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, Ava Bloyd, age 6, and Brendan Sullivan, age 13, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
