The Georgetown Volleyball squad will play two home matches this weekend. Friday is the Dig Pink match in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Wear your pink as you support your Hoyas. Any student who wears pink to the match will receive a Chipotle gift card. Other prizes will be given away throughout the evening. The Hoyas play Rutgers at 8 p.m. on Friday.
This Sunday, the Blue & Gray will face Seton Hall at 2 p.m. Come to McDonough Arena dressed in your appropriate Halloween costume to cheer on your Hoyas.
Who doesn't love a themed party? This weekend is your chance to attend two as the Hoyas take on two BIG EAST opponents.
Last season, Tory Rezin (Morris, Ill./Morris) broke the single-season record for most digs with 475. The previous record of 472 was achieved by Simone Kollmann in 1990. Rezin broke a record almost 20 years old.
The Georgetown volleyball squad (11-7, 1-1 BIG EAST) has been setting career highs this season. Ashley Malone (San Jose, Calif./St. Francis) set a career-high 58 assists and Lindsay Wise (Raleigh, N.C./Raleigh Charter) recorded a career-high 19 kills this season. Malone, who tallied 1148 assists last season, is now fifth among single-season assist leaders.
We have received BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll three weeks in a row thanks to stellar performances from Wise and Vanessa Dorismond (Cary, N.C./Cardinal Gibbons). We will undoubtedly see more Hoyas receive the honor this season.
Rezin and Malone are on pace to set more records at the end of the season. Come out and support your Hoyas as they take on BIG EAST opponents, deliver outstanding performances and make Georgetown volleyball history.
The Blue & Gray host DePaul on Friday at 7 p.m. and Notre Dame on Sunday at 2 p.m.
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.
