Big Red will renew acquaintances with Big Blue in the latest rendition of Exeter/Andover Weekend this Saturday on the Exeter campus. The two schools first squared off 145 years ago, in 1878, and have battled on the field ever since, making it the oldest high school rivalry in the nation.

Our rivalry is truly special and historic, and filled with excitement, camaraderie and spirited competition. Whether you wear red or blue, this is a great opportunity to celebrate our students, our history, and add a new series of memories alongside a storied lineage of Exonians and Phillipians. 

The E/A program is in your pocket!
