Colonials fall in extra frames

The GW men’s soccer team played its first two conference home games this weekend, both of which went into double overtime.

The matches were mirror images of each other, as no team scored until the second half in both […]

Walking on to success

Not every collegiate athlete has an easy road to success. Some battle injuries, poor play and a lack of playing time, while others don’t even get a chance. The current co-captains of the GW men’s soccer team, Trent Wilee and Matt Miller, nearly missed their chance to play. Despite getting cut by head coach George […]

Retrievers hound men’s soccer

The GW men’s soccer team lost its third game in a row, a 3-0 shutout to the University of Maryland-Baltimore County on Wednesday.

But senior co-captain Matt Miller said there is no doubt the rookies will quickly find their places on the field. “I am confident that these freshmen can step up and fill in for anyone who graduated,” […]

The man behind the muscles

Colonial athletes agree – there is no such thing as an easy day in one of Mark Bearden’s workout sessions. But there is no such thing as a bad day, either. When the athletic department hired Bearden to be GW’s strength and conditioning coach last year, athletes learned right away that training would never be […]

Men’s soccer earns A-10 bid

The GW men’s soccer team clinched the sixth and final seed in the Atlantic 10 Tournament Saturday after battling through two overtimes to tie the Richmond Spiders, 1-1.
