Setting the tone for the remainder of the week, the relay team of rookie Lauren Law, senior Caroline Myers, sophomore Kally Vanderbilt and classmate Madison Reinker snapped the GW mark with a new time of 7:27.67, erasing the previous time of 7:32.59 that was set at last season’s league meet. The squad took home eighth place.
In the 200-yard medley relay, the team of senior Lindsay Moore, juniors Janica Lee and Morgan Zebley and senior Sydney Saunders finished in fifth place with a time of 1:44.18, just .04 seconds shy of the school record.
