Morris swim team loses to Ottawa in Porth's debut
Morris won the same number of battles as Ottawa Tuesday but the Pirates won the war, defeating the Redskins 95-80 in a varsity girls swimming and diving meet.
The Redskins got first-place finishes in an equal number of events (6) to the Pirates, but wins in two of the three relay events — and claiming 10 of the 15 possible points in the penultimate event, the 100-meter breaststroke — made the difference for visiting Ottawa.
"That's one of those things, the way it falls," Andrew Porth, who debuted as Morris head coach, said of the result. "I'm tremendously proud of the effort of the girls. A number of them really stepped it up. ... After that first meet is where you can make some tweaks in your relays, after you see where everything falls."
