    Exeter puts out many Putnam scholars and Harvard loves mathematicians.

    FWIW, pretty sure Lawrenceville's fencing is not as strong as Exeter's math.

    Salisbury: Hockey, Lacrosse, then probably rowing or baseball as the next strongest.

    For Northwood, I might add boys’ soccer. They have added the Black Rock residential academy, which is new at Northwood but is a very strong program.

    The SPS football team was undefeated this year. Girls field hockey, volleyball and lax are also pretty amazing.

    Like I said above, @Heading2HS, not sure what i’d put as the 3rd sport at Salisbury; rowing and baseball have traditionally been strong and are currently. Anyone else is free to correct me.

    @CTMom21 - You can add hockey. Salisbury hockey is considered very strong! :)

    @photographermom, yes, for sure — I definitely put hockey and lacrosse as 1 and 2 (not sure of the order), but i’m not sure about 3rd 😀

    @photographermom, I was secretly hoping my son might be inspired and take up rowing, but alas...I’ve never seen the boats on the water IRL. However, the boat house and lake are so beautiful — it’s magical!
