Softball

The Hill School softball program is one that has grown over the first 20 years of coeducation. This program has rebuilt itself from the ground up, and is working hard to establish itself as a local power. The School finds itself in a hotbed of high school softball, and the program is looking forward to capitalizing on the abundance of local talent.

The varsity team plays approximately 18 games against highly competitive teams in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey areas. The Hill participates in the ultra-competitive Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) against Blair Academy, the Hun School, the Lawrenceville School, Mercersburg Academy, and the Peddie School. In addition, the team competes against great teams from both the Inter-Ac League and Friends League in the Philadelphia area. Through hard work and great team chemistry, the team is working toward its annual goals of winning the MAPL and PAISAA Championships.
