Remembering a legend

Academic accolades

Coach Steve Solomone had 301-48 career record at Gloucester County College By MATTHEW SHINKLE The Sun

RYAN LAWRENCE/The Sun

A sign outside Monongahela Middle School celebrates Tracy Guidotti, who was named the school district’s 2020 Middle School Teacher of the Year. Veronica Snyder was the Education Support Professional (ESP) of the Year for the middle school. The full list of district honorees includes: Teacher of the Year Jessica Lieve and ESP Stephanie Martell at Central Early Childhood Center; Teacher of the Year Katie Rickert and ESP Philip Vasta at Good Intent Elementary; Teacher of the Year Kevin Sherry and ESP Kimberly Helfand at Deptford High School; Teacher of the Year Kristi Will and ESP Lisa Smith at Lake Tract Elementary; Teacher of the Year Heather Imhof and ESP Suzanne Pedrick at Oak Valley Elementary; Teacher of the Year Heather Comuso and ESP Lori Smith at Pine Acres Early Childhood Center; and Teacher of the Year Kimberly Layton and ESP Jennifer White at Shady Lane Elementary.

Longtime Deptford resident Steve Solomone passed away earlier this month, leaving behind a legacy of winning, personality and caring to all those who met him. The for mer Gloucester County College (now Rowan College of South Jersey) men’s basketball coach amassed a 30148 career record with the Roadrunners from 1991 to 2001. In his most impressive season, Solomone coached the team to a perfect 30-0 record in the 1993-1994 season while also capturing the NJCAA Division SOLOMONE III National Championship. The college’s Executive Director for Athletics Brian Rowan, who also played for Solomone, said his impact and presence went beyond just basketball. “Coach was somebody that always found the positive at the end of the day,” Rowan noted. “He taught all of us as players to play hard and play the right way, but at the end of the day, he always found a positive way to end it. “He taught so many lessons over the years and

‘We hope to vaccinate even more individuals here’ Gloucester County site does its part to administer protection against COVID-19 By ANTHONY J. MAZZIOTTI III The Sun The light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel is in sight.

Besocial. Likeuson Facebook! TheSunisn't justinprint.Like usonFacebook foradditional photos,stories andtidbitsof information aboutyourtown.

As of January, a full nine-anda-half months into the COVID-19 pandemic, a mega vaccination site was set up in Gloucester County as a joint effort be-

tween the county department of health, office of emergency management and the state of New Jersey. The site is located at the Rowan College of South Jersey and one of six across the state. “Since opening in January, the site has continued to become extremely efficient and organized,” Commissioner Director Robert M. Damminger said. “Every day we find something else we can improve on. We are here for the long haul so it’s very important to us to adapt and continue to serve the individuals with our greatest ability.” The site is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day of the week and averages 3,000 shots per day

– though the state’s goal is 2,400 people per day. The Gloucester County site surpassed 75,000 vaccinations on Feb. 19. “Gloucester County remains confident we can continue to do more vaccines daily, but that is dependent on vaccine availability,” Damminger added. More than 20 nurses work every day providing vaccines to New Jerseyans. Per Damminger, the average wait time ranges from 8 to 45 minutes. “We’re working to make that even quicker,” he said. “Now that individuals are receiving their appointments via NJVSS (New Jersey Vaccine Scheduling System), we’re confident we can get individuals in and vaccinated in under 30 minutes, not counting the mandatory 15-minute observation time.” Folks interested in receiv-

ing the vaccine must register through the NJVSS which is managed by the state of New Jersey; Gloucester County officials are unable to view, add or edit appointments. “It was a little rocky in the beginning,” Damminger said. “But like I said, every day the site improves and we’ve worked through the issues,” With 75,000 vaccinations given in less than two months, the site has really hit its stride. “We continue to hear praise from those who are vaccinated at the site about how well-organized, quick and easy our site is. We hope to vaccinate even more individuals here in the near future.”

A Message from

Amy Mansue President

and CEO Inspira Health

New Jersey has now officially surpassed one million first-dose COVIDvaccinations. I hope you share my confidence that we are well on our way to providing everyone in New Jersey a vaccine—who wants one—as more supply continues to become available. But just as quickly as the vaccine came to market, so have new questions and concerns. At Inspira Health, we are committed to being a trusted health care provider and resource to all. Recently, we learned of questions regarding the timing of women receiving both a vaccination and mammography screening. The COVID-19 vaccine can cause potential side effects of temporary swollen lymph nodes that could be misread during the mammography as a sign of breast cancer. Mammogram screenings save lives. COVID-vaccines can also help save lives. Larry Neustadter, D.O., chair of the Inspira Department of Radiology, and Allison Lawyer, M.D., breast imaging specialist, emphasize that women should get both their mammograms and vaccines as quickly as possible—and when available—to reduce major health risks. If you are due for a mammogram and if possible, try to schedule your appointment prior to your first vaccine doses. Rest assured, if you already received a COVID-vaccination prior to mammography, Inspira has the expertise and protocols in place for any findings. Inspira Health follows the Society for Breast Imaging guidelines. This topic, and many others, were addressed at our Virtual Community Town Hall –Vaccines Part 2—last Thursday. We gathered our medical experts to present the latest information on the vaccines and we provided a live question-and-answer session. We will post that town hall’s recording on our website, www.inspirahealthnetwork.org/covid19. There, we also update information regarding COVID-19 testing, the vaccines, and current visitor guidelines at our facilities.

NM-00451450

To commemorate Black History Month, I would like to share another story from Inspira’s history. William J. King, D.O., one of the first Black doctors to join the medical staff at Underwood-Memorial Hospital in Woodbury. From his childhood in Coatesville, PA, Dr. King always wanted to be a doctor. After completing his undergraduate studies at the Virginia Union University, he hoped to pursue medical school. He first studied physical therapy at the University of Pennsylvania and then continued his medical studies at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. King then served in the U.S. Air Force before establishing his family medicine practice in the Woodbury community. Dr. King served as the chair of the department of Family Practice and as the director of the Family Medicine Residency. When members of the King family and the hospital staff gathered to surprise Dr. King at a 2014 reception, physicians, nurses, and family members shared their stories of his compassion and how he inspired them with his commitment to provide wellness and prevention screening for the community.

Until we may have the chance to meet, stay safe, and be well.

Going into each season, his goal was always the same. “Each year, his main thing was that he wanted to win on the defensive end,” said Ronald. “He wanted to be one of the top please see COACH, page 8

Coach: Solomone had 301-48 record at Gloucester County College continued from page 6 five defenses every year, in terms of fewest points allowed, and he wanted that regionally and nationally. He believed if he could have one of the best defenses, he would be in contention for winning the region and nation every year.” The coach’s philosophy paid off in a big way during his time at GCC. His aforementioned career record indicates an already accomplished leader, but Solomone also won six NJCAA Region 19 championships while coaching eight All Americans during his decade with the college. Solomone was a member of three basketball halls of fame — the Rowan College Roadrunner Hall of Fame, the Gloucester County Sports Hall of Fame and the NJCAA Men’s Basketball Hall of Fame — and often returned to the Roadrunner Athletic Complex in recent years before the pandemic.

Special to The Sun

The late Steve Solomone (left), former men’s basketball coach at Gloucester County College, passed away earlier this month. Here, he is honored during ‘Coach Solomone Night’ in 2017. His appearance was always something administrators, coaches, players and others looked forward to. “He would come back quite a bit to our games and keep in touch with various parts of our school, and speak to our teams for motivation well after his coaching days were done,” Rowan said. “He was a well-known figure on our campus and amongst basketball people in South Jersey … Whenever he came around, it was an event for us. He’d tell all kinds of great stories and make it a big night when we got to see him.”

Reaching new heights Led by Alison Ahern, Cherry Hill West seniors have helped transform the future of the program

MATTHEW SHINKLE/South Jersey Sports Weekly

Since joining the team as a freshman, Cherry Hill West senior Alison Ahern was immediately an impact player in the Olympic Conference. Now in the midst of her final year with the Lions, Ahern is looking to put together yet another strong season alongside her teammates.

By MATTHEW SHINKLE Sports Editor

Before she played even a single second of high-school basketball, Alison Ahern already had it in her head that she wanted to score 1,000 points with Cherry Hill West. The goal was there, it was just a matter of making sure it was realistic. “When I went to school freshman year, I already had that goal in mind,” Ahern said. “I

was really unsure at first of what high-school basketball would be like, but after I played my first game, I kind of realized it was absolutely attainable if I worked really hard at it.” Now in the second half of her senior season, to say Ahern has worked really hard may still be selling short her accomplishments with the Lions. In her first three seasons with West, she led the team in scoring all three years, surpassing the 1,000 point mark in the team’s final win her junior season.

In dramatic fashion, Ahern scored a career high of 32 points in the 63-48 win over Woodrow Wilson and became the first girl to cross the 1,000-point threshold in the 21st century. Dan Butler, in the midst of his 12th season as head coach at West, said Ahern’s impact on the program has brought it to a new level. “Her impact has been immense in multiple areas,” he noted. “You have her presence in the middle of the paint, and she’ll often draw double teams,

Story idea? Email us: news@southjerseysportsweekly.com

so that has helped bring some confidence to surrounding players around her to be aggressive offensively and defensively. “She’s been on an upward trajectory ever since her freshman year,” Butler added. “She’s drawn so much respect and attention from our opponents over the years, so her job’s gotten more difficult with her growing reputation. But she’s continued to step up to the challenge.” In the four years before Ahern’s freshman year, the program won a combined 10 games. Meanwhile, the Lions won 32 games in Ahern’s first three seasons and are coming off back-to-back appearances in the NJSIAA sectional tournament. Butler said Ahern’s presence and innate basketball talent have certainly been strong components to build a team around, but plenty of credit also goes to the class with whom Ahern came to West. This year’s starting five includes Sophia Graffeo, Kayla Thompson, Michela Auguadro and Bella Sylvester, as well as Ahern. Together, they have had a substantial impact on the program, their coach said.

“That class brought in five amazing athletes, and it was really all five of them that have changed this program together to make us a respectable, competitive team,” Butler explained. “Making the playoffs the past two years, hosting a playoff game last year … It's a tribute and a credit to all five of our seniors on how they’ve been able to take this program to the best heights (it) has seen in decades.” The group of girls Butler calls the Fab Five are all three-sport athletes who will graduate from West with an anticipated 53 varsity letters, as long as the spring seasons can be played. Ahern said her success in the stat sheet each night, as well as the program’s recent achievements, are in large part due to the chemistry and high-level play of those around her. “Not only are they amazing athletes, but they’re amazing people, too, and we all have the same mindset when it comes to athletics,” she added. “I feel like we all have the same drive when we’re out there wanting to win and leave it all out there on the court, so it makes it easier to play together as a team.” ■
