A new sport launched at Bishop Connolly during the 2017-18 school year, the BCHS Swim Program is framed around technique, aerobic development and constant competition. Our team of co-ed swimmers attends meets against both public and private schools throughout Southeastern Massachusetts, Rhode Island and the Boston Metropolitan area. The swim season runs from late November to mid-February, with daily practices taking place at the Fall River Boys and Girls Club. All students are welcome to join the team.
The new BCHS sport attracted swimmers of all ability levels, from novices to competitive club swimmers, who quickly became a spirited, cohesive team. The swim team finished its first season with a 4-6 record, with freshman Rachel Medeiros qualifying for both the Sectional and State swim meets.
