CHATHAM, NJ - Right about this time last year the 2019 Chatham softball team was concluding a postseason run that ended in the NJSIAA Group 3 state championship game.

Hailey Coates, who started in the outfield for Chatham in that state final against Middletown North, is one of three seniors leaving coach Brian Figueiredo's program in 2020.

Joining Coates as outgoing seniors are Elizabeth Poillucci and Lily Bauer.
