Prep report: Section swimming on tap
Duluth East senior Ryan Zelen has the best time among Northland swimmers in seven different events.
Zelen will only be able to compete in two individual events at this week's Section 7AA meet, but he is the Greyhounds' best bet to qualify for the state meet in whatever races he competes in. He finished third and fifth, respectively, in the Class AA 50 and 100 freestyles a year ago.
Julien Yung and Grant Wodny are other section contenders for East.
The 7AA meet begins with preliminaries Thursday night at Northdale Middle School in Coon Rapids. Finals are Saturday.
The Section 6A meet begins at 5 p.m. Thursday in Grand Rapids.
