The Boys Baseball team improved to 2-1 with a 5-2, nine inning win over Morristown Beard.

Bailey also contributed to the offense, scoring two runs along with an RBI. Brendan Sardo doubled in the ninth inning, keying a three run uprising and Joey Jandoli recorded the win with three scoreless relief frames.

Hanover Park's Ladies Softball had an interesting week. Junior pitcher Jessica Miller followed up her no-hitter vs Dover with three perfect innings against Morristown Beard, until an infield single in the fourth broke up her chance for back to back games giving up no hits. Jessica also contributed to the offense with two doubles on her three hits.

Hanover Parks hitting barrage (18 hits) was led by Freshman Nicole Miller, 3-4, with a two-run Home Run and four RBIs. Another junior, Amy Petrovich, went 3-3, five RBIs and four runs scored, along with a three-run Home Run. Senior, Amanda Bermel, scored three runs and drove in three more.

On Saturday, April 8 the team took part in the Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament held in Chatham. Hanover Park went 1-1 in two exciting games vs Gov. Livingston and host Chatham.   Hanover Park defeated Gov. Livingston 3-2 on a Home Run by Dara DiMalolo in the top of the sixth. Lead-off hitter Aryana Galioto was 2-3 including an inside the park Home Run, but the play of the game was made by freshman, Brielle Junda, who's perfect throw from left field cut down the tying run to end the game. Jessica Miller earned her third win of the season.  

Game two against Chatham was a pitcher’s duel and was scoreless after four innings. Chatham broke through with a run in the fifth, but Hanover Park respond quickly as Amanda Bermel walked, stole second and was bunted over to third. Clean-up hitter, Nicole Miller, pushed her in with a Sac. Fly to tie the game at 1-1.  Chatham ended the contest 2-1 on a walk-off Home Run by Morgan Pellegrin Hanover Park's season record stands at 3-1.
