DCST Travels To Rockford To Sting The Rays


The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Rockford to compete in a dual meet against the Rays.  It was a closely contested meet in which the Big Dogs came out on top with a score of 796 to 755.  We had 37 of our 47 participating swimmers go career best times and 59 of our 118 individual swims calculated out to 50% best times for the team.  It was nice to see our participation numbers go up at an away meet and we are hoping to see those number continue to climb as the season progresses.


The following swimmers had an outstanding meet with all of their individual swim resulting in best times:


Emma Bloyd

Timothy Braun

Nicole Fitch

Donovan Gooden

Gregory Harrelson

Evan Johnson

Wade Lyles

Ethan Welch

Lydia Zeitler


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, Gianna Gooden, age 10, and Matteo Graham, age 10, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
