The Brookdale men’s cross country team placed sixth at the NJCAA Division III Cross Country Meet at Sunken Meadow State Park in Selden, NY.
Improving from an 11th-place finish just a year ago, the Jersey Blues saw one first-team All-American honoree, freshman John Arnone (Shrewsbury), finish fourth overall.
Patrick O'Boyle (Atlantic Highlands) was the second Jersey Blue to cross the tape, finishing in 19th overall while Joseph Mullen (Neptune) finished 27th. Rounding out the scoring was James Dalton (Long Branch) and Ryan Lundy (Laurence Harbor), who placed 47th and 56th, respectively.
The Jersey Blues will return four of its top five runners for next season.
The Brookdale men's basketball team earned an impressive victory to open up the Brookdale Recreation and Events Center with a 93-56 defeat of DeVry University.
Freshman Tunell Polk (Howell) had little trouble, as the 6-2 forward scored 19 points in his debut.
Keyport-native Tony Lopez was not far off Polk's scoring output, draining three trifectas, to tally 17 of his own. Chris Jetter (Matawan) scored 10, and every other member of the Blues made at least one field goal in the win.
The Brookdale men’s soccer team ended their historic 2010 season on a high note, defeating #6 Howard Community College (MD), in penalty kicks.
The Jersey Blues entered the consolation round after suffering a tough defeat to host-school Herkimer County Community College in the opening round but quickly bounced back to end their season with a win.
Howard got on the board quickly with a Ronnie Morris score in the 19th minute.
The score would stay that way for the duration of the first half.
Four minutes into the second half, Brookdale leading scorer Tomas Cholula (Freehold) assisted a Jack Parkin (Marlboro) goal for the equalizer and then Emmanuel Gonzalez (Colts Neck) found an open Cholula in the 73rd minute for what appeared to be the game-winning tally.
Howard wasn’t done, however, and with eight minutes to play, Xioa Yang found the back of the net to even the score at 2-2.
According to NJCAA tournament regulations, a consolation game that ends in a tie will bypass any overtime and go straight to penalty kicks.
Sophomores Sebastian Carbonell (Old Bridge), Brett Barilari (Rutherford) and Cholula all made good on their attempts; and Antonio Jorge (Long Branch) made a highlight-reel diving save, for the Blues to come out the victors and end their NJCAA tournament run at 1-1.
