DCST has 553 Career Best Times at Winter Classic Meet

DCST has 553 Career Best Times at Winter Classic Meet

At the DCST Winter Classic meet, DCST had 553 individual career best times out of a total of 976 individual swims for an improvement rate of 57%.  This included DCST swimmers swimming a new event legally for the first time in their career 112 times.  DCST won the meet by 3,512.5 points over second place Elgin.  DCST also bolstered its chances for an outstanding YMCA Championship season with 30 swims which achieved a YMCA qualifying time standard for the first time this year (21 District Times, 7 Area Times and 2 National Times).

With so many great swims, the coaching staff had a difficult time selecting only two Big Dogs of the Meet; therefore, we selected eight. The Big Dogs of the meets were as follows:  Emily Mildner (7), Jack Keck (7), Aleida Wilkins (10), Matt Slider (10), Elissa Roose (11), Joe Luetkehans (11), Grace Stiberth (13) and Carson Rose (15).

          The following 73 swimmers had a phenomenal meet with a better than 50 percent improvement rate in their individual swims:
