Bianca Fant – Age 5
Noah McGuire – Age 8
Alyssa Ferrigan – Age 10
Tyler Schultz – Age 10
Riley Regan – Age 11
Logan Johnson – Age 12
Drake Burger – Age 14
Tori Johnson – Age 14
 
Congratulations to both the swimmers on their great performances and the parent group for running a first rate meet. With DCST’s next meet not until after New Year, we hope everyone has a Happy Holiday Season. Event thought there are no meets for the next three weeks; this is a great time for training and learning new strokes and mechanics. DCST will be offering practices, and everyone his highly encouraged to attend.
