WASHINGTON - Sunday evening's Saxa Awards was the third annual ceremony organized by Georgetown University student-athletes to celebrate the accomplishments of their peers on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

The 2012 banquet, held at the Leavey Center and organized by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) brought Hoyas student-athletes together with coaches, faculty, administrators and staff to celebrate the accomplishments of the Hoyas during the 2011-12 academic year.

"The SAXA Awards is special event because all student-athletes participate in the nomination and selection of the award winners," Associate Athletic Director for Compliance Mark Rountree said. "It's a celebration of Georgetown student-athletes' accomplishments on the field, in the classroom, and in the community."
