Hill Celebrates 134th Anniversary of Hill vs. Lawrenceville Competition
Hill School football team celebrates win over Lawrenceville

This year (2021) marked the 134th anniversary of The Hill vs. Lawrenceville competition, the fifth oldest high school rivalry in the country. Students and faculty brought energy and excitement to Spirit Week, as they donned their blue and gray, banged spoons, passed brooms, and sang The Hill School Fight Song in the Dining Hall, which was decorated with banners. *Scroll down to view more photos.

While our students enjoyed the traditional Red Meat Dinner, pep rally, and bonfire on Friday evening, alumni and guests gathered in the Center For The Arts to honor this year’s inductees into The Hill School Athletics Hall of Fame. Earlier that afternoon, we honored the 30 teams that were inducted into the Alumni Centennial Hall and Frank S. Bissell Hall.

The week started off with JV football playing at Lawrenceville on Monday, November 1, where the team lost a hard-fought game 18-34. On Wednesday, November 3, both JV and varsity girls’ and boys’ water polo teams went head-to-head at home for a series of competitive games. The varsity boys’ team had an incredible 7-6 win in overtime, while the girls’ team dominated the pool winning 17-6. Unfortunately, both boys’ (8-10) and girls’ (3-9) JV teams fell to Lawrenceville.

All remaining teams competed on Saturday, November 6. Campus was bustling with many alumni, parents, and fans on campus to cheer on our student-athletes. The day concluded with varsity football, field hockey (MAPL champions), and boys’ soccer (MAPL tri-champions with Peddie and Hun) capturing key victories and students storming the fields to celebrate! After tough competition and some great wins for Hill, the Meigs-Green Cup ultimately went to Lawrenceville. Nineteen competitions – 18 athletics contests and a debate – comprised the Meigs-Green Cup, with the winner of each competition receiving one point in the standings and a tie counting for a half-point (Lawrenceville: 10.5; Hill:8.5).
