Additional Teams Make for Big Meet at DCST
In what was supposed to be a meet against Rockford, Belvidere and Streator, the Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team added two late additions, ILVY and BRRY to its meet on February 24th. We had 66 of our 86 participating swimmers go career best times and 118 of our 240 individual swims calculated out to 49% best times for the team.
The following swimmers had an outstanding meet with all of their individual swims resulting in best times:
Maia Clapp Duhau
Sam De La Cruz
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, Sammi Yee, age 11, and John Navis, age 7, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
