DCST Out Swims TOPS and LEAN

DCST Out Swims TOPS and LEAN

        At a home triangular meet, DCST easily defeat visiting Oak Park and Leaning Tower (Niles).  DCST is now 6 – 1 on the season.  As a team, DCST swam better than we did in the last couple of meets with 212 career best times out of a total of 363 swims for a 58% improvement rate. Moreover, 44 of these swims were a new event legally swum by a DCST swimmer for the first time in their career. DCST also had 29 swims which achieved the District Qualifying, and 11 swims which achieved the State Qualifying time for the first time.

            Sixty-eight swimmers had a great meet with at least two career best times. These swimmers were:  Franz Allendorfer, Serena Allendorfer, Owen Bockman, Gabriella Bothe, Lillian Bruhl, Preston Bubb, Joanna Burnham, Celia Carpenter, Emily Carpino, Danny Cork, Kylie Cork, Noah Dean, Mason Dukes, Anabelle Engleson, Maura Fisers, Grace Flemming, Serena Goelitz, Kaitlyn Goff, Jacob Gramer, Teresa Gramer, Jenna Hale, Megan Hale, Adrianne Hall, Georgia Harrelson, Kylee Heck, Ethan Heilman, Theo Heilman, Sarah Hein, Emma Heinisch, Ethan Heinrich, Abbie Johnson, Grace Johnson, Noah Johnson, Magnus Keswani, Grace Kozlowski, Sarah Larson, Megan LeBlanc, Julia Luo, Madelyn Maxwell, Rachel Maxwell, Josephine McMahon, Ana Flavia Michelini, Emily Mildner, Mason Miller, Angel Navarrete, Abby Oberg, Kylie Olson, Abby Pardridge, Dane Pardridge, Carson Rose, Bradley Ruetten, David Ruetten, Paul Ruetten, Bella Schmerbach, Jackson Shortridge, Riley Shortridge, Nicole Skrzypek, Gabi Smith, Libby Swedberg, Andrew Tatum, Calvin VanderSchee, Anna Westhoff, Elizabeth White, Riley Wiegartz, Morgan Williams, Kiki Wittenberg, Colin Wunner and Miranda Zhang.

            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 Schmerbach, age 8, and Theo Heilman, age 12, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

          Next weekend, DCST will travel to Oak Park for a 3 day USA meet, and DCST’s next tri-meet will be the following Saturday (Feb 8) against Fox Valley and Hastings Lake.
