Long Course Season Continues At Firecracker Meet

 

Long Course Season Continues At Firecracker Meet

 

The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team had its second long course meet of the year at the University of Chicago for the Midway Firecracker meet. We had 37 of our 39 participating swimmers go career best times and 156 of our 217 individual swims were best times which calculated out to an outstanding 72% best times for the team!

 

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

 

Kristina Biundo

Mikenna DeSpain

Daniel Golonka

Evan Harrelson

Gage Helfrich

Max Palacios

Isabella Rojo

Alex Skrzypek

Kevin Sullivan

 

 

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, Mikenna DeSpain, age 11, and Evan Harrelson, age 13, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
