Delbarton moved up and took Chaminade’s No.4 spot in the national rankings and the Flyers slid back to No. 6.
The Delbarton Green Wave lacrosse team was ranked No. 8 nationally by laxpower.com when they hosted the No. 4 ranked Flyers of Chaminade on Saturday. Matthew Killian scored with 3.9 seconds left to give his Green Wave a 6-5 win over the Flyers. “That was a moment I will never forget,” said Killian. “The ball started bouncing my way and I was lucky to get the ball at the end. I’ve got to credit our coach. We’ve been coming in and playing wall ball, which helps with our quick stick movements. That came in handy there at the end.” Delbarton is now ranked No. 4 nationally and Chaminade is ranked No. 6. Delbarton is now 16-0 on the season and has a bye in the first round of the 2013 NJSIAA Tournament. The Green Wave will play the winner of Pope…

Mike Berry, a 15-year-old sophomore at Delbarton School from Basking Ridge, is part of a band whose performance of an Allman Brothers classic won a recent "Battle of The Bands" competition against 200 other musicians from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Bridgewater's potent offense was led by Scott Beida, who scored three of the game's first goals and had five goals overall. The Green Wave got on the scoreboard in the second period on a goal from Grant VanFossen. Connor Bibly scored two goals and Jamie White and Matt Oplinger add goals for Delbarton.

Steve Badt, who now works at a Washington soup kitchen, the latest alleged victim to come forward.
Steve Badt said he recently had a conversation with his 8-year-old son about what had happened to him as a teenager. On Tuesday, standing on the grounds of the Morris County Courthouse, Badt, 44, a former Parsippany resident and Delbarton School graduate, spoke of the sexual abuse that took place at the hands of a monk at the Morris Township Catholic school between 1979 when he was in the seventh grade, and 1985, when he was in the 12th grade. Badt, and another former Delbarton student who remained unnamed, joined an existing lawsuit against St. Mary’s Abbey, which operates Delbarton. The original suit was filed in March by Phillipsburg attorney Gregory G. Gianforcaro on behalf of twin brothers William Crane Jr., and Thomas Crane, formerly…

Also, Travers leaves St. Mary's Abbey
- POLICE & FIRE
Tuesday, April 24, 2012
An attorney says the ex-Delbarton School headmaster and monk facing allegations of sexual misconduct took and passed two lie detector tests, according to a report on NJ.com. The statement comes just days after the same former headmaster, the Rev. Luke Travers, severed ties with St. Mary's Abbey, which directs the school. "He is no longer the responsibility of the abbey," Abbey spokesman Anthony Cicatiello told NJ.com. The site reported that attorney Gerard Hanlon of Morristown said Travers took the lie detector tests because he's adamant he's done nothing wrong, and wanted to demonstrate it. Allegations of misconduct mounted over the past year. The school first acknowledged publically in January Travers was being investigated for what it …

Program for teen children of Honeywell employees
In about the same era as the wildly popular television series Mad Men, every kid went through a phase of wanting to be an astronaut. NASA’s retirement of the space shuttle may have dampened the enthusiasm of some of today’s kids for careers in space, but the space camps run at the U. S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL., are still popular with teens. The Honeywell Leadership Institute runs two five-day programs for the teenage offspring of employees, and one of the participants was Brian Walsh, a junior at Delbarton. Brian said Honeywell posted an application form online, and he filled it out and answered several essay questions. Honeywell looked at essays, grades, extracurricular activities and other factors, he said. The camp …
