georgetownWashington, DC — Entering its fourth season, Georgetown looks to improve on its last season’s final ranking of 29th in the country.  The team is happy to return its top seven players, including seniors Frank Hamilton and Michael-Henry Elghanian-Krayem, who will captain the squad.

The team has already circled its matches against Stanford and Wesleyan on its schedule.  The squad believes that these matches will serve as a indicator of how their season will progress.  Last season, both of these matches went down to the wire.

The Hoyas are also looking to expand their schedule.  The team played a fair number of matches last year; however, Georgetown believes that more matches in January and February will only improve their chances going into the 2010 National Team Championships.
