The Portland Stingrays Swim Team finished fourth overall in their championship meet this past Saturday at Morgantown, Kentucky.

Two Portland swimmers -- Ella Cundiff in the girls 10-and-under age group and Maverick Houston in the boys 14-and-under category -- finished first in all their events.

The fourth-place finish was primarily due to a lack of numbers in the ranks.

"Even though we placed fourth overall, our team did really well. The other teams may have had more swimmers but our team did an incredible job," coach Nina Caverlee said. "I'm so proud of all of them, they definitely came to swim that day! Hopefully we can recruit more swimmers for next year. Ryan Caverlee helped me coach this year and he did a great job preparing them for our championship meet."

Two of the Stingrays boys, Brody Brummett and Brayden Turner were unable to swim the meet.
