EWING, NJ - Everything came full circle for Chatham swimmers Alicia Iizuka and Emily McGovern on Sunday as the two book-ended their careers the way they began it as freshmen.

In 2014, the two were freshmen when Chatham defeated Ocean City to win its fourth straight NJSIAA Public B state championship. The Lady Cougars clinched the championship when Iizuka, McGovern and Anna Dexheimer finished 1-2-3 in the 100 breaststroke.

On Sunday, it was deja vu all over again for Iizuka and McGovern as they teamed up with Karen Iizuka, Alicia's twin, to earn the clinching points as Chatham defeated Ocean City by an eerily similar score, 95-75, to win the NJSIAA Public B state championship at The College of New Jersey. It was the sixth state crown in seven years for Chatham.

As they did in 2014, Alicia Iizuka and McGovern finished 1-2 in the 100 breaststroke and Karen Iizuka was fourth, giving Chatham 89 points and the meet.

Emily McGovern, Alicia Iizuka and Karen Iizuka talk about their final 100 breaststroke race together, which happened to clinch the state championship

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 ...
