Inside the huddle

After four home games last week, GW basketball fans know what it’s like to cheer on the Colonials in the stands at the Smith Center. But what is it like for the athletes and coaches on the court and on the bench? Earlier this week, Professor Charles Toftoy of GW’s School of Business and Public […]

D.C. Baseball: D.C. gets another chance

“Wait ’til next year.” The expression was started by Brooklyn Dodgers fans around the 1940s and 50s when the Brooks were good but played perennial second fiddle to the New York Yankees. The Dodgers lost the World Series in ’41, ’47, ’49, ’52 and ’53, making those four words the mantra for teams that came […]

D.C. Baseball: From Potomacs to Senators

On Sept. 30, 1971, the Washington Senators and New York Yankees played the last professional baseball game in the District of Columbia. Ahead of the Yankees 7-5 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, the stage seemed to be set for a sweet swan song for the local nine. But the “Nats” fans […]

Joens breaks out as Colonials split

Any doubts that may have surfaced when GW’s leading scorer Cathy Joens sat out of the women’s first exhibition game and turned in an uncharacteristic 11-point performance against Howard were quelled as the senior guard racked up 50 points in two games last week. Joens scored a career-high 28 points in her team’s win over […]

McKeown sets record in blowout win

One would think GW women’s basketball head coach Joe McKeown would get all the attention on a night when he became the winningest women’s coach in Atlantic 10 history. But not on a night when his star player set career highs in rebounds and points and his team recorded its largest margin of victory since […]

Wide weekend of sports: Volleyball headed back to A-10 tournament

Only four players were on the GW volleyball team when the squad made its last Atlantic 10 Tournament appearance in 2000 and only one current member was a starter. But while this weekend’s tournament appearance might seem like a new experience, head coach Jojit Coronel said it will be no different than the rest of […]

The GW volleyball team got a confidence-booster going into the final weekend of the regular season Monday night with a non-conference win on the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s Senior Night. The 3-0 win marked the second consecutive Senior Night spoiler for the Colonials, who also swept LaSalle Saturday. The victory gave the Colonials their […]
