DCST has 564 Career Best Times at Winter Classic Meet

DCST has 564 Career Best Times at Winter Classic Meet

        At the DCST Winter Classic meet, DCST had 564 individual career best times out of a total of 1057 individual swims for an improvement rate of 53%.  This included DCST swimmers swimming a new event legally for the first time in their career 77 times.  DCST won the meet by 3,523.5 points over second place Elgin.  DCST also bolstered its chances for an outstanding YMCA Championship season with 57 swims which achieved a YMCA qualifying time standard for the first time this year (25 District Times, 30 State Times and 2 National Times).

        DCST’s last two regular season meets of the year will be in two weeks on March 1 and March 2.  After these two meets, DCST will begin the Championship Meet Season.

With so many great swims, the coaching staff had a difficult time selecting only two Big Dogs of the Meet; therefore, we selected eight. The Big Dogs of the meets were as follows:  Zoe Tikkun (7), Evan Harrelson (7), Sarah Larson (10), Asher Wiegartz (9), Elina Keswani (12), Maxwell Buck (11), Grace Johnson (13) and Justin Buck (14).
