Softball gets home sweep

GW softball fans came out to the Mount Vernon Campus with their lawn chairs in tow Sunday afternoon to enjoy the team’s doubleheader sweep of Rhode Island as well as free hamburgers and hotdogs outside the Mount Vernon Pub. GW (16-12, 3-3 Atlantic 10) brought their record to .500 in conference play, bouncing back from […]

Ice hockey club is undefeated and unrecognized

Unbeknownst to much of Foggy Bottom, there is an impressive GW team that is ranked first in its league, fourth in its region, and is still undefeated more than halfway through a long season. Tucked away at the Fort DuPont Ice Arena in Southeast Washington – a long Metro train ride and a bus transfer […]

WEB EXTRA: Teams get new assistant coaches

A new season brings new coaches to Foggy Bottom. Both the men and women’s squads will benefit from the addition of a new assistant to their coaching staffs. This season the Colonials welcome Phil Rowe, formerly the head coach at several New Hampshire colleges, to the men’s staff; and Mike Bozeman, an acclaimed high school […]

WEB EXTRA: Volleyball makes it two in a row

The Colonials may have played the spoiler this weekend in beating two Atlantic 10 teams competing for a bid to the conference tournament. GW (12-15, 5-8 A-10) broke a three-game losing streak by sweeping Charlotte on the road followed by a win against Fordham at the Smith Center. Fordham’s loss helps Charlotte in their race […]

Volleyball falls in Philly

The volleyball team did not receive much affection from the City of Brotherly Love. Both La Salle and Temple swept the Colonials on their weekend road trip to Philadelphia. The pair of losses, combined with a defeat at the hands of Atlantic 10 newcomer Charlotte, followed a three-game winning streak for the Colonials (10-15, 3-8 […]

Volleyball tops crosstown foe

The volleyball team earned city bragging rights Tuesday by rallying to topple Georgetown at the Hoyas’ McDonough Gymnasium. It was the team’s third straight win. GW dropped the first game 28-30 despite their late offensive surge before taking the next three games 31-29, 30-23 and 30-22 over two hours and two minutes. “It doesn’t matter […]

Volleyball gets spiked in A-10

The GW volleyball team seems to thrive under pressure but still has trouble finishing when it counts. The Colonials made strong comeback attempts this past weekend in their efforts against Atlantic 10 rival Duquesne and newcomer Saint Louis but lost both matches 3-1. The Colonials salvaged one win in each match, pushing both to an […]

Volleyball trounces the Howard Bison

Although Howard University’s nickname is the Bisons, the GW volleyball team was the one stampeding through the Burr Gymnasium Tuesday night. The Colonials won across town on the Lady Bison’s turf with the scores 30-18, 30-18, 30-16 in an hour and 18 minutes. “We just played better as a team,” coach Jojit Coronel said. Every […]

Volleyball completes A-10

An enthusiastic crowd for Parent/Alumni Weekend could only propel the GW volleyball team to one victory at the Smith Center this past weekend. The Colonials rolled over the La Salle Explorers 3-0 Friday night, but were swept 3-0 on Saturday by archrival Temple, their second Atlantic 10 Conference adversary from Philadelphia that weekend. Temple 3, […]

Volleyball tops GMU

Fairfax, Va., is a bit closer to home than Ohio. Maybe that’s why the GW volleyball team was able to get back on a winning track. The squad won its second straight match 3-1 Tuesday night against George Mason. The Colonials (4-7) outscored the Patriots (3-7) 30-20, 27-30, 30-21, 30-23 in a two-hour match that […]
