WAYNE, NJ - Chatham sophomore Darren Yen, USA rated 'C' fencer, provided the highlight of the meet with an opening win in sabre against Wayne Hills senior Dawson Sieradzky, a USA  'A' rated fencer and two-time NJSIAA state sabre champion.

Despite the impressive start, No. 4 seed Wayne Hills went on to edge No. 12 Chatham, 14-13, in the NJSIAA state fencing quarterfinals on Tuesday night.

"Darren invested time in the days before the meet watching videos and studying Dawson's moves, as well as practicing," Chatham coach Jerry Duffey said. "It was one of the highlights of the night to watch these top caliber high school sabres compete together. Sieradzky got the first touch, then Yen, and they traded back and forth until it was tied up at 4-4. Yen stuck to his plan, test the speed with a simultaneous action, then parry riposte on the next start. It was a good plan properly executed giving Yen the point and the bout.

"The bout set the tone for the rest of the meet, which included six more 4-4 bouts."

Epee fencer Liam Rooney went undefeated for Chatham and Yen won two sabre bouts. Cougar junior Calivin Bitar posted two wins in epee. Senior foil co-captain Jack Dean won two foil matches for Chatham.

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...
