DCST Loses 2nd Straight
DCST Loses 2nd Straight
            On Thursday, July 1, DCST fell to 3 – 2 on the summer season with a 412 – 237 thumping at McHenry. Just like the meet two nights prior, DCST had a low swimmer turnout with only 38 swimmer entered in the meet compared to McHenry’s 79. To make matter worse, DCST only had 29 career best times out of a total of 97 individual swims for a 30% improvement rate.
            The following 10 swimmers did have a great meet with at least two career best times: Marcus Bobo, Mikaela Dumas, Grace Flemming, Madisyn Grever, Toni LeBlanc, Cokie LeBlanc, Megan LeBlanc, Spencer Mackey, Jenna Runde, and Athena Ye.
            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, Madisyn Grever, age 10, and Spencer Mackey, age 8, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
