This past week, the Monmouth University Womensʼ Basketball team hosted a group of 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls from Red Bank Charter School and Red Bank Middle School, for a special tour of the Monmouth campus.
The “Future Bucs” from Red Bank were the guests of the basketball team members, for a guided tour of the dining hall, library, dorm area, academic area and, of course, the athletic area. Lamiyah, Laniyah, Tania, Ariel, Winnie, Mandy, Makayla, Joann, Mitzi, Jennifer and Joselin all took advantage of this wonderful opportunity. The event was chaperoned by Future Buc founders Enrico Ciabattoni and David Prown.
The high school’s vaunted athletic director is leaving at the end of October to take a teaching job at Raritan High School in Hazlet, putting school leadership on the hunt for a replacement who can fill the big hole Dal Pra will leave.
“Del’s a big loss because he’s a great community guy,” principal Risa Clay said. “People are devastated.”

The Future Buccaneers program wrapped up its second summer with basketball and soccer tournaments last week.
The program brings together seventh and eighth-graders from the three Red Bank Regional High sending districts of Little Silver, Red Bank and Shrewsbury for a series of games intended to acquaint future RBR students with one another.
