Tony Garczynski has been removed as Gloucester Catholic's football coach after 13 seasons at his alma mater. Gloucester Catholic athletic director Pat Murphy announced the move Wednesday morning. "This was a difficult decision to make," Murphy said in a statement. "Coach Tony Garczynski is an alumnus who has worked tirelessly as a former player, assistant coach, and head coach. "Coach Garczynski has conducted himself with integrity and with the good of Gloucester Catholic students in mind.

On a warm, blustery day, it wasn't a surprise that Gloucester Catholic quarterback Zach Barlage threw three touchdown passes. The twist was that all three were into the wind. "It was so windy, I didn't even know if I could pass with the wind," Barlage said after Gloucester Catholic beat Pope John XXIII, 37-14, yesterday on Gloucester High's field in the opening round of the Non-Public 3 state football tournament. Barlage, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior, completed 11 of 17 passes for 211 yards.

Faced with the choice of accepting two forfeit losses or playing two top-10 teams, Sterling girls' basketball coach Bill Ulrich opted for the latter. The Silver Knights showed why they aren't afraid to put their top ranking on the line during last night's 50-43 win over Gloucester Catholic in a nonleague game between teams ranked in the top 10 in South Jersey by The Inquirer. When Woodbury disbanded its varsity team in January, the Silver Knights could have taken the two forfeit wins.

Chelsea Duffy made her teammates happy with two sweet passes that led to the game's first two goals. She also made her coach happy when she didn't pass. "Chelsea is too unselfish sometimes," Gloucester Catholic girls' soccer co-coach Kate Ormsby said. "She's always trying to get her teammates involved. Sometimes, she's better off taking it herself. " Duffy, a senior midfielder who has committed to attend the University of Delaware, did a little of everything in leading third-seeded Gloucester Catholic to a 4-0 victory over 14th-seeded Bishop Eustace yesterday in a first-round game of the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association tournament.

Does softball get any better than this? Tri-County Conference division champions Gloucester and host Gloucester Catholic clashed Saturday night in front of an estimated 1,000 fans at the Ponytail League Complex to see who would emerge with the unofficial city softball crown. Gloucester Catholic, the Diamond Division winner, last year edged Gloucester, the Classic Division champ, 1-0, and the Lions were looking for revenge. However, Olivia Lawrence made sure that the Lions, ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, didn't get their payback.

Dennis Barth, who enjoyed two successful seasons as Gloucester Catholic's boys' basketball coach, has resigned. Barth turned in his resignation late last week, athletic director Jerry Scharff said yesterday. "He just had a busy schedule, and he wanted to slow down," Scharff said, adding that Barth will continue as the school's baseball coach. "Dennis did a great job with the basketball program, and we certainly appreciate all the time he put into the job. " Barth, who will be getting married tomorrow, is a 1980 graduate of Gloucester Catholic.

Even on a sloppy field with a heavier and soggier baseball, Gloucester Catholic junior righthander Pat Sperone can still be a dominant force. The only thing Sperone struggled with yesterday was staying dry during a 4-0 win over city rival Gloucester in the semifinal of Audubon's Ralph Shaw tournament. The game was called in the bottom of the fifth inning with Gloucester Catholic batting. The Rams had runners on first and second with one out. Yesterday's second game between Paul VI and host Audubon was postponed until today at noon.

The season didn't exactly start with a bang. "Our kicker missed the ball on the opening kickoff and I think it went three yards," Pennsauken coach Clint Tabb said. "I'm sure there were people in the stands going, 'Oh, here we go again. Another one of these seasons.' " But by the time Tabb and his coaches and players walked off the field at Winslow Township on Saturday night, they were convinced that 2016 was going to be something different. Coming off a 1-9 record in 2015, Pennsauken opened the new season in high style with a 42-14 victory over a Winslow Township team that was No. 22 in The Inquirer preseason Top 25. "I was telling the guys, 'You know what?

If all goes according to plan, by this time next year Casey Murphy will be just the regular coach of a regular football team. He won't be surrounded by seniors who have endured all manner of adversity. He won't have to rave about the players who have somehow managed to maintain their spirit and focus despite ample opportunity to check out. "We don't want to be a feel-good story," Murphy said of his Gloucester Catholic football team. If all goes according to plan, by this time next year Gloucester Catholic won't be an example of resilience, of persistence, and of the best thing about the 95-team West Jersey Football League's ability to arrange schedules to benefit programs in all stages of development.

Bishop Eustace Prep and Gloucester Catholic High were well-represented Friday on the second day of the Major League Baseball draft, as two graduates from each school were selected.

Jesse Barbera is not a pitcher. He's an athlete who can pitch. That might seem like semantics, but it was enough of a distinction to convince Eastern coach Rob Christ to give the baseball to Barbera for the Vikings' biggest game of the season. "I coach by my gut a lot," Christ said after Barbera worked a complete game, allowing just five hits with one walk in Eastern's 6-1 victory over Gloucester Catholic in the title game of the 43rd annual Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic on Sunday night.

Mike Shawaryn knows the way many Gloucester Catholic baseball fans feel about Bishop Eustace. Zac Gallen knows the way many Bishop Eustace baseball fans feel about Gloucester Catholic. The Rams and Crusaders are among the most decorated programs in New Jersey baseball history. They also are fierce rivals. Shawaryn knows it. He lived it as a star pitcher for Gloucester Catholic. Gallen knows it. He lived it as a star pitcher for Bishop Eustace. But three years after graduation - separated by time and distance from the roaring fire of that high school competition - Shawaryn and Gallen look at each other and see something other than an old foe. They see a kindred spirit.

This year, the two baseball games between Gloucester Catholic and St. Augustine couldn't have been closer, and most South Jersey sports fans wouldn't mind seeing a third matchup. Most, of course, except the fans of Christian Brothers Academy and Bishop Eustace, but we'll get to that in a minute. On Saturday, Gloucester Catholic advanced to the semifinal of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic with a 2-1 win over St. Augustine in a crisply played game at Deptford between two of South Jersey's top teams.

Maybe the Flyers should start paying closer attention to a certain high school hockey team in their own backyard. Gloucester Catholic High, you see, has suddenly become an unofficial feeder program to NHL teams. Two former Gloucester Catholic stars - Johnny Gaudreau, a two-time all-star left winger with Calgary, and blossoming Ottawa right winger Buddy Robinson - took part in a meet-and-greet Thursday with about 50 of the school's hockey players. "Quite honestly, hockey is a big reason why a lot of these guys came here," Gloucester Catholic athletic director Pat Murphy said after the assembly in the school's gym. During Thursday's session, Gaudreau, whose father, Guy, coaches the Rams hockey team, and Robinson talked about their backgrounds and their different paths to the NHL before a question-and-answer period.

Tyler Mondile has thrown a no-hitter this season. He has thrown a two-hitter with 12 strikeouts. He has made a career of mowing down opposing hitters. This was different. This was a battle. When Gloucester Catholic second baseman Adam Bonomo fielded a grounder and fired to first for the final out of a 4-3 victory over St. Augustine on Sunday, Mondile didn't let out a rebel yell in celebration of dominant pitching. His emotional reaction was acknowledgment of a gutsy, grinding effort against quality opponent.

Dennis Barth isn't overly impressed, even when so many are praising him for one of the more eye-opening baseball resurgences in South Jersey. It's hard to believe, but Barth is already in his fourth season as baseball coach of Rutgers Camden, which has more than held its own while playing in the ultra-competitive New Jersey Athletic Conference, among the best Division III leagues in the country. The Scarlet Raptors are 10-4 and ranked No. 8 in the American Baseball Coaches Association Division III Coaches Poll and No. 10 in the D3baseball.com poll.
