Fall preview – Twins bring veteran play to golf

Bryan and Tim Derdenger return to the GW men’s golf team for their third consecutive season this year. The twin brothers from Scottsdale, Ariz., have been playing golf competitively since they were seven years old, and have excelled at GW since they joined the team in 1998. Last year Bryan Derdenger led the Colonials with […]

Fall preview – Levey: setting examples for team

When Drew Bledsoe has a bad day, the New England Patriots don’t win. If Brett Favre has a rough season, the Packers aren’t going to the Super Bowl. The quarterback is the team leader, someone who sets the tone, controls the pace, and defines the team. And that’s exactly what volleyball interim coach Jojit Coronel […]

Tennis’ Stastny, First win doubles

It was an impressive opening weekend for the GW women’s tennis team. The Colonials’ fourth-seeded doubles team of Katarina Stastny and Lindy First won the No. 1 doubles tournament Sunday against the United States Military Academy at Army’s Eastern Collegiate Tennis Tournament in West Point, N.Y. Stastny and First defeated opponents from the University of […]

Fall preview – Water polo looks to veteran leadership

The young GW men’s varsity water polo team consists of just 13 members: six returning players, five freshmen and two walk-ons. But that does not daunt second year coach Scott Reed. Last year, GW finished with a 7-21 record, but 10 of those losses were by three goals or less. We had too much talent […]

Men’s soccer ties Monmouth

Matt Pilkington’s goal in the 89th minute allowed the GW men’s soccer team to leave South Riding Field Saturday with a 1-1 tie against visiting Monmouth University. The goal was the GW junior’s fourth of the season and third in as many games. It came when Pilkington took a pass from teammate Jeff Greenspan and […]

Fall preview – Vogel realizes coaching dream

Ponder these numbers: 3-15-1 overall record, a ninth-place conference finish, 16 goals scored and 44 goals scored against. Those are the statistics of the 1999 GW women’s soccer team under former head coach Michele Rodriguez-Smith. But, that was last year, before the arrival of Tanya Vogel as new head coach. Vogel graduated from GW in […]

GW approves IFC self-governance

GW approved the Interfraternity Council’s self-governance policy Friday, giving the group power to make judicial decisions regulating minor violations within the body’s 11 fraternities. I’m very excited we’ve had so much University support, so much internal interest, IFC President Jay Levin said. Working together is going to be good for both Greeks and non-Greeks. The […]

Less Than Jake lights up 9:30 Club

Our live show is just random insanity, says Roger, Less Than Jake’s bassist. Usually it’s just like everyone gets psyched up in their own way. For some people that’s dressing up like Richard Simmons. Or Spiderman. Or throwing fistfuls of rice at the crowd. Or breathing fire. To Less Than Jake a live show is […]

Fall preview – Volleyball goes for A-10 Championship

The time is now for the GW volleyball team. After falling just short of upsetting top-ranked Temple in the Atlantic 10 Tournament last November, the Colonials find themselves a much different and deeper team than they were one year ago. Both on and off the court, the volleyball team has become more unified and more […]

College Republicans visit Kolbe

GW’s College Republicans talked shop over dinner with Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) at his Capitol Hill home Thursday. A close friend of CR member Erik Yassenoff and a campus guest speaker last year, the congressman invited 25 students to his old home, which is just five blocks from the Capitol. Kolbe grilled hamburgers and provided […]
