SWIM TEAM INFORMATION

West Mifflin proudly sponsors both a middle school (JV) and high school (Varsity) swimming program for students in 7th through 12th grades.

Our middle school team competes in September and October every year, and our varsity season runs November through February, plus WPIAL and PIAA Championships (for those qualifying) and various off season opportunities.

 

 

From 2011-2014 West Mifflin was represented at PIAA Championships each year and was represented again in 2016, and boasts a back-to-back WPIAL Champion in the Boys' 100 Yard Butterfly for 2013 and 2014, as well as a 2014 WPIAL Champion in the 100 back! Brad also went on to finish second in the state of Pennsylvania in the 100 fly in 2014! Brad is now a Westminster University graduate where he swam all 4 years (still a Titan!), as so many of our athletes go on to represent us at the collegiate level.

The Girls' Team was also the 2015-2016 Section Champions, making them back-to-back-to-back-to-back (4-PEAT!) section champs that year!!
