WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University's women's lacrosse team closed out its fall season on Saturday at the Georgetown tournament at Cooper Field. After 11 fall contests, Head Coach Ricky Fried and his staff have had the opportunity to see what the 2017 squad will look like. This includes the addition of eight newcomers for the Blue & Gray this upcoming season.
"This group has done very well picking up the speed of the game and competing every day," said Fried. "We are looking forward to watching them grow this year, and contributing to our success this spring."
