Honors College Students Help Secure Mason’s Historic Softball Win at the 2023 Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship


When it comes to leaving an impact across campus, Honors College students on the softball team knock it out of the park. Fourth-ranked in the Atlantic 10 Conference, Mason’s softball team – including several Honors College students – battled and beat number two team, Loyola University Chicago. During the winner-take-all final game, the Patriots pulled ahead of the Ramblers in extra innings, leading the Patriots to a victory of 6-3. Student athletes from the Honors College put their exceptional skills on display on May 13, when for the first time in program history the women’s softball team won the Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship.  

Bringing a range of interests and talents to the Honors College community, Honors College students excel in various areas of student life at George Mason, sports included.
