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 NISCA awards program is based on submitted team results of high school athletes (grades 9-12) that are translated into power points. A total of 349 high school teams from across the nation participated in the national dual meet ranking system this year. There were only two double winners this season, with public school division dual-winner Carmel (IN) High School joining Baylor.
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.
