Boys' Swimming Among Top 25 Programs in U.S.
2011 team amassed program's highest point total
August 04, 2011
— In 2011, the Andover Boys' Swimming Team placed 23rd among all boys' high
school swimming teams in the United States according to a recent release by
the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association.
Based on individual and relay performances during the 2011 season, Andover
amassed a score of 5569 points; the program's highest total ever. Andover's
total score was good enough for 11th-place nationally among all independent
schools with more than 900 students and 14th-place nationally among all
independent schools of any size. Only nine public schools of any size
scored higher than Andover.
The top swimming program in the nation in 2011 was New Trier High School in
Winnetka, Ill., with 6254 points; the top independent school was the Bolles
School in Jacksonville, Fla., with 6179 points.
Andover finished ahead of the perennial powerhouse Peddie School in
Highstown, N.J., a program that has generated multiple Olympians in the past
two decades. In fact, only two teams on the Eastern Board scored higher
than Andover: Hershey, Pa., and LaSalle College, also in Pa.
With an influx of several new student-athletes, the Andover Boys' Swimming
Team hopes to continue its ascension in the 2012 campaign.
