The Main Line high school swimming and diving scene featured a number of strong teams this past winter, particularly at Conestoga. The Pioneer girls finished second at the PIAA 3A state championships, while the Conestoga boys placed fifth. At Easterns, Academy of Notre Dame finished fourth in the girls competition, while Malvern Prep placed fourth in the boys’ division.
The All-Main Line high school swimming teams are selected by the coaches. Because Main Line Media News covers 19 high schools, the Main Line Media News sports staff limits the number of sports available to first team, second team and honorable mention – but follows the priority of the coaches’ selections.
