Swimming: Osseo downs Elks 100-80

The Osseo Orioles handed the Elk River-Rogers-Zimmerman swimmers a 100-80 defeat on Tuesday evening in Osseo.

Nolan Vander Ploeg and Tim Van Lanhoven each won two individual events for Osseo, as did Aaron Schwab for ERZ. Osseo won all three relays. The only other first for the Elks was by Andrew Bronshteyn in diving.

“It was a perfect storm of illness and DQs,” said Elk coach Denise Eidem. “We had three varsity regulars out with the flu and one more at less than 50  percent.  We also had two varsity DQs which accounted for a big swing in points.

“Healthy and swimming smart, it was going to be a close meet.  As it was, it wasn’t so close.”

AJ Eckblad covered for Kevin O’Hara and placed 2nd in diving.

“We had to juggle the line up, especially relays, to fill in for sick swimmers,” said Eidem. “We will have to do the same tomorrow at True Team.  We hope to get healthy soon!”

The Elks (2-3) will compete in true-team sectionals on Saturday at St. Cloud Tech.
