Longtime state swimming power Stillwater has been opening every season for several years with a lopsided win over Elk River, and 2011 is no different.

The Ponies won 100-78 at Elk River on Tuesday evening, won 10 of 12 events, and stopped counting points with three events left.

The Elks will host Armstrong on Thursday, Sept. 8.
