Silver Linings and Silver Medalists...

Serious computer issues, such as hard drive crashes, viruses, etc. make up close to a third of my nightmares, which I'm guessing is pretty common in the sports information world (spiders and the Orioles moving from Baltimore are probably less common nightmares for others). On Tuesday, the nightmare became a reality.  My computer decided it would no longer recognize my hard drive, wiping out two seasons worth of field hockey, softball and volleyball statistics. Mom Sakamoto explains to me that was the beauty of the typewriter. Anyway, three days and a new hard drive later and I'm back and running! Special thanks to Darrell Joyner, who regularly fixes technical problems in our office in an extremely quick fashion.

Now back to the Hoyas...



It hasn't been a dream season (clever transition, Ryan!) for Georgetown volleyball, but Tory Rezin has become an interesting side story. With 21 combined digs in last weekend's losses to Marquette and Syracuse, Rezin is up to 398 for the season, moving to third place for digs in a season by a Hoya. Rezin now trails Simone Kollman who had 472 digs in 1990 and 420 in 1991. Rezin and the Hoyas have six matches left, including Saturday's match at USF.



Georgetown field hockey fell in the first ever "Battle for the Jacobs Complex" (I'm still the only one who calls it that) on Wednesday when they lost to American, 4-0. The Hoyas and Eagles have shared the William I Jacobs Complex at American University this season and met for the first time since 2003. American, winners of six-consecutive Patriot League titles, took a quick 3-0 lead from which GU was never able to recover. Freshman Clodagh Coghlan did make seven saves, several on point blank shot opportunities.



Senior captain Kristen Volpe was held scoreless against American, but will look to become just the fourth different Georgetown field hockey player this decade to score 10 goals in a season...

During the Georgetown Crew and Rowing trip to Boston, Mass. for the Head of the Charles last weekend, they received word that former Georgetown rower and two-time Olympic Medalist Missy Schwen Ryan was inducted into the National Rowing Hall of Fame.


Schwen Ryan, who graduated from the Hilltop in 1994 was a silver medalist in the coxless pairs at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and a bronze medalist at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. She also donated a kidney in between. Look out in future blogs for more on Missy Schwen Ryan...


Both Men's Crew and Women's Rowing will be in action at the Princeton Chase this weekend. Make sure to check early next week for results from the races.
