Ste. Genevieve was one of three teams during Saturday’s competition, and the Stingrays set another milestone in a season brimming with historic accomplishments.
Ste. Genevieve had nearly 70 finishes in the top three, and the Stingrays set a program record in single-meet points with 766 at co-host Farmington.
“This week was filled with excitement,” said Ste. Genevieve head coach Erin Brown. “We took 36 out of 40 swimmers to the Farmington Meet. We took 11 relays and 128 individual events. That’s big for a small team like ours. We were hoping to pass Farmington in points for a third-place spot overall, but they dominated us in numbers of swimmers. It’s time to grow this team again.”
The Stingrays’ highlights included 30 wins, 23 second-place finishes and 15 finishes in third place. Ste. Genevieve’s points were good enough for a runner-up finish. Farmington had 1050.5 points to win the meet, while Poplar Bluff scored 468.5 for third place to round out the team standings.
