Trails Lead DCST to Defeat

Trails Lead DCST to Defeat

            The Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team (DCST) lost their first dual meet of the season 346 – 336 at the Trails of Algonquin.  As a team, DCST had only 45 personal lifetime best times out of a total of 127 swims for a 35% improvement rate.

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, Katherine Albano, age 11, and Timothy Braun, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

            The following 14 swimmers had at least two best individual times in the meet:  Katherine Albano, Nathan Braun, Timothy Braun, Joanna Burnham, Anabelle Engleson, Morgan Fisers, Holden Mackey, Spencer Mackey, Matthew Marchewka, Abby Oberg, Paul Ruetten, Nicole Skrzypek, Libby Swedberg and Noah Wester.
