The Dawson County swim team traveled to Savannah on Jan. 11 to participate in the Savannah Country Day Invitational swim meet hosted by the Savannah Country Day School. The invitational featured over 300 swimmers from 20 schools hailing from all four corners of Georgia and was far and away the largest event the Tigers have participated in this season. “This was the biggest meet for us, by far. It was a great experience,” Head Coach Linda Sperin said. “We had 18 individual best times and two relays!” State qualifier Matthew Wood led the way for the Tigers with a fifth-place finish (out of 22 swimmers) in the 100-yard butterfly while freshman swimmer Isabelle Kinsey shaved 13 seconds off of her 100-yard backstroke to finish eighth in a field of 31 swimmers.
