Senior Day and SpiderCoach

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Well it's Monday Hoya fans, I'm sure everyone is happy to be back to work after a lovely fall weekend. For us here in Sports Info this means we work to get everything wrapped up from the previous weekend and to get started on what's ahead. So here is a little recap from my sports this weekend and a look at the week...

Men's Soccer had a huge win over West Virginia on Saturday night. For further details you can read the recap or check out my in-game blog. It was great to see senior Scott Larrabee score the game winner and even better when I heard from the BIG EAST that he was named to the weekly honor roll. We are now third in the conference but our seeding will be dependant on both our play against Providence on Saturday and how WVU does the rest of the week. Either way, we've clinched a berth in the BIG EAST Tournament which is already an impressive accomplishment.  Saturday is Senior Day so come out to North Kehoe Field to celebrate our three seniors Mark Zeman, Len Coleman and Scott Larrabee.
 
Women's Basketball started practice this past week and from what I hear things are going pretty well.  The team has its first closed scrimmage this Saturday which will be the first test for the freshmen.  Georgetown was picked to finish eighth in the BIG EAST at the league's Media Day on Thursday up in New York City at ESPN Zone.  Seniors Jaleesa Butler, Shanice Fuller and Kenya Kirkland joined Coach on the trip and did a wonderful job in all of the interviews for both television and print.  When Sha got a little nervous in her final interview it was nice to see Kenya step in and offer to interview with her to make the process easier. 
 
Women's Lacrosse is finishing up its fall schedule this Saturday hosting a four-team tournament on Multi-Sport Field.  While these games don't mean anything in the standings it is important that the team gets some practice in before breaking for the semester since they'll start right up in January.  Since the tournament will be held on Halloween, we have been campaigning for Head Coach Ricky Fried to dress in costume for one of the games.  Some ideas were Captain America (since he is the coach of the US team) or SpiderCoach (so he can shoot webs at the refs to get an explanation on a call). Please send your vote or any other suggestions to bj57@georgetown.edu.  Also, the team will be hosting a tournament on Sunday for players to come out and get a run in before the end of the fall season.
 
As you can see, this is a pretty busy week for us so keep checking GUHoyas.com to find out what is going on with your favorite sport (or to see pictures on Ricky in his Halloween costume)!
