Fall preview – Golf tees off season

Last season the GW golf team had lofty expectations placed on them after finishing a strong 1998-99 season ranked third in the Atlantic 10. To the chagrin of many, including seventh-year head coach Scott Allen, the Colonials failed to meet those high expectations. GW underachieved last season, finishing fifth in the Atlantic 10 and 17th […]

Staff editorial – Self-rule revisited

The Universty has, once again, approved self-governance for the Interfraternity Council. The IFC will attempt to enforce policy in minor cases handed down at the discretion of Student Judicial Services. The lack of unity among IFC fraternities is evidence that this experiment granting fraternities the power to regulate their own affairs could again fail and […]

Fall preview – Women’s soccer: We’re going to strike

The GW women’s soccer team has begun its quest for the Atlantic 10 Championship. The Colonials are not as far along as they would like to be, starting the season 1-5, but there is a team sentiment that something special is growing. We’re going to strike, tri-captain Jessica Sultzer said. I think we’re going to […]

Fall preview – Crew out to break personal, team records

In rowing the term PR stands for personal record. And the men’s and women’s crew teams are looking to set new ones for the 2000-01 season in order to improve on last year’s outstanding finish. Last spring the Colonial women placed second at A-10’s and 14th at Eastern Sprints. A silver medal at the National […]

Fall preview – Cross Country sets realistic goals

The game plan for the GW men’s and women’s cross country teams is simple: slow down. If the teams go too fast too early, they’ll burn the resources needed to withstand an unusually long season. This is especially important to the men’s team, which features six freshmen – Darrell Andruski, David Azari, Nick Capone, Mandeep […]

Fall preview – Holloway is key to soccer success

The GW men’s soccer team’s keys to success are health and chemistry, according to junior forward Jason Holloway. But, there is another key this season to the Colonials’ success – Holloway’s scoring. Holloway, the team’s high scorer last season with six goals and an assist for 13 points, holds an upbeat and positive attitude leading […]

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 […]
