The North St. John Super Swans opened their home season in style last week with a 301-182 win over the Freedom Dolphins.

High-point earners for the Swans were Jamie Featherer, Jonathan Lang, Melissa Maggio and Katie Nordhoff. Each won four blue ribbons.

Adam Cummins, Matthew Lang and Melissa McCarthy each earned triple blue ribbons.

A number of North St. John swimmers qualified for the Straehle Invitational Championship Meet to be held at Padonia. They were Cummins (individual medley, fly), Kelly Dodson (IM), Featherer (backstroke, breaststroke), Tim Koenig (freestyle), Jonathan Lang (IM, breast, free), Matthew Lang (IM), Maggio (IM, fly, breast), Kensey Morris (IM, fly, breast) and Nordhoff (IM).

* The Hammond Park Stingrays swam to 132 best times Saturday as they rolled over Roland Run, 270-214.

Chris Barker, Kristan Trinkaus, Bill Wessel and Joey Benedetti each swept through the competition, winning every race in which they were entered.

Benedetti had a day to remember, breaking the league record in the 8-under backstroke with a time of 19.09 seconds. His latest feat came on the heels of his two-record performance a week before.

But it took more than one record for the Stingrays to win the meet.

In all, seven swimmers recorded best times in all of their events. They were Brian Cassella, Neal Halloran, Randy Hill, Nicole Malczewski, Katie Reytar, Trinkaus and Brent Stewart.

For their efforts, Michele Pantuso, Kristan Loisel, Sean Pershey and Whitney Lewis were named "Stingrays of the Week."

The team also held its annual Swimathon-Sleepover on Saturday night. A portion of the money raised from the event will go to the Special Olympics.
