ST. CLOUD — The Willmar boys swimming and diving team opened the 2021-22 season Thursday at St. Cloud Tech.

The Cardinals lost 96-86 to the team made up of swimmers from Tech, St. Cloud Cathedral, Rocori and Becker High Schools.

“The boys swam hard, but we have a lot of work to do,” Willmar head coach Carl Shuldes said.

Willmar senior Collin O’Farrell won the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 2 minutes, 2.47 seconds.

Willmar also took first and second in the final event of the night, the 400 freestyle relay. The team of O’Farrell, Jacob Loerzel, Ethan Hurley and David Lammers timed in at 3:51.07.
