Easterns title is first for Storm boys since 2010
More than a century of excellence in the pool:
- 243 swimming and diving High School All-Americans since 1935
- 9 National High School/Interscholastic team championships
- More than 20 Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships
Experience is the key word for the swimming and diving coaching staff. Head swim coach and director of aquatics Glenn Neufeld has led Mercersburg to Eastern Interscholastic Swimming & Diving Championships on both the boys’ and girls’ sides (including in 2022 for the Blue Storm boys), and has also won a YMCA national championship.
Mercersburg’s tradition of excellence extends to college pools. Several Mercersburg divers are competing at the collegiate level, including for NCAA Division I programs Army, Navy, and Lafayette.
Mercersburg’s divers train and compete in the sparkling Lloyd Aquatic Center, with two one-meter and two three-meter boards as part of the Furnary Pool (plus a hot tub adjacent to the diving area). Dry-land training occurs in the McDowell Fitness Center, which features 6,000 square feet of contemporary equipment and programming.
