THORNTON — Greeley West and Windsor had a series of strong performances against top competition at the Dick Rush Memorial Invitational on Saturday at the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center.
Windsor finished second in the 4A meet with 83 points, with its best finish coming with Colby Horton’s sixth-place effort in the 100-meter butterfly. The Wizards had one other top-10 finish, the team of Horton, Ethan Hansbury, Garrett Ludwick and Jeff Borrett, who were ninth in the 200 medley relay.
The Spartans (144 points) placed ninth in the Class 5A standings.
Greeley West junior Jackson Wuthrich won the 200-yard freestyle (1:45.77) and the 500 freestyle (4:51.70). In both events, his sophomore teammate Nathan Kenigsberg was second, finishing the 200 free in 1:46.91 and the 500 free in 4:53.68.
Spartans coach Colin Shaha said it was the first time West had the top 2 placers in any event at the Dick Rush.
“We graduated Brody Lewis and Bryce Fehringer last year, so often what happens, you lose those two leaders off the team, sometimes those left behind are saying, ‘What are we going to do now?’ ” Shaha said. “Both Jackson and Nathan are looking around and saying, ‘Now it’s our turn to lead the team.’ And, they didn’t balk at that at all.”
Also not backing down for West, sophomore Baylor Cobb had 4A state-qualifying times in the 200 individual medley (10th, 2:11.84) and the 100 breaststroke (1:05.84).
