From around 2010 until the 2019, there was about a decade in which, save for a few years, the Class B Central race was not a foregone conclusion. Dominant St. Rose teams had run roughshod over the division before the emergence of Point Pleasant Beach and resurgence of Mater Dei and while St. Rose still typically prevailed, there were several years in the last 10 that saw some legitimate races for the top spot.

That brief history lesson is relevant because, beginning with last season, the division is once again at the mercy of a dominant team and it is one that has risen from obscurity four years ago to championship contention in 2022. Ranney showed last year that it was on the cusp of turning into a major contender for championships and in rounding themselves into a team that could make a run a postseason title later this year, the Panthers are poised to overwhelm the division field.

Point Beach could be the only exception, with enough returning talent to hang with Ranney on any given day, and this season, those any given days are scheduled to be April 5 and April 25. Those two showdowns are likely where the division is decided, although Keyport’s standout one-two punch on the mound has the Red Raiders hoping to make a run at Point Beach for the public division title.

In predicted order of finish

Ranney

In a lot of ways, the 2021 season was a breakout campaign for the Ranney program. The Panthers won their first Shore Conference division championship, won a program record 16 games, beat a number of accomplished Shore Conference programs like Brick Memorial and Jackson Liberty, and made a trip to the NJSIAA South Jersey Non-Public B semifinals, where they lost a thrilling 9-8 game to perennial power Gloucester Catholic.

In other ways, however, 2021 might pale in comparison to what is to come. Ranney returns all but one starter from 2021 and will finally add its headliner to the top of the rotation. Junior left-hander A.J. Gracia verbally committed to Duke before his freshman season, but has yet to make an appearance as a pitcher. After the entire state lost the 2020 spring season, Gracia was unable to pitch in 2021 as well while recovering from left elbow surgery. That did not stop Gracia from swinging the bat to the tune of a .500 average and a slugging percentage just south of 1.000. Now, he is ready to head up the pitching staff with no limitations.

The staff also had three other junior returnees from 2021 in right-handers Nick Coniglio and Jack Renaud and left-hander Marcello Mastroianni. The Panthers also have a pair of capable depth options in Diego Tavarez and Grayson Testino for the midweek division games, but you can be sure Ranney will be lining up its big four pitchers to face the toughest opponents on the schedule, which include Delbarton, Hudson Catholic, Brick Memorial, Middletown South and Marlboro, as well as the tournament slate when it rolls around.

Beyond the mound, Ranney has a lineup loaded with players who put up big numbers while feasting on Class B Central, but were not as consistent against the rest of the Shore. There was definitely some good: they put up 14 runs on Brick Memorial, seven on Donovan Catholic in a game started by ace Shaun O’Keefe, 11 on Jackson Liberty and ace Dan Keenan and eight in a loss to Gloucester Catholic in the NJSIAA Tournament. Ranney also got shut down by Toms River North, Manalapan and Rumson-Fair Haven – the latter of which were in the Shore Conference and Monmouth County Tournaments.

Brett Wehringer is the lynchpin of Ranney’s position-player group, playing an outstanding shortstop while also providing a spark at the top of the order. While Gracia’s offensive numbers were eye-popping, they were not as good as the ones that senior Charlie Chropuvka put up in a full, All-Shore season. Catcher Lou Spadafora, first baseman Glen Cantalupo and second baseman Diego Tavarez are also coming off big statistical seasons, while corner outfielder Ricky Nagy and third baseman Jack Tallent both showed their hitting prowess as well.

The pieces are all in place and finally healthy for Ranney to turn the whole team loose on the Shore Conference and see where things end up. Stepping up to the level of programs like Red Bank Catholic, Middletown South, Christian Brothers Academy, Jackson Memorial, Rumson-Fair Haven and Manalapan comes with some hard knocks, but with the talent starting to come together, the ceiling on Ranney is starting to disappear.

Point Pleasant Beach

With Ranney looking like a powerhouse for the next two years, Point Beach may have missed its best chance to win the outright Class B Central division title in 2019 and especially in 2020, when the Garnet Gulls would have returned an experienced team if not for the cancelation of the season. With that being said, Point Beach returns a lot of experienced players who have been through the battles – both with Ranney and against other quality teams from around the Shore Conference. The returning group knows what it will take to knock off the Panthers, and while the end goal for a Group I school like Point Beach is an NJSIAA sectional championship at the end of the year, the first order of business is to give Ranney its best shot when the two meet for the first of two showdowns on Wednesday.

A senior core of Phil Trebour, Colin Matuschat, Andrew Banick, Connor DeLorenzo, Hunter Roselli and Owen West are set to lead the Garnet Gulls this season. Trebour and Banick are both two-way players, with Banick coming off a huge offensive season as a junior while also serving as Point Beach’s most dependable starter. Trebour has been the team’s closer, which allows him more innings at his primary shortstop position.

Matuschat will move across the diamond from third base to first with the graduation of Alec Glenn and the ascendance of younger brother, Bryan Matuschat, who will play third base. Senior Braden Ryan played a utility role off the bench last season and is set to take over the starting second base job, giving the Garnet Gulls yet another senior in the starting lineup. DeLorenzo, Banick and Roselli lead the outfield group, with Lorenzo playing centerfield and junior James Larsen ready to fill-in when Banick pitches.

Banick, West, Larsen and junior Jackson Killian are all coming off strong seasons as starters on the mound, with Banick and West pitching in games outside of the Class B Central schedule and Larsen and Killian doing most of their work in the division. Junior Nate Van Norman and sophomore Bryan Matuschat are both in line for innings as well and the staff will be throwing to first-year starting catcher Nate Clayton, who got a good dose of experience as a freshman in 2021.

Regardless of what happens against Ranney in the division race, Point Beach’s season is a success with a few notable accomplishments: win the Class A Central public division title, knock off at last one larger school from outside the division (preferably in the Ocean County or Shore Conference Tournament) and make a serious run at a long-awaited Central Group I championship. With that senior core gearing up for one last run together, there is sure to be some urgency within this Garnet Gulls team and that could be what pushes them over the top.

Keyport

The slightly-shortened 2021 season limited Keyport to just 14 games, so the Red Raiders did not get the most complete picture of what they could do. What they did see in that collection of games, though, was a duo on the mound that can give Keyport a chance to compete with a lot of teams in the conference, including with Point Beach for the B Central public division championship.

Senior right-handers Anthony Longo and Jack DiPaolo are two of the division’s better pitchers and any success Keyport has this season will be on their backs. Both seniors pound the strikeout and are able to overpower most Class B Central lineups while doing a good job managing contact against the lineups of larger schools. The downside to Longo or DiPaolo being on the mound is it takes them away from their positions in the field, which is especially difficult when Longo is not at shortstop.

For Keyport to take advantage of their two-man attack on the mound, the Red Raiders will have to catch the ball behind both of them and there is a fairly experienced group behind them to get the job done. Mason Hospital and Carter Williams are back on the right side of the infield, while D.J. Thomson takes over at third after mostly playing in the outfield a year ago. Williams and Thomson are the candidates to play shortstop when Longo is on the mound, with sophomore Nick Dowd and freshman Derek Ferm in the mix to take the extra spot on the infield.

DiPaolo and Josh Dswonyk return to the corner outfield spots and senior Tim Connallon will play out there when DiPaolo pitches. The two new starters for Keyport this season are at catcher and in centerfield, with freshman Liam Killian taking over behind the plate and senior George Mitchell joining the team to roam centerfield. Thomson, Mitchell and Longo led Keyport’s basketball team to its best season in nearly two decades during the winter and Mitchell and Thomson also formed a dynamic quarterback-receiver duo on the football field.

There should be some pretty good chemistry on this experienced Keyport team and with some progress at the plate and solid defense behind Longo and DiPaolo, the Red Raiders are capable of giving Point Beach a battle for the public division title and setting themselves up for a run in the Central Group I playoffs.

Henry Hudson

The Admirals had the youngest team in the Shore Conference last season and while it wasn’t a good season by the overall results, there were some encouraging developments that should lead to some optimism going forward. The Admirals won two divisional games – both over Mater Dei Prep – and played two competitive games against Keyport, which suggests that Henry Hudson is getting closer to climbing up the B Central ranks.

Only two contributors from last year’s team graduated, so Henry Hudson should be ready for a step forward with its sophomore-heavy group. Aiden Winters emerged as a dependable all-around player who can catch, play on the infield and provide innings on the mound, depending on whatever the need is for first-year coach Mike Herrmann. Fellow sophomore Brandon Hendrickson has similar versatility, while Hayden Kurdes will play multiple positions and pitch as well.

Chris Parmigiani and Dylan Gonzalez are the other returning sophomores, with Parmigiani proving the Admirals with a left-hander for the starting rotation and Gonzalez contributing in the outfield and on the mound. Colton O’Connor is a sophomore with an increased role as a new starter at third base and freshmen Teddy Fariello and Phin Kozic are set to join the starting nine as well in their first seasons.

Henry Hudson’s formula has been to start its players young and ride them until they become a senior group and that process is still in its early stages. It will probably take at least another year of lumps, but the Admirals have a young core that will have a chance to grow together and, eventually, win together.

Mater Dei Prep

Just three years removed from winning the outright Class B Central championship, Mater Dei is coming off what might have been the worst season in program history, in which the Seraphs relied heavily on players whose primary focus was on other sports but were open to giving baseball a try with the team looking to fill open spots.

This year will have a similar dynamic for the Seraphs, and with an extra year of experience, second-year head coach Mike Eckert is hoping the results start to come around. Mater Dei has a pair of solid all-around players in Sean Hanna and Gavin Sansone, with both players slotting in at an up-the-middle defensive position – Hanna at shortstop and Sansone in centerfield – and occupying the top two spots in the starting rotation. Mater Dei also brings back starting experience at second base with Gerard Novello and at the corner outfield spots with seniors David Corbisiero and Kole Devaney. Anthony Tancredi is a new starter at first base and in the rotation, but he is a 6-foot-6 senior basketball player who will offer some athleticism and strength to the roster.

Behind the plate, Eckert will offer his catching expertise to senior Cal Lugay and sophomore Jayden Rodriguez, either of whom will be a first-year starter. The other two new starters will be at third base and designated hitter, with juniors Ben Morgan and Brian Burnett angling for third-base at-bats and William Weberlist setting himself up as the extra hitter. Burnett and Morgan are also set to help out on the mound.

It was only three years ago that Mater Dei was a contender for the top spot, so it getting back into the top three of the division seems within reach, even if there is a lot of ground to cover between last season and the start of this one.

Keansburg

The Titans had a lot to replace coming off last season’s five-win campaign, not the least of which was the head coach. Uriel Morfin replaces Ryan Lillis as the Keansburg skipper and he will have some key contributors from last year to replace, including all-division two-way standout Waylon Manoes. With openings at third base, shortstop, catcher and at the top of the rotation, there are some questions about how Keansburg will be able to replace what was lost.

Morfin will be looking to experienced varsity players to take over at those key spots, with junior Ryan Comey moving from the outfield to catcher, Matt Keelen moving from first base to third, junior Aiden Flynn shifting from the outfield to second base, and junior Donny Antonucci taking over shortstop full time after getting a dose of time in the field last year.

One spot that will carry over from last year is in centerfield, where senior Andrew Valle is back to patrol the grass. Junior Antonio Alejandro is a new starter in left but has varsity experience, while first baseman Kyle Scott, sophomore Phil Sears, junior Victor Ventura and freshman James Valle all look to make an impact in their first varsity seasons.

The pitching staff is almost entirely new as well, with Keelen, Valle and Alejandro returning with at least some experience on a varsity mound. Antonucci and Sears will also be key cogs on the rubber for Keansburg, which will have to sort through the new faces in new places on the way toward competing for a spot in the top four of the division.

Asbury Park

It has been almost three full years since Asbury Park played a baseball game, with the school opting not to field a team last year on the heels of the canceled 2020 season. The Blue Bishops will look to build it back up under first-year coach Keith Killea, who will officially be the first person to coach an Asbury Park baseball game since longtime coach Johnny Grasso stepped down following the 2019 campaign.

While Asbury Park will inherently be the Shore’s most inexperienced team, the Blue Bishops are not without experience. Senior Exiever Chathuant was a starter as a freshman and will give his team a steady presence behind the plate and near the top of the batting order. He is one of only four seniors on the roster, with DeShay Rolfe playing third base, Javyion Daniels heading the starting rotation and Sakai Yi also part of the pitching staff.

Sha’Born Goodman has proven himself to be a talented athlete on the basketball court and the junior will apply his talents to shortstop and on the pitching staff. He will team with freshman second baseman Shakim Patterson, sophomore first baseman Ahkim Esdaile and Rolfe in the infield, while juniors Dacarri Diaz and Yahmiere Bowles lead an outfield that also includes freshman Nestor Castillo.

Asbury Park’s approach under Grasso was to split games on the mound between as many as seven pitchers and without a lot of experienced arms, Killea is likely to go back to that strategy. It will take some maneuvering and quick learning for the Blue Bishops to compete with more seasoned teams this season, but it’s just good to see baseball back at Asbury Park.
