In the last home meet of the season for the Lockport Y Stingrays, many fans were curious to see Megan Tatro competing in the 200 Freestyle on her back. It wasn't a mistake, it was merely Tatro qualifying for yet another stroke in the State Championships.

Even though the State includes the 200 Backstroke as a Championship race, most meets do not offer the event. Therefore, the rules allow a swimmer to swim a different stroke in the Freestyle events. Tatro took full advantage, posting an impressive State qualifying time of 2:27:49, which gives her another event, besides the 100 Backstroke, to swim at States.

Mark Croker continues to improve upon his times in his State qualified events, touching first in the 200 IM, 50 Fly, and 50 Back.  Jessica Sacco did the same in the 50 Free and 100 Free, while also notching a first place finish in the 100 Breast.  Riley Adams also punched her ticket to States with a victory in the 100 Fly.

The Menges brothers posted a banner day with first place finishes across the board. Ethan Menges was victorious in the 200 IM, 50 Free and 100 Free; while younger brother Luke took gold in the 50 Back, 100 IM, and the 50 Free.

Other first place finishers for the Stingrays were:  Gina Artieri (200 Free & 500 Free), Sam Murphy (200 Free & 50 Free), Laurel Creamer (25 Back), Ramsey Ross (100 Free), Ryan Santarsiero (200 Free), Madison Fragale (100 IM), Ava Thompson (100 IM & 25 Breast), Elizabeth Swartz (50 Free), Ava Conklin (25 Free & 50 Free), Savanah Pencillle (100 Fly), Angelina Peruzzini (50 Fly), and Jack Strong (50 Fly & 100 Free).

The Stingrays travel to Clifton Springs for their final meet of the regular season before starting to gear up for the District and State Championships.
