In 2006, the Georgetown Women's lacrosse team continued to be a household name on the national scene. The team started the 2006 season ranked number 10/12 in National Polls and climbed all the way to earn the number 3 seed in their ninth straight NCAA Tournament appearance. Key regular season wins over Princeton, North Carolina, Maryland and Notre Dame continued to give the Hoyas a strong reputation as the women's game grows across the country.[2] The Hoyas posted a 14-4 overall record, won its sixth straight Big East Conference Championship and made its eighth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals.

Georgetown finished the 2005 season with a 13-5 overall record and a perfect 5-0 mark in the Big East.
