There were more games over the weekend than we had space for in Monday’s issue, so here’s a quick roundup of the GW sports action that didn’t make it into the print edition of the paper.
The women’s lacrosse team lost 17-6 on Friday on the road in Richmond, the seventh straight defeat for the Colonials. The game got out of hand quickly for GW, which gave up six straight goals to open the game was outscored 9-3 in the first half. Offensively, the Colonials were led by sophomore Hilary Quinn who matched her career and season-high with three goals. Senior Taylor Donohue, freshman Nicole Lacey and sophomore Sarah Phillips each scored one goal in the loss.
GW will attempt to notch its first win in almost a month when it returns to action this Friday at home against Saint Joseph’s at 4 p.m.
The GW softball team extended its losing streak to nine over the weekend, losing both games in a double header against Saint Louis by scores of 3-0 and 5-0 on Saturday and falling 8-0 to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville on Sunday. The Colonials failed to score a run in 19 innings on the weekend, and were held to just 10 hits in the three games.
GW will try to snap its losing skid this Wednesday with a double header against Maryland in College Park, Md. First pitch for game one is set for 5 p.m.
The GW golf team shot a school-record combined score of 280 on Sunday, helping the Colonials to place third in the Adidas Hoosier Invitational in Bloomington, Ind. GW was led by sophomore Brandan Rukin’s career low four-under-par 67.
The Colonials were in ninth place after two rounds of play Saturday, but shot 18 strokes lower on Sunday to move into third. Rukin’s three-round score of 216 was good enough for seventh place in the event, and fellow Colonial Martin Liu’s 219 put him in 16th overall.
GW will be back on the links on April 17 for the first round of the Caves Valley Spring Intercollegiate, hosted by Yale and held in Owings Mills, Md.
