Over the past few seasons, Germantown Academy and The Shipley School have had their fair share of matchups. On Friday, the two teams will once again share the floor in the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association Tournament semifinal game.
When the first day of the Eastern Interscholastic Swimming Championships concluded, Germantown Academy Head Coach Jeff Thompson said that he believed the boys team would have a good second day. Thompson's prediction proved to be correct as seven individuals compete in the finals and one relay.
After a successful first day at Eastern Interscholastic Swimming Championships, Germantown Academy's girls swimming team returned to the pool on Saturday for day two. The Patriots matched their success from the previous day, and parlayed those performances into a fifth place team finish.
Before the season even started, Germantown Academy Head Coach Solomon Fleckman said that the most important match for the team would come at Prep Nationals. With the season winding down, it is almost time to see how the Patriots perform at that meet. First, however, they had to compete at the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Westling Tournament.
