Sabres too much for Card swimmers
The Sartell Sabres showed they still have plenty left in the tank after finishing second at the Class A state tournament in 2012 after sinking Alexandria 124-62 last Thursday night.
The Cardinals got just two wins on the night. The first came in the opening event when Kate LeBrasseur, Hannah Eklund, Madalyn Winger and Macy Hatlestad teamed up to finish the 200 IM in 2:06.48. The Sartell team of Marena Kouba, Lindsey Martens, Anna Ellis and Kate Karpel also disqualified in the event, opening the door for Alexandria to take the win.
The Cardinals' second win didn't come until Eklund took the 100 breaststroke in the second-to-last event of the night. Eklund finished in 1:12.17.
Alexandria added nine season bests with two each coming from Jaylen Olson-Rodel and Eklund. Olson-Rodel shaved one second off her 100 butterfly time and Mikayla Meece took three seconds off her time in the 500 freestyle.
