The Hill is a member of the ultra-competitive Mid-Atlantic Prep League, competing against New Jersey schools Blair, Hun, Lawrenceville, and Peddie, as well as Mercersburg from Pennsylvania. Hill has won three MAPL championships, claiming the league crown in 2008, 2011, and 2014. Each year, Hill also participates in several events and tournaments, including the PA Independent State Tournament, where Hill was both the 2007 and 2008 runner-up, and the Independent School State champs in 2014. Hill’s own Mercer Invitational Tournament, held annually in December since 1970, traditionally boasts an outstanding eight-team field that annually attracts more than 50 college coaches from all over the country. Hill made it to the final in 2005 and 2008, and won the tournament in 2006 and 2007.
Hill returns 8 varsity letter winners, has several JV players ready to make the move up to Varsity, and we have enrolled several impact players who will join the school and program. With this strong core, Hill will tackle its toughest schedule ever including additional events in Boston and the Westtown tournament, and hosting a high level showcase at Hill in early December.
