The Nansemond River High School boys’ and girls’ swimming teams emerged Friday as Ironclad Conference champions for the second consecutive year.

“I think they actually did very well,” NR coach Shamus Riley said. “Out of 70 possible entries per team, we had 66 qualify for regional championships on Monday.”

Senior Cody Edwards broke the Nansemond River school record in the 200-yard freestyle at the championship meet this week. School records also were broken by the girls’ 400-yard freestyle relay and boys’ 200-yard freestyle relay, the latter of which qualified for states.
