Boys' Swimming

Mercersburg Academy Boys Swimming

Within the Mercersburg athletic program, swimming has a special and enduring tradition of excellence. Head coach and former YMCA National Coach of the Year Glenn Neufeld leads a program that has produced numerous prep school All-Americans and sent countless swimmers to compete at top colleges and universities.

Mercersburg swimmers can train all three seasons during the school year, with the primary competition schedule running through the fall and winter seasons, as the Blue Storm travels to USA Swimming and high school events. The winter season culminates at the Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships, the largest prep school aquatic event in the nation

Experience is the key word for the swimming and diving coaching staff. Coach Neufeld has led Mercersburg to Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships on both the boys’ and girls’ sides.

Mercersburg’s swimmers and divers train and compete in the Lloyd Aquatic Center, a 40,000-square-foot facility that opened in 2019 and includes the Olympic-size 50-meter, 10-lane Furnary Pool with a diving area, locker rooms, seating for spectators, and office space. Dry-land training occurs in the McDowell Fitness Center, which features 6,000 square feet of contemporary equipment and programming.

Over the last several years, Mercersburg alumni have gone on to compete at numerous institutions, including Air Force, Army, Bucknell, Florida State, Lehigh, Miami, Middlebury, Navy, NYU, Penn, Pittsburgh, Rice, SMU, USC, Texas A&M, and Williams.


A storied history of preparing swimmers for the collegiate level and beyond:

  • 32 Olympians who have earned 11 medals, (including five golds) representing the USA and 12 other countries
  • Hundreds of High School All-Americans
  • 9 National High School/Interscholastic team championships
  • More than 20 Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships
