The Nansemond River boys’ and girls’ swim teams lost to Western Branch, 125-51 and 136-39, respectively, on Saturday at the Great Bridge Swim and Racquet Club.

Eubanks was also part of a 200-meter medley relay team that broke the school record with a time of 2:06.28. Kyle Cook, Robert Boswell and Cody Edwards were also a part of the team, which came in third for the meet.
