The Lockport YMCA Stingrays dive in to action this Saturday to open their 2014-15 swim season.

Head Coach Tim Menges, returning for his third season, welcomes back 12 State Meet qualifiers from last year's successful campaign: Gina Artieri, Mark Crocker, Madison Fragale, Elizabeth Kershaw, Luke Menges, Angelina Peruzzini, James Sacco, Jessica Sacco, Jack Strong, Elizabeth Swartz, Meghan Mietlicki, and Megan Tatro.

The Stingrays welcome 15 new families into the fold, with a total roster of 48 swimmers, ranging from 8-and-under to 18 years of age. The Stingrays feature swimmers from Lockport, Starpoint, and Desales.

"All of our swimmers, new and old, have worked very and come a long way in the last five weeks," Menges said. "Our goal this year is to have all swimmers reach their individual potentials, whether it is to swim a new stroke or distance, or to achieve a personal best time in their event."

The coach said he is looking to have even more swimmers qualify for the NYS YMCA State Meet to be held in Long Island this March.
