Detroit Lakes sophomore Quillan Oak had a bit of a bittersweet surprise when he was preparing for the Section 3-1A meet, held inside the BTD Aquatics Center last Friday and Saturday.


After finishing as the Class 1A state runner-up in the 100-yard breaststroke to Fergus Falls' Mike Hurley last year, Oak will not have a chance for a rematch after the Otter -- who is in Section 3-1A as well -- opted for the butterfly instead this year.
