DCST Finishes Regular Season 7 - 1

DCST Finishes Regular Season 7 – 1

 
            The Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team (DCST) finished their 2010 – 2011 regular season with a 7 – 1 dual meet record by defeating Rockford and Belvidere.  As a team, DCST had 128 personal lifetime best times out of a total of 256 swims for a 50% improvement rate.  DCST also had 5 individual swims which were first time District qualifying times, and 12 individual swims which were first time Area qualifying times.
            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, Jolie Keck, age 8, and Paul Ruetten, age 9, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
            The following 42 swimmers had at least two best individual times in the meet:  Ty Ament, Camryn Anderson, Tyler Berger, Jacob Bjork, Austin Bockman, Palmer Bubb, Preston Bubb, Ashley Crotteau, Mikaila DiCostanzo, Alyssa Ferrigan, Erin Fidler, Bailey Flemming, Grace Flemming, Madisyn Grever, Katie Hagaman, Hannah Hanks, Daniel Hein, Madeline Hockey Analiese Hudson, Jolie Keck, Mel LeBlanc, Riley Lohse, Joseph Lorr, Julia Luo, Flavi Michelini, Libby Mildner, Caitlynn Moon, Cole Moon, Collin Moon, Abby Oberg, Abby Pardridge, Dylan Powers, Elissa Roose, Chance Rose, Landon Rose, Paul Ruetten, Emilee Sichz, Nicole Skrzypek, Emily Stark, Andrew Tatum, Amanda Underwood, and Athena Ye.
            Tomorrow at the DCST Open will be the last chance for swimmers to achieve District Qualifying times.
