DCST Competes in Bullets Invitational
The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Aurora for a three-day invitational hosted by the Academy Bullets. We had 25 of our 28 swimmers who competed in the meet swim a career best time. It was a meet against some very tough competition where 106 of our 224 swims were career best times for an average of 47% for the meet.
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, Kate Farrell, age 10, and Gage Helfrich, age 10, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
