Thursday the Patriots were back at it, winning both the boys and girls team titles at the HYCAT Holiday Invitational at the University of Charleston natatorium. The boys scored 395 points, beating second-place Hurricane by 171.5 points, and the GW girls won with 491 points, 352 more than runner-up Hurricane.
On the girls side, GW took individual titles in the 200-yard freestyle (junior Allison Moore), the 200 individual medley (freshman Emily Hageboeck), the 50 freestyle (Davis), the 100 backstroke (Davis), the 100 breastroke (sophomore Haley Hemsworth) and relay titles in the 200 medley, 200 freestyle and the 400 freestyle.
Patriot boys won titles in the 100 butterfly (Nason), 500 freestyle (Nason) and captured the 200 freestyle relay title.
George Washington also swept both titles at the HYCAT December Invitational, also at UC, earlier this month. Both the boys and girls teams own multiple titles this season and appear poised for another run at state championships in February.
"When we go to Morgantown we go to swim and go to win," Case said.
