Recently I have been persecuted in the media. To quell my naysayers, I have chosen to broach a serious topic. This is a first for me, and I apologize to my regular readers who look forward to my frivolity for inspiration. But today I decided to impart true wisdom and since I don’t have any […]

WNBA in D.C.

The WNBA is coming to Washington. The D.C. area will be one of two expansion cities for the women’s league and hopefully will benefit from the same huge amount of public support and interest that has greeted other cities’ franchises. Similarly, the new team will offer inspiration to area youth. Washington-area fans helped bring the […]

The forgotten Armenian genocide

I was pleased to read a letter to the editor in The GW Hatchet’s Nov. 6 issue that identified Turkey as a major violator of human rights (“China not alone, p.4). Although the letter was thorough in outlining Turkey’s major offenses, I would like to elaborate more on the forgotten 1914-18 genocide of more than […]

College basketball teams rarely win by 53 points, or get two walk-ons in the scoring column, yet the GW men’s basketball team did both in its 97-44 exhibition rout of the Around the World Basketball team Monday. It was a night of rare accomplishments for the Colonials that left fans smiling in the Smith Center. […]

Wrapping up its final road trip of the season, the GW women’s volleyball team garnered two victories to carry it into its final four-game home stand.

GW splashes to sixth place in fall finale

Playing on one of the brightest new golf courses on the East Coast, GW only could muster a faint glimmer as it finished in sixth place at the 12-team Delaware Fall Invitational in Owings Mills, Md. Colonials head coach Scott Allen said last week his team had a chance to win this last tournament of […]

GW looks to next season after disappointing ’97

Despite the fact that the GW men’s soccer team did not reach all of its goals this season, finishing 6-11-1 overall and 4-6-1 in the Atlantic 10, team members succeeded individually. “They put in the effort,” acting head coach John McNamara said. “They were never a team that didn’t play 90 minutes.” GW will lose […]
