The Cardinals, who won section titles in 2008 and 2009, scored 1,249 to beat Melrose/Sauk Centre by six points for the Section 5A meet at the Willmar Senior High pool.

It's the first year that Class A has been divided into six sections, not four. Willmar's previous two crowns were from Section 3A.

Montevideo took fifth and Morris/Chokio-Alberta was eighth.

Kyle Rozendaal won the 100 backstroke and the 200 freestyle relay team of David Skonard, Ben Fuglestad, Mason Kluver and Michael McLain also earned a gold for the Cardinals.

Montevideo's Tommy Payne took second in the 50 freestyle and Chase Testa was second in diving. The Thunder Hawks also finished runner-up to Willmar in the 200 freestyle relay.

The state True Team meet will be held at 1 p.m. next Saturday at the University of Minnesota.
