The St. Michael-Albertville boys’ swim/dive team kicked off the 2012-13 season with a second-place finish at last Saturday’s Hutchinson Invitational.
The Knights total of 377 points was a distant second to the top score of 608 points put up by defending Class A and 11-time state champion St. Thomas Academy.
Eight teams participated in the invite including Breck/Blake, who finished third to the Cadets at state last season. Individual results were unavailable.
Thursday night at 6 p.m. the Knights will be at the Mississippi 8 Conference Relay Meet at Princeton High School.
Next Tuesday will be their first dual meet of the season when they travel to Orono.
