Alex Rhoads 2006 featured In Stars and Stripes


Alex was a leader on the Bear teams on which he played and continued to demonstrate that talent on West Point’s lacrosse team.  Now, this Bear has the more exacting challenge of leading the 3rd Platoon of Charlie Battery, 1st Battalion, 84th Field Artillery. Stars and Stripes chronicles Lt. Rhoads’ achievements @ THAT’S A BEAR!!!


Head Lacrosse Coach David Urick announced that CT Fisher, a Landon alumnus, was selected by his teammates as a co-captain, by saying “I think it is a credit to the players on the team to select these three young men, based on their leadership and character,” Urick said. “All three of them are excellent leaders, hard workers and have the kind of character and integrity that the Georgetown lacrosse program strives to epitomize.” Specifically, as to CT’s qualifications, the head Hoya noted “By the nature of CT’s position he has to be a leader and that’s a quality he embodies,” The GU press release highlighted that  Fisher enters his senior season, having appeared in 15 career games in goal during, starting six, all during the 2010 season. He is 3-3 in three seasons, making a career-high 16 saves in a victory over Delaware in 2010 and earning a victory in GU’s 2010 season-finale victory over Villanova. Fisher played in six games during the 2011 season, splitting time with starter Jack Davis


The Bear trio won its first appearance on NBC’s 48th season of It’s Academic against Bishop Ireton and Seneca Valley. (Unfortunately my TV was on mute as the Bears lineup was introduced). The boys captured the bonus points for answering correctly all of the questions and rolled to a 435-395-380 victory
