CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham girls volleyball team got its week off to a good start by easing past Passaic Arts and Science Charter in straight sets, 25-5, and 25-3, on Monday.

The Cougars now turn their attention to a tough Mendham squad, a team they lost to earlier in the season, on Tuesday in a rematch at Chatham High.

"We have to come out strong against a very good Mendham team we lost two in two sets," Chatham coach Anna Amster said. "We have Morris Hills in the county tournament Saturday at their house."
