DCST Finishes 5th at David Wolf (Belvidere) Invite

DCST Finishes 5th at David Wolf (Belvidere) Invite

           On Sunday, January 6th, the Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team finished 5th at the David Wolf Invite hosted by Belvidere. As a team, DCST had a really successful meet with DCST’s 32 swimmers achieving 55 career best times out of 93 individual swims for a 59% improvement rate. DCST had 7 swims which were the first time a swimmer swam a new legal event. Furthermore, DCST had four swims which were 7 new first time district qualifying times.

Congratulations to the following 19 swimmers who had at least two best individual times at the meet:  Anthony Biundo, Kristina Biundo, Nathan Braun, Joanna Burnham, Celia Carpenter, Danny Cork, Kylie Cork, Sophie Cork, Anabelle Engleson, Maura Fisers, Morgan Fisers, Abbie Johnson, Grace Johnson, Joe Luetkehans, Mata Veronica, Nicole Skrzypek, Luke Veronda, David Wanner and Camryn Whitaker.

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, Sophie Cork, age 5, and Luke Veronda, age 11, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
