Basketball Preview: `The sky’s the limit’ for 1999-2000 GW women

The GW women’s basketball team was one win away from their ninth consecutive 20-win season last year.

Remove Meisner — staff editorial

Student Association President Phil Meisner’s recent actions are wholly reprehensible and constitute grounds for his removal from office. At the risk of even slightly legitimizing Meisner’s newest ploy – his attempt to dissolve the SA and create a new student government – the president’s actions must be thoroughly condemned.

In their place have arrived the players that will lead the buff and blue into the next century, men like Bernard Barrow, […]

The Colonial women faced many difficulties from the start of the season as their two top scorers, Jane Lea and Jane Anderson, graduated last year. This left the Colonial women struggling to survive against some of […]
