About

The SHP Swim Team has a proud tradition, and is widely regarded as one of the top programs in the state. Swimming is a winter sport, with the season running from first practice on November 12, 2018 through the season ending competition on March 3, 2019. The swim team competes at the varsity level only, unlike many other sports at The Prep which offer 2 or 3 levels. Students from all grade levels participate, and in a typical year some freshmen make the starting lineup. However, the coaches recognize the responsibility to offer a developmental program as well, similar to freshman and JV levels in other sports. This is accomplished within the structure of the one team, offering a program where both more experienced and less experienced swimmers have a chance to develop and excel as they represent the school.

After 30 very successful years, Randy Schweitzer has resigned as Head Coach of the team. Mr. Joseph Alexander, who assisted Schweitzer for each of those 30 seasons, has taken over as Head Coach. Together, SHP Swim teams have a 370-40 dual meet record, have won 17 Iron Hills Conference titles, 8 Super Essex County titles, and 20 Essex County swimming championships. The program has produced 4 National Prep School records and 7 All-Americans. Randy and Joe were also honored as the Star Ledger High School Swim Coaches of the year in 1999. 

Alexander will be assisted by Andrew Baldauf, who graduated SHP in 2013 and is enrolled in the Rutgers University Business School (set to graduate in Dec., 2018). While at The Prep, Baldauf was a member of both the varsity swim team and football team. He swam with Berkeley Aquatics Swim Club until the age of 12. Shortly thereafer, he joined the SHP Team and was quickly reinvigorated with the love for the sport. While swimming for SHP, Baldauf performed in multiple invitational, state championship and county title swim meets where he swam a leg of both the 200 and 400 freestyle relays as well as the individual 50 freestyle with a personal best flat-start time of 22.25. Baldauf understands what the SHP Swim team provided him in life lessons, mental and physical stanima, resiliency, integrity and much more leading to his return at The Prep.
