So many pivotal athletic matchups seem to occur between Haddonfield and West Deptford—Haddonfield was on the losing end of this one.
With one thunderous pound of the mat, the official ruling over Friday night’s Colonial Conference Liberty Division showdown between West Deptford and Haddonfield sent the Eagles wrestlers and fans into a frenzy. With that sound came West Deptford’s first win over Haddonfield in over a decade and first Liberty Division title since 1978. Yes, it was a great night to be an Eagle. “There’s nobody who believed that this team would go 15-0 and win the division after losing what we lost last year,” said head coach John Craig. “It’s really special what this group has been able to do. I’m so proud of these guys, and I just can’t say enough about them.” The match hung in the balance until the final bout, when junior standout Rory Bonner took the mat…

Pete DiPol has decided to move on after leading the Bulldawgs wrestling program to the most successful season in school history.
It certainly wasn’t an easy decision, but in the end it was one Pete DiPol felt he had no choice but to make. On Wednesday, DiPol presented Haddonfield High School athletic director Lefty Banos with his letter of resignation as head coach of the wrestling team. DiPol will now assume control of the wrestling program at Gloucester County College, which won its last national title in 2007, where he hopes to be able to recruit some of the top talent South Jersey has to offer. “It’s definitely a difficult decision to make but I feel that I’m ready to take the next step and coach at the next level,” DiPol said. “I’m definitely going to miss Haddonfield. I had a great coaching staff to work with and some really outstanding kids as well. I would …
