Lower Merion High School is a C Division team that competes in the Southeast region of Pennsylvania. It has experienced major success in its history, and qualified for nationals in 2003 and 2018. It is in the same school district as Harriton High School, Welsh Valley Middle School and Bala Cynwyd Middle School, and receives students primarily from Bala Cynwyd.

The team is defined by a whimsical, democratic culture, featuring fun hashtags and occasionally Comic Sans, an "open" invitational scheduling philosophy, and a distinctive level of focus on first-year members.

At the 2018 National Tournament, Lower Merion received the DuPont Team Enterprise Award.
