The focus this season was on technique and making the swimmers aware of their times in each event. Life Time Bests (LTBs) were monitored and swimmers received a blue or white bead to be put on a ring each time they achieved an LTB. Throughout the season, the team dropped 2660 seconds, resulting in 815 LTBs.
The Dysart Swim Team Board, the parents, and the swimmers did a great job with setting up for meets, volunteering, committing to practices, and making changes throughout the season. Kent King, Kurt Alpers, and Joe Tecklenburg drove the buses to the meets. It was a very successful swim season.
