Bosco beats Ramsey & Ramapo for Bergen Title

Memorial Day Weekend 2011


The Bergen Record did a nice job over the weekend printing the facts and not belaboring the point that Don Bosco is "that far ahead" on the NEXT LEVEL of the Baseball meter than it's opponents in Bergen County.

Last week, Mahwah had a chance vs. Don Bosco until the Ironmen pulled ahead for good in the 6th inning. Their batting lineup, pitching and excellent fielding proved to be too much for fellow Bergen County teams over the weekend.

Saturday at Noon, the Good Energy Staff witnessed first hand the Excellence of Don Bosco Prep at Demarest H.S. against an undermatched Ramsey team starting it's number 3 pitcher. Perhaps an earlier County tournament would allow for teams with less depth in their pitching rotation to compete with regional or parochial schools, but not with the tournaments happening at the same time.

The Good Energy Staff hopes that Tuesday's matchup of Mahwah at Ramsey H.S. is a more evenly played State Playoff match-up between Group II Teams and crosstown rivals. Mahwah's Walker Larson should be back on the hill for the TBIRDS after an impressive 4-0 shutout of Glen Rock on Friday. Larson should be paired up with Ramsey's #1 Chris Mellis.

Good Luck to ALL The GE Athlete's "in the Game!"

Captain’s pep talk rallies Ridgewood

Friday, May 27, 2011


RIDGEWOOD – With her high school career on the line, Sammy Giordano looked her teammates in the eyes and made a bold statement few people outside of the Ridgewood huddle would have believed: The Maroons were going to win the North Group 4 girls lacrosse state title.

It didn't matter that they were trailing by seven with only 13 minutes left. It didn't matter that their opponent, Hillsborough, had outplayed them to that point. All that mattered was that they believed it could happen.

Giordano instilled that belief with her speech.

Top-seeded Ridgewood went on to score eight straight goals to complete an epic comeback and win the sectional title with a 15-14 victory Thursday. It's the second consecutive sectional title for the Maroons, who will face Washington Township in the Group 4 final Thursday.

None of it would have been possible without Giordano's passionate speech after Ridgewood had fallen behind, 14-7, and called a timeout.

"I told them that we had to want it, that we had to dig deep and play with heart and believe we could win," Giordano said. "We weren't playing the way we normally play. We were down by seven goals, and that's a big deficit to make up. But I never doubted we would win."

After the captain's speech, neither did her teammates.

Ridgewood (19-1) started its rally 30 seconds after the timeout and didn't stop until junior midfielder Kelci Smesko (five goals) scored the game-winner on a rocket shot with 1:36 left. Kaitlin Concilio, Renee Olsen, Lindsay Weiner and Giordano (three goals) all scored during the run, and the Maroons won the last nine draws of the game to keep it going.

"Sammy is such a great leader on this team and her words really meant a lot to me," Smesko said. "I can get down on myself sometimes, and she picked me up to turn my own game around."

No. 3 Hillsborough (20-3) built its lead with Gianna Minutillo (four goals) and Elyse Malecki (two) using their speed to get by the Ridgewood defense. But after Malecki scored to give Hillsborough its seven-goal cushion, Ridgewood's defense tightened up.

Senior goalie Isabel Sippel (nine saves) came up with two huge stops on free shots when Ridgewood was in the early stages of its comeback and the defense of Kiley Donovan, Sammy Yates and Courtney Tarleton created two big turnovers down the stretch. That kept Ridgewood's run going, as did the draw controls of Olsen.

Olsen was at the center circle for all nine of the closing draws, and she controlled every one of them. Olsen flicked the ball to the same spot where her teammates were centralized for most of the run, and even popped one to herself and scored to pull Ridgewood within four.

"My hands were shaking so hard taking the draw [because] I was so pumped up," Olsen said. "We knew we had to come back and win. We got a pep talk and we somehow got all the confidence in the world and picked it up."

Giordano's pep talk did more than just give Ridgewood confidence. It made the Maroons believe.

That time of year: 24/7

The Fairfield University rowing teams enjoyed another strong showing at the Dad Vail Regatta, highlighted by the women's pair capturing the gold medal.

The women's pair included Krissi Gorsuch and Jessica Keefe, who combined for a first-place finish in all three of its races. The duo started with a first-place run in its heat, picking up a time of 7:34.10 which sent them to the semifinals. In that race, Gorsuch and Keefe secured a top time of 8:18.20 to gain the Grand Final. With the medal on the line, the pair edged Loyola Marymount, Pitt, Brock, Georgia Tech, and Case with a time of 8:12.92.

Congratulations, KRISSI!

Waldwick Shocks Westwood 14-12 in the 7th

Wednesday - May 11, 2011


Waldwick, NJ

The game was scoreless through 3 innings thanks to decent pitching and a lot of nerves in the opening round of the Bergen County Tournament.

Westwood broke the scoreless tie with three unearned runs in the top of the 4th. Waldwick failed to score in the bottom half of the 4th and then ALL Hell broke loose.

The Cardinals went up 12-4 in the top of the 7th to seemingly put the game out of reach. Never say NEVER - the Warriors came back in the 7th with 10 runs including a walk-off Grand Slam!

Good Energy's Chris Basso pictured hit a bases clearing double with two outs in the 7th to keep the rally going.

We are so excited Chris came through in his senior year and Waldwick is advancing in the County Tournament. Mahwah and Ramsey won as well, so Good Energy is extra present in this year's tournament.

Delbarton Beats Morristown 3-0 on Emotional Day

Monday, May 9, 2011


As ironic as Bruce Shatel coaching baseball & hockey for Delbarton across town from his alma mater Morristown - today the Green Wave faced the Colonials on Harry Shatel's field the day we memorialized the passing of Harry Shatel on April 30th in Florida.

Pictured is Good Energy owner's friend, Bruce Shatel (left) head coach for Delbarton taken prior to his team's 3-0 shutout of Morristown on the field named after his Dad last year. Shatel gave a heartfelt & emotional eulogy for his father just hours before this picture at St. Mary's Abbey, Delbarton.

Harry Shatel was the winningest baseball coach in New Jersey history recording 752 wins in 38 years of coaching for Morristown.

Today's game between crosstown rivals was a welcomed diversion for both teams mourning the loss of this Morris County & New Jersey legendary baseball coach.

It was how Harry Shatel would have wanted his Memorial to be concluded, with the Green Wave playing the Colonials today at his field. After all, baseball was the game that he so passionately taught for four decades and provided him a venue to develop young men - many of whom were at the Memorial Service today.

Gorsuch Leads Stags to US Nationals in Varsity 4

May 3, 2011


With gold medals in hand, the Fairfield University rowing teams returned from the Spring Metropolitan Championships with the overall championship trophy last Saturday afternoon. The title was Fairfield's first at this event since the 2003 season.

“Rowing is generally seen as a collection of independent races for which each crew takes on its own event, and the winning or losing only effects that one crew, “ Director of Rowing David Patterson said. “However, some of the regattas we attend do reward a full team effort. It's nice to come away from the Spring Metropolitan Regatta not only with a bunch of medals for the athletes, but to come away with a championship title and trophy for the team.”

It's been a while since the Stags were able to get on the water, losing a valuable experience when the MAAC championships were cancelled earlier in the month. With that loss of competition, the big challenge for the team was to show that, despite the cancellation of the MAAC and the frustration of not being on the water, it still was able to progress and gain more speed through training.

“I always promise the best racing opportunities to the athletes that work the hardest and show that they are truly competitive in training,” Patterson said. “While I see that as a reward, our student-athletes must realize that there is also great physical challenge involved with such reward.”
The women's varsity four continued its successful spring with two outstanding performances that lead to a gold medal for Krissi Gorsuch, Jess Keefe, Molly Graffam, Bridget Butterworth, and coxswain Julia Merenda. The boat finished first in its heat with a time of 7:54.0, which qualified it for the final. The Stags won the final with a time of 8:17.0, more than 10 seconds better than runner-up Sacred Heart.

“I am thrilled for this combination, especially since the final was the fourth race in less than four hours,” Patterson said. “It was nice that they were able to win again after their previous victory at the Sacred Heart Invitational. It was also great that they ended on a positive after their marathon efforts on the water for the team.”

GREG ROZAR soars for TBIRDS in 2-0 Win

Tuesday, May 3, 2011


TENAFLY – Sometimes it doesn’t matter how you get there, as long as the end result is a win.

And Mahwah will take any win it can get.

"It says a lot," Mahwah senior pitcher Walker Larson said. "We found a way to win facing a great pitcher and only putting up two runs."

Behind Larson’s complete-game, two-hit shutout, the Thunderbirds (10-5) defeated Tenafly, 2-0, on Monday to kick off one of Mahwah’s toughest weeks of the season. Northern Highlands, Ramsey and Lakeland are still to come.

"It’s huge," junior second baseman Adam Hanig said. "We have a big week ahead of us, and to get this first one is definitely big for us."

Facing Tenafly senior left-hander Nick Hroncich, the Thunderbirds managed six hits, but took advantage of opportunities in the third and fourth innings to scrape together their two runs.

In the third, center fielder Greg Rozar hit a one-out single to left. With two outs, he stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error. Hanig’s RBI single to left put the first run on the board.

"Just to get that one run ahead helps big time," Hanig said. "We’re used to playing with leads. When we play ahead, we’re a lot better."

Sophomore, Rozar has been thrusted into action with the loss of one of Mahwah's middle infielders. We are excited for Greg to continue to make an impact for the `Birds with his Speed on the bases & in the outfield!
