WASHINGTON, Conn. — The Nonnewaug swim team defeated Litchfield on Jan. 29. 

Kyle Viveros placed first in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard breaststroke. Grace Walkup won both the 200-yard freestyle and the 500-yard freestyle. Maddox Poythress placed first in the 100-yard butterfly.  

“Litchfield is a strong team but we were able to work together to win against them,” said Viveros, a senior captain. “It really took every teammate to score points, but even to cheer each other on and want each other to go fast. It feels good to win, especially with this team.” 

Nonnewaug’s next meet is Feb. 1 at Kennedy High School against Northwestern.
