The Colonials posted season-best times in both the 200-yard medley and 800-yard freestyle relays, as they finished seventh and ninth, respectively.
“We swam great times today and I’m really happy with the performances,” said head coach Dan Rhinehart. “If we keep pushing and working hard we will definitely continue to swim will.”
GW kicked off the day’s events with the 200 medley relay, landing seventh place with a season-best time of 1:45.44. Sophomore Lindsay Moore, freshmen Janica Lee and Morgan Zebley and sophomore Sloan Saunders picked up 24 points for the Colonials with the finish.
In the 800 free relay, sophomores Caroline Myers, Melissa Fernandez, Saunders and Lee clocked in at 7:35.14 for a seventh-place finish. The squad’s time was just under 10 seconds faster than its previous season-best time.
