    Ms. Wendy Arnold, who retired last year, came back to organize a fundraiser to benefit one of our own. Here are the results: "Hello Mariner Family - I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who participated in the "Soup"er Fundraiser. We raised a record $1350 ! The support for fellow faculty members is truly a testament to the fact that TRN has the best staff in all Toms River Schools. A simple e-mail asking for volunteers for this fundraiser turned into an overwhelming response with offers to cook, purchase, clean, set-up and help with anything. I appreciate all that you did to make this endeavor so successful. A special thank you to Student Council for paying for the initial supplies ( bowls, plates, dinnerware, etc.) which certainly added up quickly. I also want to say thank you to the new staff for joining in without knowing how this fundraiser works. Of course, I want to thank my "regulars" who always come through no matter what the cause. I felt right at home today ( with a few retirees by my side), and can honestly say TRN will always hold a special place in my heart -xoxo" Wendy Arnold

    Tennis Ace
    When speaking to TRN junior Kenny Elliott, he presents as a pleasant and affable young man. However, once he hits the tennis courts, you can see his demeanor change to razor sharp intensity. This may help explain why Kenny is our number one tennis player and returning Ocean County tennis champion. Along with his prowess as a tennis ace, Kenny is also a very good student and that makes him this month's rising star at Toms River North. All the best to Kenny and the Mariner tennis team this upcoming season.

    Code Crackers
    Coding is the language programmers use to design apps, websites and software. Over the weekend, our Mariner team of seniors Kate Kennelly, Joe Signorelli, and Matt Signorelli placed 1st out of 44 teams in Stockton's Computer Programming Competition. There were approximately 125 student participating. The Mariners finished all 7 problems with 40 minutes left in the competition! Only 1 other team finished all 7 but we placed 1st since we finished 30 minutes before the other team. Stockton stated they did not expect any teams to finish all 7! "Tough but fun" Joe said, while Kate Kennelly added "My heart was racing!" The team credited their win with the strategy to split up and work individually on problems, asking for help from teammates as needed. Their computer programming teacher, Ms. Corrado was particularly excited, "This was a big win, no one expected that they would crack the code so quickly." From left, Lynne Kesselman, president of the Computer Science Teachers Association South Jersey (CSTA-SNJ), stands with high school coding competition team winners from Toms River High School North, teacher Camie Corrado, students Matthew Signorelli, Kate Kennelly and Joseph Signorelli, Stockton mascot Talon and Egg Harbor Township teacher Adam Swift, vice president of the CSTA-SNJ at the competition at Stockton University Friday.

    (Photo: Coach Wilbert and senior Patrick O'Donnell) Last night, the Toms River North Wrestling team defeated the Jackson Liberty Lions in the Pine Belt Arena. The mats were rolled up early because the meet was decided 30 minutes ahead of schedule because of the many falls (aka pins), a victory condition that is met by holding an opponents shoulders on the wrestling mat for a prescribed period of time. Ending the night in spectacular fashion was senior Patrick O'Donnell (182 lbs), walking away with his 95th career win with a fall. In addition to Patrick's prowess on the wrestling mat, he continues to excel in academics, maintaining an "A" average in all his classes. Student/Athlete indeed!
