And after all, he should look the part because he is one and he showed it in the North Non-Public A section final [...]

No surprise there as the sophomore goalie was outstanding once again in the Spartans’ game versus Ramapo for all the marbles in North 1, Group 2 with 12 saves.

A Couple Of Suggestions For H/W/S

The member schools of the Hunterdon/Warren/Sussex Athletic Association have always been willing to accept change, which is a good thing. The association has made several major overhauls since forming in the Fall of 2009, including going to power points to seed teams and giving the top four teams a double-bye. Whether you like the changes [...]

Since opening its doors in the Fall of 1959, Sparta High School has produced some of the best athletes and teams this county has ever seen.

Ex-Pope John Star Brown Ready For Draft

The last time Noah Brown played a football game at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford it wasn’t a pleasant experience for the All-Stater and the rest of his Pope John teammates.
