Highland senior Frank Angeloni Jr. will continue his baseball career at Concordia College.
From the moment he got to Concordia College for a visit in September, Highland senior Frank Angeloni Jr. knew it was where he wanted to continue both his education and his baseball career. On Wednesday afternoon, inside Highland's library and media center, Angeloni donned a Concordia baseball cap as he signed a national letter of intent to attend and play ball at the small Bronxville, NY, school. "The players are going to be good to play with," Angeloni, a product of Blackwood Kiwanis Little League, said. "They're good guys." Angeloni, who got a chance to practice with the team during his overnight September visit, also pointed to Concordia head baseball coach Craig Everett as one of the top reasons he wanted to be a Clipper. A pitcher and…

Highland senior Joe Sigismondi, who tossed a no-hitter on May 2, is Gloucester Township Patch's Athlete of the Spring Season.
Baseball teams need several things to succeed. Chief among them are an ace at the top of the pitching staff, a sure-handed shortstop and a middle-of-the-order hitter than can both get on base and drive runs in. The Highland Regional High School baseball team had all these things this season and it came in the form of one player. Senior Joe Sigismondi—who is the Gloucester Township Patch Athlete of the Season—was the heart and soul of Tartans this season, producing everywhere he was put, while also serving as a team leader. Highland coach DJ Gore called Sigismondi one of the most versatile players he has ever coached. “He hits third for us in the lineup and pitched every big game we had,” Gore said. “When he’s not pitching he’s our …

MARLTON—Ann A. Mullen Middle School won its first-ever South Jersey Middle School Baseball League title Thursday with a 6-3 win over DeMasi Middle School, of Marlton.

A trip down south did wonders for the Highland baseball team.
It was a big week for the Highland baseball team, which traveled to Florida over spring break and returned home with its first victories of the season. Meanwhile, a Triton softball player collected her 100th career hit and the Timber Creek boys’ tennis team remained undefeated. Below is a look back at the week that was in local sports, as well as a glimpse at some of this week’s schedule. BASEBALL A trip to Fort Pierce, FL, appears to be exactly what the Highland baseball team needed. The bats came alive for the Tartans last week in an 18-0 win over Stuyvesant, NY. Chris Giambri and Joe Sigismondi each had a double in the game, while Matt Miniconzi tripled. The Tartans pounded out 12 hits, while Frank Angeloni picked up the win on the …

Timber Creek exploded for a nine-run third inning in a 15-5 win over Triton Monday.
RUNNEMEDE—Timber Creek junior Billy Burton missed much of the baseball preseason due to a sprained ankle that put him on the shelf for a couple weeks. He made his return Monday, batting out of the nine spot for the Chargers in their season-opening contest against local rival Triton. If Monday’s performance is an indication of what he will bring to the table this season, Burton may not be hitting ninth for long. Burton was 2-for-5 with two runs and a team-high four RBIs in the Chargers’ 15-5 win over the Mustangs in Olympic Conference Patriot Division action. “I just took advantage of all the bats I could get,” said Burton. “I kept the ball down and just hustled it out.” Burton was hardly alone in offensive achievement. The Chargers got …
