GIRLS SWIMMING AND DIVING: Bemidji beats Warriors first time since 1996


Bemidji snapped a streak of nine straight dual-meet losses to Brainerd as the Lumberjacks defeated the Warriors 95-90 for a season-opening win Tuesday night at the Brainerd High School pool.

Brainerd beat Bemidji nine times between 2003-11. The teams didn’t swim in a dual meet between 1997-2002.

Tuesday’s meet was a nail-biter and was decided by the 400 free relay, the final event. Bemidji won in 3:50.99, Brainerd finished in 3:51.21.
