News from the Superintendent
All Sports Issue, January 2018
Considering that Barnegat High School is only thirteen years young we have accomplished quite a lot in a short amount of time and this year is no different. In Basketball, our very own Mike Revello recently scored his 1000th point as a Bengal. Scoring 1000 points in a basketball career is no meager feat. The accomplishment means Revello needs to remain focussed, practice hitting the net over and over and over again, avoid injury, and be skilled at getting around his opponents.
Speaking of basketball, our head coach Mr. Puorro also had a huge success this season. With his bengal basketball players, he has received his 100th career win. For a high school so young, we have made some great strides quite rapidly.
Not to be outdone, our girls basketball team has also had a spectacular season. Under the coaching leadership of Coach Nicolini, Shannon McCoy also scored her 1000th point this season. It is virtually unheard of to have both the boys and girls basketball teams have great seasons AND have a male and female player both score 1000 points in the same season.
Congratulations to Coach Puorro, Mike Revello, Coach Nicolini, Shannon McCoy and all of our high school boys and girls basketball players who continue to make Barnegat proud.

Barnegat Football Boasts Outstanding School Record
In addition, Coach Davis is at 65 wins. For a football program so young, this is quite an accomplishment. Barnegat was also named two years in a row as a top high school for athletes by NJ.com. We were named number 36 out of 50, outranking both Jackson (number 40) and Point Pleasant Beach (number 44). Only four high schools from Ocean County were named in the results.

Athletic Director Insights
In the next five years, Germano remarked that coaches no longer make "rookie" mistakes. They are more seasoned themselves, are now experienced coaches in their sport, and are more adept at working with parents.
Germano is also honored that other schools are trying to emulate what we do. The "triple threat athlete" program at BHS is now being picked up by other high schools and it doesn't end there. Germano also has plans for the future to recognize athletes in an athletic hall of fame. Well done, Barnegat!
Reflections from the Superintendent
The power that coaches and teachers have to positively impact students is tremendous. I hope that the relationships our teachers and coaches have with students and families are positive and memorable ones. Let's Go Bengals!
