All hail the champions!

NJSIAA held a Tournament of Champions kick-off luncheon at the Hamilton Manor Monday afternoon, which made for a nice, short drive for the newly crowned Group III champion Nottingham Northstars. Also in attendance were group champions Roselle Catholic, Don Bosco, Shawnee, Woodbury and Haddonfield boys, and the six girls championship teams.
