WASHINGTON, DC -- The GW men's and women's swim teams combined to win 13 individual events in a three-way meet with American and Catholic Universities Friday and Saturday. Friday's races were held at Catholic's DuFour Center pool while Saturday's races took place at American's Reeves Aquatic Center.
