DCY Swim Team Continues String of Success at State

Over the past weekend, The Door County YMCA Swim Team competed in the State Championship
held in Brown Deer, Milwaukee. We had a total of 62 swimmers qualify for the State meet out of 140
swimmers on team. Each swimmer must meet a time standard to be eligible to swim at the meet and
are able to swim in up to 5 events. Our DCY Team placed 4th out of 22 teams, with us being the smallest team to place in the top 4. Our youngest age group is our strongest age group, bringing home quite a few medals.


Two DCY Swimmers - Christy Braun and Jacob Norton - will represent the Door County Y at the 2022
