Fergus Falls wins final event to nip Brainerd by a point


FERGUS FALLS — The Brainerd Warriors didn’t win a single event, but kept the meet close by going 2-3-4 in nine events before losing 93-92 to the defending Class 1A state champion Fergus Falls Otters in Tuesday’s Central Lakes Conference dual meet.

In a battle of unbeaten 6-0 teams, it was fitting the outcome came down to the final event with the Otters winning the 400-yard freestyle relay by a 2.66-second margin to hold off the Warriors.
