Sharks Devour DCST

Sharks Devour DCST

 

            A severely outmanned DCST lost its first meet of the season to Leaning Tower.  DCST only had 41 swimmers participate in the meet compared to Leaning Tower’s 133 swimmers.  This huge swimmer advantage showed up in Leaning Tower’s 420.5 – 259.5 scoring advantage.

On the positive side, the swimmers who did attend the meet performed extremely well.  Eighteen of DCST’s 41 swimmers had at least two career best times out of three total swims.  These swimmers were:  Dillon Anderson, Austin Bockman, Sadie Burton, Josh DeDina, Mikaila DiCostanzo, Grace Fergus, Nolan Fergus, Shane Fergus, Alyssa Ferrigan, Erin Fidler, Matthew Marchewka, Caitlynn Moon, Cole Moon, Collin Moon, Sarah Robertson, Elissa Roose and Amal Tatum.

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, Elissa Roose, age 9, and Nolan Fergus, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.  DCST is now 9 – 1 on the season.  DCST’s next meet is on February 6 at home against Oak Park.
