April 23, 2017
THORNTON — Windsor stood out among the giants on Saturday at the Mustang Invitational in the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center. The Wizards finished sixth with 151 points, the best of all the non-Class 5A teams there.
Fossil Ridge, Fairview, Boulder, Legacy and Broomfield comprised the top five. Greeley West came in seventh with 108 points, and Valley, the only other Weld team there, came in last with four.
No Weld swimmers or relay teams finished in the top three in any events, but Windsor's Colby Horton set a school record in the 50-yard freestyle. His time of 22.87 was a half-second faster than the mark Ryan Kurtz set in 2012, and it earned him 10th place.
That's the third school record that Horton has had a hand in this season — he also set the mark in the 100 free and swam a leg of the Wizards' record-breaking 200 medley relay team.
The Wizards' Josh Dodrill swam a 4A state qualifying time in his leadoff leg of the 400 free relay, bringing Windsor's state squad to eight swimmers and three relay teams.
