Sturgeon Bay, WI - A record number of DCY Swimmers competed at the Wisconsin YMCA State Championships this past weekend in Brown Deer, WI, with fantastic individual and relay results. 64 DCY swimmers, ranging in age from 8 to 18,  swam in the 3 day event against 22 teams from Ys around the state. Overall, the boys team was leading the entire meet until the last event, where 2 teams edged us out. The top 3 boys teams’ scores were separated by a mere 33 points with 186 events swam throughout the 3 day meet. It was an incredible accomplishment for our boy's team to be so close! Our nine and ten year old boys and girls led the way, becoming state champions in their age division! Our 8-Under age group was 2nd overall, for both boys and girls. These results show how dynamic our younger swimmers are at the state level. Despite having a smaller team, our girl's team placed 6th overall, and our DCY team placed 6th combined! Congratulations to all of our DCY Swimmers on a great season!
