Lakers Wrap Up Swim Season At State

Minneapolis Southwest closed out its 2010-11 boys swimming and diving season with three consolation-round swims on Saturday night at the Class AA state championship meet.

Berglund began his night by taking 14th overall in the 50-yard freestyle, placing sixth in the consolation heat with a time of 22.07 seconds; he then took tenth in the 100-yard freestyle with a runner-up consolation finish of 47.87.

The senior was joined by classmates Christian Clarity and Joe Heegaard and sophomore Ben Coldwell to take 16th in the 400 relay in a time of 3:20.56.

Southwest placed 30th in the final team standings with 12 points.
