ST. CLOUD - Jared Anderson won the 50- and 500-yard freestyle and was a member of two winning relays, the 200 medley and 200 freestyle, Thursday to help lead the Brainerd Warriors swimming and diving team to a 108-72 win over the St. Cloud Tech Tigers.
The Warriors finished the Central Lakes Conference regular season 8-0 to capture the dual meet title. The last team to finish the conference regular season unbeaten was the 1991 Warriors.
Head coach John Zemke said he shuffled his lineup Thursday.
"We swan a lot of off events and moved guys around," he said. "I thought our three IM guys (Michael Brekken, Jonathan Warling and Jacob Larson) all had really nice times. That was a nice highlight for them because they don't normally get to swim that event."
Joining Anderson as victors in the 200 medley relay were Brekken, Brian Kolbeck and Andrew Goll. In the 200 freestyle relay along with Anderson were Evan Reese, Alek Rudstrom and Goll.
Reese captured the 200 freestyle, Keenan Goodrich the diving competition and Goll the 100 freestyle for the Warriors.
