Holmes served in his position at GW for three years and coached the squad through two Atlantic 10 conference tournament appearances.
The squad is looking to avenge its second place performance at the 2019 EAGL Championships and win the title outright.
Battle was GW’s top performer, setting a new career high in points and leading the roster with 20 points on the day.
Harvard netted 51 points in the second half, and the Colonials allowed a season-high 88 points, up from its season average of 68.8.
GW swept the podium in three events, including the 1000-yard freestyle, the 100-yard breaststroke and the 200-yard breaststroke.
With the Atlantic 10 Championships still two and a half months away, the Colonials are fighting the fatigue inherent in the December stretch of the season.
Head coach Jennifer Rizzotti said players headed into the contest focused on “intensive rebounding” and containing Delaware’s key offensive players.
