Swimming and diving: Alexandria laps Willmar at DMS
The Alexandria girls swimming and diving team wrapped up the home portion of its schedule by dominating Willmar in a 118-68 final on Thursday night.
The Cardinals got off to a fast start, finishing first and second in the 200-medley relay, and never looked back from there. Jadeya Peterson (200 freestyle, 2:09.57), Hattie Galloway (50 freestyle, 26.04), Aleah Dokter (100 butterfly, 1:12.65), Halle Pease (500 freestyle, 6:00.65) and McKena Horan (100 backstroke, 1:05.69) all got individual wins to show off the Cardinals’ depth.
Alexandria put the finishing touches on things by finishing first in the 400-freestyle relay. Horan, Sidney Johnson, Peterson and Galloway finished more than a second in front of Willmar’s team with a time of 3:56.13.
The Cardinals will head to Fergus Falls on Oct. 16 at 6 p.m. before turning their attention to their championship meets. The Central Lakes Conference meet is Oct. 27 in Willmar at 10 a.m., and the section meet is Nov. 8 and 10 in Sartell.
