DCST Finishes 2nd at David Wolf (Belvidere) Invite

DCST Finishes 2nd at David Wolf (Belvidere) Invite

           On Sunday, January 4th, the Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team finished 2nd at the David Wolf Invite hosted by Belvidere. As a team, DCST was a little off by only achieving 51 career best times out of 152 individual swims for a 34% improvement rate.  DCST had 2 swimmers who swam a new event legally for the first time, and DCST had 5 swims which achieved the district qualifying time for the first time in their careers.

Congratulations to the following 12 swimmers who had at least two best individual times at the meet:  Kristina Biundo, Robert Carpenter, Sophia Cork, Sam De La Cruz, Anabelle Engleson, Brayden Goff, Jenna Hale, Evan M. Johnson, Noah Johnson, Emily Raetzke, Kevin Sullivan and Calvin VanderSchee.

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, Jenna Hale, age 13, and Noah Johnson, age 9, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
