Things are starting to heat up for Coach Tim Menges' Lockport YMCA Stingrays as they enter a much busier second half of their season.

Nov. 22, the Stingrays traveled to North Tonawanda High School to take on the Ken-Ton Y Cobras. Many familiar names were once again triple winners in their individual events for Lockport. Gina Artieri (200 Free, 100 Back, & 500 Free), Elizabeth Swartz (50 Back, 200 Free, & 100 IM), Mark Crocker (50 Back, 50 Free & 200 IM), Luke Menges (50 Back, 100 IM & 50 Free), Madison Fragale (100 Free, 50 Free & 50 Breast), and Aiden Moran (25 Fly, 25 Free & 50 Free) all continued their domination in the pool.

Lockport's Michael Marker  gets set on the
blocks for his 50 Free.
However, in addition to their regular all-stars, the Stingrays continue to see their remaining swimmers improving week to week. Eric Artieri touched first in two of his Freestyle heats. Samantha Madden sped to new times in all three of her events (200 Free, 50 Free, & 100 Breast). Gena Rising flew to a strong lead leg in the 200 Medley Relay, while at the same time posting a personal best time in the 100 Free. Riley Adams looked strong in two new events for her (200 IM & 50 Free), and Emma Vought set a personal best time for herself in the 50 Breast.

Other first place finishers for the Stingrays were: Megan Tatro (200 Free & 100 Back), Zackary Santarsiero (100 Free & 25 Back), Angelina Peruzzini (200 IM), Henry Genewick (100 IM), Ava Conklin (25 Free), Sam Murphy (50 Breast), Jenna Bull (50 Breast), Elizabeth Kershaw (50 Free), Meghan Mietlicki (100 Free), Ethan Menges (100 Free), Olivia Larson (50 Back), and Ava Thompson (25 Breast).

Emma Vought finishes strong for a personal best in the 50 Breast.
