Sarah Byrne '11 has started her junior season on the Dartmouth women's lacrosse team in a big way. In the team's season opener on Saturday, Byrne scored four goals against University of New Hampshire.

Boston College senior lacrosse player Kate McCarthy '10 has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week.

A major track and field invitational at Boston University earlier this month brought together no fewer than eight Loomis Chaffee alumni competing for their respective college track teams.

Varsity Swimming/Diving - Girls

Signup for an alert reminder.

For many years, The Loomis Chaffee School has been known for its excellence in Girls Swimming and Diving. Consistently finishing among the top schools at the Division I New England Championships, the Pelicans have captured the New England title seven times, most recently during the 2006-2007 season. The team also has won the Western New England Championships (Bud Erich Invitational) 18 times and has produced more than 30 swimming and diving All-Americans and qualifiers. Loomis also has won the Founders League Championship eleven out of the last fifteen years.

In 2014-2015, the Pelicans look for their returning veterans as well as some talented newcomers to again make a splash in the New England scene. The Pelicans will have their sights set high once again, coming off successful dual meet and championship seasons.  Loomis Chaffee is a member of the Founders League and competes at the Division I NEPSAC level, with championship meets in both.  Emphasis is placed on individualized training and instruction, focusing on improvement throughout the season.  In the 2013-2014 season, over 90% of the swims at championships were personal bests!

The team is composed of hard-working swimmers and divers for whom individual goals and improvement are as important as team goals. In 2014-2015, Head Coach Bob DeConinck will be in his 29th year as a head coach and his seventeenth season at the helm of the Pelicans, and has extensive experience coaching at all ability levels, assuring ample instruction and individualized attention in all aspects of the training program. Memo Alejandro continues to head up the very successful diving program.

For those swimmers who are looking to train in the off-season while attending Loomis Chaffee, the Aquabears, a very successful Connecticut Swimming USS club program, uses our Hedges pool as their training facility.  Arrangements can be made to train with the Aquabears, coached for over twenty years by a Loomis Chaffee alumnus.
