Athletics at Porter's

Athletics are a fundamental part of the overall educational experience at Miss Porter's School.  The athletic program strives to teach students physical and mental skills, self-discipline, and sportsmanship while motivating athletes to strive for excellence. We believe the value of participation is lifelong and that the team experience builds foundational skills of leadership, teamwork, competition, commitment, integrity, and achievement.

Athletics at Porter's are competitive and require a level of commitment above and beyond other after school activities. At the varsity level in particular, the most capable and committed athletes constitute teams. In doing so, these teams aim to refine athletic skills to compete at an advance level and excel in competitions.  All athletes are expected to promote and demonstrate respect, resilience, courage, patience, and commitment to their teammates and with adults.

Porter's competes in the Founders League with Choate Rosemary Hall, Ethel Walker, Hotchkiss, Kent, Kingswood-Oxford, Loomis Chaffee, Taft and Westminster schools. At the end of each season, Porter's competes against the area's most competitive teams in the New England Championships.

  • Athletes of the Week: Marjorie Plants '21 & Marissa Chow '20

    This week's athletes of the week are Marjorie Plants '21 from varsity skiing and Marissa Chow '20 from varsity swimming and diving. 

    Plants '21 finished 2nd in Giant Slalom and 5th in Slalom assisting Porter's to place 6th as a team at the NEPSAC Class B Alpine Race Championships. Competing against tough competition, with male and female prep school teams from all over Northern New England, Plants '21 had 4 great runs with challenging courses, large ruts that formed from the soft 6 inches of new snow from the previous day's storm. During this past ski season, she has completed every run in all of her races, finished consistently in the top ten with a couple of finishes in the top 3, and daily - worked hard to improve her skiing and racing. 

    Chow '20 broke the Westminster pool record in the 100 Breaststroke and was on the 200 Medley Relay that also broke the Westminster pool record. That’s two record-breaking swims from this past Saturdays swim meet!  

    Congratulations on Athlete of the Week, Marjorie Plants '21 and Marissa Chow '20.
