Josh Schwartz, Pitching Coach One of the best pitching products from South Jersey, Josh Schwartz was a three-time Division III All-American athlete at Rowan University where he earned honors as the threetime New Jersey Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year.

In 2005, Josh set the NCAA All-Division record by winning 37 consecutive games. During the fall of that year, Josh served as a volunteer coach for the University of Pennsylvania. In 2011, Josh was named to the South Jersey Baseball Hall of Fame. ―Josh is an excellent teacher and has been an excellent addition to our staff,‖ said Dickson. ―His experience as a pitcher and in professional baseball have enhanced the quality of our program. He works with the outfielders as well as the pitchers.‖ Under the guidance of Schwartz, the GCC program has seen six pitchers awarded All-American status. Thirteen of his former athletes signed scholarships and four have inked professional contracts. Schwartz is a graduate of Rowan University. He is currently a middle school Physical Education teacher in Deptford Twp. and works several baseball camps throughout the year. He resides in Blackwood with his wife Laura.

2013 Season Outlook The 2013 Roadrunner line-up looks to contribute to the program’s successful legacy by winning its seventh National Championship title. The 2012 Baseball team reached the College World Series for the third consecutive year. The team played consistently throughout the year and was ranked Number 1 in the country but faltered in the World Series. The team finished 5th in the country. Year after year the baseball program has been synonymous with excellence. With six national championships (1992, 1993, 1999, 2000, 2005, 2010) under its belt and 47 players advancing to the ranks of professional baseball and countless numbers advancing to fouryear programs, the tradition of winning and succeeding has become customary — this year should be no different. ―We are attracting high profile student athletes who are willing to work on and off the field to continue the proud tradition of Gloucester Baseball.‖ Head-Coach Mike Dickson holds high expectations for the upcoming season. ―We are a more balanced team this year than in years past. We should be able to hit and steal many bases this year. Gloucester returns two everyday starters and six pitchers from last years team. ―We lost a many of our talented sophomore class however we return Tom Kain, Eric Frain in our starting lineup and return a very talented pitching staff,‖ commented Dickson. Infield: The infield returns two starters from last years club. Tom Kain (Tottenville) will return at third base. As a freshman Kain broke Gloucester’s hit record. Also returning is Eric Frain. Frain saw time at second base and as DH in 2012. The shortstop position will be patrolled by two players Division I transfer Bryan Pearlmutter and sophomore

Bret Uhing. Both of these players can and will play multiple infield positions throughout the spring. Sophomore transfer Dan Oneill will see time at first base. AJ Hanson will see time at third/ first and will DH Outfield: This outfield group will show a combination of power and speed. We are fortunate to have four High School centerfielders patrolling our outfield. All four of these outfielders can play all three outfield positions. Matt Ackerman is a Rutgers transfer, he is a versatile outfielder who can cover ground and will be our leadoff hitter. Narciso Crook is a physical outfielder that combines power and speed. Crook was an All-State performer in High School. Bret Phillips and George Monsen round out the outfield. Both will play both right field and may see time in left field Catching: Sophomore Transfer Alex DeBellis will see most of the time behind the plate. Alex was a three time player of the year in North Jersey. He was a FirstTeam all state in 2011. John Brocious and Tom KAin will see time back there. All three catchers are leaders on the field. Kain is a converted first basemen has shown very good arm strength from the position. Pitching: The Roadrunners will attack with a five-man rotation and a couple spot starters. Sophomore Jeff Singer and Bill Mendek will compete to lead the staff. Jeff Singer was 11-1 as a freshman and a second-team All American. Mendek returns after going 8-3 as a freshman. The staff also return sophomore Andrew Furber. Furber was 7-2 as a freshman with 48 strikeouts. Rounding out the rotation will be freshman Mike Sullivan. Sullivan was Staten Island pitcher and player of the year. Sophomores Ron Reagan and Alex Summers will compete for the 5th spot.

Gloucester County College The concept of a community college in Gloucester County dates back to 1965 when the county electorate approved referendum to establish a community college. Some 600 charter students were the first to enroll at Gloucester County College (GCC) in September, 1968, attending classes at Deptford High School and Monongahela Junior High School. In February 1970, ground was broken for the first buildings on the new campus. That May, GCC held its first graduation for 180 men and women. Today, the college offers more than 70 associate degree programs and certificates and serves nearly 6,800 credit students. The Continuing Education division provides non-credit and training programs to an additional 10,000 area residents. GCC’s cuttingedge academic programs are geared toward current market demands. Network Management and E-Commerce prepare students for immediate employment or transfer. Paralegal and Ford ASSET students complete internships and graduate ready to excel in the workforce. The Teachers 2000 cohorts of education majors are getting ready to meet the state’s shortage of teachers in the coming decade. A quality faculty is key to the success of GCC’s programs. They are experts in their fields, enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and know-how. In addition, services for students are second to none: financial aid, scholarships, career assistance and transfer counseling enrich every student’s experience. Growth of the GCC campus has kept pace with program and service enhancements. In autumn 1970, students began attending classes in

the Instructional Center, the first building completed on campus. The College Center, Physical Education Center and Fine Arts Center opened in 1971. In 1988, GCC dedicated the Library and Student Services Center. In 1993, the College constructed the Early Childhood Education Center and the Nursing, Allied Health and Technology Center. Also included in the expansion program was an addition to the Physical Education Center housing the Gloucester County Police Academy, Fitness Center and enhanced physical education programs. In 1997, GCC dedicated the Learning Resource Center. This $3 million project includes the ground-level Barnes & Noble College Store, an interactive TV classroom, a large academic services lab with 60 computers and two classrooms. An $8.1 million expansion program began in 2001, including construction of Scott Hall, a $6.5 million Science & Technology Center housing chemistry and biology facilities and state-of-the-art computer labs and classrooms. A separate project involved a $1 million conversion of the concrete Grand Plaza into a gently sloping green area, with walkways linking most major campus buildings.


2012 Season in Review The 2012 men’s baseball team was one that demonstrated consistency and determination. It was made up of several returning position players and two sophomore starting pitchers. The beginning of the year saw the Roadrunners poised to return to the College World Series. The team lost a key component of that pitching staff when returning starter Bobby Applegate was lost for the season after his second start of the season. The team battled during the regular season to bring its record to 47–11 heading into the Region XIX tournament and winning their third consecutive GSAC Regular season title. GCC defeated Camden County Community College to win its third consecutive Region XIX Tournament— the 18h in the last 21 years. This game earned the runners an automatic bid to the NJCAA World Series in Tyler, TX. The Roadrunners stumbled out of the gate at the World Series losing to

NIagra in the opening round.. The team defeated Montgomery Germantown but the run would end after a heartbreaking loss to Tyler Junior College in an elimination game. Moving On The Roadrunner tradition of moving student athletes onto four-year colleges continues: Zach Passerelle– Marist University Eric Barbieri– Newberry College Eric Linares– East Stroudsburg Sean Feeney –UNC PEmbrook Andy Sullivan– UNC PEmbrook Kevin Needham– LIU Eric Sellitto– Rowan University Bobby Applegate– UMBC
