DCST Buries the Barracudas

DCST Buries the Barracudas

            The Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team (DCST) moved to 2 – 0 on the summer season with a 392 – 318 point victory at Cary.  As a team, DCST didn’t swim well with only 40 personal lifetime best times out of a total of a 154 swims for an improvement rate of 26%.

            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, Ella Johnson, age 12, and Matteo Graham, age 7, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

            The following 10 swimmers had an excellent meet with at least two best individual times in the meet:  Nina De La Cruz, Morgan Fisers, Matteo Graham, Cece Johnson, Ella Johnson, Savion Mack, Mitchel Meares, Grace Mielke, Aiden Page and Alex Schlueter.

            DCST will be competing on Friday, June 19 – Sunday, June 21 at the Champaign USA Meet.  DCST next full team meet will be an intra squad meet on Tuesday, June 23rd.
