The Dawson County Tigers swim team competed against schools from across the north Georgia region at the Darlington Invitational swim meet Dec. 18 in Rome in their final meet of the year.
Senior Devin Eichler led the way for the boys’ team with wins in both the 200-yard and 500-yard freestyle medleys to finish in a tie for first place overall on the day in the individual competition.
Strong performances from fellow senior Will Mulberry in the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle events along with a third place finish from the relay team in the 200-yard medley rounded out the scoring for the Tigers and pushed them into a third place team finish.
Finishing the day in a tie for fifth place, freshman stand-out Ayla Miller set the pace for the Lady Tigers with scoring finishes in the 50-yard and 200-yard medley in addition to anchoring a solid performance from the team in the 200-yard medley relay.
In her first ever 500-yard freestyle event, senior Frankie Muldoon grabbed a fourth place finish to put points on the board for the Lady Tigers, and scoring finishes from fellow senior Lindsey LeBaron and junior Kara Starr moved the team into a strong second place finish behind the Woodstock Wolverines.
“We had several personal records and placed well in many events,” said Head Coach Linda Sperin.
The Tigers enjoyed an extended holiday break and will be in action again on Jan. 12 when they travel to Ruby Fulbright Natatorium in Clarkesville.
