Women’s lacrosse: Ten different players scored goals as George Mason’s women’s lacrosse team out-shot American University en route to a convincing 13-8 victory over the host Eagles Monday afternoon in nonconference play. Mason won its second consecutive game and closed its regular season with a 7-9 mark. The team returns to action this weekend in the semifinals of the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. The Patriots are the third seed and will face second-seeded Towson University on Saturday, April 30, at 2:30 p.m. on the campus of Hofstra University.
Baseball: Senior biology major Chris Looze’s two-run, bases-loaded, fifth-inning double tied the game, and senior Adam Innerst, a finance major, hit a grand slam two batters later to give George Mason a lead it didn’t relinquish as the Patriots defeated Georgetown, 15-10, on Tuesday. Yesterday, the Patriots traveled to Mount St. Mary’s College to face the Mountaineers again after a 2-1 win last week in a five-inning game shortened because of rain. The Patriots took yesterday’s game decisively, 27-12, and improve to 25-13 overall. The team next faces Towson University for a three-game series beginning tomorrow.
Men’s basketball: George Mason junior guard Lamar Butler, a communication major, was named an honorable mention selection to the 2004-05 University Division Virginia All-State Men’s Basketball Team last week in voting conducted by members of the Virginia Sports Information Directors association.
Women’s rowing: The George Mason women’s rowing team participated in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship (Kerr Cup) this past weekend, rowing two boats, a varsity 8 and second varsity 8, in Philadelphia, Pa. The varsity 8 rowed their boat to a third place finish with a time of 7:02.7. Up next for women’s rowing is the Bucknell Invitational in Shamokin Dam, Pa., on Saturday.
