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, Sophie Jones, age 10, and Nicholas Lockhart, age 7, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
DCST’s next full team meet is our
Barb Wire Invitational on Saturday, December 13. Everyone is
highly encouraged to attend this event. For our rookies, this
will be their first chance at swimming in an invitational.
With a 5 week break between meets, the DCST Coaching Staff is
expecting many big time drops at this meet. Swimmers who have
yet to swim a legal breaststroke or butterfly swim in a meet are
highly encouraged to use this time period to make their strokes
legal in these events. The coaching staff would like to have
as many of these swimmers swim their first legal swims in
these events at the Barb Wire.
