            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, Miriam Heilman, age 11, and Rylan Smith, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

            The following 14 swimmers had an excellent meet with at least two best individual times in the meet:   Kristina Biundo, Nathan Braun, Timothy Braun, Robert Carpenter, Quinn Cynor, Catie Haub, Miriam Heilman, Grace Johnson, Hannah Raetzke, Julia Rasmussen, Rylan Smith, Emily Stark, Ritta Wi and Aleida Wilkins.

            DCST’s next full team dual meet is at home on Tuesday, July 1 verses Huntley.
