George Washington women's swimming and diving claimed 15 of 16 events Saturday en route to a 181-119 win over Boston College on Saturday at Charles E. Smith Center Pool.

Emily Zhang and Jackie Torrez won three races apiece, while Gemma Atherley and Abigail Fusco each picked up a pair of individual victories. The Colonials also took both relays as part of a sterling performance in their second meet of the weekend.


  • Zhang posted her wins in the 200-yard freestyle (1:53.56), 100-yard breaststroke (1:06.79) and 100-yard freestyle (52.97 seconds). The junior also swam a leg on GW's winning 200-yard medley relay team. For the weekend, she won five of six individual events, plus two relays.
  • Torrez won the 200-yard butterfly (2:08.45), 200-yard breaststroke (2:26.13) and 200-yard individual medley (2:11.18). She edged teammate Andrea Ho by less than a second in the medley victory.
  • Atherley captured both backstroke races. The sophomore also had a hand in both relay wins.
  • Fusco earned wins in the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard butterfly, improving her times in both from Friday's meet. The senior swam a leg in the medley relay win to open the meet and then anchored a narrow victory in the 200-yard freestyle relay to close it.
  • Miranda Simon (3M Dive), Selin Ozturk (1,000 Free) and Tali Lemcoff (500 Free) also posted victories for the Colonials.
