Our goal for the boys' basketball program continues to be to "improve every day and in every way."
We hope to enroll student-athletes whose attitude, efforts, and talent can add continuity and depth to our program. We expect our players to contribute to and benefit from the overall Hill experience. We will work hard to help our college-level players matriculate to programs that suit them academically, athletically, and socially. The Hill School is a nurturing yet demanding environment, and students who graduate from Hill and who participate in our basketball program will be well prepared for college and life.
Over the past 15 years, more than 50 Hill players have entered college basketball programs, half into Division I. Several alumni currently are playing professionally overseas. Some of our most recent graduates have played or are playing at Bentley, Bryant, Bucknell, Cornell, Dartmouth, Davidson, Hamilton, Hartford, Harvard, Lafayette, Loyola, UMBC, Navy, Princeton, Providence, Randolph Macon, Richmond, Rochester, Stonehill, Trinity (Texas), Tufts, Ursinus, VMI, Wesleyan, and William and Mary, among others. Many have been or are team captains, highlighting the leadership skills they learned at Hill.
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 and 2018. 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 won consecutive tournaments in 2016, 2017, and 2018, adding to tournament victories in 2006 and 2007.
