DCST Competes in Speedo Invitational
The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Aurora for a three-day invitational hosted by the Academy Bullets. We had 25 of our 33 swimmers who competed in the meet swim a career best time. It was a meet against some very tough competition where 79 of our 229 swims were career best times for an average of 34% for the meet.
Congratulations to Jacob Gramer and Noah Johnson on making their first Age Group State qualifying times!
After each meet, the coaching staff picks two swimmers, one girl and one boy, as the “Big Dogs” of the meet. Big Dogs are not only selected on their performance in the meet, but the coaches also take into consideration the swimmer’s practice attendance, work ethic, team spirit and sportsmanship. For this meet, Max Palacios, age 12, and Hannah Raetzke, age 11, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
