DCST Finishes 3rd at David Wolf (Belvidere) Invite

DCST Finishes 3rd at David Wolf (Belvidere) Invite

           On Sunday, January 5th, the Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team finished 3rd at the David Wolf Invite hosted by Belvidere. As a team, DCST was a little off by only achieving 44 career best times out of 127 individual swims for a 35% improvement rate.  DCST had 5 swims which were first time district qualifying times.

Congratulations to the following 12 swimmers who had at least two best individual times at the meet:  Celia Carpenter, Bella De La Cruz, Mason Dukes, Maura Fisers, Donny Gramer, Jenna Hale, Sara Johnson, Rebecca Nenonen, Jackson Shortridge, Nicole Skrzypek, Calvin VanderSchee and David Wanner.

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, Bella De La Cruze, age 11, and Calvin VanderSchee, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
