The Albert Carino Basketball Club of South Jersey will induct eight new members into the South Jersey Basketball Hall of Fame on Feb. 10.

*** and ***

Donna Seybold: The 1986 Collingswood alumna was a three-sport star, but despite being a standout tennis and softball player, it’s her work on the hardwood that stands out as she led the Panthers to their lone state championship as a senior. She averaged 20 points a game that season and finished with more than 1,000 for her career. Seybold earned a scholarship to Manhattan College and she helped the program to the NCAA Tournament twice. She’s one of two Jaspers to play on two MAAC championship teams. She was named Most Valuable Player of the 1990 MAAC Tournament. She was also the Metropolitan Player of the Year that season. She became the fifth 1,000-point scorer in program history and was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2003. She’s also part of the MAAC Honor Roll. After her playing days she got into coaching. She led Loyola of Maryland and Indiana State during her 10-year career.

JNEWS: Frawley, Liam T. [MC1990] battles from the aneurysm



Former Tappan Zee AD Liam Frawley battles back from brain aneurysm

NEW CITY – He wears three rubber bracelets on his left wrist.

“Frawley Strong,” they read.

His left hand is his strong one. The one with which he gestures, eats, holds a pen to slowly print his name.

And frequently grasps the hand of his wife, Janine.

Hand in hand, they tackle each day.

Since he was hired as Tappan Zee’s athletic director in 2005, Liam Frawley, 49, had become a national figure in education circles. He lectured about lifting kids up and stopping bullying. He was finishing his doctorate. There was chatter he’d be Section 1’s next executive director. He was named the National Federation of State High School Associations’ Educator of the Year for 2015.

But Liam Frawley’s world changed on Jan. 25, 2016, when his wife found him collapsed in their home.

Rushed unconscious to Nyack Hospital, he was diagnosed with a massive ruptured brain aneurysm and was transferred to Westchester Medical Center.

Doctors said there wasn’t much hope.

“They thought he wouldn’t make it that day,” she said.

She told her unconscious husband, “I’m not giving up and I know you’re not giving up.”

That attitude has defined their last two and a half years together.

“It’s hard to go from such a busy life to this, but you’ve got to fight for it, right?” Janine asks Liam.
