GW is in fourth place with a total of 58 points through the first two events, while St. Bonaventure leads the pack with 80 points after winning both races. Following the Bonnies in the standings is Xavier (68) in second, reigning conference champion Massachusetts (60) in third and GW in fourth. Saint Louis (56), La Salle (54) and Fordham (52) round out the finishes in fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively.
The Colonials opened the meet with a record-setting performance in the 200-yard medley relay for a sixth-place finish. The team of junior Jake Mortensen, sophomore Garrett Cottingham, freshman Oliver Keegan and senior Luke Quimby clocked in at 1:31.32 and surpassed the 14-year-old record of 1:31.44 that was set in 1999.
GW then made its first trip to the podium when the 800-yard freestyle relay team claimed third place with a new school mark of 6:36.75. Senior Phillip Graeter, Keegan, freshman Jordan Sharples and senior Niklas Glenesk erased the Colonials' previous record of 6:40.15 that was set at the 2012 A-10 Championships - a team which Graeter led off and Glenesk anchored.
The championships resume on Thursday morning with the preliminary events beginning at 10:30 a.m. followed by the finals at 6:30 p.m.
