Haverford School retains the Heyward Cup

Haverford ­– The Haverford School retained the Inter-Academic League’s Heyward Cup for an unprecedented 17th time – the most of any Inter-Ac school thus far. The cup is awarded annually to the school that accumulates the most points based on its league standing in all Inter-Ac sports throughout the three seasons. During the 2016-17 school year, the Fords won Inter-Ac championships in cross-country, squash (undefeated), swimming and diving (undefeated), lacrosse, and tennis (undefeated). Other highlights from the year: crew rowed in the Henley Royal Regatta in England, squash won its first high school national title, hockey defeated Germantown Academy for the Independence Hockey League Championship, two wrestlers placed at National Preps, the 4×100 relay team set a new school record and the 4×400 relay team took first place at the Inter-Ac Championship meet, and Alex Boratto was named All-Delco Boys Swimmer of the Year for the second-consecutive time.
