Eklund wraps up swim season at state

Alexandria's Hannah Eklund saw her season come to an end at the Class A state swim meet at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center on Tuesday afternoon.

Eklund was there to swim in the 100 breaststroke and took 23rd out of 27 competitors. The freshman finished in a time of 1:10.98 after coming in with a seed time of 1:09.40. The top 16 swimmers in the event advanced to the final day of competition. Lindsey Horejsi of Albert Lea had the fastest time in the 100 breaststroke prelims with a time of 1:00.24. That was just off the state record time of 1:00.16 that Horejsi set in the 2012 state tournament.
