Published 9:00 pm Saturday, December 6, 2014

The Nansemond-Suffolk Academy girls’ and boys’ swimming teams opened up the 2014-15 season with a taste of victory and defeat. Each achieved a win against Cape Henry Collegiate School and each experienced a loss against Walsingham Academy on Friday during a double dual at YMCA Camp Arrowhead.

“Considering we were missing probably about 10 swimmers, I thought they did a great job and their times were better than I expected,” NSA coach Karen Norman said. “They worked really hard, and I was very pleased with how we did.”

The girls’ won 76-48 against Cape Henry, while the boys won 71-65. Against Walsingham, the girls lost 86-69 and the boys fell 82-70.
