Farmington swimmers finish on the wrong side of a back-and-forth battle


Chanhassen won four of the final five events to separate from Farmington in an eventual 98-88 Missota Conference dual meet loss Thursday night at Dodge Middle School.

The score was tied at 0-0, 31-31, 39-39 and 55-55 before the visitors used a victory in the 500 freestyle to move ahead by two points. Chanhassen then turned in back-to-back 1-2 finishes in the 200 relay and 100 backstroke to pull away, 86-70.
