Swim Team at Finals

The Stingray Swim Team had members qualify for the Championship meet held in Oxford, NE on July 15, 2023.

Katie Ledecky said it best when she said “It's always great to see young swimmers and their excitement and the joy that they have in the water.” Our Kensington Stingrays demonstrated their passion and commitment at their Championship Meet. Only the top twelve in the league got to swim today in Oxford and our group represented well! Some may not have had their best day but they were there and they gave it their all! Can’t wait to see what they accomplish next season.

Way to turn and burn Lexi Rust, KensLy Blank, Zoey Hadley, Adam Abbott, Ali Hadley, Justin Abbott, Anne Abbott and Amy Abbott. Not many could do what you do!

Huge thank you to Anne Abbott for coaching the team this season and for everything that is involved in making the Stingrays possible!

The relay team - Lexi, KensLy, Adam and Justin Abbott- placed 2nd.
