Whitefish swimmers held their own against top competition at the Great Falls Relay Meet over the weekend.

Whitefish finished fifth overall in combined scores, with the girls getting sixth and boys getting fifth in the meet, which featured AA schools as well as A schools like Whitefish and Columbia Falls.

No relay team was able to crack the top three, but a handful of fourth place finishes stand out as highlights for the team.

The Bulldogs finished fourth in the boys 200 yard medley relay (1:52.75), the boys 200 yard breaststroke relay (2:17.99) and the boys 200 yard freestyle relay (1:43.04), while the girls picked up a fifth place finish in the 200 yard backstroke relay (2:18.73).

The team will get some time away from competing with the holiday break. Theyll pick up the action on Jan. 6 at the Missoula Invite.
