Stingray swimmers continue to improve

We are part of The Trust Project.

The Worthington YMCA Stingray swimmers saw several individual improvements last weekend in a meet with Albert Lea, Austin and Spencer, Iowa.

Nahili Butuje, Alfonso Esparza, Holly Fick, Gary Plotz and Aracelly Valle all improved in three events.

Swimmers improving in two events were Gatlin Bos, Carlos Esparza, Olivia Gerdes, Lance Gordon, Ibsinaf Gutama, Aria Khounin, Annabelle Kremerm Preston Kumi, Aiden Lichter, Hadlee Markus, Johanna Maurer, Liam McGraw, Kamea Obermoller, Brennly Plotz, Keegan Spittle, Simon Spittle, and Sophia Winter.

Head coach Donna Damm was happy with the results, noting that the farther the Stingrays advance into the season, the harder it is to improve on their times.

The team will compete in White Bear Lake on Saturday. The section meet is Feb. 4 in Mankato, and the state meet is Feb. 17 at the University of Minnesota pool in Minneapolis.
