The women’s rowing team opened its fall schedule at the Head of the Potomac regatta, an annual event hosted by the Potomac Boat Club. The Colonials raced in two events, the Four-with and and the Open Eight.

For GW, the season-opening regatta is an opportunity to preview the lineup for the season. Rather than a set starting crew, GW fielded two crews for the Eight. The “buff’ and the “blue” crews were mixed lineups to help determine which rowers worked as a cohesive unit.

“It’s a fun opportunity to get out there and gauge what type of team we’re going to be,” head coach Eric Carcich said.

Carcich noted a strong sense of unity and a driven mentality within his team this season.

GW had a strong showing at the regatta, placing top-three in both the Four and Eight. Led by senior coxswain Rachel Schwartz, the Four crew finished second (17:44.7) out of 11 teams. The Georgetown team placed first in the event (17:16.9).

In the women’s Eight, GW went with two varsity crews. The crew led by junior coxswain Honore Olson finished second (15:57.3) behind Georgetown (15:26.9). The second crew, led by senior coxswain Lydia Barber finished third (16:01.0). JV women’s crew also completed the race with a sixth-place finish (16:22.9).

Entering his eighth year as head coach, Carcich is hoping to improve upon last year’s results.

In the 2015-2016 season GW placed fifth overall at the Atlantic 10 Championship. Women’s rowing has two top-three finishes at the A-10 Championship with Carcich at the helm.

“We have high goals for this spring,” Carcich said. “It’s a 165-day season and we’re still developing.”

Carcich expressed the importance of fine-tuning the technical areas of team as the season progresses. For Carcich, these improvements are the difference-makers that will lead the team into a strong spring campaign.

“We’re looking to go as fast as we can for 215, 220 strokes a day to prepare for the championship in the spring,” he said.

The women’s rowing team’s next race is at the Navy Day Regatta in Philadelphia, PA on October 15th.

Updated: Sept. 18, 2016 at 4:36 p.m.

Mike Lonergan’s attorneys said the former men’s basketball head coach will “seek appropriate relief” for his termination following a probe into verbal and emotional abuse allegations.

“[Lonergan] cooperated fully with the University’s Title IX review.  The University never identified to the Coach his accuser, much less the details and the substance of the anonymous accusations,” a statement, obtained by the Hatchet Sunday afternoon, said.

“He was denied administrative due process in the form of a hearing as required by his contract and the policies of the University.  The University failed and refused to give Coach Lonergan written notice of the outcome of the Title IX review, which is required by the University’s own policy, and the University violated the confidentiality provisions of the policy by issuing a press release about the review,” according to the statement by attorneys Scott Tompsett and John Dowd.

The statement follows the University’s formal announcement on Saturday that Lonergan has been dismissed from the program after an independent investigation concluded he had “engaged in conduct inconsistent with the university’s values.”

The attorneys thanked current and former players, their parents and coaching staff for their support on Lonergan’s behalf and said he “looks forward” to coaching for another university.

“Coach Lonergan has been a college basketball coach for twenty-eight years with a superior, unblemished reputation for inspiring and protecting his players. He has graduated every single player he recruited,” according to the statement.

Updated: Sept. 17, 2016 at 5:14 p.m.

Men’s basketball head coach Mike Lonergan has officially been dismissed from the program, according to a statement released by Provost Forrest Maltzman Saturday afternoon.

The University plans to announce an interim head coach soon.

“The university has created and is committed to maintaining a community where all students, faculty and staff feel welcome and comfortable. We value inclusion and diversity and will not tolerate conduct that runs counter to those principles,” Maltzman said in the release. “The University concluded that Coach Lonergan had engaged in conduct inconsistent with the university’s values.”

He added that the University will conduct “a broader review” of the athletics department.

Executive Director of Athletics Communications Brian Sereno declined to answer any questions. 

The announcement follows a flurry of reports late Friday night that GW had decided to fire the fifth-year head coach after investigating verbal and emotional abuse allegations published in the Washington Post in July.

Updated: Sept. 17, 2016 at 12:51 a.m.

Men’s basketball head coach Mike Lonergan has been fired, according to USA Today Sports.

A person who spoke to USA Today’s Dan Wolken on the condition of anonymity said GW has not yet announced the firing and that the coaching staff was informed of the decision Friday night.

The decision comes nearly two months after the Washington Post published verbal and emotional abuse allegations against the fifth-year head coach.

According to CBSSports‘ Matt Norlander, the investigation conducted by outside law firm Saul Ewing also uncovered new information and allegations not included in the Post’s story, including the fact that Lonergan referred to Derrick Gordon — the first active openly gay men’s college basketball player — as “the gay kid.” Gordon played for A-10 foe Massachusetts from 2013-2015 before transferring to Seton Hall.

The University did not immediately return the Hatchet’s request for comment.

The Colonials went a combined 97-70 (44-40 A-10) under Lonergan, reaching the NCAA tournament in 2014 and winning a 2016 NIT Championship title last spring.

The Atlantic 10 men’s soccer championship will remain on campus at Davidson’s Alumni Soccer Stadium in Davidson, N.C., the league announced Friday.

The statement comes four days after the NCAA moved to relocate seven previously awarded championship events from North Carolina during the 2016-17 academic year because of “the cumulative actions taken by the state concerning civil rights protections.”

“The A-10 soccer championship is a conference event that rotates amongst member institution campuses and Davidson, which has stood consistent in strong opposition to HB-2, was awarded the site more than a year ago,” A-10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade said in a statement Friday. “The league, with Davidson, has strong opposition to the legislation and clearly supports the rescission of this law.”

“The Atlantic 10 and its members maintain a commitment to the core ideals of diversity and inclusion. Furthermore, Davidson College has publicly stated its position on this issue and is committed to a safe, non-discriminatory campus environment,” McGlade said.

The A-10 added that it fully supports the NCAA in its effort to move neutral site championships awarded to the state through a bid process, and will consider the policy in future championship site decisions.

GW men’s soccer made the A-10 Championship last season for the first time in four years, entering as No. 1 seed and regular-season champions. Ousted in the first round by No. 8 seed VCU, the team was picked to finish fifth in the conference this fall.

The Colonials played nationally-ranked Wake Forest (No. 12) to a scoreless tie on Tuesday to move to 2-1-3 on the season.

Executive Director of Athletics Communications Brian Sereno said GW generally will not comment on A-10 decisions.

“Commissioner McGlade has a difficult job and we support her leadership,” Sereno said.

GW kicks off A-10 play on Oct. 1, hosting Fordham at 2 p.m.  The A-10 Championship is scheduled for Nov. 10-13.

The two-time reigning Atlantic 10 champion women’s basketball team unveiled its non-conference schedule last week, with hopes of making its third straight NCAA tournament appearance this spring.

In head coach Jennifer Rizzotti’s inaugural campaign, the Colonials will face at least eight postseason teams from 2016, including Syracuse — last year’s runner-up to NCAA national champion UConn (38–0).

“We will take on a challenging non-conference schedule this season which features a number of high-quality opponents that made deep runs in the NCAA Tournament and WNIT last season,” Rizzotti, who also helped lead USA women’s basketball to a gold medal this summer in Rio, said in a release. “In order to get to where we strive to be, it is important for us to be challenged every time we step onto the floor.”

GW, which went 267 overall last season, will try to get battle-tested before entering league play by squaring off against at least five power conference teams.

One of the more anticipated clashes at the Smith Center will be a rematch with 2016 NCAA Elite 8 contender Stanford in late December. In the second game of a home-and-home series, the Colonials will seek revenge against the Pac-12 squad one year after the then-No. 15 Cardinal trounced them 8463 on the West Coast.

The Colonials will also play host to a talented Princeton side that made the 2016 NCAA tournament with a 23–6 record. The Nov. 13 meeting will be the first between the two programs since the 2008-2009 season.

GW’s slate also features a pair of local contests at 2016 WNIT participant Georgetown and American.

On the road, women’s basketball faces tough tests against Villanova, whom they defeated 78–70 in the first game of a home-and-home series last year, and perhaps its biggest challenge at the Gulf Coast Showcase in Florida during Thanksgiving break.

In addition to facing top-tier opponents like the Orange and Ohio State/Florida Gulf Coast, Rizzotti thinks the tournament’s format will help the team gear up for postseason A-10 play.

“The Gulf Coast Showcase is going to be an amazing opportunity for this team,” Rizzotti said in a release. “First off, to be able to take on national runner-up Syracuse in the first game will give our players a great benchmark on where we want to be. The Showcase is the same format as the Atlantic 10 Championship with three games in three days, so that is important for this team to get a feel for that accelerated schedule against quality opposition.”

While dates and times have yet to be announced for conference matchups, A-10 pairings were released in July.

St. Bonaventure and Duquesne represented the A-10 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament last year, and will both visit the Smith Center this spring. The Colonials will also visit the Dukes  one of three teams GW will face twice in 2016 (Dayton, George Mason, Duquesne).

What: Women’s Soccer vs. No. 18 Georgetown

Where: Mount Vernon Campus

When: Thursday, September 15 at 3 p.m. 

After suffering their first loss of the year at Liberty last weekend, the Colonials (6–1–0) will look to bounce back against their cross-town rivals, the No. 18 Georgetown Hoyas (6–1–0).

Last year, Georgetown was responsible for one of GW’s five total losses — defeating the visiting Colonials 4–1 last September en route to a 2015 NCAA Tournament bid.

Case for the Colonials:

Head coach Sarah Barnes has repeatedly stressed the paramount role that defense plays in her squad’s success. Thus far this season, the team has rallied around the back four.

Led by redshirt senior Brooke Bean and senior Kate Elson, the Colonials have allowed just four goals in seven games, (0.57 goals per game) despite being outshot by opponents 7167.

Aside from the veteran experience, GW has been boosted by the maturing play of sophomores Megan McCormick and Dani Frese, who have shown great command and composure.

Likewise, redshirt junior goalkeeper Miranda Horn has been in good form and is especially confident coming off her line to challenge attackers. However, while the team has played well as a unit, they got away from that mentality last Sunday against Liberty.

“Defensively, we played more individually and that caused us to chase, which means we didn’t have the ball very much,” Barnes said. “When we did win it, we weren’t consistently composed enough to get the look we wanted and we were too slow in transition.”

The Colonials will certainly be hoping for MacKenzie Cowley to find the net again. After scoring in each of the Colonials’ first six games, Cowley was held scoreless against Liberty.

Junior forward Brittany Cooper could also add an additional boost on offense. Cooper has proved to be a strong and threatening figure on the ball this year, tallying two goals and one assist on the year.

All told, the Colonials are hoping that the Liberty game was a small blemish on what has otherwise been an impressive start to the campaign.

“Georgetown is a very strong team, and we’ll need to be organized,” Barnes said. “We are going to have to read pressure and then transition faster in order to generate possession and generate attack.”

Case for the Hoyas

Following a 3–0 loss at home against now-No. 1 Stanford, the Hoyas have rattled off five consecutive wins, including their most recent victory over a No. 2 ranked Virginia squad. In that time frame, the Hoyas have outscored opponents 174.

What Georgetown lacks defensively, they make up for in offensive firepower. Although the Hoyas have conceded 1.14 goals per game, they have scored an average of 3.29 and have outshot opponents a staggering 10553.

The Colonials will have to contend with the fearsome duo of junior Rachel Corboz and senior Grace Damaska, who have already tallied seven goals apiece for the Hoyas. Corboz has been named Big East Player of the Week three times, and she is fourth in the country (and first in the Big East) with 20 points.

The win against Virginia was particularly inspiring for Georgetown. Already trailing 20 just 10 minutes into the game, the Hoyas exploded for three goals in a span of 24 minutes, playing the Cavaliers to a stalemate for the rest of the game to pick up a huge win.

The Bottom Line

The Hoyas come to the Mount Vernon Campus full of confidence and possessing deadly weapons. However, the Colonials proved in their upset of Arkansas that they don’t need much possession of the ball to still win the game.

Georgetown will control the tempo and get its scoring chances, but if Barnes’ defense is organized and Horn is on her game, the Colonials might only need one opportunity at the net to make the difference.

Through 89 minutes of play against Navy on Sunday afternoon, men’s soccer’s dominant offensive effort had gone unrewarded.

Despite outshooting the Midshipmen 16–0 and spending the majority of the match in its opponent’s defensive third, GW found itself knotted in a scoreless tie.

But with just more than 10 seconds remaining, the Colonials were awarded their 12th corner kick of the day. Sophomore midfielder Alastair Berry wasted no time delivering the ball into a frantic scrum in front of the net.

The hurried set piece found the head of Dylan Lightbourn on the near post, who snuck the game winner past Navy’s goalkeeper to lift GW to a 1–0 victory with only four seconds to spare.

“Coach is always telling me to get near post, and I just saw that ball coming in from Alastair, it was a great cross and I knew I was going to get my head on it,” the sophomore forward said. “The whole day we were getting great service into the box — we just couldn’t finish — but luckily I just found the right spot at the right time.”

The bounceback win comes four days after the Colonials (2–1–2) dropped a 2–0 decision at Loyola (Md.), the team’s first and only loss so far this season.

Head coach Craig Jones was pleased with his squad’s response during Sunday’s matinee.

“Today I thought was our best performance overall over 90 minutes possession-wise. Sometimes you need a little bit of luck — well not so much luck, it was a great header actually,” Jones said. “We’re creating [scoring chances], we just haven’t been scoring, and today we got one.”

And while GW’s offense has not been overtly high-powered — having combined for just three goals over its first four games — its defensive unit has continually kept them in games.

Starting goalkeeper Thor Arne Hofs had a quiet outing as Navy (1–2–1) recorded zero shots on net but was still tabbed for his second shutout of the 2016 campaign.

“Defensively, we shut them down,” Lightbourn said. “Their counterattack, that’s their forte honestly, and we did a really great job of just not allowing them to turn and come at us. We definitely improved from last game.”

GW’s attack, however, caused problems for the Midshipmen’s backs all afternoon.

The Colonials’ best chance of the first half came in the 38th minute from senior midfielder Garrett Heine. On a free kick just outside of the box, Heine fired a bullet to the top-left corner of the net but was denied by an impressive save over the crossbar.

A flurry of chances came late in the second half off a number of good services into Navy’s 18. Junior midfielder Koby Osei-Wusu, senior defender Ben Ogedegbe and freshman midfielder Colin Anderson all came within inches of finding the go-ahead goal.

The one that finally came marked just the second goal of Lightbourn’s collegiate career. On Sunday, the 6-foot-3-inch sophomore played 65 minutes up top.

“Obviously he didn’t see much of the field last year but coming in for preseason he looked good, he worked hard over the summer,” Jones said. “As a forward you’ve got to be at the right place at the right time and he’s done that twice this season so far. I thought today his movement was good, he held the ball up, he was strong — he was just a handful. So he deserved that goal.”

Lightbourn’s game-winner also handed him a new title: leading scorer.

His two goals this season now pace all Colonials, while Heine and junior midfielder Oliver Curry trail close behind with one goal apiece.

“It feels kind of crazy honestly,” Lightbourn said. “I was just hoping to get good playing time this year but to think I’m the leading goal-scorer on a team with so many great players — like Garrett, who was one of the leading scorers in the conference [last season] — it’s just surreal.”

The Colonials will try to pick up their third non-conference win Tuesday when they travel to take on ACC foe Wake Forest at 7 p.m.

Colonials down Delaware, win sixth straight

This post was written by Hatchet staff writer Marty Fenn.

Whenever a team gets a big win over a tough opponent, the hope is that they can keep that momentum rolling into the next game to avoid a letdown.  

The Colonials were able to do just that Thursday evening at home, following their triumph 1-0 over nationally ranked Arkansas with a 3-0 victory over the Delaware Blue Hens.

Though GW (6-0-0) wasn’t at its sharpest, the Colonials’ control of the midfield and their ability to finish quality chances made all the difference.  

Senior forward MacKenzie Cowley scored in her sixth straight game, and became one of just three players in the country to already have four game-winning goals.

Although the Colonials struck first, it was Delaware (1-6-0) who was getting the best chances early in the game.  Luckily for GW, Miranda Horn was in goal.  

Horn, a redshirt junior, was solid throughout the game – making four saves to keep the Blue Hens off the score sheet.  Perhaps her best effort came about 14 minutes into the first half, when she managed to tip the ball over the crossbar on a laser shot from outside the box.

“Those are actually my favorite kind of saves, because I’m a taller keeper and it’s easier for me to get up high,” Horn said.  “I usually try to get my feet behind [the ball] and catch it, but that was a really nice shot, so I just had to get my fingers to it.”

While Horn was keeping the Colonials in the game, Cowley took advantage of a strange opportunity in the 20th minute.

On a Delaware goal kick, redshirt junior midfielder Ivana Szwejkowski raised up to power a header forward.  The ball ran out past everyone, and Cowley was on it in a flash.  She controlled the ball deftly in the box, chipping the ball over the Delaware keeper and giving the Colonials the lead for good.

GW really got things going in the second half, dominating possession and finding space to operate in the midfield.

“I think we had some of those opportunities in the first half and we missed them, but I’m proud that we made that adjustment,” head coach Sarah Barnes said.  “The wide players did a good job of spacing and finding runners, and I think we were just more assertive.”

Sophomore forward Brittany Cooper was particularly dominant in the second half, using her body and strength well to shield off defenders and hold the ball.  Cooper was the catalyst of the second goal in the 62nd minute,  executing a skillful nutmeg turn by the corner flag to evade two Blue Hens defenders before sending a cross to the back post.  

Freshman midfielder Olivia Di Cristofaro sprinted down the wing and towards the post, volleying the ball into the open net for her first career goal.

“It feels great,” Di Cristofaro said about getting her first score.  “I feel like things are working out and the hard work is paying off. I never really scored that much in club, so it’s a great feeling.”

Senior defender Kate Elson put the finishing touch on the game with a goal in the 86th minute, scoring from a near impossible angle by the corner flag.  

The win means the Colonials continue their unbeaten streak, and also continue to generate more national buzz.  Following the Arkansas win, GW received 17 votes in the NSCAA Coaches Poll.

“I think for the team… they put in a tremendous amount of work,” Barnes said.  “Especially for the seniors, they’ve put so much into the program in the last four years.  Those guys came here when we weren’t very good, so for them to be at this point and see us getting recognition, it’s great.”

The Colonials will hit the road to take on Liberty on Sunday in Lynchburg, VA.  Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m.

In 65 days men’s basketball will tip-off to officially start its 2016-17 season.

On Tuesday afternoon the team announced their full schedule, which includes at least 17 nationally televised games, 13 of which are Atlantic 10 matchups.

After the season opener against Maryland Eastern-Shore, GW will host its first two CBE Classic games before heading to Kansas City.

In their first game outside D.C., the Colonials will face a strong Georgia team that fought its way through Southeastern Conference play before losing to eventual No. 4 seed Kentucky in their conference semi-finals.

In either the CBE Classic finals or the third place game, GW will take on Kansas or UAB before returning home. A contest against Kansas would provide possibly the toughest challenge of the season for the Colonials against a Jayhawks team that received the No. 1 overall seed in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

Games in Foggy Bottom that begin a home-and-home agreement with Penn State and end one with South Florida will not likely provide an RPI boost but instead be important practice before the Dec. 4 tip-off against Florida State.

The Colonials first true road game of the season will be against Temple on Dec. 7. Going up against the Owls will be a game to watch after Temple went 14-4 in the American Athletic Conference and reached the NCAA tournament.

GW will then conclude its out-of-conference play Dec. 22 in Miami. The Hurricanes graduated a couple top players but are still expected to come out on top against the Colonials after reaching the sweet 16 last season.

A-10 games on the road against Saint Joseph’s — last year’s conference champion — and at home against Davidson might give an early preview of the Colonials postseason hopes while hosting late-season battles against St. Bonaventure and Dayton give GW fans games to circle on their calendars.

Of the five conference teams that the Colonials play twice in the season, the VCU series may be the most impactful. After splitting their games 1-1 last season, a sweep for either side could form an easier road to a top position in the A-10 tournament.

Here’s the rest of the schedule so you can plan to tune in or head to the Smith Center.
