DCST Stings the Rays

            The Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team (DCST) won its last dual meet of the summer season by a score of 462 – 241 over the visiting Rockford Rays.  DCST finished the season with a 4 – 2 dual meet record.  As a team, DCST had a decent meet with 108 personal lifetime best times out of a total of 265 swims for an improvement rate of 41%.

            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, Abbie Johnson, age 8, and Kyle Rasmussen, age 9, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

            The following 33 swimmers had an excellent meet with at least two best individual times in the meet:  Ty Ament, Camryn Anderson, Austin Bockman, Michael Carlson, Krissy Cutsinger, Mikaila DiCostanzo, Anabelle Engleson, Tessa Federici, Grace Flemming, Roman Friedrichs, Sabrina Groce, Katie Hagaman, Gregory Harrelson, Sarah Hein, Ethan Heinrich, Abbie Johnson, Grace Johnson, Jack Keck, Will Luetkehans, Rachel Maxwell, Abby Oberg, Abby Pardridge, Dylan Rasmussen, Kyle Rasmussen, David Ruetten, Ryan Schultz, Tyler Schultz, Charlie Sichz, Emilee Sichz, Nicole Skrzypek, Josh Smith, Noah Wester, and Riley Wiegartz.

            DCST’s next full team meet is the NCISC “A” Conference Championships on Saturday, July 16 at the Kishwaukee YMCA.  DCST is looking to claim its 11th consecutive conference title.
