DCST Falls at ILVY

DCST Falls at ILVY

Despite a 132 – 69 swimmer deficit and swimming on the road, DCST gave Illinois Valley (ILVY) a very close contest as they fell 385 – 361 in their first dual meet of the season.  As a team, DCST swam okay for the first meet of the season with 96 career best times out of a total of 188 swims for a 51% improvement rate.

            36 swimmers had a great meet with at least two career best times. These swimmers were:  Joanna Burnham, Sadie Burton, Danny Cork, Noah Dean, Anabelle Engleson, Ava Farrell, Jack Farrell, Erin Fidler, Maura Fisers, Grace Flemming, Madisyn Grever, Anthony Gutierrez, Jenna Hart, Emma Heinisch, Ethan Heinrich, Abbie Johnson, Grace Johnson, Noah Johnson, Carson Klein, Brooke Koehnke, Colette LeBlanc, Veronica Mata, Jamisan Matalonis, Flavi Michelini, Abby Oberg, Bradley Ruetten, David Ruetten, Paul Ruetten, Avery Scott, Nicole Skrzypek, Libby Swedberg, Amanda Underwood, Abigail Wagner, Natalie Wagner, Madison Williams and Kiki Wittenberg.

            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, Jenna Hart, age 8, and Danny Cork, age 10, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

          DCST’s first home meet of the will be on Saturday, November 3 against the Sage YMCA (McHenry).
