A Fun Fall...So Far

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
      This is the start of the sixth school year for me at Georgetown and there's no question in my mind that it has been the most fun.

Being a Georgetown student-athlete has its perks, but shaking hands with the Vice President is one of them? Well, I guess anything is possible as a Hoya. On Tuesday I was one of the lucky twelve female student-athletes to attend Vice President Joe Biden's announcement regarding Title IX. We met around 12:15 in our business causal attire to be chauffeured over to George Washington's campus for the event.

 

Greetings from McDonough.  Both the men's and women's cross country teams (men - 14th in the country, women - 15th) are heading to Terre Haute, Ind., for the NCAA Championships on Monday.  The men's team travels to nationals after winning the NCAA Mid-Atlantic East Regional for the sixth-straight year.  Bumbi (Andrew Bumbalough) became the first Hoya to ever win back-to-back NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional titles and for the second-striaght year he was named the Mid-Atlantic Region Athlete of the Year.  Pat Henner was also recognized as the men's Mid-Atlantic Region Coach of the Year. 

As I've learned from my coworker Barb Jonas and former intern Jess Palermo (who left the Hilltop for Chi-Town and now works for the Big Ten Conference), Wisconsin is not "Wisco" or a place where "Sconnies" come from  ... it's the W-I.  And for the first time ever this weekend, the BIG EAST Cross Country Championships are heading to the Cheese State with the Hoyas traveling to Kenosha, Wis., to compete at the Wayne E. Dannehl National Cross Country Course on the campus of UW-Parkside.
