Ragab Lands A-10 Rookie of the Week Honors
Freshman posted a narrow win in his GW debut
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Youssef Ragab of George Washington men's swimming and diving has been named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week.
Ragab made the most of his GW debut Saturday, helping the Colonials beat crosstown foe Howard,136-85, in their first dual meet of the season.
The freshman from Egypt posted a dramatic win in the 200-yard freestyle. He touched in 1:45.05, edging Howard's Darrin Asphall by seven hundredths of a second.
Ragab also finished second in the 100-yard freestyle behind teammate Tommi Wolst. He swam a leg on GW’s second-place 400-yard freestyle relay team, too.
He’s the second Colonial in as many weeks honored as A-10 Rookie of the Week. Diver Peter Nachtwey claimed the first award of the season last week.
