Mendham garners championship

MENDHAM _ Mendham girls lacrosse was trying to keep up its usual high standards. Morristown girls lacrosse wanted to start building its own legacy.

The Mendham Minutemen put in a dominating performance with a 15-1 triumph over Morristown to secure the title on Wednesday, May 28 and earned the right to play in the Group III title game on Saturday.

Ferrara paces Colonials

MORRISTOWN _ Wearing a Band-Aid on the bridge of her nose was not the fashion statement that Morristown's Allie Ferrara wanted to make. However, her efforts in a Morris County Tournament game on Saturday, May 3 gave the Colonials another good reason to dance at their senior prom.

Unexpected goals elevate Randolph

Changes benefiting Falcons

JEFFERSON _ A first-year varsity coach taking over a veteran squad might have some reservations about making changes but Jefferson coach Melissa Hall did not and she's been pleased with how her seniors have embraced different systems and new attitudes.

Mollahan notches 100th goal

BOONTON _ Meghan Mollahan caused the Jefferson players' jaws to drop, scoring two goals in quicker-than-quick fashion. Mollahan, a senior attack wing/midfielder, found the back of the net twice for Boonton within the first 58 seconds against the undefeated Falcons on Thursday, April 24.
