Lindsey Merk is a senior at Lockport Township. She placed sixth in the 100-yard butterfly on Nov. 23 in the state finals. It was her fifth medal, a new standard for the Porters girls swimming team.

You became the first swimmer in LTHS history — boys or girls — to medal at state for four-straight seasons. How does that feel?

It hasn’t sunk in yet that I’m never going to swim on a Lockport team again. I’m going to miss it. But yes, I will always enjoy seeing my name up there [on the record board].
