Last September, Moorestown High School was informed its Unified basketball team was selected to represent New Jersey in the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games. The news was a cause of celebration, and the school revealed the news at one of the first football games of the season. After journeying to the West Coast and competing in Seattle from July 1 to July 6, the team returned home with gold medals. Principal and one of the team’s three coaches Andrew Seibel said the first football game of the season will once again be a cause for celebration in Moorestown where they’ll celebrate the Unified team’s victory.

Council to upgrade facilities for police, municipal court and softball fields

The Moorestown Township Police Department and the township’s municipal court will have a new home on North Church Street. At its latest meeting, council authorized approximately $4 million in bonds for the purchase of a property located at 1245 N. Church St., which will be the site of an expanded municipal facility. The property is adjacent to where the police department currently resides. When the ordinance authorizing the purchase was introduced in late June, Township Manager Thomas Merchel said the plan is to expand the police department’s current facilities, and this property will give it an additional 5,000 square feet.
