HANOVER _ As a three-sport athlete at Morristown High School, Jen Donlin is accustomed to wearing a uniform and being sweaty.

MONTVILLE _ Sammie Booth and her father, Steve, have spent countless hours in the car together traveling to softball tournaments and clinics.
Some of the trips were long, taking the duo to Penn State or Maryland, but they never turned the radio on as a means of avoiding conversation. Sammie, unlike many teenagers, didn't put on headphones or become absorbed in any type of electronic device, either.
