WASHINGTON, D.C.– American University won six of the nine women's relays to earn the team title Friday at the Potomac Relay Invitational swimming and diving meet, hosted by the Eagles.

The AU women finished with 112 points, outdistancing George Mason (90), Georgetown (82) and Howard (58). Diving scores were not immediately available.

George Mason comfortably won the men's team title, scoring 122 points. Georgetown (84), Howard (70) and AU (60) trailed the Patriots.


• Sophomore Alex Brosvik was involved in four of the Eagles' six relay wins. Individuals were limited to competing in four events. She swam anchor legs on the 3x100-yard breaststroke relay, the 4x100 IM relay and the 200 freestyle relay.

Ellie Kight, Brosvik, Natalie Hamlet and Ryan Jolley went 7:52.46 to win the 800 free relay, beating Mason by nearly five seconds.

• The trio of Kyra Mason, Alex Feys and Eleanor Felton went 2:56.94 in the 3x100 butterfly to win.

Malak Hattab, Cami Nourie and Brosvik won the 3x100 breaststroke in 3:30.23, winning by less than a second.
