Oct. 24, 2004
DAYTON, OH - The University of Dayton (16-1-0, 9-0-0 A-10) clinched a first place regular season finish in the Atlantic 10 Conference on its Senior Day, Sunday afternoon, with a 3-0 defeat over George Washington University (5-7-5, 3-3-3 A-10) in front of 868 people at Baujan Field.

The Flyers added an insurance goal in the 80th minute when freshman Courtney Sirmans knocked in a deflected shot off a corner kick to give Dayton a 3-0 lead.
The shutout was the Flyers 11th for the season and seventh against conference opponents, both tops in the A-10.
