Varsity Swimming - Coed
The Pingree swim team formed in 2006 and has since become a popular afterschool activity for Pingree students. The coed team competes against other prep schools such as Dexter Southfield School, Dana Hall School, Phillips Exeter Academy, Winsor School, Berwick Academy, Worcester Academy, Thayer Academy, and Bancroft School. To wrap up the season, the team competes at the NEPSSA Championships. The Pingree swim team enjoys their time in and out of the water and is looking forward to another successful season!
