The Upper Main Line YMCA Swim Team recently won the 2019 Pennsylvania YMCA East District Championship.
UMLY had 133 of its 270-member swim team qualify for the event. The team won the following age groups:
- 11/12 Girls
- 13/14 Girls
- 15 and Over Girls
- 13/14 Boys
- 15 and Over Boys
“I am very proud of our swimmers,” said Louis Petto, the head coach of the UMLY Swim Team. “They had a lot of success performance-wise, but we also hosted the event, so they put a lot of work in and with all the family involvement, it really made for an overall great event.”
UMLY has 59 swimmers moving on to the YMCA State Championships at Penn State from March 22-24 and currently has 24 swimmers who have qualified for the YMCA Nationals in Greensboro, N.C., from April 1-5.
The Fire Company awarded Unit Citations to the following agencies who worked together on a serious accident on Route 202 in December 2018:
- Abel Brothers Towing
- East Whiteland Township Fire and EMS
- Goshen Fire and EMS
- Malvern Fire and EMS
- Paoli Fire and EMS
- Uwchlan EMS
- West Whiteland Fire Company
In mid-December, Fire Rescue and Emergency Medical Units were dispatched to southbound Route 202 at the Route 30 Bypass westbound ramp in East Whiteland Township for an accident with entrapment. Arriving units from East Whiteland found a large dump truck on top of a passenger vehicle with five civilians trapped inside and the dump truck driver confined to the cab of the truck.
An action plan was quickly developed, and additional resources were requested to assist. A rotator heavy wrecker from Abel Brothers Towing was escorted to the scene to lift the dump truck off the passenger vehicle, so those patients could be extricated. All crews worked safely and quickly to rescue and treat those that were injured.
“A thank you goes to these agencies who worked together to safely complete the complex rescue at hand,” Matt Fink, Deputy Director of Fire and EMS told the agencies. “Your actions, dedication, and courage prevented a much greater tragedy, and you are commended for such.”

It prepares students for the dynamic healthcare industry through flexible, online classes that can be taken part time, while still remaining employed as a healthcare professional. The healthcare industry has significant needs for managers nationwide.
“A logical ‘next-step’ for healthcare workers is a healthcare management position that can elevate careers,” said Anne Marie McCauley, Director of Allied Health and Health Care Management. “The need for educated and experienced managers is said to increase 20 percent in the next few years.”
