Moffat County High School boys swimmers came home with some fine results this weekend after the Glenwood Springs Demon Invitational.

The three-team meet that included MCHS, Glenwood and Montrose — which did not keep a point tally — saw the Bulldogs place in the top three in multiple races, including Jesse Kurz's 24.77 seconds in the 50-yard freestyle, barely behind Glenwood's Jonas Ortega at 24.36.

The 200 medley relay team of Kurz, Jacob Briggs and Steamboat Springs' Brooks Birkinbine and Sean Portman also placed second, while the same quartet was third in the 200 free relay.

Kurz also took third in the 100 free, while in the 100 breaststroke, Devin McIntosh and Wes Atkin were fourth and fifth, respectively.

A scheduled home exhibition meet at MCHS this Friday has been canceled as students get ready for Spring Break, picking up again after the school holiday with April 9's D51 Invitational in Grand Junction.
