26th Annual Athletic Recognition Event to be Held on Friday, September 28

Aug. 22, 2012

WASHINGTON - The 26th Annual Athletic Recognition Event, hosted by Hoyas Unlimited and the Annual Fund for Georgetown Athletics, will be held on Friday, Sept. 28 at Leo J. O'Donovan Hall at Georgetown University. The Athletic Recognition event will run from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. as the athletics department celebrates the accomplishments of the 2011-12 academic year.

Several awards will be presented at the event, highlighted by the Robert A. Duffey Scholar-Athlete Award. This year's recipient is former women's soccer player Ingrid Wells (C'11). Wells was a three-time First Team All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) during her career at Georgetown and led the Hoyas to two NCAA Tournament appearances, reaching the Elite Eight during the 2010 season. Wells led the Hoyas in scoring last year with 30 points, tallying nine goals and a team-high 12 assists. She was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year for the second-straight season and she earned All-BIG EAST First Team honors for the fourth time in her career. Wells is the all-time leading scorer in school history with 31 goals and 46 assists for 108 points, becoming the first player in program history to reach 100 points. She is the all-time leader in assists and is second in goals scored.

Emily Infeld (B'12) of the women's cross country and track & field teams, will be recognized with the Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Female Athlete. The 2011-12 season marked a banner year for the Hoya who despite a minor injury in the early part of the cross country season, led Georgetown to its first ever women's cross country team national championship. During the indoor season, Infeld anchored a fourth-place distance medley relay squad at the NCAA Championships and just one day later won the women's 3,000-meter run for her first individual national championship. Infeld closed the year with a runner-up finish in the women's 1,500-meter run at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Andrew Schaetzke (B'12), a former football player and the 2011 Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year, will be presented with the Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Male Athlete. Schaetzke became just the ninth consensus All-American in Patriot League history and was named the ECAC Defensive Player of the Year as well as Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year after a stellar senior season. He led the league in tackles for loss (22.5) and sacks (13), finishing sixth and eighth in the nation in those categories, respectively. Schaetzke also had 69 tackles, one interception, five pass breakups, three quarterback hurries and three fumbles forced during a season that saw the Hoyas post their best record since 1999.

Head Football Coach Kevin Kelly is the recipient of the Outstanding Coaching Achievement Award after leading the Hoyas to an 8-3 overall record last season, being named the Patriot League Coach of the Year and was among the 20 finalists for the Eddie Robinson FCS National Coach of the Year. The Hoyas defense ranked among the nation's best in several categories, including scoring defense (14th), red zone defense (8th), rush defense (10th) and turnover margin (4th), while the opportunistic offense was third in the country in red zone efficiency, helping Georgetown make it to the Patriot League Championship Game, the first league championship the team has played for since joining the PL in 2001.

The athletics department will also recognize a pair of teams that won national championships, with the women's cross country team claiming the NCAA title in November and the sailing team winning the ICSA/Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship.

Hoyas Unlimited will also recognize Marc H. Sulam (B'84) with the Outstanding Contribution to Athletics Award for his contributions to the men's basketball program.

The J. Gregory Carroll Award will be announced that evening.
