DCST takes the River Rats down

 

June  7, 2017

 

The Kishwaukee YMCA / DeKalb County Swim Team (DCST) won its first dual meet of the season with a 412 - 298 point victory over the visiting Geneva River Rats on Tuesday, June 6th.  As a team, DCST swam okay with 85 personal lifetime best times out of a total of a 237 individual swims.

            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, Maddy Fitch (age 15) and Andrew Martinez (age 5), were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.

            The following 29 swimmers had an excellent meet with at least two best individual times in the meet:   Isabella Martinez, Ana Hall, Sean Harrelson, Ava Karolewicz, Max Placios, Calvin VanderShee, Brendan Sullivan, Nicole Fitch, Alex Taylor, Andrew Martinez, Deegan Kocjan, Sophia Martinez, Ava Wilkins, Maddy Fitch, Caleb Vosika, Asher Larson, Miranda Zhang, AJ Sager, Reese Green, Aiden Page, Justin Wu, Alissa Kocjan, Emma Bloyd, Ethan Welch, Camila Placios, Aydan Dunne, Luke Oland, Angelica Sanyal, and Sammi Yee.
