Knights Perform Well Against Top Competition

The boys’ swim team fell to Morristown-Beard on Monday, December 17, by a score of 105-62. The Knights now sit at 1-1 on the season.
“I give the boys a lot of credit for scoring over 60 points,” said head coach Nolan Silbernagel. “Morristown-Beard has some of the best middle lane talent in the state so I am very proud of our team for keeping it a competitive meet.”
