Zhang placed fifth in the 400-yard individual medley (4:28.14) at Robert F. Busbey Natatorium, while Atherley made the A final in the 200-yard freestyle and finished 10th (1:54.05). Both of them also swam legs on GW's fourth-place 800-yard freestyle relay team.
The Colonials have registered 249 points to earn a place firmly in the top half of the 15-team field. They continue to chase Akron, Duquesne, Cleveland State and Xavier, heading into the final day of competition.
- GW's young divers made an impact again Saturday. Freshman Rachel Dickinson posted 235.95 points in the 3-meter competition to place sixth. She was followed by freshman Gabriella Arendes (seventh) and sophomore Gillian Chowske (ninth).
- Zhang and Atherley were joined in the 800 free relay by Selin Ozturk and Abigail Fusco. That group touched in 7:34.50 to post GW's best relay finish of the day.
- Jackie Torrez and Andrea Ho both qualified for B finals as individuals. Torrez placed 15th in the 400 IM, while Ho got 13th in the 100-yard backstroke.
