The George Washington University: Blogs

Hello Everyone!

We are done with June and into July which means another month closer to getting back on the court with my teammates in August. As the day to the first practice of preseason approaches, I've been finding different ways to spend my time at home the best way I can with friends and family. I've officially started playing in two indoor volleyball leagues with former high school and club teammates, some of which now play collegiate volleyball as well. So far we have been very successful against our competition and look to continue for the rest of the summer.

Just a few months removed from winning her second Olympic medal, GW Softball alumna Elana Meyers Taylor ('07) was the keynote speaker at the commencement ceremonies for Georgia State University and DeVry University.

"Being Asked to deliver a commencement speech is a huge honor," said Meyers Taylor. "I have the privilege of congratulating people who have completed a huge goal. It's an honor to be able to speak to them about what I've experienced and wish them well and also see their excitement as they start the next phase of their lives."

Hi GW volleyball fans, friends and family!

This summer has been absolutely beautiful in DC and I can't believe we're already about through the first summer session!

Jordan and I have been keeping up with workouts, going to open gyms throughout the DC area, and even running around the monuments. Preseason is only about a month away and we're very excited!

On hot summer days in Foggy Bottom, the GW women's basketball staff has found ways to stay cool by participating in the #Chillin4Charity Cold Water Challenge, a fundraising effort to support the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

Head Coach Jonathan Tsipis and his staff - assistant coaches Diane Richardson and Bill Ferrara and director of basketball operations Erica Williamson - were all challenged by their peers in the coaching ranks. Before buckets of ice water were dumped over their heads, each coach challenged another group of colleagues from across the country.

Hello again to all the GW family, friends and fans,

Starting today I want to include a quote with each of my blog posts. Each time I want to find a quote and then we can think about it as we go throughout our week! I love quotes and I find them very motivational.

GW men's basketball Head Coach Mike Lonergan joined several DMV area coaches for a leadership panel at the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington's (CCADW) annual staff retreat on Tuesday afternoon.

Coach Lonergan was joined by Georgetown men's and women's basketball coaches John Thompson III and Natasha Adair, Maryland football head coach Randy Edsall and Washington Capitals play-by-play announcer Joe Beninati, who served as moderator, to discuss how they build teamwork and culture and teach students in front of several hundred CCADW staff members.  The event took place on the campus of Catholic University, Coach Lonergan's alma mater and the school he coached for 12 seasons and led to an NCAA Division III Championship in 2001.

"It was nice to get back on campus at Catholic University and an honor to serve on the panel with such a terrific group of coaches," said Coach Lonergan, who discussed his role in building foundations for his programs by surrounding himself with great people - from coaching staff and managers to support staff - and choosing student-athletes with high character and tremendous work ethic.

"It was a rewarding experience, especially being at my alma mater, to be able to give back to a local group that does so much for the Washington, D.C., community," added Coach Lonergan.

The five panelists wore red ribbons to honor the memory of Jamie Roberts, a CUA staff member and assistant coach who passed away unexpectedly on Friday, June 13.

Another #OnlyAtGW Moment with @GW_Volleyball

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The GW Volleyball team has grown accustomed to taking advantage of living and studying in Washington, D.C., along the way creating #OnlyAtGW memories. 

Last month the Colonials participated in a team-wide neighborhood race. In the past they have toured the United States Capitol and have participated in the World War II Honor Flight.

The latest #OnlyAtGW moment is the culmination of a year-long video project that was inspired by a viral video that strings together video selfies at various locations. 

GW's effort results in a whirlwind tour around Washington, D.C., and the Foggy Bottom campus.

Hi everyone!

I'm back for my second post and after a about a month back home in the Big Apple, I have a lot to share with you all!
