DCST defeats Leaning Tower YMCA

 

DCST improved its dual meet record to 9 – 1 with a 429 – 303 victory of visiting Leaning Tower (Niles, IL) YMCA. As a team, DCST had 181 new career best individual swims (out of a possible 299 or 61%), including 14 first time district qualifying times, 6 new swims which surpassed the area qualifying time standard, and 1 new national qualifying time.
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, Jasmine Jewison, age 8, and Ty Ament, age 11, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
DCST had 41 swimmers who achieved life-time best swims in every individual event they swam on Saturday. These swimmers were as follows: Theresa Alef, Ty Ament, Autumn Baker, Paige Bjork, Owen Bockman, Palmer Bubb, Melissa Cherry, Emily Cook, Phillip Cutsinger, Shaye Dallman, Brett DeConinck, Carly Fischer, Allyson Foor, Madelyn Fuller, Daniel Hein, Sarah Hein, Jessica Howland, Maia Italia, Casey Jepsen, Jasmine Jewison, Logan Johnson, Tori Johnson, Cassandra Joyner, Emily Launer, Katie LeMieux, Jonathan Liu, Riley Lohse, Joelle Maish, Noah McGuire, Kailey Mulligan, Jason Ostenburg, Dylan Powers, Riley Regan, Sarah Robertson, Frank Rosas, Ryan Schultz, Trevor Simmons, Grace Stiberth, Mark Wanner, Jenni Weber, Jordan Weber, Athena Ye.
Next weekend, DCST will be hosting their 3-Day Winter Classic USS Meet. Every year, this is the meet where DCST will have more lifetime best times than any other meet during the year. It is an excellent opportunity for swimmers to achieve numerous District, Area, Age Group Championships and National Qualifying times.
