Sophomore wins race at Penn Relays

Redshirt sophomore Megan Hogan’s whirlwind last year and a half reached a new high last Thursday, when the New York native won the 10,000 meter College Women’s Championship at the Penn Relays with a time of 33:55.23. She outpaced her closest competitor by 44 seconds. Hogan, who started running competitively after transferring to GW last […]

Andrew Alberg: It’s been a pun-derful ride

By nature, I’m not the sentimental type. Unlike many reporters, I don’t hang on to mementos of my experiences very long and tend not to get too caught up in the significance of moments. I have a habit of depositing press passes into the nearest trash bin I find and only save hard copies of […]

Baseball drops series to La Salle

After beating La Salle 11-2 Friday afternoon at Barcroft Field in Arlington, GW’s baseball team looked to be on their way to a series win against one of the Atlantic 10’s worst teams. But not even a second-consecutive complete game from ace Pat Lehman could help the Colonials salvage the series Sunday, as GW did […]

Andrew Alberg: Pops does GW proud

As far as I know, Pops Mensah-Bonsu only knows one way to greet people: with an outstretched hand and oversized smile. And not one of those forced smiles that hide an underlying annoyance or one of those flimsy handshakes either. Mensah-Bonsu genuinely loves interacting with people, and it shows. Either that or he puts Phillip […]

Head men’s basketball coach Karl Hobbs will return next year, GW’s director of athletics told The Hatchet on Tuesday. “Karl Hobbs will be the coach next year.

Men’s basketball ends season with loss to Temple

When the sun rose Saturday morning, the men’s basketball team still had a chance at qualifying for this week’s Atlantic 10 tournament, salvaging their season and preventing embarrassment for a second straight year. But by the time the referee tossed the ball in the air to start the Colonials’ season finale Temple, that hope was […]

Men’s basketball team stumbles against UMass

AMHERST, Mass. – For 27 minutes and 29 seconds of Wednesday night’s men’s basketball team’s 77-62 loss against the University of Massachusetts Wednesday night, there was no distinguishable difference between the Colonials (10-17, 4-11 Atlantic 10) and their opponents. The two teams had given and taken the lead from each other multiple times throughout the […]

Andrew Alberg: ‘Hobbs-speak’ sets bar too low

Overachieve (verb): to achieve success over and above the standard or expected level. During Karl Hobbs’ nine years as head men’s basketball coach, that word has become synonymous with what has been dubbed “Hobbs-speak,” a set of words and phrases the coach resorts to during every interview. During the team’s 2005-2006, Hobbs said the team […]

Colonials capture first road win

Saturday, February 28 RICHMOND, Va. – For a team supposedly dead in the water midway through the season, the GW men’s basketball has been showing signs of life recently. With no room for error if they want to make a run at the Atlantic 10 tournament, the Colonials beat Richmond 66-57 at the Robins Center […]
