An update on Georgetown sports programs:
Women’s basketball: The Hoyas released their 2014-15 nonconference schedule on Friday. The Hoyas will play five home games and seven road contests, including four in the 2014 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Women’s Challenge. Georgetown will face one NCAA tournament qualifier form last season as well as three squads that competed in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament.
Track and field: The team sent six student-athletes to historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. for the 2014 NCAA track and field championships. Six all-American performances were highlighted by Rachel Schneider’s ninth-place finish in the women’s 1,500-meter finals and Andrew Springer taking 13th in the men’s 10,000 finals. The Hoyas also sent a pair of athletes in both the men's 3,000 steeplechase semifinals (Max Darrah, Dylan Sorensen) and in the women's 800 semifinals (Chelsea Cox, Andrea Keklak).
Sailing: Georgetown picked up three all-American honors following the Intercollegiate Sailing Association national championships. Nevin Snow was named a coed all-American while Katia DaSilva was named a crew all-American. The duo finished second in the A division at the ICSA Gill coed national championships. Alex Post was named an honorable mention coed all-American following his efforts in the B division at the coed championships.
Women’s lacrosse: The U.S. women’s lacrosse national team hosted tryouts this weekend at Multi-Sport Field. The women are coming off of a gold medal and undefeated record at the 2013 World Cup. Georgetown Coach Ricky Fried was the head coach for that U.S. squad and will continue in that role through 2017. The coaching staff invited 88 players from around the country. Georgetown junior Caroline Tarzian and former Hoya Jordan Trautman will participate in the camp.
