Swimming capped off a great 2018-2019 season at the New England Division I Championships at Deerfield Academy with a 10th place team finish, moving up a spot from last year. New Englands also brought a number of top individual finishes, A Final qualifiers, and a school record in the 200 Freestyle from Catherine Hamilton ’19. The team finished 3rd at the FAA Championships, posting 2nd and 3rd place podium finishes in individual and relay events. Some highlights from the season include defeating Loomis Chaffee for the first time in 9 years, setting four pool records in December in our meet vs CSH 91st Street, and winning the Horace Mann Invitational in January. The team also competed at the National Catholic Championships for the first time in Maryland. This will be a great meet for the swimmers and divers to attend in future years!
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.
