MADISON, Wisconsin, March 1. ARROWHEAD dethroned the defending champions at the Wisconsin Men's Division I Championships by the smallest of margins, defeating Madison Memorial by one point.
Arrowhead's tight race for fourth in the 400 freestyle relay proved to be the nail in the coffin for the Madison Memorial men with the final score reading 217-216. Marquette University took third with 181 points.

Lagerhausen fell just short of Kyle Bubolz's 2004 state mark in the 50 freestyle (21.47), winning the event nonetheless in 20.51. Lagerhausen notched win No. 2 on the weekend when he clocked a 45.12 100 freestyle.
