Reed's Reflections: A Letter from the Director of Athletics

Feb. 10, 2012

As we head down the homestretch of our winter sports and into the opening of our spring sport seasons, I want to pause for a moment to share with you some of the recent happenings in the Georgetown athletics department.

Academic Commitment
I am pleased to report that that the Team Grade Point Average Report for the Fall 2011 semester was the most impressive in the memory of Hoya Athletics! Every one of our teams posted outstanding collective GPA's, including seven squads with a stellar 3.4 GPA or above. We can all be proud of our student athletes and coaches for their dedication and continued commitment to academic excellence. As difficult as it is to balance the competitive, academic, and service demands of being an elite collegiate athlete, our students have embraced the challenge and continue to exceed our expectations.

WXC NCAACompetitive Success
We recently honored Coach Chris Miltenberg and our Women's Cross Country team for winning the NCAA National Championship last November. Coach Miltenberg and the members of the team received championship rings at the Verizon Center during a halftime presentation at the Men's Basketball team's recent victory over Connecticut. It was just the second team NCAA Championship in University history (Men's basketball 1984 was the other), even though we have had numerous individual and sailing championships.

In addition, both the Men's (18-4, #11) and Women's (18-5, #14) Basketball teams continue to enjoy exceptional success. Each team has spent most of the season in the top 25 national rankings.

Community Involvement and CelebrationWBB
Players and coaches from women's lacrosse, soccer, softball, volleyball and golf partnered successfully with the Washington Mystics of the WNBA in early February to host the first National Girls and Women in Sports Day. The event was held in conjunction with the women's basketball home game against Rutgers and a near sellout crowd.

WinfieldLast Saturday evening, our annual First Pitch dinner brought together many Hoya baseball supporters to share an enjoyable evening with MLB Hall of Famer, Dave Winfield and former Hoya player and collegiate coach, Tom Walter `91.

I am looking forward with anticipation to the upcoming Hall of Fame weekend when seven former Hoyas will be honored, including All-America basketball player Dikembe Mutombo (I'91, H'10), track & field national champion John Trautmann (B'90), field hockey star Kristi Middleton (B'92, L'95), tennis standout Steve Fishbach (C'92), leading football receiver Clayton Wagner (C'79, G '79), and two championship players from the 1993 Sweet 16 women's basketball team, Kris Witfill (C'93) and Leni Wilson (C'93).

Welcome and FarewellMBB
We have extended a warm welcome to our new Associate Athletics Director and Senior Women's Administrator Sharon Brummel as she joins the Georgetown Athletics family. Sharon has a well-rounded background in athletic administration and intercollegiate coaching. She will be assuming many of duties performed by Debby Morey who is now serving as the Associate Vice President and Chief Business Officer here at the University.

I hope to see many of you at many of our home events over the coming months. Please make the effort to come out to support our terrific student athletes.

Hoya Saxa!
