DCST Gobbles Up Competition at Turkey Shoot
The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Byron for a two-day invitational for a strong finish against good competition. We had 47 of our 48 swimmers who competed in the meet swim a career best time. Overall it was a good meet in which 141 of our 290 swims were career best times for an average of 49% for the meet.
The following swimmers had an outstanding meet with all of their individual swims resulting in best times:
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, Kaylie Simms, age 10, and Hunter Smith, age 14, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
