Alex swimming and diving: Brainerd ends Cards' win streak
The Alexandria swimming and diving team saw its seven-meet winning streak come to an end in the regular-season finale on Tuesday as Brainerd handed the Cardinals a 119-66 loss.
That wrapped up a 7-3 regular season for Alexandria. The Cardinals finished third in the Central Lakes Conference standings behind only Sartell and Brainerd.
The Warriors proved to be too much in every race as the Cardinals didn't record a first-place finish. They did capture 10 runner-up finishes, led by two each from Megan Bristow (200-IM, 2:28.24, 100 breaststroke, 1:15.57), Madalyn Winger (100 butterfly, 1:08.20, 500 freestyle, 6:04.26) and Kalli Bowser (100 freestyle, 58.82, 100 backstroke, 1:07.26).
The Cardinals will now turn their attention to the CLC championship meet, which is set to start next Thursday in Willmar.
Brainerd 119, Alexandria 66
