History of LHY

History of Lakeland Hills YMCA Competitive Swimming
Lakeland Hills opened its doors on Fanny Road in 1971 with a six lane pool, locker rooms and a few offices. Since then the Y and the team have grown considerably. With a continuous line of quality coaches, the team has established a history of excellence throughout the Middle Atlantic Region of the United States. The Y has a winning tradition in the State Meet and the East Field Regional Meet; second to none. Lakeland Hills has produced many outstanding athletes, including Olympic Trial qualifiers and four individual Y National Champions. Our swimmers not only excel in the pool, but also in the classroom. Swimmers’ success at LHY and academic prowess has helped make it possible for them to be accepted into many distinguished schools. Our commitment is to excellence, not only in the pool, but also in life.

LHY Swim Team Goal Statement
The goal of the LHY swim team is to provide swimmers the opportunity to develop their individual potential to the fullest and to improve their competitive skills. This is done while giving each swimmer the chance to experience the satisfaction of success in a fun and nurturing environment. A full team effort is important at every meet, with every swimmer receiving the support of the team and coaches.

Performance & Championships

LHY is very proud of our tradition of excellence within the state, region, and country since its inception in 1972.  In addition to having a very strong winning record in our dual meets, we take great pride in our state titles over the years.  Back in the 70's and 80's, we competed in the North Meet and the North-South Meet.  The North Meet was against other teams in NJ and could be considered the now called NJ Y State Championships.  The North-South Meet was a regional meet against teams in NJ, Deleware, Maryland, and eastern Pennsylvania.  The North-South Meet changed its name to the East Field Regional Championship upon reorganization in the YMCA fields.  The North Meet and the North-South Meet did not award a combined team title.  Once the meets became the State Meet and the East Field Regional Meet, the combined team titles were awarded.  The East Field Regional Championship Meet was retired in 2001.  The list below shows LHY's dominance in these meets over the decades we have been around.
