The Bemidji Lumberjacks stepped away from the conventional meet format Thursday to take top honors at a triangular with Moorhead and Fargo South at the Aquatics Center.
Using a number of college events in place of the usual high school distances, Bemidji piled up 117 points to 107 for Moorhead and 97 for South.
The meet was scored to six place with double scores for relays with teams allowed to score only two in each event.
The Jacks host Park Rapids Thursday and compete at the Hibbing Invitational Saturday in their next two starts.
