Gilman's Emala leaving Georgetown, possibly heading to North Carolina

Davey Emala, a Baltimore native and Gilman graduate, has withdrawn from Georgetown and is seeking to transfer to another school, according to a pair of sources.

A university spokesman confirmed the departure, and Emala is no longer listed on the team’s website.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound attackman recently wrapped up his sophomore campaign as the Hoyas’ leader in both points (48) and goals (35). He was named to the All-Big East second team.

Emala and sophomore attackman Travis Comeau became the first Georgetown duo to each score 30 goals in a single season since 2001 when Steve Dusseau (38) and Scott Doyle (30) did it in 2001.

Emala is considering a number of programs, and one rumored destination is North Carolina, which makes sense as a four former Gilman players dot the roster. They are junior goalkeeper Matt Holman, sophomore attackman Marcus Holman, redshirt sophomore midfielder Greg McBride and freshman midfielder Duncan Hutchins.

Tar Heels coach Joe Breschi declined to comment, citing NCAA regulations prohibiting discussing a potential transfer until the student has enrolled at the school.

The spoiled brat wants a national championship.

what's the matter, the kid can't hack the academic rigor at georgetown?

is lacrosse suffering the same woes at ncaa football and basketball, i.e. athletes not "scholar-athletes"?

maybe high school programs should require students to score a minimum SAT score before making the team.

then college coaches won't waste time recruiting athletes who can't cut the academic standards at their university.
