Records Honored and Set

Bruce Dunbar ’85 and Aidan Wilson ’20, two of the most accomplished Hackley swimmers of all-time, share the Hackley School record in the 500 Free (4:34.61).

In the 2018-19 season, Aidan broke Bruce’s 1985 record in the 200 Free swimming a blistering 1:42.99. Bruce was subsequently a member of the Princeton Swim Team and Aidan will swim for Brown next year.

Returning to campus Bruce also spoke with members of the 2019-20 swim team about his time at Hackley, in and out of the pool, and his longstanding commitment to his old school. He inspired the team with talk about character and hard work and lessons that can be learned through swimming. He encouraged Hackley swimmers to stay connected to their alma mater throughout their lives, noting how much he enjoys attending Hackley events and staying in touch with classmates and former teammates. It was a special day in Hackley’s new pool.
