The Georgetown Prep varsity football team traveled Washington, D.C., on September 15 to take on the top-ranked Gonzaga College High School in the 17th annual Jesuit Gridiron Classic game.
Gonzaga kicked a field goal midway through the first quarter to lead 3-0. In the second quarter, Prep quarterback Kyonte Hamilton '21 found Chase Maccartee '20 for a Hoyas' touchdown. Prep's defense held the nation's 10th best team to only three first half points as Prep led Gonzaga 7-3.
In the third quarter, Gonzaga scored on back-to-back possessions to take a 17-7 lead. In the fourth quarter, the Eagles added two more scored to extend their lead to 31-7. Gonzaga held on for the win.

Prep is 1-2 on the year and ranked #17 in the area by The Washington Post.

The Prep Cross Country team traveled to Frederick, Maryland to compete in an invitational meet hosted by Hood College.
The team finished eighth overall bolstered by strong performances across the board. Matthew Strong '21's 17:47 clocking led a sturdy Hoyas pack that placed six runners within forty seconds.
In addition to a strong race by Matthew Williams '20 and substantial personal bests by Andrew Nguyen '20, Sean Mullery '21, and Daniel Atayi '22, the depth of this close-knit team finish was urgently needed. The front five finished in a three-way tie with Clarksburg and Linganore and only Evan Deobald '21's clutch performance successfully broke both ties in Prep's favor.
Prep will next compete in the Riva Relays this Saturday, September 21 at 5:00 p.m.
