Lightweight crew prepares for Eastern Sprints
Georgetown’s lightweight crew team has spent its entire season preparing for one thing: Eastern Sprints.

Up in Beacon
Dear Sonny Jr.,
Last time you wrote you said you wanted to hear some of the old stories back when we had the bar up in Beacon. Your mother won’t be too happy I’m telling you, but you’re old enough, and I’m sure you could use a good laugh with all the tests and essays you have.
