DCST Swimmers Athena Ye and Nolan Fergus Set National Records
DCST Swimmers Athena Ye and Nolan Fergus have been credited with setting YMCA National Records. On March 22, at the IL YMCA State Championships, Athena set the National Record in the 50 yard Backstroke (26.48) for Girls Ages 11 – 12. On January 31, at the Joliet USA Meet, Nolan set the National Record in the 100 yard Butterfly (55.09) for Boys Ages 11 – 12. For all potential National Records, paperwork needs to be filed and approved by the National Committee; thus, the delay in announcing these records.
DCST currently now holds 4 National Records. The other two National Records are currently held by Daniel Hein in the Boys Ages 13 – 14 100 yard Backstroke (51.03) and 100 yard Butterfly (49.75).
