Swimming and Diving
Hill swimming has a long and glorious tradition of excellence. Many swimmers have gone on to swim in competitive college programs and beyond, including in at least one case, the Olympics.
Our vision is to continue that tradition of excellence both in and out of the pool by developing competitive swimmers who also are exemplary citizens of the community and the world. The season is geared towards having the elite athletes perform at their best during the Eastern Interscholastic Swimming and Diving Championships (Easterns) at the end of February, while having the rest of our swimmers peak at our Mid Atlantic Prep League Championship meet in the middle of February.
Head Coach: Amy Agnew | email@example.com
Amy Agnew arrived at The Hill in the fall of 2016 as an Instructor of English and Head Swimming and Diving Coach. Coach Agnew is an established coach on the local swimming scene. She began coaching with the Pottstown YMCA team in 2005, and in 2014 she was one of several coaches to join the then-newly formed TOPS, an elite club program that has produced numerous collegiate swimmers. She was the first head coach in the history of Pottsgrove High School’s swimming program, and from 2007 – 2009 she was head coach of the North End Swim Club; coincidentally, former Hill head coach Jay Spencer, whom Agnew succeeded at The Hill, took over the North End Swim Club team from Agnew. Coach Agnew is a graduate of James Madison University, where she played club water polo. She also earned her M.A. in English from George Mason University.
