Men’s swimming and diving
The men’s swimming and diving team competed in session one of the annual Invitational against local rivals American and Catholic held at Catholic Friday night. Junior David Zenk was the team’s best performer, winning two races (50 and 500-yard freestyles).
The team had more success Saturday night at American, as Zenk, fellow junior Tom Pullen, sophomore Rick Rogers and freshman Andrew Maguire all won individual events. Zenk won four events: two in freestyle, two in backstroke. The Colonials also swept both breaststroke races, as GW players placed in the top four of each.
The Colonials will host Atlantic 10 rival La Salle Saturday at the Smith Center.
GW women’s soccer beat Temple 1-0 Friday on a first-half goal from junior Meg Pyle. The win broke a three-game losing streak for the struggling Colonials (7-8-0, 2-6 A-10). Redshirt junior Amie Kern needed to make just three saves in recording her fifth shutout of the season.
GW next plays Saint Joseph’s (3-13-0, 1-7-0) in the season’s home finale Sunday at 3 p.m., as part of the annual “Kickin’ It At The Vern” celebration.
The men’s and women’s cross country teams each finished in the top 10 of the A-10 Championships in Philadelphia. The men were seventh out of 14 teams, while the women finished ninth out of 14. The men’s finish was its best since 2003.
Junior Chris Pisano was the fastest Colonial, running a time of 26 minutes and 22 seconds (19th out of 144 runners).
Two-time all-conference runner Audrey Noonan, a junior, finished the women’s course in 19 minutes and one second (ninth out of 136).
The teams finish their seasons next week at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regionals Saturday, Nov. 10.
GW’s volleyball team lost 3-0 to Temple Saturday in Philadelphia. The Owls (12-16, 7-4 A-10) won the first and third match convincingly, with the game’s scores 30-15, 30-28 and 30-21. The Colonials (12-14, 4-6 A-10) are still in good position to make the A-10 playoffs but have an important match at Charlotte Thursday. Charlotte trails GW by one game in the A-10’s Eastern Division.
