DCST Sweeps Ottawa, ILVY, Streator, Freeport And Dixon At ILVY


The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Peru, IL to take on Ottawa, ILVY, Streator, Freeport and Dixon in their first home meet of the season on October 20th.  DCST came out on top beating all five teams.  DCST swam well with 33 of our 44 swimmers who participated swimming career best times.   This accumulated to 58 of our 114 individual swims resulting in 51% career best times!  It was nice to travel to ILVY to get a preview of the District venue for our end of season team championship meet.


The following swimmers had outstanding meets swimming best times in all of their individual events:


Marlowe Billingsly

Adam Goelitz

Coleen Goff

Alissa Kocjan

Deegan Kocjan

Suzanna Lowery

Avelina McMurtry

Ali Ohlinger

Anna Robbins

Calvin VanderSchee



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, Anna Robbins, age 12, and Will Dukes, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
