(Jan. 9, 2014) The varsity swimming and diving teams fell to Duxbury High School Saturday in a non-league meet at the Nantucket Community Pool, with the boys losing 109-74 and the girls 110-73.

Head coach Jim Pignato said Duxbury has a long-standing tradition of superior athletics and its swimming and diving program is no exception.

“Difficult non-league meets always force our kids to step up to the challenge and show them the other competition that is out there. It is a great opportunity for them to compete,” Pig­nato said.
