CHATHAM, NJ - After building a big lead in the first half, it would be excusable for the Chatham girls basketball team to look past its opponent and forward to the first round of the Morris County Tournament when the No. 3 seeded Lady Cougars play host to No. 14 Roxbury on Saturday.

But more impressive than its ninth win in its last 10 games was the way coach Joe Gaba's Chatham team handled the 48-24 win over winless Mount Olive on Thursday night. 

"As I just told them, above the win, above everything else, their coach (Mona Ressaissi) at the end of the game was very complimentary of us and our program," Gaba said. "She said, I just want to thank you for the way you treated our kids. You're the first team that actually made us feel like basketball players.

"You guys played the game right way. You were helping us up, your kids were respectful to us on the floor and I just want to thank you for that. They haven't won a game this year. To hear that from another coach is more meaningful than her saying you guys are great."

Chatham (11-6) got 12 points from senior guard Chloe Blanc in the first half when the Lady Cougars moved to a 32-7 lead.

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 ...
