GW (10-8) opened the event with shutout wins over Tufts (9-0) and Boston College (9-0) in Lewiston, Maine. The Colonials also suffered a 7-2 loss to No. 18 Bates before clinching a 3-1 weekend with Sunday's victory over Bowdoin in Brunswick.
Juniors Islam El- Fiky and Omar Sobhy led the Colonials with four individual victories each. El-Fiky leads the Colonials with 15 victories on the season while Sobhy is right behind with 14 wins.
El-Fiky was especially impressive with all four of his wins coming in straight sets while allowing just 5.6 points per game over the weekend.
Sunday's finale against Bowdoin was a thrilling 5-4 win for the Colonials that featured three key wins in the middle of the ladder.
Sophomore Larkin Brinkworth delivered a straight-set victory at No. 5, but junior Player Haynes and sophomore Chris Bell had trouble at No. 6 and No. 7, respectively. Hayes won the first two games over Andrew Ward, 11-8, but dropped an 11-6 decision in the third before rebounding to clinch the 3-1 win.
Bell found himself in an intense back-and-forth battle with William Winmill. He was forced to rally from one-game deficits on two occasions before clinching a 4-11, 11-8, 8-11, 11-9, 11-6 victory.
