Swimming - Boys Varsity
Wyoming Seminary has a tradition of academic and athletic excellence. The Swimming and Diving program stresses the importance of hard work and dedication both in the pool and out. We stress diligence and focus when training in the pool and on land as well as academically where we place the majority of our students on Dean’s list if not High Honors. Our highly competitive PIAA District II schedule allows our student athletes to improve steadily over the course of the season. In addition to a fantastic Swimming and Diving program, all of our students are challenged and enriched by our tremendous faculty and our college-prep curriculum, which prepares the students for success collegiately.
Many Blue Knights have gone on to success in college, at the NCAA DI, DII, and DIII levels. Schools where Blue Knights have competed include:
