John Hay
Coach • West Chester

As a track coach at West Chester Henderson High School for 25 years, Hay's runners captured many Ches-Mont, District 1 and Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association championships. The longtime coach and teacher also had much success at the prestigious Penn Relays. Hay was just as involved coaching swimming at the scholastic level and in the community. Competitive swimming was not just a job for him; it was a way of life and devotion to his swim students came naturally. John Hay died in mid 2010 but the legendary coach lives on through his students scattered throughout the United States. There are many former student-athletes of his who are now coaches, espousing the same coaching style as their mentor and hero.
