DCST Wins Early Bird Invite

DCST Wins Early Bird Invite

        DCST won the Early Bird Invite hosted by the YMCA of Rock River Valley (Rockford).  DCST finished ahead of second place Sage (McHenry County) by 151 points (407 – 256).  As a team, DCST swam just okay with 39 career best times out of a total of 95 swims for a 41% improvement rate. DCST had 1 swim which achieved the District Qualifying and 5 swims which achieved the Area Qualifying time for the first time.

            A total of 12 swimmers had a great meet with at least two career best times. These swimmers were:  Kristina Biundo, Maxwell Buck, Grace Flemming, Anthony Gutierrez, Abbie Johnson, Grace Johnson, Riley Lohse, Collin Moon, Dylan Rasmussen, David Ruetten, Amanda Underwood and Abigail Wagner.

            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, Abigail Wagner, age 12, and Max Buck, age 12, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

          DCST will be in action again next Saturday with a triangular meet against Rock River Valley (Rockford) and Freeport in Rockford.
