Note from Head Coach Keegan Reed on 2022-2023 season:
This season has been one that I will never forget. After some grueling early season practices, an inner Sacred Heart fun meet and get together with 91st Street and Sacred Heart Stone Ridge, the team started to come together as we approached our first dual meet. We started the season with three wins before winter break. In January we went to National Catholic Champs in Maryland. We carpooled with 91st Street, broke several team records, went duckpin bowling, and placed 5th out of 26 teams, achieving our highest placement ever. After catholic champs we went on a spree of victories meet after meet. We finished the regular season 15-0 going undefeated for the first time since 2010.
At FAAs every single swim mattered. The team rallied around every swim, carrying each other to perform their best and race their hardest. We had someone in the top three in almost every race. Some people moved from 20th place to the top 16, securing vital points to our success. It all came down to the last relay. The pool deck was at a deafening volume as our team took first place. We won the relay and won FAAs by 1 point.
At Division 1 NEPSACs Alexandra, Victoria, Jane, and Lauren all made finals in both of their events while Emma, Irene, and Julia all made it back to finals in one of their events. With solid swims by the medley and 200 free relay, along with the individual swims, we were once again in the position of needing to beat several teams in the 400 free relay to stay in our current position in the competition. With GA, Suffield, Choate, and Loomis all on our heels, we came in 4th, securing 4th place overall, beating 4 teams by 15 or less points, and tying our highest ever placement at New Englands.
Alexandra received the Robertson Award at New Englands after taking first place in both the 200 and 500 free and breaking the pool records at Andover. No one at Sacred Heart has ever received this honor in the 50 years since the founding of the girls competition at NEPSACs. For this award, coaches vote at the championships for outstanding student-athletes in each division who best exemplify the values of New England Prep School Swimming and Diving. Alexandra rebroke her team record in the 200 free with a time of 1:49.38 and her 500 free record with a time of 4:50.63 and achieved All American status.
Victoria now holds the record in the 50 freestyle with a time of 24.40 seconds and the 100 fly with a time of 58.96 seconds.
Victoria, Emma, Jane, and Alexandra hold the 200 freestyle relay record with a time of 1:40.65
Lauren, Emma, Jane, and Alexandra hold the 400 freestyle relay record with a time of 3:37.34
Sacred Heart Greenwich boasts a 25 yard indoor swimming pool, which underwent enhancements in 2017 that were generously underwritten by a Sacred Heart family. Swimmers benefit from the installation of a new Colorado Timing System with electronic touch-pads, digital pace clocks, a new scoreboard and an underwater sound system.
Athletes also have access to our 35,600 square foot athletic center designed for women’s sports which opened in September 2015. The facility includes three National Federation of State High School Associations regulation basketball and volleyball courts, six international singles squash courts, classrooms for health and physical education, a strength and conditioning room, a dance and yoga studio, and a sports medicine center in addition to locker rooms for home and visiting teams, a press box, and administrative offices.
