This was an amazing run for the team considering we started the season with 7 athletes.
Nate Higdon has now qualified for State in seven events but can only compete in four: the 200 IM, 100 breaststroke and two relays.
The Tigers won medals in 8 of 12 events.
Maurizio Visconti won the gold in diving and qualified for State with a score of 315 points. 7th grader Noah Clinton scored 286 total points in the exhibition event. These two are the first divers to compete for Hargrave in over ten years. Congrats divers!
