Sports in Brief

Three win weekly awards

A trio of GW athletes earned weekly awards from the Atlantic 10 this week, with women’s tennis player Mimi Hamling being named the conference’s Co-Player and Co-Rookie of the Week and women’s water polo’s Allison Peotter and Charlotte Schou being named Player of the Week and Defensive Player of the week, respectively.

Hamling, who shared both honors with Julia Comas of Massachusetts, beat Temple’s Anastasia Rukavyshnykova 7-6 (7-5), 2-6, 4-3 (40-15) during a long and heated home No. 2 singles match Saturday afternoon. She and sophomore Zoe Krohn also won their No. 1 doubles match 8-3, though GW dropped the meet by a 4-3 overall score.

Peotter, a sophomore who leads the Colonials in assists and steals, scored three second-half goals to help the women’s water polo team force overtime against Maryland in an eventual 5-4 defeat last Wednesday. She also recorded three steals and won four swim-offs. Schou, a junior goalkeeper who won the same award March 30, registered nine saves and two steals in the loss to the Terrapins.

Softball’s skid continues

GW’s softball team continued its skid Wednesday, losing twice at Maryland by identical 8-0 scores in six and five innings, respectively.

The Colonials managed five baserunners in the first game of the doubleheader, with junior Katie Terrazas and freshman Sandi Moynihan each collecting a hit and senior Amanda Holst, sophomore Lauren Wilson and freshman Julie Orlandi each walking once. Terrazas got GW’s lone hit in the second game, while Orlandi, sophomore Jordyn O’Donnell and freshman Tara Fogarty each walked. GW has now been shut out in each of its last seven games. The Colonials will host Mount St. Mary’s in a doubleheader Thursday at Mount Vernon Field, with games beginning at 3 and 5 p.m. GW will also play two games at St. Bonaventure Saturday.
