Turning back the pages…

2006 – Brigantine grad Brian Crilley scored 11 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter to help Holy Spirit quell a furious comeback and defeat Atlantic High for the third straight time over two years, 59-57.

2000 – Holy Spirit transfer Jim Crilley came off the bench to score 6 points and garner 9 rebounds as Atlantic High beat Rancocas Valley 72-59.

1993 – Crilley’s Circle Tavern beat the Seahawks 41-12 in flag football to win the Western Division Championship. Matt Stanks threw six touchdown passes, five to his favorite receiver Gary Melton. The Washington Redskins had scouts at the game. They must have been wondering why they cut Melton. Circle’s offensive line that averaged 259 ponds that included Jose Flores, Paul Marrandino, and Steve Olsen consistently gave Stanks the time and protection to hit his receivers. The defensive line included Bobby Daniels, Tom Refill, and Michael Bell. Charley Keel was the team’s outstanding kicker. (Gary Melton’s son Gary is following in his dad’s footsteps by setting scoring records at Cedar Creek High School.)

1981 – Dawn Crilley was selected as a Beachcomber girls All Star to participate in the annual men’s and women’s softball game.

1992 – Atlantic High freshman Tiffany Trockenbrod scored the only two goals in the Vikings’ 4-2 soccer loss to Millville.

1992 – In a cross-country match between Atlantic High and Holy Spirit, locals finished in the following order: 10th, Julie Sluzenski (AC); 12th, Colleen Corcoran; 14th, Heather Stanley; 15th, Terry Boyer. All were of Holy Spirit.

1992 – Brigantine North School track Coach Patti Jordan finished first in the NJEA Boardwalk Run.

1980 – Brigantine was swinging as President Carter designated 1980 the Year of the Coast. Dave Peters and his Yankee Doodle Dandies were featured at the Circle Tavern, the present site of CVS. The Brigantine Castle was luring in bus customers from all over the East with a two-for-one “Scare You to Death” special. The Cole Brothers were featured at the Brigantine Motor Inn (Laguna Grill). The Barefoot Pub was swinging with the sounds of the surf and the smell of stale beer.

1963 – A week after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Sand Bowl was played in the Atlantic City Convention Hall. Brigantine Rams All Stars representing the East were John McManus, Gary Wagenheim, Joe Dorn and Fred LaSpina.
