With the new regional alignment this season, the boys and girls varsity swim teams engaged county rival Cosby, Thomas Dale and eight other schools from the VA Beach area.
James River Girls took first place in eight of the eleven events and finished second overall in the region. James River Boys finished third in the region in swimming, though without the points from diving, they were marked as finishing fifth.
James River girls will send on to Class 6 states: Grace Sheble, Caroline Sheble, Morgan Burton, Sydney Branch, Tess Williams, Cassie Johnson, Brynn Dyer, Mackenzie Stoll, Kate Stanko, Kaleigh Yunker and Anna Wood. James River Boys will send Jack McCann, Jonathan Zimmer, Xander Shreck, Guenter Kryzson, Zach Hoffman, Aidan Springer, JP Brunetti and Stefan Brandt.
