 The Week in Review: Gloucester Catholic Captures McKenna Classic


Gloucester Catholic’s baseball team, rankled No. 1 in South Jersey by two local newspapers, ran their season record to 11-2 on Saturday by beating West Deptford 3-2 to win the McKenna Classic for the second straight season. The Rams, coached by Dennis Barth, won an opening-round game 14-2 over Penns Grove.

 Mike Mercer struck out nine batters to silence West Deptford in the title game to earn Outstanding Pitching honors.

 Senior John Brue collected his 100th career hit in the victory over Penns Grove and was named tournament MVP.


 Annie Robinson slammed a pair of home runs, but it wasn’t enough as The Lady Rams dropped a 19-11 decision to Shawnee in a quarterfinal game of the Hammonton Invitational on Saturday. One of Annie’s blasts was a grand slam to spark the GCHS offense.

The Lady Rams had earlier scored a 5-1 victory over fourth-ranked Eastern in an opening-round game.

 Holocaust Survivor Charles Middleberg Speaks to GCHS Students

Marlton resident Charles Middleberg brought a real-life history lesson to Gloucester Catholic students prior to the Spring recess break on April 3 when he told a heart-wrenching story about how he and his family survived the Holocaust during World War 2 in Paris.

 Middleberg, who was 12 years old during the roundup of Jewish families in France by the Nazis in 1944, captivated an assembly of senior students with his story of determination and survival in a war-ravaged country.

He and his brother Victor were moved around the country and survived the Holocaust. His father Robert Middleberg also survived despite serving time in a concentration camp, but his mother, Bertha, did not.

“This was a shameful time in history that no one can deny happened,” he told the students. “I know, because I lived it, and it is still very real in my mind.”

 Asked whether he “hated” his captors for what they did to his family, Middleberg stated simply:

“I learned not to hate and not to become a part of any group that hates. This has been an important lesson I adhered to my entire life.”

 He formerly lived in Philadelphia for several decades following the war before moving to Cherry Hill and later Marlton. He worked as an electrical engineer designer as his life’s career.

 Middleberg has four children: Maurice, 59; Brenda, 57; Lynne, 50; and David, 47. His wife, Mathilde, whom he met during the early 1950s, passed away in 2009.
