About the Team

Menlo School swim teams have seen growth every season and continue to thrive in league competition and send swimmers to CCS. The boys’ team won five consecutive Peninsula Athletic League titles from 2003 to 2007. In the boys’ inaugural season in the West Bay Athletic League in 2009, they won the league championship. The girls own two long league-win streaks: from 1986 to 1994 and from 1996 to 2006. Both teams now compete in the WBAL. The Knights consistently qualify 10 or more swimmers to compete in a range of CCS Championships events.
