A trip to the Menomonee Falls Invitational yielded a fourth-place finish among 12 schools for the Janesville Craig boys swim team.

The Cougars’ 349.5 points were 200.5 points more than fifth-place Watertown, and the three teams that beat Craig all have swimmers with experience in the state meet.

The Cougars had a finisher in the top six in all but two events, led by second-place finishes by Zach Butelle and Peter Loftus in the 200 freestyle and 200 individual medley, respectively.

Craig coach Brian Kitzman said his swimmers are improving every time they compete, which bodes well with the hyper-competitive Big Eight Conference meet coming up Feb. 8.
