The Dawson County swim team traveled to Adairsville to take part in a tri-meet against the teams from Cass High School of Cartersville and Southeast Whitfield High School of Dalton on Jan. 14. Riding the wave of success generated by their record-setting performance in Savannah the week prior, the Tigers captured a clean sweep of the event with first-place finishes in the boys’, girls’ and overall team categories in the day’s 24 events. Junior Matthew Wood led the way for the Tigers on the boys’ side of the pool as he captured first place in both the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke. Seniors Will Mulberry and Devin Eichler scored gold medals of their own with wins in the 100-yard freestyle and 500-yard freestyle respectively.
