Belmar parochial school sustained roof damage during storm, schedules late-week opening
St. Rose Grammar School in Belmar, closed since Hurricane Sandy, is set to re-open Thursday, officials said. The pre-kindergarten-to-grade 8 parochial school sustained roof damage during the storm, but was spared from the intense flooding that the Catholic parish’s high school took on. In a recorded message sent to parents Monday night, Sister Kathy Nace, principal of St. Rose High School, said the grammar school would re-open Thursday, three days later than expected. Nace said a communication error was to blame for the delayed opening of the 6th Avenue school. She was not more specific. The high school, located on 7th Avenue, is operating on a limited schedule to accommodate pre-planned class trips while scads of volunteers and a disaster…

The Bucks County Coroner is awaiting several test results before he can say how Gabrielle Hillman died.
The death of Gabrielle Hillman of Belmar still is under investigation, and it may be several weeks before authorities determine how she died. Hillman, 21, was discovered in her dorm room at Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, Pa., on Oct. 8. She was laid to rest Oct. 16 after a funeral Mass at the Church of Saint Rose. While her family, friends and classmates try to come to grips with their loss, investigators in Bucks County still are trying to determine how she died. Bucks County Coroner Dr. Robert Campbell said last week week that his office is awaiting the results of toxicology and other lab results. "That's going to be probably another three weeks or so before I get those back," Campbell told Patch. On the night of Hillman's death…

Bart McInerney currently serving 18-year sentence for child endangerment conviction
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Former St. Rose High School baseball coach Bartholomew McInerney was granted a new trial by a state appeals court this week, APP.com reports. McInerney's lawyer, Edward Bertucio, in January asked a state appellate court in Trenton to overturn the conviction, claiming the coach did not have supervisory authority over the boys, the Star Ledger reported at that time. Bertucio sought a retrial based on, in his opinion, several flaws with the original trial, the report says. McInerney, 45, of Spring Lake Heights, was sentenced to 18 years in prison on ten counts of child endangerment for engaging in sexually explicit conversations with his players and paying them to send him text messages of their masturbation habits from 2001 to 2007, the …

Tim McInerney stepped down as St. Rose head boys soccer coach last week, ending an 11-year run of success with the Purple Roses.
In his 11 seasons as the head boys soccer coach at St. Rose High School, Tim McInerney has led his teams through a number of memorable wins, but for him, no game was quite as memorable as a Shore Conference Tournament loss to Wall in 2002, McInerney’s second season. After losing a heartbreaker to the rival Crimson Knights earlier that morning, McInerney rushed to the hospital to be with his wife, Jodi, as she delivered their daughter. McInerney, a soon-to-be father of eight, is stepping away from his family on the field to spend more time with his family after 11 seasons, submitting his resignation to athletic director Chuck Rutan last week. McInerney and his wife are expecting their eighth child in early November. “I’ll always remember …

The Tournament of Champions final will be 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 20 at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford.
TOMS RIVER — Sophomore Katelynn Flaherty and freshman Marina Mabrey combined for 41 points to lead Manasquan past St. Rose and set up a Tuesday game with Gill St. Bernard for the state championship. The Tournament of Champions final will be Tuesday, March 20th at 8 p.m. at the Meadowlands IZOD Center in East Rutherford. With a spot in the NJSIAA final on the line and playing against a St. Rose squad that already beat her Manasquan team on a big stage, Warriors senior Michaela Mabrey did the opposite of what most other NCAA Division I recruits would do at the high school level. She played to get her teammates shots. For the second time this season, St. Rose took away Mabrey's scoring, but Flaherty and Marina Mabrey — Michaela's younger …

Chambers free throw clinches NJSIAA Non-Public A title; seedings decided Sunday for state tournament
Kasey Chambers had been here before. Not too long ago, either. Standing at the free throw line late in the game, as she had been Wednesday night against St. John Vianney, the St. Rose senior guard had two shots to finish off Immaculate Heart Academy. The first free throw bounced off the rim. Chambers dribbled the ball and took a deep breath. Then she sank the second, giving the Purple Roses a three-point lead. Immaculate Heart drove the length of the court, but Izzy McMahon's 3-point attempt bounced high off the rim and Diana Malanga corraled the rebound away from the crowd of Immaculate Heart defenders. Fouled on the play, Malanga sank the second of her two free throws, finishing off the Blue Eagles and lifting St. Rose to a 42-38 …

Showdown between two un-beatens ends 43-39
Two days after being chosen to the play in the McDonald's Girls All-American Game next month in Chicago, Manasquan senior guard Michaela Mabrey did not play like one of the best offensive players in the country for the first three quarters of her team's highly anticipated game against St. Rose on Saturday. When the Warriors needed her, however, Mabrey was at her best. The senior guard and University of Notre Dame recruit scored six of Manasquan's final eight points, including two tie-breaking field goals in the final 2:27, to help the unbeaten Warriors beat the previously unbeaten Purple Roses, 43-39, in front of a sell-out crowd at the McCann Athletics and Activities Center. Manasquan (21-0) entered the game No. 1 at the Shore in the …

After competing with the best the last three years, the Purple Roses might finally be the best
As they shifted their attention Thursday night to their most significant regular-season game together in four years as a coach-point guard combination, St. Rose girls basketball coach Joe Roman and senior Kasey Chambers recalled their most significant loss together. "Me and Coach Joe were just talking about the Trenton Catholic (Academy) game from two years ago," Chambers said after St. Rose's 67-26 win over Keansburg to improve its record to 21-0. "That was the best shot we had at a championship and the feeling in that locker room, we never wanted to feel like that again. That game has made us even hungrier the last two years." Chambers and senior teammate Samantha Clark were sophomore starters during the 2009-2010 season that ended with …

St. Rose H.S. principal says birth control policy puts her in moral dilemma between faith and employees
As Catholic officials across the country decry the Obama administration’s new birth control policy that would force religious institutions to provide their employees with free contraception, local officials are also concerned that the mandate would put them in an uncomfortable position between their morality and their duty to do what’s right for their employees. Sister Kathy Nace, principal of St. Rose High School in Belmar, said she is grateful that Church officials are fighting the policy, but is worried about the decision she might be faced with if the mandate, scheduled to take effect Aug. 1, 2013, remains unchanged despite nationwide protests. If religious institutions are not granted an exemption from the policy, schools and …
