Prep Swimming: Willmar finally pulls plug on Fergus


WILLMAR -- Since Fergus Falls joined the Central Lakes Conference in 2005-06, the Otters had lived up their nickname and outswam the Cardinals in every dual meet.

Willmar beached the Otters 101-82 on Thursday at the high-school eight-lane pool.

"It was just an outstanding all-around effort," said an elated Carl Shuldes, who has headed up the girls program since 2003. "All our relays swam their best times."
