Wes Schlichting of Sauk Rapids held the old record set three years ago of 279.0 points.

The Cardinals got off to a good start, winning the first three events. But Alexandria won the next five, including 1-2 finishes in both the 100 freestyle and the 500 freestyle.

Willmar divers Bennett Woltjer (225.75) and Sam Murphy (190.4) both scored personal bests and A.J. Derouin's 5:34.09 in the 500 freestyle was his best.

Willmar will host the eight-team Section 5A True Team meet on Saturday with diving at 10 a.m. and swimming finals at 1:30 p.m.
