DCST Falls To Sage And Tops Hastings Lake
The Kishwaukee YMCA/Dekalb County Swim Team traveled to Sage on October 12th where most of the participating swimmers had their first meet of the season and some had the first meet of their career. DCST had 53 swimmers participate in the meet and 40 of those 53 went career best times. We had 70 of our 144 swims that were career best times for a best time percentage of 49%! With the exception of the Bulldog/National groups, the DCST swimmers had only been back in the water for two weeks of practice so we are still early in the process of getting everyone back into peak form.
The following swimmers swam all of their individual swims in career 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, Emma Bloyd, age 11, and Kevin Sullivan, age 12, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
