Firecracker Meet Produces Explosive Swims

 

Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to the University of Chicago for the Midway Firecracker Open. DCST had 29 swimmers compete in the meet and 27 of the 29 had at least one best time!  We had 164 individual swims of which 116 were career best times for an average of 71% for the entire meet!  It was a great performance for the entire group.

 

The following swimmers had career best times in all of their events at the meet:

 

Gage Helfrich

Hannah Raetzke

Brendan Sullivan

Kevin Sullivan

Calvin VanderSchee

Jared VanderSchee

 

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, Emma Bloyd, age 10, and Matteo Graham, age 10, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
