Alexandria swimming: Aaseng poised for one last swim

Email News Alerts

Alexandria's Kris Aaseng knows the kind of uphill climb he has in front of him if he's going to win a 500-freestyle state title on Saturday.


The senior enters the Class A prelims today as the second seed in the race, but even that is a bit deceiving. Red Wing's Tanner Alms (4:47.81) has Aaseng (4:48.50) by less than a second in seed times. But not even Aaseng questions who is the man to beat entering the race at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center.
