SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Girls and Boys swim teams share a congenial, but intense, rivalry with their counterparts from New Providence. Many of the student-athletes swam with and against each other at the club level, so the friendly rivalry carries with it a little extra oomph.

The Summit YMCA pool was the site of the latest aquatic border battle, and it was the Hilltoppers that emerged victorious, submerging the Pioneers and winning both the girls and boys competitions, capturing neighbor-town bragging rights in the process.
