Women’s gymnastics:

William and Mary posted its best season-opening score of the last decade with a victory of 190.725 to 183.05 against Cortland State at Kaplan Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Sophomore Brittany Stover highlighted the Tribe’s performances. She claimed titles on vault, bars, balance beam and the all-around. Her all-around score of 38.975 is tied for seventh all-time for W&M.

Senior Jess Pritchard won the floor exercise at 9.8 and placed second all-around (38.100).

Swimming and diving:

William and Mary’s men (6-1) and women (5-3) defeated visiting Davidson.

The Tribe men won 169-93 as sophomores Billy Russell of Newport News and Will Manion won two events each and swam on the first-place 200-yard relay.

Russell won the 50 freestyle in 20.81 seconds, the No. 2 dual-meet finish all-time by a W&M swimmer, and the 100 butterfly in 51.36.

The W&M women earned a 152-110 triumph against the Wildcats as Megan Howard, Jaimie Miller, Sara Schad and Greta Schneider set a pool-record time of 1:34.84 in the 200 free relay.

Schad and Williamsburg's Allie Christy were among the swimmers on the winning 400 medley relay (3:52.66).

Men’s tennis:

William and Mary went 1-7 against N.C. State players and 2-6 against Elon foes, all in singles, on the first day of the season-opening Wolfpack Invitational individual tournament in Raleigh, N.C.

Ben Hoogland won twice, and freshman Damon Niquet prevailed against Elon.

The Tribe wrapped up Saturday's play by winning seven of the 16 doubles sets it played. Ben Guthrie and Niquet led W&M with a 3-1 record.

Pro hockey:

Frederik Andersen's return to Norfolk action didn't go as he'd hoped, and the Admirals saw their three-game winning streak end with a 5-1 loss to the Worcester Sharks.

Andersen made 30 saves but took the loss as Norfolk fell to a 1-1 on a three-day, three-game trip. They will stay in Massachusetts for Sunday’s contest against the Springfield Falcons.

The Admirals (19-13-1-4) have a different look in goal.

Igor Bobkov earned the victory Friday in a shootout in Maine against Portland, extending Norfolk’s winning streak to three. John Gibson, 20, who is 11-9-3 with a 2.61 goals-against average for Norfolk this season, was recalled Friday by the parent Anaheim Ducks.

Along with calling up Gibson, the Ducks reassigned Andersen to the Admirals, though he has been one of the NHL’s best young goaltenders. He is 10-2 with a 2.06 GAA for the Ducks this season.

Devante Smith-Pelly, who has been on a shuttle with Anaheim as well, tied the score at 1 with a power-play goal 6:04 into the second period. It gave him a goal in four consecutive games, but Norfolk never again beat goalie Troy Grosenick.

But Adam Comrie put the Sharks ahead to stay at 2-1 at 12:15 with the second of Worcester's three goals in the middle period.

Emerson Etem's five-game goal-scoring streak for the Admirals, which tied for an AHL-best this season, ended, as did his eight-game point-scoring streak.
