MINNEAPOLIS -- Alissa Tinklenberg is the highest returning qualifier in the Class A 200 yard freestyle. The Willmar freshman placed third last year as an eighth-grader in the state meet at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center. Three other qualifiers return in the event. Her qualifying time of two minutes flat is only the seventh fastest of 24 swimmers in Tuesday's preliminaries. But the six-time state medal winner doesn't punch in overdrive until the state meet.
MINNEAPOLS -- Jarrett Hall of Ridgewater College went 4-0 to win the 165-pound Gold Division at the Augsburg Invitational on Saturday. Hall, a redshirt sophomore from Greenbush, wrestled against varsity competition from 11 four-year school and three junior colleges. "That's pretty impressive to win in the Gold against some quality schools, including Augsburg," said Warriors coach Jesse Nelson. "We had five others place in Gold, so it was a pretty good day." Jimmy Marx, Greg Skerik and Justin Turek were each 3-1 in Gold, Cody Pahan 2-1 and Ben Thonvold 2-2.
