Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University women's lacrosse team will complete the regular season with a contest against Yale University on Saturday at Multi-Sport Field. The Hoyas are 12-5 for the season and are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in the BIG EAST championship game last Sunday. GU will look to rebound and add another win to its NCAA Tournament resume before the Selection Show on Sunday evening.
The Hoyas are coming off of a week's rest after last Sunday's BIG EAST Championship. GU trailed Notre Dame by eight goals late into the second half, but came back in the closing minutes with chances to tie it up. Georgetown eventually fell, 12-10.
The Hoyas had seven players named to the BIG EAST First or Second Teams and three people earn major awards. Senior Bridget Noon (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary's) was named the conference defensive player of the year, Ashby Kaestner (Trappe, Md./Saints Peter and Paul) earned co-midfielder of the year and Head Coach Ricky Fried was awarded his first BIG EAST Coach of the Year honor.
Georgetown is 1-1 all-time against Yale. The Hoyas downed the Bulldogs, 5-4, in 1997 but fell in the squads' first meeting in 1995 by a score of, 10-7. This year, Yale is 5-10 overall and finished with a 1-6 record in the Ivy League. The team is led by Jenn Warden who has 48 points on the season with 41 goals and seven assists.
GU is currently ranked eighth in the nation by both the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches' Association and Insidelacrosse.com. In the latest NCAA RPI poll, the Hoyas were also ranked eighth.
After losing in the championship game of the conference tournament, Georgetown is hoping for one of the eight at-large bids into the NCAA Tournament, but will need a win on Saturday to keep the hope alive. The NCAA Tournament field is made up of 16 squads. Eight receive an automatic bid by winning their respective conference tournament and the other eight are chosen by the selection committee. The field will be announced Sunday evening.
Saturday's game is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field. There will be a brief ceremony prior to the opening draw to recognize the senior class. Live stats and a webcast featuring Chuck Timanus will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
