'Sheer determination' leads Delbarton past Pequannock in Morris County Tournament final

RANDOLPH — Skyler Venezia never had a doubt. Even after he missed the free throw, Venezia was certain one of his Delbarton teammates would be there.

Julian Radossich came up with the rebound and put it back, sealing the Green Wave's 62-57 defeat of Pequannock in the Morris County Tournament final on Saturday night.

The unexpected three-point play came with 22.3 seconds left, and gave Delbarton a four-point lead. But to Venezia, it wasn't anything different than what Radossich had done all season.

"It was perfect," said Venezia, a Green Wave senior. "I wanted to make it, but I know my teammates got my back. ... He's down in the paint all the time, getting the rebounds, getting the fouls. He's really a great player."

Radossich cited Delbarton assistant football coach Matt Leotti as an inspiration. Though the Green Wave had played in the last MCT final two years ago, they hadn't won since 2006 — when Leotti was on the court. Before the team left for County College of Morris, he reminded them of Delbarton history, and how happy he was to watch them play for the title.

This was Delbarton's 15th trip to the MCT final, and the seventh win. However, none of the current players were on the court for the loss to West Morris in 2020.

Pequannock hadn't been to the championship game since 1990, a 61-48 loss to the Green Wave. The Golden Panthers' only victory came in 1988, when head coach Jeff DeBell was a role player at center.

"They played hard, but we just came up a little short," said DeBell, who earned his 300th career victory on Monday. "We had some matchup issues. They were quick, so we settled into the (2-3) zone. They hit some shots, and instead of taking a breath and settling down, we took bad shots. It was a hard-fought game back and forth. Some little things didn't go our way."

Venezia led all scorers in the final with 18 points, one of three Delbarton players in double figures with Radossich (11) and sophomore forward Mike Van Raphorst (10).

Radossich, a 6-foot-3 forward, was unafraid inside against Pequannock's 6-10 center Ben Reichert.

Venezia was named the Darrell Halloran Most Valuable Player. Delbarton junior forward Mike Vaccaro was also selected for the All-Tournament team by the county's coaches, along with Pequannock seniors David Rigoglioso and Ethan Sutherland and junior Finn Powers, and West Morris senior guard Sean Leonard.

Powers led the Golden Panthers with 15 points. Sophomore Karson Culuko added 13, Sutherland 11 and Rigoglioso 10.

"It feels amazing," Delbarton point guard Derek Lagios said. "We had our sights on this since last year, but they didn't have the tournament. ... This was our goal. We wanted it last year, and now we got it."

NEWARK, NJ — New Jersey’s largest city has come a long way when it comes to cleaning up its drinking water. And it isn’t done yet, Newark officials say.

On Monday, Newark launched $23 million in new upgrades at the Pequannock Water Treatment Plant. The city-managed plant is located at 2224 Paterson-Hamburg Turnpike in West Milford. It treats water that is piped to Newark residents and businesses, as well as several nearby towns that purchase water from the city.

When completed, the new system will improve overall water quality and increase the plant’s processing capacity from 35 to 60 million gallons per day, Newark officials said.

The upgrades are being financed by New Jersey Infrastructure Bank Program low-interest loan financing, designed by Kleinfelder Inc. and constructed by Spectraserv.

“We have five outdoor reservoirs that store 14 billion gallons of water,” said Kareem Adeem, director of the Department of Water and Sewer Utilities. “These new systems will help us draw and purify that water with greater speed and efficiency.”

NEWARK'S FIGHT AGAINST LEAD WATER

Three years ago, Newark made national headlines when it confronted a lead water crisis. At one point, the lead levels at some points in the city's drinking water had risen to 47 parts per billion at some sites, more than three times the federal threshold. It prompted an outcry from residents – and a lawsuit from advocates.

Newark eventually identified two sources of the contamination. One was the way the city treated its water, which allowed excess corrosion to take place in aging pipes. The city responded by rolling out a new method of treating its water, which is also sold to several nearby towns and cities in Essex County, including Belleville, Bloomfield, East Orange and Nutley.

The second issue wasn't as quick of a fix, however.

Newark officials traced some of the contamination to lead-lined service pipes leading to thousands of local homes. The pipes – which connect local homes and businesses to the local water supply – can potentially leach contamination as water passes through them. A portion of the pipes may be privately owned, complicating efforts to replace them.

With the aid of state and county financial assistance, Newark has since replaced almost 23,000 lead service pipes within three years – significantly ahead of the 10 years it was expected to take.

Normally the work can cost thousands of dollars, but Newark offered it at no cost for residents through a municipal replacement program. There were no tax increases or water rate hikes as a result, city officials say.

In July 2021, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka announced that the average lead levels in Newark water fell "well below the federal benchmark for acceptable levels" for the third straight reporting period – a huge turning point in its battle against lead contamination.

Newark’s recent milestones have been getting national attention from federal officials and boards.

In February, Newark caught the eye of Vice President Kamala Harris, who came to the Garden State to praise the city for its battle against lead water contamination. Read More: Lead Pipes And Newark: Kamala Harris Returns To NJ To Praise City

Earlier this month, Mayor Baraka testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Fisheries, Water, and Wildlife in Washington D.C. about Newark’s progress, holding the city up as a “national model.”

“Newark’s Lead Service Line project is unprecedented in terms of scope and speed and has protected the health and wellness of the residents of Newark as well as portions of neighboring cities that we service,” Baraka said.

“This project helped protect the health and wellness of our residents and provided 500 good-paying local jobs,” he continued. “Workers on the project worked tirelessly to get this accomplished (even through the pandemic) to help safely complete the project. We identified affirmative action goals to establish fair access to employment opportunities and created a program designed to reflect the demographics of the city.”

Baraka also discussed best practices learned from the project, its funding, addressing lead in schools, and supporting the needs of low-income water customers. To view the mayor’s entire testimony, including the questions he answered, click here.

Work Under Way on NYS&W Railway Bicycle and Pedestrian Path

Brush Cleared, Rails to be Lifted on Morris to Passaic Trail

Construction has begun on the long-awaited New York Susquehanna & Western (NYS&W) Railway Bicycle and Pedestrian Shared Use Path, a 4.8 mile trail project spearheaded by Morris County to repurpose an abandoned stretch of railroad for a non-motorized recreational path from Pequannock Township to Wayne.

Brush clearing and preliminary work on lifting old rails began last week on the $20 million, federally-funded project which was initiated by the Morris County Board of County Commissioners to transform an old railroad bed into a recreational trail linking Morris and Passaic counties. The path of the project begins at River Drive in Pequannock near Route 23, connecting with the township’s Aquatic Park, and runs southward to Mountainview Boulevard near NJ Transit’s Mountain View rail station in Wayne.

Work is anticipated to be completed in 2024, and the project will eventually tie into Passaic County’s Morris Canal Greenway. As milestones are reached during the project, periodic updates will be announced.

“This project has been eagerly anticipated by many people in the region, particularly in both Morris and Passaic counties, and we’re pleased that work is underway. This will provide another unique recreational opportunity for our residents, one that connects different greenways while providing bicyclists and hikers easy access to downtown amenities that are a short distance from this path,” said Director Tayfun Selen of the Morris County Board of County Commissioners.

Planning Documents & Video First Shared in 2020 May Still Be Viewed

The path has long been envisioned as a walking and biking route that will connect residents, commuters and visitors with parks, schools, libraries, businesses and transit facilities. The Morris County Office of Engineering and Transportation is overseeing the project and the Morris County Park Commission eventually will manage the 10-foot wide trail, which is similar in concept to the popular Traction Line in Morris County. That path runs from Morristown to Madison, and his heavily used by walkers, joggers and bicyclists.

The NYS&W Railway Bicycle and Pedestrian Path will be asphalt covered, and will be the first of its kind near the Route 23 corridor of Morris and Passaic counties.

The idea for the bike path was conceived more than two decades ago by Pete Standish, a Pequannock resident and avid cyclist.

Trains have not run for more than a decade on the tracks being lifted up in the coming days. The stretch had once been a commuter line and was later used as NYS&W’s Pompton Industrial Spur, serving freight customers along the path.

Parts of the southern section of the path, which will stretch south of Ryerson Road to Mountain View in Wayne, will be elevated through wetlands. The path will be separated from automobile traffic, although, there will be path crossings on streets along the corridor.
