WASHINGTON - All of the team captains and head coaches for Georgetown Athletic teams gathered in Riggs Library earlier this week for the annual Captains and Coaches Dinner, held by University President John J. DeGioia.

The dinner is a chance for the student-athletes and coaches to interact toward the end of the school year, but also provides a chance for their team's achievements during the year to be recognized.

"It's a pleasure to be here with all of you tonight to celebrate your contributions to our community, your commitment to your teams and your leadership as captains and as coaches both in competition and throughout our Georgetown family," DeGioia said. "I'm grateful to have the opportunity to gather like this to celebrate you and your achievements as leaders within our community. We deeply appreciate everything you do."

The group was also addressed by Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed before keynote speakers, Len and Liz Stanmore. Len Stanmore is a distinguished Global Explorer and an entrepreneur who has achieved success in many areas both personally and professional. As a world explorer and accomplished mountaineer, he has reached the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. In addition, he has successfully compete in 250 kilometer endurance races in the coldest, windiest, dirties and hottest most forbidding deserts on the plant.

"Not often does a player, of any sort, attend a dinner of that stature, let alone be in the presence of such a remarkable couple in the Stanmore's," junior men's basketball player Markel Starks (Accokeek, Md./Georgetown Prep) said. "I think Mr. Len Stanmore has really opened a lot of eyes with his quest, determination, and will, to have achieved the 7 Summits, the "Grand Slam," and do this within a timely fashion. The ordinary individual, even an athlete, will not be able to achieve such heights, regardless if they had the financial stability to go on such adventures. But, the lesson learned was, `do not be afraid of testing yourself.' A lot of times people are so afraid to fail that they are unwilling to try various things; therefore, we continue to settle. Mr. And Mrs. Stanmore are two remarkable people and I am glad they were able to speak at the Coaches and Captain's Dinner."

"The guest speaker was incredible to say the least," senior baseball player Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester). "He showed everyone in the room that just because sports may end does not mean that you no longer have a purpose or a meaning in life. The program (Trekking for Kids) is great and really shines light on the fact that even when the competition and teamwork of a college team may one day end, there are still plenty of competitive and productive options out there."

Aside from hearing the Stanmore's speak, the evening was a chance to interact with other student-athletes and coaches outside of the halls of McDonough Arena.

"Dinner was a great time," Leeson said. "It's always nice to socialize with other athletes and hear what's going on in various programs within the university, but it was especially nice to meet the other coaches and President DeGioia in a smaller more personal gathering."

"The Coaches and Captains Dinner was a tremendous event," senior women's golfer Katie Skinner (Boise, Idaho/Bishop Kelly) said. "We had the opportunity to interact with other captains and coaches from other teams, and it was an honor to be recognized by President DeGioia for all of our efforts. It was amazing hearing about the global adventures and philanthropic work of the speakers, Len and Liz Stanmore, as well. Their accomplishments were so inspiring to me, particularly as an athlete."

"The dinner was a great experience," Starks said. "To have been in a room with all the outstanding athletes and captains of the present Georgetown University was absolutely remarkable. You hear about all the superior athletes in the school and very seldom does someone ever get to see them up close. Then, you get the opportunity to fully appreciate why they receive the accolades that they do. So, when you have an opportunity to meet and greet these individuals, it is a great honor."
