In an attempt to have more positive news about our athletic department on here, the women's lacrosse team is on a five game winning streak, having just beaten Presbyterian 15-9. They are currently 5-2.
Our women's lacrosse team is having arguably their best season ever. They finished the regular season 12-4 overall (ties program record for wins) and 7-2 in the A10 (new program record for conference wins).

"FAIRFAX, Va. – George Mason University women's lacrosse head coach Jessy Morgan has announced the program's 2020 schedule, which includes games against three 2019 NCAA Tournament teams and a marquee home contest with defending national champion Maryland.
The Patriots will host eight contests at George Mason Stadium and hit the West Coast for a two-game California swing in February.
In all, Mason's non-conference opponents combined to post an 85-61 record (.582) last season.
'We have put together another challenging schedule this year,' Morgan said. 'I believe that the strength of our non-conference schedule prepared us for the challenges of the A-10 last season. My hope is to continue to build on that progress. We still have a huge hurdle to get over but this year, but we have a wealth of experience and we couldn't be more excited for the season to start.'
Mason opens the season with three-straight home contests, beginning with the contest against the Terrapins on Saturday, February 8. Maryland went 22-1 last season en route to the program's 15th national championship in May."
