Jacquilyn Rude won two individual events and swam on two winning relays for the Brainerd Warriors who kept their record unblemished with a 116-70 win over the Alexandria Cardinals Thursday, Sept. 13, in a Central Lakes Conference meet at Brainerd High School.

For the second time this week, the depth of the Brainerd team was key to the win as the Warriors won just two other individual events—Jenna Host in the 500-yard freestyle and Izzy Olson in diving. Brainerd swept all three relays.

Rude continued to dominate the short distance freestyles outswimming the field in the 50 and 100. She teamed up with Host, Teagan Rudstrom and Hannah Tatge for first in the 200 free relay.

In the 400 free relay, it was Rude, Rudstrom, Tatge and Ellie Mattson touching first. Mattson topped the podium in the 200 medley relay along with Isabelle Prozinski, Anna Just and Macey Whitlock.

Brainerd improved to 5-0 overall, 4-0 in the CLC.
