2011: Aiming for its third consecutive New England Prep School Athletic Conference bowl championship, Pingree fell just short in their quest after a 27-26 setback to Rye Country Day School. This one came in the Dan Rorke Bowl at Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, Conn.

Trailing by a touchdown late, Pingree scored on a 17-yard run by Nick Antenucci to get within a point. Opting to go for the 2-point conversion and the win, the Highlanders were denied, however.
