DETROIT LAKES - This time around, no flu bug was going to hold freshman Quillan Oak back from qualifying for the Class 1A state swimming and diving meet.


The last two years, illness affected the Detroit Lakes swimming phenom, but this year, it wasn't a factor and Oak will be making his first appearance in the state meet in two events.

He will be joined by diving teammate sophomore Jon Melgaard, who will be making his second trip to the state diving meet.
