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.

Girls Varsity Swimming Records

Top 10 Relays

Top 10 Yard Swims










After not competing for 10 days because of weather-related cancellations, the Pelican girls swimming and diving team came off the blocks well on Saturday, cruising to a 94-76 victory over the Bearcats of Hotchkiss.

The boys and girls swimming and diving teams hosted the Bobcats from Williston on Wednesday, finishing the day with the boys earning a 89-72 victory and the girls garnering a 96-85 win.

Loomis sophomore Madison Perry broke one of the school's oldest swimming and diving records Wednesday at Kent then shattered the new record Saturday at Andover. Amassing 304.65 points on Saturday, just days after her record-breaking 274.75-point performance, Madison's score eclipsed Irene Corsak's '78 36-year-old school record of 256.30 points.

There's nothing like the unexpected to bolster the resilience of a team as the boys and girls swim teams demonstrated this week.
