The Latest

First Place at Duke

We are excited to share that all 3 GW teams have had a fantastic weekend.  GW’s A Team took 1st place at the Tobacco Road Invitational at Duke, and both the B and C Teams finished with winning records at University of Pennsylvania’s Quaker Classic!

After four rounds of great competition, our A team finished as the only team at the tournament with an undefeated record of 7 wins. Our B team had a stellar record of 6 wins and our C team made a proud finish with 5.5 wins. An additional congratulations to Alex Simone for her individual attorney award at Duke, and to Nadia Creve Coeur for her outstanding witness award at UPenn!

We’d also like to take a moment to recognize the unsung heroes of this weekend that we don’t acknowledge nearly enough, our coaches and graduates. Although we are a student-run program, the comments and advice we receive from them is truly invaluable.  A huge thank you to the coaches Jeremy Carter, Anneliese Mahoney, and Kyle West, along with graduates Molly Hogan and Izabella Babchinetskaya for helping us prepare for this weekend!
