YMCA Stingrays dominate at state meet

Several state records are broken by 2013-14 Lockport team



In the 13-14 year old division, Lockport’s Katie Pollock won the 100 free, had a second in the 50 free and set a state record in the 50 freestyle, leading off the 200 free relay with a split time of 24.54 seconds. 
The Stingrays’ 200 free relay, made up of Pollock, Megan Tatro, Jessica Sacco and Meghan Mietlicki, finished fifth overall and these same girls finished seventh in the 200 medley relay.
Other notable top 10 finishes were Anne Marie Aber with a 10th in the 200 freestyle in the 11-12 division and Jessica Sacco with a seventh overall finish in the 100 breaststroke in the 13-14 division.
Competing for the last time as a member of the Lockport Stingrays was Lyle Wagner in the 15-18 division. Wagner was 10th in the state in 100 yard butterfly. While not being the most vocal member on the team, Wagner’s work ethic in the pool was second to none and was a role model to the younger members on the team, his coaches said.
Last week, the Lockport Town and Country Club hosted the YMCA’s team banquet with more than 150 people attending showing their support for the team. 
Earning team honors this year as being “Most Improved” were Madison Fragale and Jack Strong and the “Stingray Award” which is given to the swimmers who have shown the dedication, drive, determination, and sportsmanship to be the best were Megan Tatro and Aidan Morgan.
Thirty nine teams featuring more than 3,400 youth swimmers from across the state participated in this year’s state YMCA meet.
