A member of the Magistri, he taught science and coached wrestling at Pingry from 1957-1994.
In the second annual Mountains versus the Seas Girls Soccer Festival last weekend, seven New Jersey teams, including Pingry, came together in friendly competition, raising nearly $40,000 for Into the Light, a non-profit working to reduce the stigma of depression and suicide in teens and young adults.
The event, which was launched last year by Watchung Hills and hosted by Pingry, invites teams from the top two conferences in the state—the Skyland and Shores Conferences—to square off for a good cause. (Last year, $50,000 was raised for Go4theGoal, a New Jersey non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of children with cancer.)
Alternating locations each year, the Shore Conference hosted last weekend. Pingry, off to a strong start this season at 6-2, traveled to the Capelli Sports Complex in Tinton Falls on Sunday to take on Shore High School, which they defeated, 4-1. With all the matches played, the Shore Conference emerged victorious, defeating Skyland, 6-1 (last year saw the same score, but in Skyland's favor).
Go Big Blue!
