WR volley-girls lead league at 6-0

By W.L. Bill Allen Jr. / Special to The Leader

WOOD-RIDGE (Sept. 30, 2010) — Despite a somewhat lop-sided loss to perennial power Rutherford on Monday, Sept. 20, and a stinging setback from frequent champion Secaucus last week, the volleyball contingent from Wood-Ridge High School is still having a very healthy start to its 2010 season.

Following those out-of-league losses to RHS and SHS, the Lady Blue Devils still stood at a solid 6-3 overall, with a 6-0 mark in their half-dozen conference contests in the brand new NJIC/Meadowlands B Division.

RUTHERFORD (Sept. 30, 2010) — Rutherford sophomore forward Alexandra Arnold boots the ball toward the Garfield goal from about 18 yards out and records the final tally of the tussle in a 6-0 blanking of the Boilermakers on Monday, Sept. 20, at Tryon Field. Heading into this week’s action, the Lady Bulldogs stood at a very healthy 4-1 overall, following an 0-1 loss to Pascack Hills and 6-0 whitewashings of Elmwood Park and Garfield and a 1-0 leveling of Lodi and a 5-0 humbling of Mary Help of Christians. Thursday, Sept. 30 should see the Lady ‘Dogs hosting Hawthorne.

Former star now guiding soccer team at Lyndhurst High

By W.L. Bill Allen Jr. / Special to The Leader

LYNDHURST (Sept. 30, 2010) — When George Washington was stepping down after eight years of service as the first president of the United States of America, the world held its breath, waiting to see, if, indeed, there would be an orderly transition of power in what was a key moment in the fledgling democracy.

In strikingly similar fashion, the job of being a head coach at Lyndhurst High School, positions which never have any shortage of qualified applicants, often seem to be passed down to a quite worthy, but often just as familiar as qualified, successor.

Becton blanks Bears, keeps coveted trophy

By W.L. Bill Allen Jr. / Special to The Leader

EAST RUTHERFORD (Sept. 23, 2010) — There are still, quite clearly, many, many ... many things that are yet to be worked out in the brand-new North Jersey Athletic Conference.

Not the least of which is the dearth (and almost death) of the previously plentiful, traditional and very much beloved slate of Turkey Day games, a list which, for many, many years has included Lyndhurst facing Becton Regional with possession of the venerated Hall of Fame Bowl Trophy for the ensuing year on the line.

Queen of Peace alum excels at Temple

Photo by James Dombrowski

PHILADELPHIA (Sept. 23, 2010) — Queen of Peace graduate John Palumbo (#77) is in his junior red shirt year as a Temple Football Owl. The former high school lineman helped lead a potent Queen of Peace football program under Coach Andy Cerco to a state championship game. Palumbo became the starting center for Temple last season. He was originally the starting guard before Golden moved the 6-foot-6-inch, 320-pound lineman to center. In the above photo, Palumbo, nephew of salon owner Robert Palumbo, points out the defensive scheme to quarterback Chester Stewart. Temple under Golden has in five seasons taken a floundering football program that was on the verge of extinction at the Division 1 Level and turned the Owls into a success. The Owls have started the 2010 season at 3-0, their best start since 1979. Palumbo has been receiving rave reviews at the center position, opening the eyes of professional scouts in the NFL.

Rutherford volley-girls reap huge early season victory

By W. L. Bill Allen, Jr. / New Jersey Sport/Action

RUTHERFORD (Sept. 16, 2010) — While the volleyball contingent from Rutherford High School had another outstanding season in 2009, finishing with a sparkling 23-5 overall record, the Lady Bulldogs did not record any championships and one big reason for that title dearth was the team Pascack Hills, which topped RHS in both the second round of the Bergen County Tournament and quarterfinal round of the State Group 1 playoffs.

On Monday, Sept. 13, in Montvale, though, the locals did exact a small measure of revenge by clipping the home-standing Cowgirls, 15-25, 25-22, 25-17, to move to 2-0 overall and to 2-0 in conference combat, as well.

Becton gridders ready to rumble in new league

By W. L. Bill Allen, Jr. / New Jersey Sport/Action

EAST RUTHERFORD (Sept. 9, 2010) — While it may or may not yet have an official name, the football contingent from Becton Regional High is ready to rumble in its brand new league.

“As far as I know, we’re calling this thing the NJIC (North Jersey Interscholastic Conference), Division 2A,” explained Wildcats fourth year head coach Roger Kotlarz, who boasts a 22-9 mark in his first three years at BRHS. “We had a meeting with all the coaches in the new conference, worked out some details and some of us even talked about picking names for the divisions, but we just never got around to doing it.”

Defending champion Golden Bears ready to run

By W. L. Bill Allen, Jr. / New Jersey Sport/Action

LYNDHURST (Sept. 2, 2010) — The gap between the two most recent conference crowns copped by the boys cross-country contingent from Lyndhurst High School was well over 40 years, as the Golden Bears ran to 2009 Bergen County Scholastic League/National Division after not having garnered a title of any kind since 1965.

Now, the defending champion locals are optimistic that the gap between last year’s crown and the next one will be much, much shorter.

WR lands four on All-BCSL list

WOOD-RIDGE (Aug. 26, 2010) — Following a season in which the Wood-Ridge High School softball squad reeled off eight straight wins and earned the program’s first state section title, as well as it’s first trip to the state finals, four members of the Lady Blue Devils have garnered some level of post-season plaudits, as senior Hailey Bartek, junior Danielle Matoli and sophomores Nicole Fleck and Alyssa McKhann were all elected to the All-BCSL/National Division rosters by that conference’s coaches conclave in the final year of existence of that legendary league.

Gaels grab last BCSL baseball brass ring

By W. L. Bill Allen, Jr. / New Jersey Sport/Action

RUTHERFORD (Aug. 26, 2010) — When it comes right down to it, championships that are earned via the one-and-done type tournament format frequently go to teams that happened to get hot for a while at just the right time, with those champions not always being the best clubs in their bracket.

Take for instance, the legendary Villanova win over Georgetown in the NCAA title tussle, or the classic Princeton shockers against top-ranked foes.

Becton/Rutherford Senior Babe Ruth ends up going 1-1 in playoffs

By W. L. Bill Allen, Jr. / New Jersey Sport/Action

EAST RUTHERFORD (Aug. 12, 2010) — Playing without a ‘full deck’ is a term usually used to describe someone who is doing something crazy.

In similar fashion, playing without a full pitching staff is, indeed, doing something crazy in the world of baseball. However, that’s pretty much what the Senior Babe Ruth League team, made up of by players from Becton Regional and Rutherford high schools, did this summer.
