Carving her place on the court

Senior forward Megan Nipe’s role on the women’s basketball team isn’t clearly defined, and she has no problem with that.

Yet no […]

Women’s soccer scores first A-10 victory

The Colonials entered their final game of the season still searching for their first conference victory. GW (5-12-1, 1-8 A-10) had struggled to score goals all season – before this weekend’s play, the Colonials had been shut out in five of their seven Atlantic 10 conference games.

Charismatic captain leads men’s tennis team

Senior Richard Blumenfeld calls himself the glue of the men’s tennis team. He’s a captain, two-time Atlantic 10 champion and owns an undefeated record at the No. 6 singles slot on the spring season, going 7-0. But at the end of the day, Blumenfeld thinks his top contribution is being the Colonial who holds the […]
