With all the recent talk in The Hatchet about school spirit – or the lack thereof, here at G-dub – I’ve noticed a common theme: “If we had a winning team, then I’d have school spirit.” To these students I ask, would you support a basketball team that has won 20-plus games 11 times in […]

Where is GW’s school spirit?

Duke has the “Cameron Crazies,” College Park has “Garyland” and the University of Kansas has “Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk.” What does GW have?

BBall Preview: McKeown leads women with patience

They don’t come here for the intimate campus. They don’t come here for the ivy-covered buildings. And they certainly don’t come here to see the football team play on Saturdays. So what does attract some of the country’s top female high school basketball players to GW? Thirteen-year veteran head coach Joe McKeown, for one. “It […]

Web Extra: Men’s Water Polo Comes Up Short

The men’s water polo team put forth its best defensive effort of the season, but unbalanced scoring cost the team another game in the Colonials 9-8 loss to conference-rival Johns Hopkins University Wednesday night at the Smith Center, head coach Scott Reed said. Junior Pat Dodge dominated the Colonials’ offensive, scoring five goals in the […]

From the heartland: On the eighth day God created October

The Twins beat the A’s, the Yanks are sittin’ at home and I don’t even care that Barry Bonds is still playing, because it’s October and the Fall Classic is right around the corner. That’s right, baseball fans. The playoffs are in full swing and I’m more excited than a freshman at his first keg […]
