The Virginia commit has 1,148 career wins to break the record previously held by TD Ierlan*.
Tygh started the week winning 17 of 19 face-offs to help Penn Charter control the ball and defeat St. Augustine Prep (N.J.) 8-7, which put him close to the record.
The senior is winning 71 percent of his opportunities this season and has eight games in which he has won at least 11 face-offs.
In each of the last two seasons, Tygh has won more than 300 faceoffs. He has 136 this season.
Editor’s Note: Ierlan’s college bio lists him with 1,135 career wins, but Victor head coach Jim Andre has him with 1,119. For the purposes of this article, we are using the college totals to ensure the record is broken.

You Can Make a Difference
When I founded LaxRecords.com, I could have made it into a for-profit company, but I wanted to create something different - there's plenty of recruiting coverage available. I've worked hard over the last four years to keep all content free and open to everyone. My promise to you is that I will never charge for access to the content on LaxRecords.com.
I believe LaxRecords.com is something special. It is like a library or Wikipedia. A place to discover the history of lacrosse. To my knowledge, I am the only person doing this work in lacrosse.
If everyone reading this donated, my fundraiser work would be done within an hour. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine.
This year, please consider making a donation of $5, $20, $50 or whatever you can to protect and sustain LaxRecords.com. Can't afford that amount? How about $2 per month? I created a way to make a monthly, recurring donation. If you donate $2 per month, that's $24 per year. Added up over many of you, that makes a huge difference and helps continue improvements.
