DCST Falls To Sage and ELY
The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Sage on October 14th where most of the participating swimmers had their first meet of the season. Only 29 DCST swimmers participated in the meet but 20 of those 29 went career best times. We had 41 of our 76 swims that were career best times for a best time percentage of 54%! With the exception of the Bulldog/National groups, the DCST swimmers had only been back in the water for two weeks of practice so we are still early in the process of getting everyone back into peak form.
The following swimmers swam all of their individual swims in career best 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, Anna Fell, age 11, and Aydan Dunne, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
