2017 IL MDWY Firecracker Open

2017 IL Midway Firecracker Open was held on June 23rd through the 25th.  DCST was represented by 19 swimmers ranging in age from our 8 year old swimmer to our 22 year old swimmer.    The reports I have heard were that it was a very nice facility and a fun meet to attend.  Maybe we can try again next year to send even more swimmers.
