SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS



Wave Then andNow

Hank Greenberg began coaching Audubon Baseball in 1961. During his 16 year tenure, his teams were consistently ranked among the elite in South Jersey, winning 7 Conference Championships, 5 Sectional Titles and one State Championship, Audubon’s first in 1975. Coach Rich Horan’s 1994 Baseball team began an amazing journey for GreenWave Baseball, winning the first of a historic three repeat State Championship run, 1994, 95, 96.

On March 1, 2014 The Audubon Baseball Booster’s held an Audubon Baseball Alumni Reunion to honor Coach Greenberg and his 1975 Championship Team and Coach Horan and his 1994 Championship Team and to raise funds for this year’s varsity team to compete in Myrtle Beach. The evening was a huge success on many levels. All but two players from the 1975 Championship Team attended, some Coach Greenberg had not seen in over 35 years.

When Coach Greenberg addressed the crowd of over 200, you could hear a pin drop. He praised his team, the hardworking ethics of GreenWave baseball and successor Coach Horan’s accomplishments. He continued speaking about how proud he was to be part of Audubon Baseball; he was humble, and “just grateful to be remembered.”

With the Alumni Reunion and other fundraising, the booster club raised the money for the team’s trip to Myrtle Beach. The 2014 team went 3 for 4 in the Mingo Bay Classic, losing in the semi-final to host team, Waccamaw, SC. Another year of hard work paid off as the 2014 team brought home another Conference Title with their win over Woodbury on May 21st. The season ended with a 20-10 record.

Girls’ Softball: The Girls’ Softball team had a fantastic season winning their Conference Title with a 15-0 record during the regular season. They made it to the semifinal playoffs, losing to Gloucester in the third round.

Congratulations to both the girls and boys teams for an outstanding season.
