Prognosis for this year

    We are excited about the 2018 swim season.  Brainerd will once again compete in section 8AA along with St. Cloud Tech, Moorhead, Elk River, Buffalo, St. Michael/Albertville, Maple Grove and Rogers.  This is a very competitive section as all of these schools have strong swimming programs. St. Michael-Albertville is the five time defending champion and are favored to win again this year.

    The Warriors are coming off a one loss season finishing second to Sartell in the Central Lakes Conference.  The Central Lakes Conference is balanced again this year. Sartell is once again the favorites to defend their championships.  Brainerd will be pushed by St. Cloud Tech, Alexandria and Sauk Rapids and for the runner up spot.
