Mission & Goals Statement of the Department of Athletics

Title IX and NCAA Peer Review

The Georgetown University Department of Athletics, as part of a university with roots in the Jesuit tradition of education, commits itself to the comprehensive development of the student. The interdependence of the physical, emotional, moral and intellectual aspects of personal growth requires simultaneous and balanced focus. This objective does not imply that each facet of an individual’s psychological, social and academic growth is of equal importance. It does require that Georgetown provide the means and encouragement for each person to develop according to his or her own interests and abilities. This is especially true in athletics, whether at the recreational, intercollegiate, intramural or instructional level. In addition to physical development, the Department of Athletics promotes principles of character, development and sportsmanship within the framework of an abiding and broadened commitment to community. Accordingly, the Athletics Department is committed to, fosters and pursues the fair and equitable treatment of both men and women, and the provision of equitable access and opportunities for minority students and institutional personnel.

The Georgetown University Athletics Department has undergone two extensive reviews of its athletic programs: an audit by the Department of Education concerning Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Georgetown’s inaugural review under the NCAA’s new Athletics Certification program. The Department of Education has found Georgetown’s athletic programs to be in compliance with Title IX, and the University was certified by the NCAA in November of 1995 and again in 2001.

NCAA Position on Gambling The NCAA opposes all forms of legal and illegal sports wagering. Sports wagering has the potential to undermine the integrity of sports contests and jeopardizes the welfare of student-athletes and the intercollegiate community. Sports wagering demeans the competition and competitors alike by a message that is contrary to the purposes and meaning of “sport.” Sports competition should be appreciated for the inherent benefits related to participation of student-athletes, coaches and institutions in fair contests, not the amount of money wagered on the outcome of the competition. For these reasons, the NCAA membership has adopted specific rules prohibiting athletics department staff members and student-athletes from engaging in gambling activities as they relate to intercollegiate or professional intercollegiate or professional sporting events.

and applicant pool. Its student body, one of the most geographically diverse in the country, consists of individuals from all 50 states and 132 foreign countries.

Established in 1789 in the spirit of the new republic, the University was founded on the principle that serious and sustained discourse among people of different faiths, cultures, and beliefs promotes intellectual, ethical, and spiritual understanding. We embody this principle in the diversity of our students, faculty, and staff, our commitment to justice and the common good, our intellectual openness, and our international character.

Today more than 14,000 students are enrolled in undergraduates and graduate programs at Georgetown University. Georgetown today is a major student-centered, international, research university offering respected undergraduate, graduate and professional programs in Washington, DC, Doha, Qatar and around the world.

An academic community dedicated to creating and communicating knowledge, Georgetown provides excellent undergraduate, graduate, and professional education in the Jesuit tradition for the glory of God and the well-being of humankind.

700 full-time and 350 part-time professors teach undergraduates on the main campus. Distinguished professors include former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former USAID Administrator Andrew Natsios, best-selling author and commentator Michael Eric Dyson, best-selling author and linguist Deborah Tannen and former National Security Advisor Anthony Lake.

Georgetown educates women and men to be reflective lifelong learners, to be responsible and active participants in civic life, and to live generously in service to others.

In its history, Georgetown has attracted some of the nation’s top students, whose achievements include some of

Blue and gray were adopted as the official school colors in 1866 following the Civil War, to symbolize the reunification of the North and the South. The war had such a profound impact upon the University, which housed the Union Army as it moved south to occupy the surrounding area.

What is a Hoya?

The Georgetown mascot, the Hoya, is derived from the Greek and Latin phrase "Hoya Saxa," which, loosely translated, means "What Rocks!" Some say it originated in a cheer referring to the stones that comprised the school's outer walls; others say it began in the 19th century with the birth of Georgetown's Stonewalls baseball club; a third version has a “hoya saxa” cheer arising after an impressive goal-line stand by the defense of the Hoya football team. The name proved popular and the term “Hoyas” was eventually adopted for all Georgetown teams.

Who is Jack?

Georgetown’s mascot is Jack the Bulldog. The name “Jack” and the breed of English Bulldog was formally adopted in 1962, after a long line of breeds “auditioned” for the position during the first half of the century. Georgetown was one of the first schools to employ a “human mascot.” A familiar blue and grey costumed student appears at all major athletic and social events and is one of the most recognizable college mascots in the nation.

Athletics at Georgetown enjoys a rich history dating back to the first documented athletic contest, a baseball game on May 10, 1870. Georgetown’s tradition includes a total of 17 team and 18 individual national championships, while boasting numerous Olympians, National Players of the Year and All-Americans.

For more than 220 years, Georgetown University has overlooked the banks of the Potomac River. Georgetown owes its existence to Archbishop John Carroll, whose desire for an academy to educate the Catholic youth of the nation that gave root to the founding of Georgetown. Construction began on the first building in 1788, but the first student, William Gaston, arrived from North Carolina in 1791 before it was even completed. Two years later, Charles and George Dinnies, brothers from New York, were awarded the degree of Bachelor of Arts and became the College’s first graduates.

The highlight of the year was the men’s basketball team winning its second-straight BIG EAST Regular Season Championship – a feat accomplished by only four other teams in the league and for the first time since 1994-95 and earning its third-straight bid to the NCAA Tournament.

By 1871, Georgetown had expanded to include two professional schools: medicine and law, and gradually moved towards establishing itself as a university. During this time, the school was guided by the efforts of Patrick F. Healy, S.J., who is often referred to as its second founder. The son of an Irish immigrant and a former slave, Father Healy became the first African-American to

Under the 46th president, John J. DeGioia, Georgetown has renewed a focus on interreligious dialogue and intercultural understanding. In 2006, the university established the Berkley Center for Religion Peace and World Affairs, which explores the intersection of religion with contemporary global challenges. Now, in its third century, Georgetown is poised to continue its dynamic mission of excellence and has gone far to fulfill the vision of founder John Carroll.

The women’s lacrosse team advanced to the championship game of the BIG EAST Tournament and was selected for the NCAA Tournament. The Georgetown sailing team, under the direction of Head Coach Mike Callahan, won its first-ever Fleet Racing National Championship and senior Chris Behm was awarded the Everett B. Morris Trophy, given to the College Sailor of the Year.

The 1980’s were highlighted by intense growth and prosperity through the leadership of its 46th President Timothy S. Healy, S.J. Its academic reputation improved, its endowment increased five-fold, minority enrollment grew and a host of building were constructed including Yates Field House, the Intercultural Center and the Leavey Center.

The track and field program had another strong season. The women’s team finished in second place at the BIG EAST Indoor Championships, while the men’s team

Georgetown University’s commitment to diversity is manifested in its student body -- which includes people of many different ethnic and religious backgrounds -- and in its commitment to the recruitment of outstanding women and minorities to join its community of faculty and staff. Georgetown is an equal opportunity employer, and makes a concerted effort to achieve ethnic and gender diversity throughout its workforce. Georgetown University has long been a leader among America’s most selective institutions in promoting a diverse student body. Nearly 30 percent of Georgetown’s undergraduate population is from a multi-cultural background; the breakdown is as follows: African American, 6.7 percent; Asian American, 8.7 percent; Hispanic, 6.4 percent; and Native American, less than one percent.

Women began to study at Georgetown when the School of Nursing was founded in 1903. Their enrollment increased gradually through the first part of the century and by 1952 was admitted to all schools but the College of Arts and Sciences. At the end of the 1960’s, the University became fully coeducational, as women were admitted to the college.

A major new addition to Georgetown’s campus is the Southwest Quadrangle, a §188.5 million initiative that was the largest construction project in Georgetown history. Part of an ongoing effort to enhance the quality of campus life, the project provided a new 784-bed residence hall, a multi-level underground parking facility, a 1,200-person Leo J. O’Donovan S.J. dining hall, and a new home for Georgetown’s Jesuit Community. Additionally, the Davis Performing Arts Center and the Wagner Alumni House opened in Fall 2005. A new home for the McDonough School of Business is under construction and a new Science Center is now planned. In October of 1988 the Leavey Center was constructed to house the Office of Student Affairs, the University Bookstore, a cafeteria, several restaurants, a hotel and conference center with 150 rooms, and a parking garage. For recreation and relaxation, students and faculty head to Yates Field house, a four level sports complex. Among the features of this facility are 12 multi-purpose courts for tennis, basketball, racquetball, squash, and volleyball; a four-lane, 200-meter indoor jogging track; a dance studio; and an eight-lane swimming pool with separate diving area.

Senior center Roy Hibbert was named a Second-Team Associated Press All-American and was selected in the first round of the 2008 NBA Draft, while classmate Patrick Ewing, Jr. was named the BIG EAST’s Sixth Man of the Year and was a second round NBA pick.

Georgetown currently sponsors more than 100 community service initiatives that involve countless students, faculty, staff and alumni, and range from teaching children to offering pro bono legal services and providing health care for the medically underserved. As a Catholic, Jesuit university, Georgetown undergraduates have historically chosen service careers in high numbers after graduation; in 2003, according to a voluntary survey of graduating seniors, more than 139 chose jobs in the public sector -- non-profit institutions, volunteer service, education, government service, Jesuit Volunteer Corps and other organizations in addition to the Peace Corps. In 2007, Georgetown University produced the fifth highest number of Peace Corps volunteers among all private universities in the country, with 42 Georgetown alumni joining the Peace Corps. In 2008, Teach for America accepted 59 Georgetown graduates to their program, making Teach for America the No. 1 private employer of Georgetown graduates.

REVIEW

In 2005, Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service opened a campus in Doha, Qatar. Building on Georgetown’s tradition of educating future leaders in the international arena, the Qatar campus provides an interdisciplinary liberal arts undergraduate program focused on international affairs. The Office of International Programs at Georgetown University fosters the international character of the University by promoting, supporting and developing a wide range of international and intercultural opportunities for members of the Georgetown community. Through study abroad and internationally focused study, students can increase their awareness of the global community, learn about another country’s culture and history and broaden their language and communication skills.

Undergraduate Programs Georgetown College: While the College has changed much during its 220-year history, it continues to draw on the dynamic tradition of Jesuit education in promoting not only the intellectual disciplines but also the search for personal and social values. The College has maintained its emphasis on the liberal arts, although it has grown and developed consistently by complementing traditional disciplines with courses reflecting today’s world. The student body has increased in recent years to 3,200 students, an enrollment which allows for diversity and yet enables the College to look to the interests of each individual student. Through their research, the faculty makes valuable contributions to scholarship, while continuing to give priority to excellence in teaching and to the development of a community of learning. The College offers flexible curricula that encourage breadth and depth of exploration within the classroom — and without. Washington, D.C. — with its resources such as the Smithsonian Institution, The National Archives and the Library of Congress — and the world beyond become extensions of the classroom through internships and foreign study programs. Its curriculum is designed to enable its graduates to continue redefining their goals and maturing their thoughts throughout their lives. Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service: The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service is the oldest and largest School of International Affairs in the United States. With an enrollment of over 1,400 undergraduate students, the School is the foremost institution of its kind and enjoys a world wide reputation. The School of Foreign Service seeks to motivate and prepare its students for effective performance in international affairs careers. Throughout its history, the scope of “foreign service” has grown dramatically, while the modes of entry into professional employment have also changed in educationally significant ways. Today an increasing number of career fields have major international aspects and both the public and private sectors require personnel with knowledge of international affairs, government, commerce, finance, education, law and journalism. Taking advantage of its location in one of the world’s major diplomatic arenas, the School offers a four-year multi-disciplinary liberal arts program in international

Approximately 50 percent of Georgetown University students decide to participate in academic programs overseas. Students who study overseas return with valuable new perspectives on the world. Graduating seniors consistently list these experiences as one of the five top areas of satisfaction with their Georgetown education. Additionally, international students, researchers, and faculty are an extremely important part of the Georgetown community. Nearly 2,200 individuals, including 300 undergraduates, from more than 120 foreign countries study, conduct research, and teach at Georgetown. International students make up approximately 12 percent of the Georgetown student body. The Office of International Programs provides a variety of support services to international students, researchers, and faculty at Georgetown, including cultural and educational programming, immigration advising and personal counseling.

relations. Enhancing the curriculum are issue and policyoriented seminars taught by faculty from the Washington foreign affairs community as well as resident professors. Further, the international composition of the student body itself lends an immediacy and reality to the study of foreign affairs. The School of Foreign Service welcomes applications from students who wish to devote themselves to the careful study required for future international service and who are eager to test their abilities against the demands and opportunities of a unique educational program. The Robert Emmett McDonough School of Business: The mission of the Robert Emmett McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University has been to integrate liberal arts and professional education. The McDonough School of Business prepares students for positions of responsibility in business, finance and government. As members of an international university in an international city, students participate in the nation’s living history. They balance the academically rigorous curriculum with attendance at concerts, cultural events, symposia and government hearings unique to the nation’s capital. The Bachelor of Science degree provides students with a versatile background, competently preparing them for either immediate employment or for graduate study. More than 60 percent of those graduating from the McDonough School of Business eventually pursue postgraduate work. Graduates have been highly successful in obtaining admission to top-ranked Master’s of Business Administration programs. School of Nursing and Health Studies: Students of the Georgetown School of Nursing and Health Studies have a unique opportunity to secure a broad education in the humanities and sciences while earning degrees. Its programs offer excellence in liberal studies, in addition to a professional education, which is made possible through University offerings. In addition to major, students may select a minor of concentrations and courses through the Georgetown University Medical Center, which allows students an opportunity to participate and to learn within the full range of its health care facilities. The School of Nursing also utilizes health care settings and other appropriate agencies in the metropolitan Washington area for clinical and internships experiences.


Sports in D.C. GEORGETOWN

The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area has it all when it comes to sports — a team from every major league is represented, and in some cases fans are divided among area rivals.

Or if they can’t stand the heat of the summer, D.C. sports fans can head inside to Verizon Center to watch the Washington Mystics of the WNBA compete. An exercise enthusiast’s paradise in the middle of the city, Rock Creek Park contains 1,754 acres of trees and forest, including a nature center, riding stables, tennis courts, a golf course, 30 picnic areas, playing fields and an extensive network of trails for walking, jogging and cycling.

REVIEW

After March Madness, fans are still not in a drought for sports action, as the Washington Nationals and the Baltimore Orioles return from spring training for their opening day celebrations. The Nationals moved into their new home, Nationals Park, at the beginning of the 2008 season, while RFK Stadium will still be used by D.C. United of Major League Soccer. Since the Nationals are a new addition to the D.C. sports scene, many loyal fans still make the short trip to Baltimore to watch the Orioles in Camden Yards.

If a fan prefers the farm system instead, nine minor league baseball teams call the D.C. metropolitan area their home, including Single-A, Double-A and Triple-A affiliates for the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, Nationals and Orioles.

TEAM

When winter comes and Georgetown is on the road, fans can still venture to Verizon Center to see the NBA’s Washington Wizards or the Washington Capitals of the NHL.

STAFF

Since Baltimore and Washington, D.C. are only 30 miles apart, members of the metropolitan area gear up for fall in either purple and black to support the Baltimore Ravens or burgundy and gold to cheer on the hometown Washington Redskins. The Redskins still make FedEx Field in Landover, Md. their home, while the Ravens play less than an hour away at M&T Bank Stadium in the heart of Baltimore.

In 2002-2003, Dr. DeGioia oversaw the largest expansion of

campus facilities, with the Southwest Quadrangle - a one million square-foot complex of student housing; study, seminar and music rooms; and a new Jesuit Community - at the forefront. Dr. DeGioia addresses broader issues in higher education as a board member of the American Council on Education, the Association of American Colleges and Universities, and the Campus Compact, and as an executive committee member of the Council on Competitiveness. He is chair of the Consortium on Financing Higher Education and serves on the Business-Higher Education Forum.

Brian Wiese GEORGETOWN

Head Coach third Season The 2008 season marks the third campaign on the Hilltop for head coach Brian Wiese. Wiese will oversee a Hoya team that finished the 2007 regular season winning four of its last six games to qualify for the BIG EAST Tournament. Following his first season in 2006, Wiese and his staff brought in one of the biggest recruiting classes in school history as the Hoyas welcomed 11 newcomers to the program.

TEAM

STAFF

Wiese earned his first collegiate head coaching job at Georgetown in March 2006 after a successful stint as the associate head coach at the University of Notre Dame. From 1996-2005, Wiese worked under nationally-recognized coach Bobby Clark for five seasons at Stanford University and then for five years at Notre Dame. In those 10 seasons, the teams posted a combined record of 136-48-25, advanced to nine-straight NCAA Tournaments and made one trip to the championship match. Wiese has worked with 11 All-Americans and eight Academic All-America selections during his career and four players who were candidates for the Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy, recognizing the Division I national player of the year. Wiese joined Notre Dame as an assistant in 2001 and was promoted to associate head coach in 2005. During his time with the Irish, he helped guide the team to five NCAA Tournament appearances (reaching the Sweet 16 in 2003 and 2005), to the 2003 BIG EAST Tournament title and the 2004 BIG EAST regular season title. He was named to CollegeSoccerNews.com’s Top Assistant Coaches List in 2001 and was part of the BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year on two occasions (2001 and 2003). Prior to his stint at Notre Dame, Wiese spent five years (1996-2001) as an assistant coach at Stanford University. The Cardinal posted a 71-21-12 record during that time and made four NCAA Tournament appearances. The team posted a 10-4-4 record in 1996, its first winning season in four years, were ranked second in the country in 1997 when they went 13-5-2 and finished the 1998 season No. 2 in the country after reaching the NCAA title game and finishing 18-5-2. In 2000, Stanford was ranked No. 1 in the country during the season, finished 18-3-1 overall and advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament. That year, the Cardinal posted a 0.44 goals-against average, the best in the country, and were second in the country with 68 goals scored.

REVIEW

During his time at Stanford, Wiese earned a master’s of science degree in product design (mechanical engineering) in 1998. A 1995 graduate of Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, Wiese earned a bachelor of arts in mechanical engineering. A goalkeeper, he was a three-time All-Ivy League selection, two-time Academic All-Ivy League honoree, was named the team’s most valuable player in 1993 and captained the team as a senior. Wiese played professionally briefly for the Bulawayo Highlanders in Zimbabwe. He began his coaching career in 1995, serving as the head coach of the Upper Valley Lightning boys U-15 club team in New Hampshire. Following that, he moved out west, taking over as the head coach of the Del Mar (San Diego) Tsunami girls U-17 club team from 1995-96.

GEORGETOWN

2008 Preview The 2008 Georgetown University men’s soccer team will look to build on the momentum it gained near the end of the 2007 season. With a roster consisting of 16 freshmen and sophomores, the Hoyas closed the 2007 regular season, winning four of the last six games to qualify for the BIG EAST Tournament after a one-year hiatus in 2006.

STAFF

In 2008, third-year head coach Brian Wiese returns 10 starters from an established late season lineup including all of their scoring output, the entire fullback corps and a goalkeeper. A total of 19 letterwinners return and Georgetown’s coaching staff will welcome four highlytouted freshmen.

Madison has a natural goal scoring instinct that might serve him well as a forward in the future but will likely have to use his play-making talents in the midfield early on in his Georgetown career. He came through the Georgetown Elite Camp, so he has experience with the Hoya system.

Despite starting at least six freshmen over the final seven games of the season, the Blue & Gray netted nine goals during the stretch to reach the BIG EAST Tournament.

DEFENDERS The back line of defenders is young but experienced and anchors what is probably the team’s deepest position.

FORWARDS

TEAM

Georgetown loses just one forward in last season’s cocaptain Mike Glaccum but returns a host of upperclassmen and 100 percent of its point production from the 2007 season. Seniors, co-captain Sean Bellomy and Peter Grasso, lead an experienced group that also includes junior Justin Kondos and sophomores Jose Colchao, Chandler Diggs and Tom St. George. The Hoyas will also welcome newcomer Uche Onyeador into the fold to compete for minutes.

REVIEW

Diggs led the team with nine points last season (3 G, 3 A) while posting a goal and an assist against BIG EAST opponents. He also recorded a four-game point-scoring streak in mid-October. Bellomy ranked second on the squad with a total of eight points and netted both of the Hoya goals against Pittsburgh. He also dished out assists in wins over Marshall and at Marquette.

records

Prior to the BIG EAST Tournament, the Blue and Gray defense yielded just 18 goals, a goals-against-average of 0.98. It marked the program’s second fewest goals allowed since the inception of BIG EAST play. GU allowed 15 goals over 20 games during the 1988 season. Senior Richard Diaz returns for a fifth season after missing games in 2006 and 2007 with knee injuries. Juniors Len Coleman and co-captain Mark Zeman return this season alongside sophomores Mostafa Ebrahimnejad, Ibu Otegbeye, Ben Slingerland and Alex Verdi. The Hoyas also welcome freshman Brandon Pfluger into the center of the defense after he joined the team last spring. Diaz returns after battling knee injuries over his career. Despite playing in just five games last season, he earned the team’s Ricardo Mendoza Coaches Award for his spirit and determination.

Onyeador, a local product from Potomac Falls, set the state of Virginia’s high school scoring mark with 127 goals and should help boost the Hoyas’ goal production in 2008.

MIDFIELDERS

Pangraze and Verdi split time at the center back position. Pangraze started in 11 of the 14 games he appeared in playing with poise and maturity. Verdi started in the team’s final seven games and earned the team’s Most Improved Player Award.

Joslin started in four of the 10 games he played in and is a speedy wing player who adds bite to the midfield unit.

Otegbeye used his fiery and energetic style to earn time at right back in 14 games. Otegbeye, who dished out two assists, became known for making aggressive overlapping runs that led to dangerous service into the penalty area.

Zeller started in all but one game at center midfield last season, scoring both of Georgetown’s goals in its win over Providence.

Pfluger has the potential to become one of the best defenders in the league and gives Georgetown another physical presence in the back line.

Larrabee has started in 23-consecutive games dating back to 2006 and contributed two goals and an assist last year including the game-winner at Louisville.

Georgetown Men’s Soccer

A trio of young goalkeepers gives Georgetown several great options for the 2008 campaign. Sophomore Matthew Brutto is the only returning goalkeeper with game experience. Brutto started in nine games last season including seven BIG EAST regular season games and the BIG EAST Tournament match at South Florida. Brutto posted a 5-4 record with three shutouts against Louisville, Providence and Pittsburgh. Mark Wilber red-shirted last season but had a terrific spring season and will push Brutto for minutes. Freshman Erik Garciamendez is another prospect who attended the Georgetown Elite Camp and stood out among a talented group of goalkeepers. An agile shot stopper with great feet, Garciamendez will provide the Hoyas with more depth at the goaltending position. High expectations surrounding the Hoyas in 2008 and a rigorous schedule will be sure to test the squad throughout the year. Georgetown has a healthy mix of young and experienced talent that has its sights set on the program’s first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 1997.

Ebrahimnejad and Zeman became constants at fullback. Zeman is a tough competitor who can use both feet effectively while Ebrahimnejad was as good as advertised coming out of high school. Ebrahimnejad started in every game as a freshman and showed he has a lethal left foot.

In the midfield, Coach Wiese has the luxury of looking to the experience of seniors Hunter Joslin and Corey Zeller to lead the unit along with junior Scott Larrabee. Young but experienced sophomores Robert Burnett and Seth C’deBaca will look to keep a hold of their starting roles while helping newcomer David Madison acclimate into the team.

10

GOALKEEPERS

Coleman earned All-BIG EAST Third Team honors in 2007. He started in 18 games and used his physical and vocal style to make a name for himself league-wide.

Grasso has started in almost half of the 43 games he has appeared in during his career.

tradition

Burnett and C’deBaca both had terrific freshman seasons. Burnett earned the Team MVP award, as voted on by his teammates, after starting in all 19 games and is already emerging as one of the best holding midfielders in the league. C’deBaca cracked the starting lineup in midOctober and totaled seven starts. He recorded an assist on the game-winning goal at Seton Hall while becoming one of the Hoyas most dangerous and unpredictable players.

REVIEW

TEAM

STAFF

Despite the Hoya roster consisting of 16 freshmen and sophomores, Georgetown closed the 2007 regular season winning four of its last six games to qualify for the BIG EAST Tournament after missing the league tournament the previous season. The Hoyas started at least six freshmen over the final seven games of the season yet the Blue and Gray netted nine goals during the stretch to overcome the rocky start and qualify for the BIG EAST Tournament. Senior co-captains Joe Devine and Mike Glaccum led the team with great leadership on and off the field while the major postseason awards went to Alex Verdi (Most Improved), Robert Burnett (Most Valuable) and Richard Diaz (Ricardo Mendoza Coaches Award - for the player who best exemplifies the spirit of Georgetown soccer.) Georgetown played the season’s first seven games on the road and the Hoyas went through a bit of a scoring drought early on. The Blue & Gray were held scoreless in six of its first nine games and they lost five games by a score of 1-0. GU dropped the season-opener, 3-0, to No. 23 UNCGreensboro. The Spartans saw all three of their goals come over a 12-minute stretch in the second half. Georgetown evened its record with a 1-0 win over Marshall in the Hoyas’ second game at the JMU-hosted tournament. Freshman Chandler Diggs netted the gamewinner in the 77th minute with a header after taking assists from Sean Bellomy and Seth C’deBaca. Senior Joe Devine earned the shutout after making two saves including a full-length dive with 14 minutes left in regulation. The Hoyas then hit their toughest stretch of the season, a four-game losing streak that saw Georgetown score just one goal over the stretch. All four losses were decided by one goal. GU fell 1-0 to Tulsa and 1-0 at No. 8 Southern Methodist in the SMU/Mi Cocina Tournament.

tradition

After returning home from Dallas, the Blue & Gray lost 1-0 in overtime at No. 4 UConn in the BIG EAST opener in front of a loud and boisterous crowd in Storrs. Devine played arguably the best game of his career, making a total of five saves, some in acrobatic fashion. Georgetown closed out its long road trip with a weekend visit at Cinicinnati and at Louisville. Cincinnati got a goal in the third minute of action and then the Bearcats tallied again, just four minutes into the second half, for a 2-0 lead. Corey Zeller scored the Hoyas’ lone goal on a penalty kick on the 88th minute but it was too little, too late. The Blue & Gray upped its record to 2-5 overall and 1-2 in BIG EAST action with a 1-0 win at Louisville. Matthew

Brutto earned a shutout in his first collegiate start to lead six freshmen in the starting lineup. In the 25th minute, Scott Larrabee struck from near the back post after Hunter Joslin played a ball to Ibu Otegbeye, who served a ball from the corner. Following two hard-fought 1-0 decisions to Rutgers and Villanova to start a four-game home stand, Georgetown improved to 3-7, 2-4 in league action with a 2-0 win over Providence. Corey Zeller tallied both of the team’s goals, one off a Scott Larrabee corner in the 75th minute and then moments later on a penalty kick. Following a disappointing 2-0 loss to crosstown rival George Washington, the Hoyas fell in heartbreaking fashion in a 1-0 overtime thriller at No. 19 West Virginia. The Mountaineers scored the game-winner with just nine seconds to go in the first OT session. It marked the sixth 1-0 loss for the Hoyas. The Blue & Gray rebounded by winning four of their next five games. The Hoyas tripped up local rival, American University, 2-1, in overtime. C’deBaca crossed a ball from the right wing to the far post that Diggs headed home for the win. Georgetown then flew to Milwaukee and topped Marquette, 2-1, for GU’s first two-game win streak of the season. Diggs netted his third game of the season just before halftime. Although Marquette tied the game at 1-1 just 29 seconds into the second half, the Hoyas kept the pressure on and scored the game-winner in the 69th minute. Larrabee sent a corner kick toward the box that was misplayed by the Marquette defenseman. Georgetown took some momentum into a meeting against highly-touted Maryland. The Terps took a 2-0 lead after 55 minutes of action but a perfectly executed give-and-go sliced the Hoya deficit to 2-1 when Diggs assisted Bellomy for his first goal of the year. The Hoyas then returned to North Kehoe Field to face Pittsburgh. Georgetown clinched a spot in the BIG EAST Tournament with a well-played 2-0 win over the Panthers. Bellomy notched the first two-goal game of this career while Diggs increased his consecutive game point-streak to four games. Both Hoya goals came after

the 79th minute. Matthew Brutto compiled his third shutout in seven career starts. Four days later, Georgetown rallied for a 2-1 win at Seton Hall to even the Blue and Gray’s league record at 5-5. Seton Hall struck early in the 19th minute but the Hoyas responded almost immediately when freshman Alex Verdi recorded his first career goal seven minutes later with a one-time blast. Fifteen minutes into the second half, Georgetown tallied the eventual game-winner as C’deBaca hit a long, neat pass down the middle of the field where Connor Neusel tickled the net with his third career GU goal. After winning four of five games, the Hoyas closed the regular-season with a home game vs. No. 9 Notre Dame. The Irish outshot GU, 11-0, in the first half but just two of those shots were on goal. Georgetown recorded all nine of their shots after intermission. The Hoyas really pressured Notre Dame, especially in the overtime sessions and Joe Devine posted his fifth career shutout in his final home game. Georgetown earned the No. 5 seed in the BIG EAST Blue Division and had to travel to No. 4 seed South Florida in the BIG EAST Tournament Quarterfinal. In the postseason the Bulls got a goal in the 39th minute, scoring first after a scramble for the ball took place following a cross from the right. The Bulls made it 2-0 with a goal 12 minutes into the second half before USF netted two goals in the final five minutes.

The BIG EAST Conference The 2008-09 academic year will be the 30th for The BIG EAST Conference. While the league has gone through membership changes since its birth, it has never been stronger. This academic year will mark the conference’s fourth year as the nation’s largest Division I-A conference.

STAFF

The goals of the BIG EAST have never changed. The league aims and expects to compete at the highest level and does so with integrity and sportsmanship. The student-athletes of the member schools continue to maintain the league’s proud tradition of success. BIG EAST teams earned their share of recognition at the highest levels in 2007-08. Four women’s teams advanced to their respective NCAA Final Fours: Connecticut field hockey and women’s basketball, Notre Dame soccer and Syracuse lacrosse.

In men’s basketball, the BIG EAST tied its own record set in 2006 by earning eight NCAA Championship bids. BIG EAST women’s teams have received eight NCAA invitations in each of the past two years. The combined 16 men’s and women’s berths in 2008 was an NCAA first. The quality of BIG EAST football has never been more balanced. Six of the league’s eight squads were nationally ranked in 2007. For the third straight year, the BIG EAST representative in the Bowl Championship Series won its BCS bowl game. The BIG EAST continued to produce student-athletes who were at the forefront of athletic and academic achievement. Nineteen BIG EAST players were chosen to their respective ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Teams, including eight first-team selections. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A group in 2005-06 when five new members began competing. The new schools were: University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida.

Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 25 national championships in six different sports and 125 student-athletes have won individual national titles. The BIG EAST has always been able to boast that some of its best students are also some of its best athletes. More than 370 student-athletes have earned academic all-America honors. Last year in football, Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm, who finished his career as the BIG EAST’s career passing leader, was one of the league’s eight first-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America team picks. Also, Connecticut’s Rebecca Lobo, one of the most heralded women’s basketball players in the history of the sport, was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Hall of Fame in 2008. Lobo, a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year, led the Huskies to the 1995 NCAA national championship. The BIG EAST has enjoyed tremendous basketball success, especially in this decade. In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. In men’s basketball, BIG EAST squads have won three of the last 10 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken five of the last nine NCAA titles. Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns challenges into opportunities to become stronger. In the spring of 2001, the BIG EAST added women’s lacrosse and rowing to its growing list of sports. The first women’s golf championship was held in the spring of 2003. In 2007, the league conducted its first women’s lacrosse championship tournament. In 2009-10, the BIG EAST will begin sponsorship of men’s lacrosse, its 24th sport.

2008

The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse Universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original seven school alliance. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably shows a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization needs outstanding leadership. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Dave Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his first year, he administered the formation of The BIG EAST Football Conference. For 2009-10, the BIG EAST will undergo one significant change. Tranghese has announced that he will step down from his position on June 30, 2009. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST student athletes. The conference has enjoyed long-standing relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. While BIG EAST basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden, attendance figures also are significant in soccer, women’s basketball and baseball games. More than 550 BIG EAST student-athletes have earned all America recognition and dozens have won individual NCAA national championships. The BIG EAST has been well represented in U.S. or foreign national and Olympic teams. Several athletes earned gold medals in each of the last six summer Olympiads. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 athletes.
