Senior Student-Athletes Recognized at Brunch

May 19, 2017

WASHINGTON – For the third-straight year, the Georgetown University Department of Athletics bid farewell to its graduating senior class with a brunch held at the Healy Family Student Center on Thursday morning.

After being welcomed by Assistant Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Leadership and Development Mike Lorenzen, the group of more than 100 senior student-athletes were addressed by Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed as a slideshow of their four-year accomplishments appeared on a screen.

“We’ve started to do this over the last couple of years and it is a great way to honor our seniors and their accomplishments,” Reed said. “Every year, I amazed by the accomplishments – on the field, in the classroom and in our community – of our student-athletes. This year is no different and it is what makes Georgetown a truly special place.”

The brunch featured a keynote address from former Georgetown tennis player Perry Rogers, who is the CEO of PRP, which includes a client roster with names such as Shaquille O’Neal, Kyrie Irving and Bryce Petty. PRP has secured endorsement deals in excess of $75 million on behalf of O’Neal and Rogers has renegotiated NBA contracts for him with the Miami Heat, the Phoenix Suns and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He graduated from Georgetown with a degree in accounting and then earned his law degree from the University of Arizona.

The athletics department also recognized six student-athletes who will graduate Phi Beta Kappa from Georgetown:

  • Margaret Dunne (2017, bachelor of science, international health, 3.881) – women’s rowing
  • Sabrina Gosman (2017, bachelor of arts, economics, 3.919) – women’s rowing
  • Albert Kraus (2017, bachelor of arts, economics, 3.917) – sailing
  • Zoe Park (2017, bachelor of science, computer science, 3.926) – women’s soccer
  • Ryan Murphy (2018, bachelor of arts, linguistics) – women’s swimming
  • Bennett Stehr (2018, bachelor of science, international politics, 3.972) – baseball

A group of more than 20 student-athletes were recognized for their participation in the Cooper Athletics Leadership Program (CALP). Launched in the 2015-16 academic year, Georgetown began recognizing the investment by both student-athletes and coaches in their professional development with two different certificates. Senior student-athletes who have completed at least 20 hours of classroom and applied practice in leadership, demonstrated threshold level ability in the six core leadership competencies, conducted a 360-degree review process and received support from their head coaches receive CALP Student-Athlete Certificates.

Student-athletes who received CALP certificates included:
Nick Leonard, baseball
Gabriela Elvina, softball
Victoria Carroll, women’s rowing
Christina Johnson, women’s rowing
Jordan Portner, men’s tennis
Rachel Skonecki, field hockey
Alessandra Gargicevich-Almeida, softball
