DCST National Results - Day 1

DCST National Results – Day 1

        On the first day of the YMCA National Championships in Greensboro, NC, DCST had 2 National All-Americans and set 4 new team records.  Both Daniel Hein and Caitlynn Moon earned National All-American honors for finishing 9th in the 100 yard Backstroke and 1000 yard Freestyle, respectively.

        In prelims, Daniel finished 14th.  He then dropped 0.55 seconds from his morning swim to win his heat in finals.  He also lowered his team record in the 13 – 14 year old Boys age group by half a second.  This was the first time Daniel has been named a National All-American in an individual event.  He previously had been named an All-American in a relay event.

        For Caitlynn, this was the 11th time she has been named a National All-American.  Caitlynn’s performance was also a new team record.  By going a whopping 20 seconds faster than her seed time, she broke the previous record by 8 seconds.

        In the 200 yard Breaststroke, Ryan Schultz (1.4 second time improvement) and Jacob Bjork (1.6 second time improvement) had super swims.  Jacob’s time was new team record for the 13 – 14 year old Boys.  Setting DCST’ other new team record (13 – 14 yard old Girls) was Kylie Olson with her 0.7 seconds time improvement in the 100 yard Backstroke.
