The anatomy of a laugh

If you’ve ever found yourself standing on a makeshift stage in the early hours of the night with nothing but a microphone and a bottle of water, facing a dwindling crowd of students who are halfway through dinner and wondering why this guy is in the middle of J Street going, “So, who here likes […]

Creating a universe

Rehearsal started at 7 p.m., and they were in the middle of a scene when I arrived. “Oh, welcome,” said several voices after I had taken a seat. I said that I was just there to observe. “You’re lucky,” said Jason Ioannides, one of the two actors standing in the middle of the room, rehearsing […]

Crew prepares for GW Invite

Rowers from across the nation will meet on the banks of the Potomac River Saturday for the 17th annual GW Invitational Crew Classic. Teams from the University of Tennessee, Columbia University, the U.S. Naval Academy, St. Joseph’s and Georgetown are set to compete with GW in the event, which coincides with the closing of the […]

Baseball takes two from UVM

The GW baseball team took two games from the University of Vermont in a Sunday doubleheader at Barcroft Park in Arlington, Va. Saturday’s scheduled game against Vermont was canceled because of rain. GW (5-7) got strong pitching performances, especially from junior Dan Sullivan, who pitched all seven innings of the 4-2 victory in game two. […]

Baseball loads up on young talent for run at A-10 Title

Following a season in which the GW baseball team reached its fourth consecutive Atlantic 10 Tournament but failed to defend its 2002 title, the Colonials head into this season with plans to take that championship back. And they may just have the talent to do it. Position players Chris Barry, Travis Crowder and Tony Dokoupil […]

Florida Atlantic sweeps GW

The Colonials were swept by No. 16 Florida Atlantic University in a three-game series in Boca Raton, Fla., last weekend.

Shootout to be held Tuesday

Last spring, two GW students stood on the University of Dayton Arena floor during the first game of the Atlantic 10 Tournament semifinals, under as much pressure as any of the basketball teams and with even more on the line. Those two students, then-seniors Andy Wilson and Kiara Burrell, were the GW finalists in the […]

Covering one hundred years of Colonial Athletics

The Hatchet sports section has been around almost as long as athletics at GW – since 1904, to be exact. And over the years, it has covered everything from the expansion of sports at GW, to the suspension of all sports at GW, to conference championships and even a recent scandal. But the section, which […]

Courts remain closed

Varsity tennis players will be without a true home this season as construction delays keep the Mount Vernon Tennis Facility closed. After problems at the facility forced the University to begin rebuilding the courts last year, winter weather has pushed the expected completion date back until the summer. As a result, the GW men’s and […]

Coming home to an empty house

The GW women’s basketball team is the defending Atlantic 10 champion with two All-American candidates in seniors Ugo Oha and Cathy Joens. And yet, if the past few years are any indication, this talented Colonials team will be playing in front of meager crowds throughout the season. Last year, despite going 15-1 in conference and […]
