Durham Academy boys 3rd, girls 13th  in NCISAA 3-A championship meets

GREENSBORO — Durham Academy’s boys’ swim team recorded what is believed to be its best N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association finish in history Monday, taking third place in the state championship meet.

“This is easily the best showing we’ve had in my seven years as coach here,” DA coach Gretchen Van De Carr said. “The records are kind of sketchy from before I got here, but as far as I know, this is the best we’ve ever done.”

The Cavalier boys took sixth place last year and Van De Carr said it’s remarkable how competitive the team is against programs with many more year-round swimmers.

“We’ve only got two year-round swimmers on the boys’ team — Trey Harris and Nathan Greeley — and only an 8th grader who swims year-round on the girls’ team,” Van De Carr said.

DA junior Trey Harris, sophomore Nathan Greeley, sophomore James Grubbs and senior Matthew Attarian won the 200 fresstyle relay and came in second in the 200 medley relay. Harris and Greeley, DA’s only two year-round swimmers on a squad of 25, did well in individual events as well. Harris was second in the 200 individual medley and 100 butterfly and Greeley was third in the 100 backstroke. Attarian took the team’s other top three finished, placing second in the 50 freestyle.

The top three team finishers Monday were state 3-A champion Charlotte Latin with 286 points, runner-up Cary Academy (231) and DA (187.5).

In the girls’ state meet, DA finished 13th with 66 points. Ravenscroft won the state title with 292, followed by Providence Day School (200) and Charlotte Latin (196).
