The Alexandria swimming and diving team came away with a win to run its record to 3-0 on Thursday night.

The Cardinals’ 200-medley relay team of Sidney Johnson, Emma Bugher, Jisella Haskamp and Alaina Guenther out-touched the Storm relay by .05 to win the first event. That set the tone as Alexandria went on to win 99.5-80.5.

Brooklyn Millward (200 IM), Hattie Galloway (50 free, 100 butterfly), Erica Johnson (diving), Jisella Haskamp (100 free), Julia Wilmesmeier (500 free), the 200 freestyle relay team and Grace Urke (100 breaststroke) all got wins.

The Cardinals host two Central Lakes Conference meets next week as St. Cloud Tech comes to Discovery Middle School pool on Tuesday and Sartell comes into town on Thursday.
