After four straight seasons without advancing to postseason play, women’s soccer head coach Tanya Vogel was at a loss.

Lacrosse fails to clinch A-10

The GW women’s lacrosse team entered Friday’s home match with the chance to kill two birds with one stone: A win over Richmond would have not only clinched a trip to the Atlantic 10 tournament for the Colonials, but would have kept out the Spiders, a perennial conference power.

Women’s soccer to miss playoffs

When senior forward Meg Pyle came out of the locker room in the GW women’s soccer game Friday, she was ready to find the back of the net and give her team a win. The first half of the match had been evenly played and the Colonials had few chances to score, but Pyle wanted […]

Senior Day gets physical

Women’s soccer coach Tanya Vogel always wants her team to win. But Sunday’s match against Charlotte meant something more: It came on Senior Day, which would be the last time her seven seniors played at home.

Women’s soccer tops Duquesne

Women’s soccer team co-captain Stephanie Covello has known her team was capable of this all season. She had seen the Colonials’ progress. With every game, they were playing better and better.
