Logan Tung

The Alexandria boys swimming and diving team kept rolling in its meet against Fergus Falls Thursday night.

The Cardinals took down the Otters 115-69 to remain undefeated in dual and conference matchups.

Eighth-grader Logan Tung had a career-best time of 1:06:14 in the 100 yard breaststroke. Tung’s performance was good enough to add six points to the Cardinal’s totals as he won that event.

Alexandria took home the top two spots in the 100 and 200 yard freestyle events. Senior Patrick Chromey finished first in the 200 with a time of 1:54:42 and second in the 100 at 50:60. Finishing right before Chromey in the 100 was freshman Nicholas Welle, who edged him by just .45 seconds.

Freshmen Caden Kavanaugh and sophomore Jackson Jahnke finished third and fourth in the diving event. Kavanaugh finished with a final score of 144.50.

The Cardinals took home first place in the 200 and 400 yard freestyle relays. Sophomore Garett Maras, senior Nick Olson, Welle and Chromey clocked in at 1:32:31 in the 200 and 3:24:86 in the 400.

The Cardinals hit the road on Jan. 15 to race against another conference opponent, St. Cloud Tech, at 6 p.m.
