DCST Finishes 3rd at Early Bird Invite

DCST Finishes 3rd at Early Bird Invite

        DCST finished in 3rd place at the Early Bird Invite hosted by the YMCA of Rock River Valley (Rockford).  As a team, DCST swam pretty well with 37 career best times out of a total of 79 individual swims for a 52% improvement rate. DCST had 1 swim which achieved the District Qualifying and 1 swim which achieved the Area Qualifying time for the first time.

            A total of 14 swimmers had a great meet with at least two career best times. These swimmers were:  Kyleigh Allen, Matt Allen, Anthony Biundo, Kristina Biundo, Nathan Braun, Timothy Braun, Maxwell Buck, Danny Cork, Quin Cynor, Bella De La Cruz, Trinity Eissens, Grace Flemming, Tommy Frayne and Riley Wiegartz.

            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, Kyleigh Allen, age 12, and Timothy Braun, age 12, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

          DCST will be in action again next Saturday with a triangular meet against Rock River Valley (Rockford) and Freeport in Rockford.
