The Cardinal boys' swimming and diving team ended its Central Lakes Conference regular season schedule with a 137-49 loss to Brainerd last Thursday.
The loss was only Alexandria's second of the season in conference meets and third on the year as they fell to 7-3 overall.
"The Warriors, swimming at home on Parents' Night, showed the Cards they are definitely aiming to sweep through the season undefeated," coach Mark Storhaug said. "Brainerd is favored to take the [CLC] title and are positioning themselves to repeat as Section 8AA champs as well."
The Warriors won all 12 events against the Cardinals, eight of those ended in 1-2 finishes for Brainerd.
Stephen Jerde led the Redbirds' scoring with two second-place finishes in the 200 IM and the 100 backstroke. Blaine Green also recorded a second place finish in the 50 free with a time of 0:24.08 and a third place finish in the 100 fly.
Ben Vogeler also had third place finishes in the 200 free and the 100 free.
The Cardinals will now look forward to February 7 when they will host the CLC Swimming and Diving Championships. Diving prelims will begin at 7 p.m. and the swimming and diving finals will be at noon on Saturday, February 9.
