DCST Dunks the Dolphins

        DCST began its 2013 – 2014 winter season on a winning note by downing the Illinois Valley Dolphins by a score of 510.5 to 246.5.  As a team, DCST swam okay for the first meet of the season with 186 career best times out of a total of 344 swims for a 54% improvement rate.

            Seventy swimmers had a great meet with at least two career best times. These swimmers were:  Gavin Anderson, Ava Bickner, Callie Bickner, Emma Bloyd, Owen Bockman, Gabriella Bothe, Nathan Braun, Acelin Bruhl, Aidan Bruhl, Lillian Bruhl, Amanda Buck, Justin Buck, Maxwell Buck, Celia Carpenter, Emily Carpino, Madyson Casiano, Sophie Cork, Nina De La Cruz, Noah Dean, Riley Doyle, Mason Dukes, Quin Dukes, Trinity Eissens, Will Fabrizius, Cara Forsberg, Tommy Frayne, Kaitlyn Goff, Alex Grados, Jenna Hale, Evan Harrelson, Emma Heinisch, Magnus Keswani, Brooke Koehnke, Grace Kozlowski, Sarah Larson, Riley Lohse, Caroline Mackey, Holden Mackey, Spencer Mackey, Emily Mildner, Libby Mildner, Mason Miller, Lauren Murphy, Rebecca Nenonen, Nate Newlin, Abby Oberg, Mae Pemberton, Dylan Powers, Kyle Rasmussen, Jackson Shortridge, Riley Shortridge, Alexander Skrzypek, Nicole Skrzypek, Andrew Smith, Aubri Smith, Hunter Smith, Isiss Stuckey, Brendan Sullivan, Alyssa Swanson, Zoe Tikkun, Madison Underwood, Calvin VanderSchee, Abigail Wagner, Natalie Wagner, David Wanner, Ritta Wi, Asher Wiegartz, Aleida Wilkins, Colin Wunner and Catherine Zamora.

            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, Emma Heinisch, age 9, and Colin Wunner, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

          DCST’s next meet will be on Saturday, November 2 against the Sage YMCA (McHenry) and Green Count (WI) YMCA.
