Owen McElroy



McElroy earned his undergraduate degree in marketing this past May. He is now pursuing a Master’s in Professional Studies in Sports Industry Management, where he carries a 3.92 GPA.

McElroy was named to the BIG EAST All-Academic Team last season.


McElroy is a third-generation Hoya, following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father. He has always loved Georgetown and is deliberate in his actions to better the community.

McElroy has already earned the highest individual accolades one can receive and could have easily called it a career. Instead, he decided to return for a final season with the hope of helping his teammates excel and lifting the program to top.


McElroy has helped spearhead Georgetown’s annual Cycle for Survival, which raises money and awareness for rare cancer patients. He also helped organize the team’s participation in the Race to Beat Cancer 5K, which supports the MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute (MGCI) at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

Additionally, McElroy has served as the team representative for Lacrosse for Life, coordinating events and fundraising for cancer research.


Since earning the starting position in 2019, McElroy has started in all but one game. He has helped lead the Hoyas to three-straight BIG EAST championships and led the Blue & Gray to their first NCAA Quarterfinals appearance since 2007 last year.

McElroy had an incredible season in 2021, being named the USILA Ensign C. Markland Kelly Jr. Outstanding Goalie. He was a consensus first team All-American after leading the NCAA in GAA (8.38) and ranking fifth in SV% (.583). In addition to those outstanding accolades, McElroy was named the BIG East Goalkeeper of the Year, a All-BIG EAST first team selection, and the BIG EAST Tournament Most Outstanding Player.

In 2020, McElroy was having a terrific season before it was cut short, as well. He was named an Inside Lacrosse first team All-American after leading the NCAA in GAA (.621) and SV% (.689).
