LAST TIME OUT: The Colonials split its final weekend of regular-season matches, concluding the run with a 9-0 shutout at Dickinson on Saturday afternoon.

Seven of nine victories came in three games as Jamie Oakley, Oisin Logan, Andres de Frutos, Juan Sebastian Laguna, Billy Berner, Omar Mussehl, and John Basset all cruised to victories.

LAST TIME AT NATIONALS: GW went 2-1 in the Hoehn Cup at last year's CSA National Championships at Yale, punctuated by the program's first-ever win over Princeton that clinched a final national ranking of No. 11, the highest in program history.
