WILLMAR — Marshall won two more events than Willmar, but the Cardinals’ depth sunk the Tigers as Willmar collected a 109-76 non-conference win Monday.

The Tigers won six individual events to Willmar’s three — Alycia Holwerda in the 200 IM and 100 breaststroke, and Kennedy Holwerda in the 100 butterfly. The Cardinals, however, had 14 second- and third-place finishes.

Willmar also won the 200 medley relay with the Holwerdas, Miranda Kuchta and Cassie Lankenau, and the 400 freestyle relay with Kuchta, Kennedy Holwerda, Anna Backes and Marin Fischer.

The Cardinals return to the pool on Thursday when they face Central Lakes Conference rival Alexandria on the road.
