Senior Kris Aaseng was all alone during the latter stages of the 500 freestyle on Tuesday night. The 500 was one of two wins for Aaseng as he paced Alexandria against a talented Brainerd team. The Warriors were too much overall as they took eight of the 12 races to pick up a Central Lakes Conference win in the Cardinals' home pool. (Eric Morken, Echo Press)
