Chatham Board of Ed Honors Student Athletes, Musicians


CHATHAM, NJ - The Board of Education for the Chathams met on Monday night to honor students in both athletics and music.

Students on the boys’ hockey team, girls’ swim team and several vocal and instrumental music groups were honored at the Board of Education meeting to congratulate their accomplishments. 

The hockey team won its state championship this winter season, as well as the girls’ swim team, which won for the third year in a row.

The principal at Washington Avenue Elementary School, where the meeting took place, commented that she was excited to see the students at the high school level.  Principal Mary Quigley is celebrating her 10th year as principal and her first class of students will be graduating from the high school this year.  

In other business, the board heard a complaint by a resident who is disturbed by the use of the batting cages on Hass Field. 

Ronald Nicola lives on Rowan Road and says the constant use of the field is an annoyance to him and his wife, who live next to the field. 

Nicola feels that the amount of time the cages are used is only part of the problem, and the metal bats that are part of the sport causes a lingering noise.  This “pinging” noise he says, makes it difficult to enjoy his backyard.   

Nicola says that he has tried to communicate with several administrative officials in attempts to explain his possible solutions, which include restricting metal bats and moving the cages. However, he added that these attempts have been unsuccessful.
