ST. CLOUD—Jacquilyn Rude won two individual events and swam on two winning relays for the Brainerd Warriors who used their depth to turn a nail-biter into a 102-84 victory over rival St. Cloud Tech in a Central Lakes Conference meet Tuesday, Sept. 11.
Both teams came into the meet undefeated - Brainerd at 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the conference, while Tech was 1-0 both overall and in the CLC.
Rude won the 50- and 100-yard freestyle. Madelynn Gibbons was Brainerd's only other individual winner clocking the quickest 200 individual medley.
Rude and Gibbons teamed with Ellie Mattson and Sidney Miller to win the 200 free relay and then with Teagan Rudstrom and Hannah Tatge to win the 400 free relay.
Brainerd claimed the lead for good when Rude won the 100 freestyle with Rudstrom and Tatge finishing third and fourth.
The Warriors stretched their lead to 66-60 as Brainerd's Jenna Host, Macey Whitlock and Sidney Miller claimed second, third and fourth in the 500 free.
