DCST Looks for Improved Placing at Area Meet


DCST Looks for Improved Placing at Area Meet
                After a strong showing in their District Championship Meet, DCST is looking to improve in the team standings from a year ago at the IL / MO Area Championships.
The Girls Area Championship Meet will be on Saturday, March 7. A year ago in this meet, DCST finished fourth in a close race behind Northwest Dupage (BRRY), Edwardsville (EDWY) and Tri City Area (TCAY). This year DCST, looks to move up and challenge for the top spot with a significant increase in entries in the Area Meet from one year ago. In 2008, DCST had 24 female swimmers qualify for the meet in 47 individual events and 8 relays. This year’s DCST girl squad is much larger and stronger with 32 swimmers in 67 individual events and all 10 relays.
On Sunday, March 8, the Boys will be trying to avenge two consecutive second place finishes to Edwardsville (EDWY). Like the girls meet, DCST figures to give EDWY a run for the top spot this year with an increase in their Area Meet entries. This year, DCST has 28 boys in 50 individual events and 9 relays compared to last year’s total of 21 swimmers in 36 events and 8 relays.
Later this week, we expect to find out how DCST’s entries compare to the other top teams in the IL / MO Area when the entry lists are posted by the host team.
