The field hockey team just hosted the Georgetown Invitational this past weekend which included the Hoyas, Bryant University, Davidson College, and St. Francis University (Pa.) The Hoyas defeated the Bryant University Bulldogs on Saturday and the St. Francis Red Flash on Sunday to seal the 2-0 start for the first time since 2000.

Catherine Shugrue struck three times to record the first hat trick against Bryant since Kristen Volpe did it a year ago against Lock Haven. Annie Wilson, Kimberly Keating, and Charlotte Tierney also contributed scoring in Saturday's victory.

On Sunday, the Hoyas secured their first 2-0 start by defeating the Red Flash 4-0.  Briana Pereira recorded her first career shutout and the first shutout since former Hoya Deirdre Crovo held Brown scoreless in 2007.

Pereira and Shugrue were selected to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll which was announced by the conference on Monday afternoon.

As a new Georgetown student myself, I would like to wish everyone a great first day of school tomorrow and especially to our student-athletes as you begin to balance practices and competitions along with classes.
