April 25, 2012
As we move through our spring sport season, I want to pause for a moment to share with you some of the exciting recent happenings in the Georgetown athletics department.
As part of our mission we stress academic achievement to all of our student-athletes representing the University. Eleven Georgetown field hockey players were named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division I National Academic Squad when the awards were announced on March 19. Senior defender Kalli Krumpos (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) led the Hoyas as a four-year honoree.
Emily Infeld, a 10-time All-American, added an individual National Championship trophy to her team National Cross Country Championship, winning the 3,000-meter run at the 2012 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, hosted by Boise State.
Sailing World Magazine’s Coaches Poll named the Women’s team at #1 with the Hoyas #2 in the Coed Rankings. For the second consecutive weekend, the women’s sailing team dominated a big Interconference event. At the St. Mary’s Women’s Interconference race the Hoyas finished 1st of 18, scoring 71 points.
The Georgetown University women's tennis team finished off a strong regular season campaign with a 7-0 win over Villanova on Saturday at the McDonough Outdoor Tennis Complex and following that with a 5-2 win over No 57 Syracuse. The Hoyas have won eight-consecutive matches and nine of their last 10 to finish the regular season with a mark of 15-5 overall and 5-2 in BIG EAST Conference play.
Community Involvement and Celebration
Former Georgetown University Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson Jr. will be among a group of former athletes and coaches to be recognized with a Pioneer Award by the John McLendon Minority Scholarship Foundation, in partnership with the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). The Pioneer Award will be presented at the 47th Annual NACDA Convention at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas on June 27.
Georgetown University senior men's basketball player Jason Clark (Arlington, Va./Bishop O'Connell) was named BIG EAST Men’s Basketball Sportsman of the Year by the conference coaches. Clark was selected 1st team all BIG EAST while Henry Sims earned 3rd team honors and Hollis Thompson was an honorable mention selection.
Women’s basketball Junior shooting guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) and senior forward Tia Magee(Tulsa, Okla./Jenks) both earned All-BIG EAST honors. Rodgers was a unanimous selection to the first team for the third-consecutive season and it was Magee's first-career honorable mention honor Rodgers added to her honors when she was named an honorable mention All-American by the Associated Press and by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.
Athletic Training Facility
On Thursday evening, Georgetown will present to the D.C. Zoning Commission our modified plans to construct a new Athletic Training Facility (ATF) on campus.
This space will improve the experience for student athletes coming to Georgetown to study and compete. It will also allow us to remain competitive with our peers.
The ATF was originally approved as a new building in 2007, when the impacts of the economic crisis required us to delay the ATF while we focused on other priorities. We completed the Hariri Building for the Business School and constructed our new science building, Regents Hall, which is on track to open this summer. The ATF is the next building we plan to construct on campus.
We have resumed the design phase for the ATF, in consultation with city regulatory bodies. We are confident that the Zoning Commission will approve our designs and we can move forward with our fundraising for this building.
Georgetown Hosts Forum for Young Families
On a recent Saturday, Georgetown Athletics, in conjunction with other University departments, hosted 30 young families from the local Georgetown community in an open forum that began a conversation as to how the University can extend its current resources to this group. Many great ideas were discussed and a couple of actionable items are to enhance the Hoya Kids Club (www.guhoyas.com/kidsclub) in a variety of ways. One of which is to host sport specific clinics throughout the calendar year and have our student-athletes take a leadership role by coaching the youth during these clinics. Additionally, we will help to bring the community of young families together at our various events by designating a Hoya Kids Club section in the stands.
Former Georgetown Baseball Coach Passes Away
Former Georgetown Baseball Coach Larry Geracioti, who guided the Hoyas to consecutive BIG EAST Championship appearances in the mid-1980s, passed away on Sunday at age 85. Geracioti, who was inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association's Hall of Fame in 2008, was one of the nation's winningest managers and he enjoyed a long and successful career as an administrator and educator. While on the Hilltop, Geracioti amassed 110 wins from 1986-93, fourth-most all-time. In his first year, he helped guide the Hoyas to their second consecutive BIG EAST Championships appearance by going 12-6 in the conference. He also managed the last GU team to finish a season above .500 as the 1986 team ended the year at 23-22.
Women’s Basketball Coach Terri Williams Flournoy was hired by Auburn University. I would like to thank Terri for her many contributions to Georgetown Athletics and to the Georgetown community. Over the course of the past eight seasons, Terri has elevated Georgetown women's basketball to unprecedented heights. Along with President DeGioia and our athletics staff, I thank Terri for her dedicated service to Georgetown and we wish her and her family our very best. She did a remarkable job during her tenure and she will definitely be missed on the Hilltop.
Finding a new leader for our program is the top priority. We are looking for someone who will embrace the high standards of academic and competitive excellence that defines Georgetown Athletics and Georgetown University.
I hope to continue to see you at many of our home events over the remainder of the spring season. Please make the effort to come out to support our terrific student athletes.
