Nansemond River will take on Grassfield High School for the final meet of the regular season Thursday night. From there, the Warriors will move on to the regional meet, where they have performed well the last few seasons. Coach Shamus Riley feels like this season has been one of the more talented girls’ teams he has had, and he is looking forward to what both teams can achieve in the postseason.
