DENVILLE, NJ-- The Morris Knolls volleyball team is off to a winning start, dropping only one game in their last three. As the girls start the season out 2-1, optimism is key. The Golden Eagles are looking to continue their success under head coach Jolyn Veres.

Last season, the girls dropped some important games, closing out the season 11-13. As the 2014 season was winding down, the girls came on strong, winning their last three games against Randolph, Parsippany Hills, and Vernon. 

The season started out on a high note for the Golden Eagles in their first 2015 matchup. They hosted Pope John High School on Sept. 10. Morris Knolls Junior Krista Mitarotonda kept the team alive by making 5 blocks. Senior Marlena Todd had two aces, and five kills. The girls were victorious during their first matchup, winning by a score of 2-0.

After their first loss against Roxbury, the girls played their first away game against Morristown High School on Sept. 17. The girls capitalized again with kills and aces. However, this matchup was a nail biter, as the score was close the entire time. Match 1 came down to 23-25 in favor of Morristown. Knolls came back tougher in the second game, winning 25-21. During the third matchup, Knolls came away the victor, with a score of 25-23.

The girls will play road games against Fair Lawn High School on Sept. 18, followed by Morris Hills on Sept. 21. The team comes home again for a matchup against West Morris Central on Sept. 22. at 4:00 p.m. in the Morris Knolls Gym.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
