Demons start swim season in Grand Junction

Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Another Glenwood Springs High School boys swimming season is upon us, and it began with a splash at this weekend’s Grand Junction Relays.

Glenwood seniors Cole Newton and Geoff Moore combined with Aspen junior Michael Zimet and Eagle Valley freshman Jack Cassidy to take second place in the 200-yard medley relay. The quartet’s time of 1 minute, 54.91 seconds was a state meet qualifying time.

Zimet and Cassidy swim with Glenwood because their schools don’t have swim teams.

Glenwood’s third senior, Jonathan De Leo, contributed as soon as he hit the water at Mesa State College, helping Moore, Cassidy and Zimet to another second-place finish, this time in the 400 medley relay.

The team swam strong throughout the meet, winning the 200 backstroke relay and narrowly missing another state-qualifying time in a second-place 400 freestyle relay.

Next up for the Demons is the forthcoming weekend’s Montrose Invitational. The two-day meet will be the team’s first individual event.

Glenwood’s lone home meet this season is an April 23 meeting with Moffat County and Gunnison at the Glenwood Springs Community Center.
