• Class of 1987


    JOE SIVEL – Class of 1935

                Joe Sivel is a 1935 graduate of Glassboro and one of the few four sport participants in our history.  Joe made his mark in football, basketball, baseball and track.  Joe used his running ability to help lead the football team to an 8-1 record in 1932.  The highlight of that team was a 20-0 victory over Paulsboro.  In basketball Joe’s teams became the first team to win the Class Championship four years in a row.  Joe ran the sprint events for the track team and played shortstop for the baseball team in his spare time.


                Since graduating from Glassboro High Joe has remained very active in the area.

    He is probably best known for his job as the Tax Assessor for the Boro of Glassboro from 1950 until his retirement in 1982.


    DOUG MECOUCH – Class of 1944

                 Dough Mecouch is a 1944 graduate of Glassboro High.  Doug made his mark in South Jersey as a fine basketball player.  As a rebounder-scorer, Doug led the Bulldogs to three fine seasons.  After High School Doug attended Rutgers of Camden, played basketball and was named to the New Jersey All Star team.


                Doug has also remained active in the Glassboro area and became one of the best fast pitch softball players in South Jersey during the 1950’s.  Doug went on to be a supervisor for South Jersey Gas Company until his retirement this year (1987).


    JAMES THORNTON  - Class of 1958

                 Jim Thornton, a 1958 graduate, much like Joe Sivel, used his speed and running ability to impress all of South Jersey on the football field.  Jim was the halfback on the Gloucester County Champion 1957 squad that defeated all County rivals including a 21-0 victory over Paulsboro on Thanksgiving Day.  During the spring season, Jim turned his talents to helping the track team.  Jim equaled the long standing sprint records for the 100 and 220 yard dashes.


                Jim also remained active in the Glassboro area after graduation, employed by Owens-Illinois and served as a member of the Glassboro Housing Authority and Planning Commission.  Even with all of this, Jim may be best known as the Father of boxing professional Tony Thornton, a recent graduate of Glassboro High School.


    SAUNDRA LEE WILLIAMS – Class of 1969

                 Saundra Lee Williams was a 1969 graduate of Glassboro and an outstanding two sport performer for the Bulldogs.  Saundra began her senior year by helping the field hockey team capture the Olympic conference title going undefeated in league play.  After the field hockey season Saundra turned her attention to basketball and an assault on the scoring records of girls’ basketball.  In her junior year she helped lead the team to an unblemished 14-0 record and Conference Champions.  Saundra had scored 296 points during that season for an average of 21 points per game.  In her senior year Saundra needed to score and average of 22 points per game to reach the 1,000 point mark and become the first female to score 1,000 points since Hank Boyd accomplished the feat fifteen years earlier.  Saundra averaged nearly 27 points per game that senior year, scored a total of 1,070 and led her team to another Conference Championship and a 14-1 record.  Ironically her modern record of 1,070 was just recently topped by her niece Kim Smith-Bey last season.


                Saundra, a National Honor Society member, continued her education at Rutgers University where she graduated in 1974 with a B.A. in biology.  She is currently employed by the International Job Corps in Edison, NJ.


     ANNA MAE STEWART – Class of 1978

                 Anna Stewart is a 1978 graduate of Glassboro High and a truly outstanding two sport player.  Anna played varsity basketball for two years where she was the leading scorer and rebounder for her team.  But it was in track that Anna earned the most recognition.  Anna was one of the best female track performers to perform for Glassboro.  Anna still holds numerous records in the sprint events for the Bulldogs.  Her records for the 100, 220 and 440 yards races are still on the books.  But it was her long jumping ability that set her further apart from the rest of the competition.  Anna set a South Jersey record with a leap of 18’10” on her way to becoming the State Champion for that event.  Anna earned High School All-American honors for her track feats.


                Anna attended the University of Houston before graduating from Easter Kentucky.  Anna is employed as a marketing representative for health Insurance Plan of N.J.


    NICK MITCHO – Class of 1981

                 Nick Mitcho is the most recent of our graduates to be honored by the Hall of Fame committee.  He is a 1981 graduate of Glassboro.  Nick was a three sport performer, earning two varsity letters in soccer, four in wrestling and two in baseball.


                In soccer Nick was a half back, scored four goals his senior year and earned second team Olympic Conference honors.  He helped lead his team to a fine 12-3 record,

    A conference title and a near miss of the South Jersey Group I title when they lost 2-1 to State Champ Riverside.  In baseball Nick was a hard hitting outfielder on the second place Bulldog team.


                But it was in wrestling that Nick made his mark.  He earned a School record for most wins in a career, 85, most wins in a season with 30, was a district champion, a region champion and a third place finisher in the State Tournament.


                Nick graduated from West Chester University where he wrestled for four years and captained the team in his senior year.  He is presently teaching and coaching at Paulsboro High  School
