The Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta boys swim and dive team took second in a triangular with Sauk Centre/Melrose and Perham Tuesday, Jan. 15, in Morris. It was the first win over an opponent for the Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta Tiger boys swimming and diving team since Anita Nelson became head coach eight years ago.

"The boys were very excited and shocked. It was fun," Nelson said.

Perham was down almost half their squad due to injury and illness, Nelson said, adding that "Tuesday might be a different result." The Tigers host a dual with the Yellowjackets at 6 p.m. next Tuesday, Jan. 22, in Morris.

Sauk Centre/Melrose Fusion won the meet with 321 points followed by Morris/C-A with 116 and Perham/New York Mills with 58.

The Tigers had one lone first-place finisher in Christopher Just. He claimed the 200-yard freestyle event with a season best time of 2:10.11. He also timed a runner-up finish in the 100-yard freestyle with a season best time of 56.08.

The Tiger relay team of Joseph Goulet, Solomon Johnson, Mason Dougherty and Just also had a runner-up finish, with a time of 1:49.18 in the 200-yard freestyle relay.
