The Baylor boys' and girls' varsity swimming and diving teams have been named the 2018 National Independent School Dual Meet champions by the National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association.

The Baylor boys racked up 6,004 points to win their second straight and fifth overall title, winning the Independent School Class 11 division. Bolles School (Jacksonville, FL) finished second with 5,678 points, and Pingry School (Basking Rdige, NJ) was third.   

The Baylor girls won the same division, totalling 5,855 points. Bolles finished second with 5,807 and Pine Crest (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) took third with 5,370 points.  The Baylor girls jumped from a seventh place finish in 2017, scoring 4,805 points.
