DCST Sweeps Ottawa, ILVY And Kewanee In Home Opener
The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team hosted Ottawa, ILVY and Kewanee in their first home meet of the season on October 28th. DCST come out on top beating all three teams. DCST swam well with 57 of our 81 swimmers who participated swimming career best times. This accumulated to 107 of our 201 individual swims resulting in 53% career best times! It was nice to see a much higher number of DCST swimmers participating in this meet as we continue to build into the season.
The following swimmers had outstanding meets swimming best times in all of their individual events:
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, Isabella Martinez, age 11, and Noah Murcia, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
