DCST Wins Tri Meet
DCST Wins Tri Meet
 
DCST moved to 4 – 0 on the season with wins over Rockford and Freeport. As a team, DCST had 119 new career best individual swims out of a total of 240 swims or a 50% improvement rate. Moreover, DCST had 13 swims which were a swimmer’s first time achieving a particular time standard this season. The breakdown of the time standards achieved was: 9 new District qualifying times, 4 new Area qualifying times.
DCST had 40 swimmers with at least two personal best times.  These swimmers were:  Ty Ament, Camryn Anderson, Gavin Anderson, Tyler Berger, Austin Bockman, Justin Buck, Mikaila DiCostanzo, Grace Fergus, Alyssa Ferrigan, Nathan Flaherty, Stephen Flaherty, Bailey Flemming, Madisyn Grever, Sabrina Groce, Hannah Hanks, Mel LeBlanc, Jonathan Liu, Riley Lohse, Michael Lorr, Joe Luetkehans, Libby Mildner, Abby Pardridge, Dane Pardridge, Hannah Regan, Riley Regan, Josie Rivera, Elissa Roose, David Ruetten, Ryan Schultz, Tyler Schultz, Logan Sims, Ashley Stark, Emily Stark, Nyomi Tams, Andrew Tatum, Jenni Weber, Elizabeth White, Athena Ye, Reilly Zak, and Taylor Zitkus.
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 a swimmer’s practice attendance, work ethic, team spirit and sportsmanship. For this meet, Sabrina Groce, age 9, and Trevor Yaeger, age 9, were selected as Big Dogs of the meet.
DCST’s next full team meet is our Barb Wire Invitational on Saturday, December 11.  Everyone is highly encouraged to attend this event.  For our rookies, this will be their first chance at swimming in an invitational.  With a 4 week break between meets, the DCST Coaching Staff is expecting many big time drops at this meet.  Swimmers who have yet to swim a legal breaststroke or butterfly swim in a meet are highly encouraged to use this time period to make their strokes legal in these events.  The coaching staff would like to have as many of these swimmers swim their first legal swims in these events at the Barb Wire.
