Swimming & Diving - Boys V
Since 2005: 58-4 |
declares: Andover’s got depth!
Marking its 102nd season during the 2013-2014 school year, the Andover boys’ swimming and diving program has a storied history: from Olympic Gold Medalists and holders of National High School Records to All-Americans and New England Champions. Despite these extraordinary accomplishments with individuals and relays, Andover’s team championships were sporadic for most of the program’s history: a National Championship in 1925 and Interscholastic Championships in 1948 and 1954.
In 2007, Andover won its first New England Preparatory School Team Championship, and the program repeated this feat in 2010, 2011, and 2012 and was runner-up in 2006, 2008, and 2009. In 2013, Andover—after its fourth consecutive undefeated dual-meet season—opted to forgo a defense of its title in favor of attending the prestigious Eastern Championship meet, where the squad placed 4th out of 44 teams.
The swimming and diving season begins in mid-November and concludes in early March. Throughout the season, the swimming coaches emphasize both technique and conditioning: swimmers learn proper stroke mechanics, starts, and turns, and they repeat them through race-pace training. Similarly, the diving coach emphasizes proper fundamentals in service of outstanding performance to both our elite and novice divers.
Our facility includes a six-lane pool and a separate diving well, both above water and underwater video equipment, and a state-of-the-art fitness center, which includes cardio-vascular machines, weight machines, and free weights.
A full Junior Varsity team is an integral part of the Andover swimming and diving program; in fact, many of the Varsity swimmers and divers began their careers on this developmental squad.
