GROVE CITY, PA - The George Washington women's water polo team dominated the competition and posted a 4-0 record Friday and Saturday at the Grove City College Invitational in Grove City, PA.

GW freshman Morgan Hooker (Woodland Hills, CA/Harvard Westlake) paced the Colonials' attack with 12 goals on the weekend.
