Swimmers stroke to state

Willmar's Robert Brau flies down the Jerry Carlson Pool at Hutchinson in the consolation heat of the 200 individual medley on Saturday at the 3A championships.

HUTCHINSON _ Willmar, Dassel-Cokato/Litchfield and Montevideo will all be sending delegations to the Class A State Swimming and Diving Meet.

The Cardinals qualified three relays, DCL and Montevideo one each, plus individuals, at the section meet on Saturday afternoon at the Jerry Carlson Pool in the Hutchinson Middle School.

The Morris/Minnewaska Stingrays will send Stefan Lembke. He won the 500 freestyle race in a blazing 5:02.93 and was second to DCL's Tom Werner in the 200 free.

Willmar finished third. Hutchinson was first in its home pool followed by Fergus Falls. The state meet runs Thursday through Saturday in Minneapolis.
