Battling Vinton-Shellsburg Tuesday night on the road, the Decorah boys swim team picked up a win, 75-19.
Decorah won all 11 events.
In the 200-yard freestyle, Will Yahr was the champion in 2:19.92. He came back later to win the 500-yard freestyle in 6:23.22, a win by 11 seconds.
Rjis Nesset took the 160-yard IM in 2:03.25, winning by over six seconds. He also won the 100-yard butterfly in 1:13.40. That victory was close as he just edged teammate Zach Kovarik by 0.38 seconds.
