| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Hello GW volleyball families, friends, and fans!

Thanks for reading blog #3! The summer has absolutely flown by. I can't believe how quickly I've completed my internship, I've made trips to visit family, and now I'm preparing to head back to DC for preseason in just a few short weeks.

Former George Washington women's basketball standout Tara Booker ('13) recently completed her first professional season overseas with a pair of teams in Luxembourg and Australia.

After finishing up her master's degree at GW, Booker joined Telstar Hesperange, a top team in Luxembourg's second division, in January. She was brought in for the playoffs, where the top teams from Division 2 play the bottom teams from Division 1 for a chance to move up.

ESPN senior writer Andy Katz devoted the final third of his daily 3-Point Shot segment on July 15 to GW men's basketball, highlighting an impact freshman and the strength of the Colonials' non-conference schedule in 2014-15.

Jump to the 1:10 mark in the video below to hear Katz's offseason take on the Colonials.

On Sunday July 13, Coach Mike Lonergan joined Vin Parise on NBC Sports Radio's Anita Marks Show to discuss the Colonials and the July recruiting period. Listen to that segment by clicking here.

Hello GW Volleyball fans, friends and family! 

I hope you all had a wonderful fourth of July! The past 10 days I have been at home and it was extremely relaxing! I was able to spend a lot of time with friends and family. Most of the time spent was just hangout by the pool or lake and spending quality time with my siblings (I have a lot!). On the fourth, we made a slip and slide down the hill near my house, it was 200ft long and such a blast! We spend the whole weekend on the lake.

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.
