Senior Matthew Wood led the way for the Tigers, picking up the team’s first event win of the season in the 50-yard freestyle. His time of 23.80 seconds not only secured him the gold medal it barely missed the state qualification time of 23.50. A few events later, in the 100-yard butterfly, Wood went on to qualify for state with a time of 56.98 seconds along with the silver medal for the event, his second medal of the Nov. 21 meet. It is the fourth year in a row the senior has made state in the event.
