Lindsey Merk has already etched her name in the Lockport record book. She’s won five state medals in her first three seasons as a Porter, the most in school history. Now, as a senior, she’s looking forward to one more run to the state finals in her two main events, the 100-yard backstroke and the 100-yard butterfly.

Even though she was not 100 percent, she tuned up for the sectional with a pair of conference championships at the SouthWest Suburban Conference meet held Saturday, Nov. 2, at Lincoln-Way Central.
