During this week, the girls’ swim team got a win against Great Bridge High School on Tuesday, which was the first time the girls’ team had defeated Great Bridge. Riley went into the week hoping that both teams could break their losing streaks against the opponents, and they did.

With the win Thursday, the boys’ record is 5-1 and, despite the loss Thursday, the girls’ team currently sits at 4-2. Both teams are on pace to win the most meets in a season in school history.

Nansemond River will swim against Grassfield High School at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24 at Southside Aquatics in Norfolk.
