The SCOREgasm!!

The Scoregasm- This, now legendary, chant was created towards the end of the 1998-1999 season by a bunch of avid Lakeland Ice Hockey fans. But not until the 2000-2001 season when Justin "The Famous" Paulhamus lead the chant did it become immortalized and rasised to level it is today.
As sure as the face off after each Lancer goal, Justin rises to his feet and leads the Lancer faithful in the greatest chant of all time. The crowd responds to his chants of SCORE!!! with their own chant of GASM!!! and the whole thing is repeated for as long as Paulhamus instigates.
Leading a cornucopia of other phenomenal chants in the Lancer fan arsenal, the SCOREGASM is by far the best chant of all time in any sport. It shows the unity of the best fans ever and how they are able to get behind their team and, in their own way, help them win the game. Although frown upon by school officials for unexplained reasons, the SCOREGASM has since been adapted and modified into the SCORESPASM. No matter what the cheer, the spirit and unity of Lancer fans is what the chant is really about. Lakeland Hockey, without a doubt, has the best fans with the best cheers and their spirit is well dispayed in the words and actions of the LANCERS #1 FAN, Justin Paulhamous!!!!

2001-2002 NJIHL Divisions
from
Appeared on 11/15/00

The New Jersey Interscholastic Hockey League will be realigned for the 2001-02 season in an attempt to cut travel time for varsity ice hockey programs across the state.

The league's 64 teams currently share just 21 rinks. Many teams travel more than an hour three times a week for games.

The league alignment is currently based on strength of programs. Beginning in 2001-02, the Gordon Conference will include the eight strongest programs, regardless of geography, while the 56 remaining teams will be grouped according to geography in the Northern, Central or Southern conferences.

The three conferences will be divided into Red, White and Blue divisions based on strength of programs. Red being the strongest, followed by White, then Blue. The Morris County Scholastic League and the Colonial Conference will remain the same.

Lakeland Hockey History

HISTORY OF LAKELAND HS ICE HOCKEY AND THE LANCER ICE HOCKEY ASSOCIATION

In October 1990, a Ringwood Hockey Association group, led by Nick Sahanas, Bob Telschow, John Yurco, Kevin Kearns, Pete Rojek and Roger Marcotte, developed an ice hockey proposal for Lakeland Regional High School. It appeared that the program for the 1991-1992 school year would be approved, but the State of New Jersey withdrew funding and on April 4,1991, the Lakeland Board of Education cancelled the hockey program due to budget caps.

In April of 1992, Roger Marcotte and Ken Morris discussed new alternatives for a hockey program at Lakeland. A petition was passed around to local businesses. Results showed an overwhelming support for ice hockey.

This was presented to the Lakeland BOE on July 7, 1992. Ken and Roger then founded the "Lakeland Hockey Boosters" and were later joined by Bob Auerbach in August of 1992.

The first meeting of the "LHB" was held at Skyline Pizzeria. The meeting was attended by Roger Marcotte, Ken Morris, Bob Auerbach, Ed Garrison, Eileen Shudtz-Powers, Jack Weaver, Pete Rojek, Walter Sawka, and John Yurco. Roger M. proposed a yearbook and Ed G. volunteered his services to develop one. Officers were nominated: Roger Marcotte- President/ Treasurer, Ken Morris- Vice President, and Bob Auerbach-Secretary. During the next couple of months, "LHB" reps attended public BOE meetings with the proposals to begin a fully funded Varsity Ice Hockey Program at LRHS for the 1993-1994 school year. The BOE were split in their support for the program and suggested the name "Booster" be dropped from the group's name. Thus the Ringwood-Wanaque Ice Hockey Association (RWIHA) was born. In December of 1992 at a public BOE meeting, Steve Niccas announced that he was including ice hockey in the 1993-1994 athletic budget. The RWIHA organized attendance at every BOE meting by ice hockey supporters. After almost 6 months of meetings, at the Annual School Budget Election in April 1993, the budget, including an ice hockey program was passed!

The Lancers were accepted into the NJIHL Division II. This was the beginning of the varsity ice hockey team at LRHS. Martin Hughes and Ken Morris were selected as the first coaches. Kevin Lanzilli and Craig Rojek were the first team captains. The first varsity game was played on December 4, 1993 vs. Indian Hills high school. The first Lancer goal was scored by freshman Sean Macys. A junior varsity program was later added for the 1995-96 season fully funded by the RWIHA.

For the 2000-2001 season, the RWIHA changed its name to the Lancer Ice Hockey Association to clear up any confusion between itself and the Ringwood Ice Hockey Program.

Every year since, we have supported the Lakeland ice hockey team and have fully funded the Junior Varsity program. Many original members are still involved today. These individuals put in many hours of their own time to help raise money to keep Lakeland Lancer Ice Hockey going, even though their kids are no longer at Lakeland. If not for the dedication of these people, Lakeland Ice Hockey would not exist.
