Swimming: Monte fifth; medals in five events

MINNEAPOLIS -- Relay-rich Montevideo placed high in all three relays to take fifth place overall at the Class A Swimming and Diving championships that ended a three-day run Saturday at the University of Minnesota's Aquatics Center.

The 200 freestyle relay finished second to a quartet representing team champion St. Thomas Academy. The Thunder Hawks' Jeremy Melby, David Nedrud, Casey Enevoldsen and Brad Vickers finished in 1:29.72, .09 seconds behind the Cadets, who won the team trophy by a whopping 141 points over the Breck/Blake School tandem.

Montevideo was fifth in both the 200 medley and 400-freestyle relays. Melby (third in the 100 breaststroke in 1:00.81) and Paul Jerve (eighth in the butterfly in 56.04) earned three medals each. Also medaling were Sam Hathaway, Brad Vickers, Casey Enevoldsen and Andrew Spaeth.

Willmar's three relay teams competed Friday in the preliminaries but were unable to advance.
