Cinnaminson Boys Soccer fighting to keep competitive nature going in 2017

It was not that long ago the Cinnaminson High School boys soccer team was competing for South Jersey Group titles in 2012 and 2015 and even a state final in 2014, after winning the group title. Following a 6–12–1 season in 2016, the goal is to get back to that level of play and be competitive in a very tough BCSL Liberty Division. Head Coach Jason Melie is in his sixth year as the leader of the varsity program, and his 14th overall at Cinnaminson. After a tough season a year ago, Melie hopes the team can continue to improve in all aspects. “We know that in this division, things are not going to be given to us,” Melie said. “Our schedule prepares us for what to expect each and every game, and we have high expectations for the season.” The Pirates are 3–2 so far this season through Sept. 18, with a 2–1 record in their division. Opening with a 2–1 loss in Ocean City, the Pirates rolled off three wins in a row before falling 1–0 to Northern Burlington.

Committeeman Don Brauckmann serving Cinnaminson in a wide-range of capacities

Donald Brauckmann has called Cinnaminson Township his home since 1993 and has served the community in a variety of capacities. The 47-year-old Willingboro native moved in with his wife, Michelle, who is a life-long Cinnaminson resident, after serving in the U.S. Marine Corps for four years in North Carolina. Brauckmann graduated Holy Cross High School in 1988 before taking various credits at Burlington County College and the Burlington County Police Academy. “I worked with the Cinnaminson Police Department for 10 years from 1994 to 2004,” Brauckmann said. “I was also our first school resource officer. I worked in that position from 1999 to 2004. Being our SRO was the most rewarding position I held while with the department, where I still maintain very strong relationships with many of the students, parents and school employees that I was involved with over 15 years ago.”
