Men's Swimming - Alex Strom, Sophomore, Plymouth, Minn./Wayzata

Strom played a key role in helping the Blugolds to a 123-117 victory over UW-La Crosse on Saturday. He was fifth in the 200-yard IM, but then had to swim the 500-yard freestyle and come back one event later to swim the 200-yard breaststroke. The team needed Strom to get at least fourth in the 500 free to help the cause, and he took third and followed with a second place finish in the 200 breaststroke. His strong swims helped set the Blugolds up for the win as the Blugolds’ 800-yard freestyle relay team won the final event of the day to edge the Eagles.
