DCST Travels To Compete Against Ottawa And ILVY


The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Peru, IL to take on Ottawa and ILVY at our first away meet of the season on November 20th. DCST swam well with 25 of our 44 swimmers who participated swimming career best times. This accumulated to 36 of our 89 individual swims resulting in 40% career best times. It was nice to travel to ILVY to get a preview of the District venue for our end of season team championship meet.


The following swimmers had outstanding meets swimming best times in all of their individual events:


Stella Anderson

William Evans

Gage Helfrich

Brooklyn Washkowiak


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, Brooklyn Washkowiak, age 8, and Jackson Rouse, age 9, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
