After finishing first in last year's Delta Invitational, this year's squad found themselves battling strong teams from Glenwood Springs and Cedaredge. The Demons finished first and Cedaredge second with 78 points. The Panthers were third with 74.70 points.
The Panthers had one first-place finish with Ethan Jack Baier jumping 40-11.75 to win the triple jump competition. Baier was third in both the high jump and long jump events.
Justin Music looks strong in 2012 and is moving in the right direction with his second-place finish in the shot put on Saturday.
Jake Ames had solid showings in several events over the weekend. Ames is a distance runner who has the strength and build to make a strong jumper in the long jump. Ames placed third in the 1600m run, was fourth in the 800m and anchored the 3200m relay team to place eighth. Ames was joined in the relay by teammates Jacob Davignon, Ownbey, and Jon Kinderknecht. In addition to all that running, Ames placed fifth in the triple jump.
Dustin Ownbey (3200m run) and Irvin Hernandez (300m hurdles) finished fourth in their events.
Hernandez, Colin Fraser, Ethan Jack Baier, and Zach Decker combined efforts to place fifth in the 800m relay. Decker was also fifth in the open 400m dash.
In the discus throw, Blake Velasquez, Brandon Campbell, and Sean King earned points by placing fifth through seventh on Saturday.
Will Gilliam was eighth in the 110m high hurdles.
