Each team won six events but St. Michael-Albertville had more depth and defeated Elk River 101-85 on Tuesday evening in the Elks’ pool at VandenBerge.

“We had some good swims tonight,” said Elk coach Denise Green. “We were missing a couple swimmers to illness who would have made this a closer meet, but the guys who were here swam well and we had fun.”

STMA is an always-strong neighborhood non-conference rival for the Elks.

Spencer Hlavachek won the 50 free and 100 backstroke for the Elks.  Andy Bronshteyn won diving with a 290.30 score, edging closer to the team six-dive record of 308.80. Nick Kopp won breaststroke, and the Elks won two of three relays.

This concludes the pre-holidays portion of the schedule. Next for the Elks will be the Spring Lake Park Invitational on Jan. 4.
