Oh, You Fancy, Huh? ... Like Drake Fancy

So, if you haven't already heard the song, "Fancy" by Drake is played at least once a day in the sports information office.  And rightly so as far as I'm concerned!  We have been fancy thus far in the 2010-11 school year with a lot of new and exciting things happening on the Hilltop.  I'll give you the update in my world of publications as you enjoy the Georgetown Homecoming Weekend!

 

A Little Help from my Friends

On Tuesday evening, Diana Pulupa and I attended SneakerBall VII volunteering for the Greater Washington Sports Alliance.  It was a wonderful event that raised money for the foundation and celebrated some of the best athletes D.C. has to offer. 

My LABORING Labor Day Weekend

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In recent years, I'm normally home for Labor Day weekend enjoying BBQ with the family and sitting on my deck.  This Labor Day weekend was much different, however. 

FRIDAY- I worked in the office from 10:30 till 3:30. Then I worked the Men's Soccer game against at 4 which finished with the Hoyas defeating the Northeastern Huskies in double OT! Then afterwards, I was in the office till 9:30 preparing for my weekend of field hockey games as we would take on La Salle and Temple. 

SATURDAY- It was my first weekend with Ryan Sakamoto on the road with the football team, so I was a little nervous going into the game.  I wouldn't have much to worry about because I did have BaBar to my left which put me at ease.  The field hockey had an exciting game as La Salle and Georgetown exchanged goals back and forth with the Hoyas eventually prevailing 6-4 on Annie Wilson's six point effort (2 goals, 2 assists) .

SUNDAY- The Hoyas took on the Temple Owls which featured a matchup of two 3-0 teams in the young season. Ryan Sakamoto was back in the press box fresh off of very little sleep and a win for the Hoyas football team over Davidson with a score of 20-10.  At William I. Jacobs, the Hoyas played their hearts out, but fell to the Owls in a tough 2-0 loss. 

MONDAY- At North Kehoe Field, the Women's Soccer team would take on the Fairfield University Stags.  The Hoyas would go on to defeat the Stags 2-1 in OT on a beautiful corner kick by Samantha Baker which was definitely a crowd pleaser and the stands filled with excitement after.

To conclude my weekend on the Hilltop, I helped out by working the second game of the DC Invitational which had George Mason and American playing the second match. 

Overall, it was a very exciting weekend to be in the District and definitely a fun weekend.  It didn't consist of burgers, my deck or Mom's cooking, but it was a LABORING Labor Day weekend.  It's weird how things change in a year.

2014?????

Today marks the first day of classes of the Class of 2014.  Yes, you read that correctly.  2014.  Can you believe it?  Last night was the pep rally at McDonough Arena welcoming all of the new students.  It was a great time (read the recap and see video here) but it got me to thinking about what these kids have seen in their lifetime.

Nike Offers Summer Opportunities

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Senior Men's Soccer Player Ben Slingerland is interning at Nike this summer, he has agreed to keep GUHoyas.com updated throughout his internship...

I got an email from the Georgetown Athletic department about a summer internship opportunity with Nike, and I submitted my resume. I've always been a fan of Nike products and I've even been lucky enough to own some Nike stock (that I've seen rise rapidly over the last five or so years). I had two phone interviews and was able to land a two-month internship in the North America soccer marketing department.

Post Thanksgiving

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Hope everyone had a really nice Thanksgiving and got to spend the holiday with people they care about.  Turkey Day consisted of sleeping in, eating good food and watching a Bronco win to cap it all off.  My parents have moved from just outside Philadelphia to Allentown, Pa so the drive has turned into a 3 1/2 hour trip up I-95 to a 3 1/2 hour trek across I-83 and I-76.  Not that this matters to many, but the scenery is definitely different.

Playoffs. Playoffs mark the end of the regular season and the start of a new one. The new season is the fight for our lives. Any game lost ends it all. Every game won continues our climb to our goal of a NCAA berth and winning the BIG EAST tournament.

Men's Soccer at West Virginia- LIVE THREAD

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Good evening Hoya soccer fans!  I'm in lovely Morgantown, W.Va. tonight for a huge game between between Georgetown and West Virginia.  Just to set the stage, here are a few notes...

- The Hoyas have clinched a BIG EAST Tournament berth and are currently fourth in the Blue Division

- West Virginia is third in the Blue Division but has not lost a game since Sept. 18

- Georgetown is 9-4 all-time against the Mountaineers

- The Fall colors are lovely here in West Virginia, driving to the pitch we saw some picturesque scenery

- The coaching staff gave the Morgantown Panera a B+ for dinner, some team members were not pleased with the bagel selection during pre-game meal

- Junior defender Ben Slingerland has never tried a pickle until last night, he was not impressed

- Just 13 minutes to kickoff, it's not too chilly out and there is a breeze so overall, a pretty good night to play soccer

 

 

Corner Kicks: The Georgetown Men's Soccer Blog

Benjamin Slingerland here, making a guest appearance on the Georgetown Men's Soccer Blog for young Jose Colchao. As I write this blog, we're in Milwaukee's airport, awaiting a flight back to the Nation's Capital after coming up on the short end of a 1-0 decision to a hungry Marquette team on Saturday night. Earlier this week we dropped a very competitive battle against cross-town rival #9 Maryland 2-1.  This recent slump marks the first time we've lost back-to-back games this season. However with only four games remaining in the regular season there is no time to feel sorry for ourselves as on Wednesday we host Notre Dame.  The Fighting Irish are tied with us for third on our side of the BIG EAST boasting a 5-3 BIG EAST record.
