Islam El-Fiky improved his team-leading season victory total to 15 with four wins at the top of the ladder to guide the nationally ranked No. 17 GW men's squash team to three victories in four matches this past weekend.

He helped the Colonials to shutout wins over Tufts (9-0) and Boston College (9-0) in Lewiston, Maine on Friday and Saturday, respectively. El-Fiky then posted one of GW's two head-to-head wins in Saturday's 7-2 loss to No. 18 Bates, before securing a victory in the Colonials' narrow 5-4 triumph at No. 19 Bowdoin on Sunday.

All four of El-Fiky's victories came in straight sets as he allowed an average of only 5.6 points in 12 games over the weekend.
