GENEVA, Ohio – Freshman Lauren Law broke her own school record in the 400-yard individual medley to lead the George Washington women’s swimming team on the third day of the 2014 Atlantic 10 Swimming and Diving Championships at the SPIRE Institute on Friday evening.
One of just two programs competing without a diving team, GW is in eighth place through three days with a total of 171.5 points.
Law opened the meet with a first-place finish in the B Final of the 400 IM, good for ninth overall, when she clocked in with a time 4:23.32. The rookie erased her previous school record of 4:24.76, which she set at the 2013 Patriot Invitational in November.
Junior Morgan Zebley earned third place in the B Final of the 100-yard butterfly and finished 11th overall with a time of 56.04 seconds, and senior Caroline Myers finished eighth in the B Final of the 200-yard freestyle, 16th overall, in 1:52.44.
In the 100-yard breaststroke, senior Remy Neville took home seventh place with a career-best time of 1:04.50. Junior Janica Lee won the B Final of the 100 breast and took home ninth overall in 1:04.54 and sophomore Lauren Steagall touched the wall in 1:05.71, finishing fifth in the B Final and 13th overall.
Senior Lindsay Moore finished fourth in the 100-yard backstroke B Final and took home 12th place overall with a time of 51.08 seconds. In the final event of the night, the 400-yard medley relay team of Moore, Neville, Zebley and Sydney Saunders finished in eighth with a time of 3:49.03.
Reigning champion Richmond sits in first place with 434.5 points followed by Fordham in second (318), Massachusetts in third (289), George Mason in fourth (281), Duquesne in fifth (261.5), Rhode Island in sixth (216) and La Salle in seventh (198). Trailing GW is St. Bonaventure in ninth place (168) and Saint Louis in 10th (101.5).
The Colonials return to the pool on Saturday for the final day of the league championships, beginning with the preliminary heats of the 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast and 200 fly at 10:30 a.m.
