2019 Season Outlook: HGP alum Vince Rossomando ’02 compiled a gaudy 46-16-1 record in his three seasons before resigning last spring due to the increased demands of his full-time job. So former HGP star Greg Olenski takes over the talent-laden program that includes three seniors who are Division I commits in John McNamee (Rider University), Phil Stahl (Monmouth University), and Ryan Staropoli (Lehigh University). This team should rule the BAL yet again and hopes to do some damage in the 2019 district and state playoffs.
