On the men's side, the Hoyas were ranked 25th, receiving 110 points and were the top-ranked team in the BIG EAST Conference. Georgetown returns graduate student Andrew Springer (Westerly, R.I./Westerly), who was the team's top finisher at the NCAA Championships last year, as well as junior Miles Schoedler (Ocean View, N.J./Ocean View), sophomore Darren Fahy (Carsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon) and junior John Murray (Shrewsbury, Mass./Shrewsbury).
