BUFFALO, N.Y. - Junior standout Phillip Graeter earned second place in the 200-yard individual medley and posted an NCAA B cut time to highlight the second day of the Atlantic 10 Men's Swimming Championships on Thursday at the Burt Flickinger Aquatic Center on the campus of Erie Community College.

The George Washington men's swimming team sits in seventh place with 138 points after two days of competition.

Graeter, who was a member of the third-place finishing 800-yard freestyle relay team, finished second in the 200 IM with a career-best time of 1:48.58, just .38 seconds behind Xavier's first-place finisher. Graeter's time was also good enough for an NCAA B cut.
