Brainerd finishes alone at the top of the Central Lakes dual-meet standings at 8-0.  Willmar sustained just its second loss and ends up 6-2 (7-3 overall).

The conference meet is Oct. 26 at Alexandria. Willmar will host sections Nov. 7 and 9.

Kennedy Holwerda, Anna Backes and Alycia Holwerda scored firsts but Brainerd had six individual wins plus the concluding relay.

The Cards went 1-3 in the 200-free relay, also. Backes, Olson, Cassie Lanenau and Marin Fischer posted a one second win over Brainerd’s No. 1 quartet.
