2020 Johnny Gaudreau Scholarship Golf Tournament Canceled

Gaudreau logoDear Friends,

It is with genuine regret that we have decided to cancel this year’s Johnny Gaudreau Scholarship Golf Tournament, scheduled for July 24th, due to the ongoing crisis affecting our world, our country and great state of New Jersey. We do so with heavy hearts. The scholarships that are funded through the Gaudreau Family Scholars Program remain an important priority for all of us. More than 30 students at Gloucester Catholic have been positively impacted by the generous support of our golfers and sponsors. There is hope. We have already started the planning for the 2021 Johnny Gaudreau Scholarship Golf Tournament, one that we promise will be bigger, better, and more impactful. For your support of Gloucester Catholic and the Gaudreau Family Scholars Program, we remain grateful. We send our best wishes to you and your families for good health in these exceedingly difficult and challenging times. In the true spirit of Gloucester Catholic, we will come through this stronger.

All the best,

The Gaudreau Family and Ed Beckett ’78, Principal

Dennis Barth Returns as Gloucester Catholic Baseball Coach

Dennis Barth pixVeteran baseball skipper Dennis Barth will return to Gloucester Catholic as head coach of a Rams’ program he helped to establish as one of the best in New Jersey over the past several decades.

Barth left GCHS in 2012 to serve as head coach at Rutgers-Camden, where he guided the program to the only two NJAC conference championships in school history. Barth replaces Adam Tussey, who resigned as Rams coach after four successful seasons.

“I’m excited to return as coach – everyone knows our high expectations here at Gloucester Catholic, and coach Tussey left a solid foundation that we will continue to build,” Barth said. “We have a proud tradition of winning here, and I know the program will continue to be successful.”

A former player at Gloucester Catholic and a 1980 graduate, Coach Barth has a long list of accomplishments, including:

  • A career record of 485-94-1 over 19 seasons.
  • Recognition as National High School ‘Coach Of The Year’ in 2000
  • Recognition as South Jersey High School ‘Coach Of The Year’ in 2003, 2005, and 2007.
  • Recognition of Gloucester Catholic as High School National Champions in 2001.
  • Nine state championships, including his final NJSIAA Non-Public title in 2012.

Coach Barth is nationally recognized as coach of the Brooklawn American Legion baseball team, winning a Legion World Championship in 2001 and making multiple appearances in the Legion World Series Tournament

Athletic Director Patrick Murphy congratulated Coach Barth, who met with his new team earlier this week, on his return.

“We welcome Dennis back as coach,” said Murphy. “He’s excited to return, and of course his return will be beneficial to our program.”
