Lawndale Hires New Head Swim Coach
We are excited to announce that Jim Sheridan has agreed to coach the Lawndale Lizards swim team heading into the 2020 CSA swim season. Coach Sheridan has a long list of swimming accomplishments both as a swimmer and a coach. He was Marshall University’s most decorated swimmer and was inducted into the Marshall University Hall of Fame in 2012.
Currently Coach Sheridan serves as Head Swim Coach at Greensboro College.
Prior to moving to Greensboro Coach Sheridan served as Head Swim Coach and Dean of Students at Columbus North High School and Donner Swim Club in Indiana. He successfully coached Columbus North to three consecutive state titles between 1998 and 2000. He also has a girls’ title while at Columbus East, becoming one of the very few who have state titles at more than on school.
Coach Sheridan has received many awards such as Indiana Coach of the year nine times, four years with the boys’ team and five years for the girls’ team. Coach Sheridan’s teams have produced over 90 All-Americans and an average of four Olympic Trial swimmers over the last 10 trials over the last 40 years. Prior to his stint at Columbus North, Coach Sheridan was Head Swim Coach for Men and Women at Clemson University from 1991 through 1994. The women’s team reached a Top 20 ranking, while he had to rebuild the men’s program with no scholarships.
Coach Sheridan’s passion for teaching is unparalleled and we are fortunate to have someone of his quality join our team. Please join us in welcoming Coach Sheridan to the Lawndale family.
