March 1, 2022
Specht in action this season (PC: Bruce Jeffrey)

During our spring break on February 25 and 26, members of the swim team traveled to Lancaster, PA to compete in the Eastern Interscholastic Swimming & Diving Championships, hosted by Franklin & Marshall College. The event is one of the premier private school meets in the country and has been held annually since 1935. It was the first time the Bears returned to the event since 2019 following meet cancelations the last two years due to COVID-19.

Despite having only a handful of competitors compared to other teams, the Bears finished in a combined 30th place out of 39 teams. The girls were 24th out of 30 and the boys 25th out of 30.

Here are the Bears’ final results.
