The Severna Park Racquetball Stingrays swim team had a strong showing at the USA Swimming IMX Challenge in College Park in late January.
Swimmers earn entry to the challenge, which draws hundreds of swimmers from as far north as Maine and as far south as North Carolina, by accruing points throughout the winter season in five events. Nine- and 10-year-olds swim the 200 free, 100 back, 100 breast, 100 fly and 200IM; 11- and 12-year-olds swim the 500 free, 100 back, 100 breast, 100 fly and 200 IM.
The performances in the events throughout the meet combine for each swimmer’s total placement, and the Stingrays had several standouts win placement plaques for their efforts.
Caden Mahl placed third among 9-year-old boys, while Charlotte Hale placed 13th for 9-year-old girls. Court Barrett placed second among 10-year-old boys, while Lucy Feliz placed 13th among 10-year-old girls. Mary Feliz placed 14th among 13-year-old girls, and Eden Whiteman placed 17th for 14-year-old girls.
