DCST Wins Pilgrim Plunge

DCST Wins Pilgrim Plunge

DCST easily won the first ever Pilgrim Plunge by 5,162 points over second place Rockford.  Over the weekend, DCST had 305 new lifetime career best times out of a total of 657 individual swims for an okay improvement percentage of 46%.

  • DCST had 61 first time swims which were legal in a new event for the swimmer.
  • DCST had 53 swims which were faster than the District Qualifying Time for the first time this season.
  • DCST had 28 swims which were faster than the State Qualifying Time for the first time this season.

With so many great swim, the coaching staff had a difficult time selecting only two Big Dogs of the Meet; therefore, we selected eight.  The Big Dogs of the Meet were:

  • Lou Dukes – Age 8
  • Aiden Page – Age 6
  • Nina De La Cruz – Age 10
  • Nick Johnson – Age 10
  • Georgia Harrelson – Age 11
  • Domenic Schlueter – Age 11
  • Emily Raetzke – Age 14
  • Theo Heilman – Age 14

        Congratulations to both the swimmers on their performances and the parents on running a great meet!  DCST’s next meet will be the Woodstock USA meet on December 4 – 6, and the next full team meet will be the Barb Wire Classic on December 13 – 14.
