are some roundups of GW teams that were in action this weekend but whose games didn’t make it into Monday’s paper.
The GW women’s squash team won the Walker Cup as part of the C Division at this weekend’s Howe Cup in New Haven, Conn.
The Colonials beat St. Lawrence 7-2 Friday, Wesleyan 8-1 Saturday, and Vassar College 5-4 Sunday to take the eight-team tournament.
GW’s softball team dropped four games in two days at this weekend’s UVa Invitational in Newport News, Va. to begin its season 0-4.
The Colonials began by dropping a 9-1 decision to the host Cavaliers Friday, then lost 8-0 against Notre Dame later that day. They met the same two teams in reverse order the next day, losing 12-0 to the Fighting Irish and 6-0 to Virginia.
Sophomore Lauren Wilson hit a solo homerun to drive in GW’s only run of the season in Friday’s loss to Virginia. Wilson also had the Colonials’ lone hit in Saturday’s loss to Notre Dame and one of the team’s four hits in its final game of the event.
GW will play at UMBC Tuesday at 1 p.m.
The GW men’s tennis team took a three-day tour of New York this weekend, but didn’t come home with any wins, losing matches at Cornell, Binghamton and Columbia in consecutive days.
The Colonials began their weekend Friday in Ithaca, losing 7-0 to Cornell while losing every match in straight sets. Playing in the No. 6 singles match, junior Arya Vayghan came closest to winning a set, losing his second set on a tiebreak point.
GW met Binghamton the next day and also lost 7-0, though junior Chris Kushma and sophomore Richard Blumenfeld each won sets in their matches.
The team’s final loss came by a 6-1 mark against No. 58 Columbia in New York, N.Y. and proved to be the most productive of its three defeats. Junior Yan Levinski won his No. 1 singles match 6-3, 3-6 (11-9) and GW won one of the three doubles matches when junior Erik Hannah and sophomore Ugur Atalay won the No. 1 doubles match 8-3.
GW will host Radford Saturday at Montclair Country Club in Woodbridge, Va.
GW’s women’s tennis team won two 4-3 decisions this weekend, beating the University of Pennsylvania Friday in Philadelphia and upsetting Atlantic 10 favorite Richmond in Woodbridge, Va. Saturday.
Sophomore Zoe Krohn earned the Colonials’ most notable point Friday, winning a three-hour battle in the No. 5 singles match 6-7 (11), 7-5, 7-6 (0). GW and Penn split the event’s six singles points, with Krohn, sophomore Meg Tyner and freshman Mimi Hamling each winning their matches. Krohn and Hamling won their No. 1 doubles match and sophomore Jacqueline Corba and freshman Dorota Lysienia took the No. 2 match.
Corba, Tyner and Hamling won their singles matches against Richmond and GW again prevailed in the doubles competition to decide the match. Krohn and Hamling won their match and junior Jennifer Hirsch and freshman Sasha Gluck won theirs as well.
The Colonials will meet Columbia Friday in College Park, Md. and then host Saint Joseph’s Saturday in their first event of the year at the Mount Vernon Tennis Courts. Saturday’s event is set to start at 1 p.m.
Despite posting a season-high team score for the second time in three meets, GW’s women’s gymnastics team lost at Towson by a score of 193.450 to 192.050.
Junior Leslie Delima scored a team-best 38.775 in the all-around competition and led the team on the floor exercise with a 9.875 score. Freshman Kayla Carto set a new personal best with an all-around score of 38.500. Senior Megan Quinn was next among Colonials with an all-around score of 38.300 and led GW on the balance beam with a 9.750 score.
GW will travel to a four-team meet at Pittsburgh Friday and then host William & Mary and New Hampshire in Capital Area Girl Scout Day Sunday at 1 p.m.
