  • Nina De La Cruz – Age 9
  • David Wanner – Age 10
  • Adrianne Hall – Age 12

        Congratulations to both the swimmers on their performances and the parents on running a great meet!  With DCST’s next full team meet not until the David Wolf Invitational in Belvidere on January 4th, we hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Even though there are no meets for the next three weeks, this is a great time for training, learning new strokes and improving mechanics.  So please make sure to keep up your practice attendance during the Holiday Season.
