Georgetown sophomore attackman Jake Carrawayhad two goals and two assists in Tuesday’s 16-6 rout of Mount St. Mary’s. The Annapolis resident and St. Mary’s graduate is tied for the team lead in goals with 13 and ranks second in points with 18. After Tuesday’s game, Carraway shared his thoughts on his play and the No. 17 Hoyas’ 4-0 start.
How did you feel about your performance in today’s game?
I thought it was a good start for everyone on the team. Our offense is moving really fast. Everyone moves the ball great, very unselfish. It’s a bunch of dodgers out here that I get to be on the opposite side. So it’s nice.
How about you personally? When you have those kinds of opportunities, how good does it feel to convert them?
It feels good. It’s just a lot of practice throughout the week. We’re going 1-0 every rep, every practice, and every drill. So it’s nice to get a little satisfaction when the plays come through.
What is the feeling on the team having improved to 4-0?
I think like I just said, one of our main fundamental values of our team that we chose this year was to go 1-0, and we’re just taking it one game at a time. So I think we’re not looking too far ahead to the future. We’re just staying consistent with our program and our values.
Is it difficult, though, not to feel particularly good about this 4-0 start?
No, I mean yeah, it definitely feels good, but we’re staying focused. We’re focusing on short-term goals right now.
What’s been the difference this year versus last year?
