West Morris steps up in pressure situations

ROXBURY _ West Morris took great interest in the Roxbury-Lenape Valley game at last weekend's Randolph Challenge. No doubt, the Wolfpack's 12-run loss to the Patriots - their first setback of the season - was a bit shocking. That's why they wanted to see how Roxbury was faring.

Morris Knolls is back on track

DENVILLE _ Morris Knolls coach Keith Heinemann didn't want to want to wait until crisis level for his team to address its issues. The problems were minor and Heinemann wasn't panicking but he felt the Golden Eagles needed to pull together after a shutout loss to Livingston.
