Giannopulos, who platoons for the Eagles as a midfielder and a faceoff specialist, finished the 2013 season as the top sophomore state-wide in ground balls with 196.  His ground ball total ranked third among boys Division I players.

As a sophomore, Giannopulos’ 42 points (30g, 12a) ranked fourth on the Issaquah squad and helped the Eagles to a 14-6-0 record to finish first in the Boys Division I King East Conference before eventually falling to state runner-up Mercer Island by a single goal in the 2013 state quarterfinals.

After being recruited by NCAA Division I Georgetown, Giannopulos committed as a sophomore to play for the Hoyas.

Georgetown finished the 2013 season with a 6-9 overall record, earning a berth in the Big East Tournament.  The Hoyas last advanced to the NCAA Men’s Division I Tournament in 2007, which was its 11th consecutive trip to the NCAAs.
