OPENING DRAW: The George Washington Lacrosse team continues conference play on Thursday when they head to Fairfax, Virginia to take on Revolutionary Rival George Mason at 6 p.m., before returning home to host VCU on Saturday at 1 p.m. for Senior Day at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.

SENIOR SALUTE: Prior to Saturday’s contest the Colonials will honor seniors Shea Cassidy, Natalie Maher, Erin Long, Cassidy Shollenberger, Bailey Forcier, Michaela Lynch, and Delaney Norris, and graduate student Becca Taub in a Senior Day ceremony.

LAST TIME OUT: Jocelyn Donohue scored twice to lead the Colonials, including an unassisted goal just 15 seconds into the game, but GW dropped a 17-6 decision to Richmond on Friday. On Sunday, the Colonials traveled to Philadelphia to take on the La Salle Explorers. In a close offensive battle, GW held a one goal lead going into the second half, but eventually fell to La Salle, 13-11.

ON THE MARK: Jocelyn Donohue paces GW with 28 goals, a mark that ranks seventh in the conference, and has surpassed her career-high of 22 goals from last season. The Amherst, New Hampshire native has ten multi-goal games including two four-goal games. In addition, the junior attacker's 4.11 shots on goal per game ranks second on the GW all-time individual season record list.

SCOUTING GEORGE MASON: The Patriots (8-4, 4-0) rolled to its best start in conference action with a 19-8 victory over VCU on Sunday. Senior Melissa Lobaccaro tied a career high with five goals and junior Hannah Warpinski became the program’s single-season leader in draw controls. Sunday’s win marked the Patriots’ first 4-0 start in Atlantic 10 play, and best conference start in their 20-year program history.

#REVRIVALRY: GW and George Mason renew the Revolutionary Rivalry on Thursday evening. The Colonials hold a commanding 11-3 lead in the year-long competition between the teams that culminates in awarding of the Tri-Corner Hat Trophy.

SCOUTING VCU: The Rams (5-7, 1-3) scored two goals just before halftime to cut the deficit to just 7-5 at the break, but George Mason was able to outscore VCU 12-3 in the second half to take the 19-8 decision. The Rams head to Saint Joseph’s on Thursday before traveling to Foggy Bottom to take on the Colonials on Saturday.

SERIES HISTORY: In their first-ever meeting last season, the Colonials downed the Rams, 20-12. Forcier tallied a game-high eight points on three goals and five assists, while Michaela Lynch registered a career-high six points (4g, 2a). In all, nine different Colonials found the back of the net, with six scoring multiple goals.

LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials will hit the road to face Massachusetts on Friday, April 21 at 2:30 pm before hosting Duquesne on Sunday, April 23 at 1 p.m. at the GW Lacrosse Field.
