Hoyas Fall To Duke, Maryland On the Road

The Georgetown women’s lacrosse team has not been able to put together a solid 60-minute effort on both sides of the ball yet this year, and their recent two-game skid reflects that. The Hoyas (2-3) have dropped two road games in the past week – on Saturday to the No. 5/6-ranked[Read More…]

Only the best of the best qualify for the NCAA Indoor Track and Field championships, and in Fayetteville, Ark., the Hoyas ended their season with six All-American titles.
