Melrose won every event to run away with things throughout the night. Madalyn Winger led Alexandria with a second-place finish in the 500-freestyle when she finished in 5:45.97. Jaylen Olson-Rodel also had a runner-up finish in the 100-butterfly.

Three relays also finished in second place. The 400-relay team of Kate LeBrasseur, Bailey Serum, Macy Hatlestad and Winger had one of those in a time of 4:07.47. Megan Bristow, Olson-Rodel, Hatlestad and Heidi Moe did the same in the 200-freestyle relay, while LeBrasseur, Hannah Eklund, Winger and Moe took second in the 200-medley relay (2:03.45).

Things won't get much easier for a young Alexandria team in the coming meets. The Cardinals were scheduled to face Brainerd last night, Thursday, before taking on 2012 Class A runner-up Sartell next Thursday.
