WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University field hockey team (1-17, 1-4 BIG EAST) will wrap up its 2009 season this weekend when the Hoyas host University of Louisville (10-7, 3-2 BIG EAST) on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. and Radford University (9-8) on Sunday morning at 11 a.m. both at the William I Jacobs Recreational Complex at American University.

Sunday's matchup with Radford will be Senior Day, as the Hoyas will honor its lone senior Kristen Volpe (Pennington, N.J./Hopewell Valley Central) prior to the game. Volpe has made an impact on the program throughout her four years, leading the Hoyas in goals for two consecutive seasons to close out her career. During her senior season Volpe has twice been named to the BIG EAST Field Hockey Weekly Honor Roll, the first weekly conference honors the Hoyas have earned since rejoining the BIG EAST in 2006.

LOUISVILLE CARDINALS (Saturday, October 31 - 10 a.m.) Before Senior Day the Hoyas will meet with University of Louisville on Saturday morning. In three prior matchups the Cardinals have outscored Georgetown 25-0, winning last year's match 10-0. The Cardinals come to D.C. on a two-match winning streak, having defeated Pacific, 6-0 and Iowa, 2-0.

Heather Bustanoby is among the BIG EAST Conference's top goalkeepers ranking second in the conference with two shutouts and third with a 1.60 goals against average. Nicole Youman is fifth in the BIG EAST with 33 points (10 goals, 13 assists), while Hayley Turner has 32 points (11 goals, 10 assists).

RADFORD HIGHLANDERS (Sunday, November 1 - 11 a.m.) Radford is 9-8 picking up a victory in its last match against Appalachian State. Prior to its victory over the Mountaineers, the Highlanders fell to Longwood, 4-3 and defeated Davidson in consecutive games.

Courtney Poole leads Radford with seven goals, while Lara Cariker is second on the team with six goals. Jennifer Wisniewski has started 16 of 17 games in the cage, holding opponents to 2.15 goals per game, making 105 saves on the season.
