As a competitor, it’s so disheartening to go to these various schools throughout the conference and check out these state-of-the-art, expansive facilities. When you compare those facilities to the meager accommodations at McDonough, you can’t help but frown… Beyond that, it is even more frustrating to be a member of one of the 29 teams that is forced to share this small space that is McDonough… We all work hard in practice and we smell like hard work after practice, and that just litters the building as various teams are in the hallway… It’s pretty awful.-- Monica McNutt speaking to the DC Zoning Commission about the athlete experience at Georgetown. Markel Starks, Jeff Green, and John Thompson III also spoke. The Commission approved the proposed Intercollegiate Athletic Center. Now all is left is getting architectural approval from the Old Georgetown Board and D.C. Fine Arts Commission. Oh yeah, and fundraising.
