Georgetown Announces 2011 Fall Schedule

WASHINGTON -- The Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad has announced its 2011 fall schedule. The Hoyas will play on five dates with three all-day events. The Blue & Gray will be without seven seniors from last season, but return a solid group including the new freshmen for the fall games.

The Hoyas will start the fall with the banquet and alumni game on September 17. The game will be held at 1:00 p.m., with the banquet at 6:30 p.m., at the Key Bridge Marriott. Alums, parents or fans looking to buy tickets to the banquet should contact Georgetown Associate Head Coach Erin Hellmold.

The following weekend, the Blue & Gray will host the United State Naval Academy at Multi-Sport Field at noon. Navy went 15-6 last season and earned an NCAA Tournament bid.

On Saturday, October 1, the Hoyas will be at Johns Hopkins University for three separate games. GU will begin with the Blue Jays at 10:00 a.m., and play Virginia Tech University at 1:00 p.m., followed by Rutgers University at 3:00 p.m. Georgetown defeated Johns Hopkins and Rutgers last season and did not face the Hokies who were 10-8 a year ago.

The Hoyas will participate in the Second Annual Play for Parkinson's Lacrosse Series on October 16. The event will be held by the ProjectSpark Foundation, an Arlington, Va.-based organization focused on raising funds to battle Parkinson's disease. Games will be played at Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Va., and will feature 12 of the country's most prominent NCAA men's and women's programs including the 2011 Division I National Champions on both the men's and women's sides.

Georgetown will face Stanford University at 10:00 a.m., Penn State University at 11:00 a.m., and Duke University at 2:00 p.m. GU fell to Duke last season at home. Stanford went 16-3 with an NCAA Tournament berth, while Penn State was 10-8.

On Friday, October 1, the Hoyas will travel to the University of Maryland to face the Terrapins at 7:00 p.m. Maryland was 21-2 last year falling to Northwestern in the national championship.

GU will close out the fall at home hosting its annual tournament on October 29. The Blue & Gray will play Maryland at 9:00 a.m., Lehigh University at 11:00 a.m., and James Madison University at 2:00 p.m. The Mountain Hawks were 10-7 in the spring, while JMU went 15-4 with an NCAA Tournament berth.

Georgetown finished the season with a record of 9-8 after winning the Big East Regular Season Championship for the fourth-consecutive year. The Hoyas lose seven seniors, including five starters, next season but return three of their top four scorers.
