Change is coming to Gloucester High football as the Lions will play home games under the lights on Friday nights for the first time since the school on the corner of Market Street and Route 130 opened in 1962.
Night football was a regular event in Gloucester in the 1940s and 1950s at the old Charles Street Stadium.
But the Lions have been a Saturday morning team since the new high school was opened at the corner of Market Street and Route 130 in 1962.
Goodbye, Burlco/Olympic American.
Goodbye, Tri-County Royal.
Hello, West Jersey Football League.
This season marks the end of an era in South Jersey football. Next season, teams from the Burlco/Olympic, Tri-County, and Mercer County-based Colonial Valley will join together to form the West Jersey Football League.
When Gatto took the mound this season, more than two dozen major-league scouts gathered behind the backstop to chart his every pitch. Gatto embraced that pressure, according to St. Augustine coach Mike Bylone. Gatto went 7-1 with a 0.94 ERA, and St. Augustine won the Cape-Atlantic League American Division title as well as the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic.
