Fond du Lac’s Cameron Van Beek came within four-tenths of a second of pulling off a win in the 500-yard freestyle but had to settle for second place at the Fox Valley Association swimming and diving meet on Saturday.

Van Beek finished just a whisper behind Manny Hernandez of Appleton North/East in the race, while also picking up a third-place finish in the 200-yard freestyle.

Riley Pankratz added a third place in the 100-yard backstroke and was fifth in the 50-yard freestyle for the Cardinals, who also placed fourth in two of the three relays.

Fond du Lac finished fourth in the meet, which was won by Appleton North/East.
