WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University swimming and diving team will host its first meet of the 2012-13 season at McCarthy Pool, when they take on crosstown rivals Howard University and Catholic University on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. The meet will be the Hoyas last in 2012.
The Hoyas return to the pool after a strong showing against William & Mary last Saturday, its first meet following the Thanksgiving break. The men's team fell 115.5-84.5, while the women's team fell 138-62.

On the men's side, Paul Quincy has been a consistent scorer in the 500 yard freestyle and 1650 freestyle. Upperclassmen Christian Kilgore, Michael Ng and Matthew Mandel have been consistent scorers for the men's team, while freshmen Austin Evenson has been one of several bright spots for a strong freshmen class.
