MORRISTOWN, NJ – In this day and age of four and five team divisions in the NJAC—a far cry from the glorious Iron Hills Conference-Iron Division day that involved 16 or 18 games in loop play—conference championships have lost a bit of muster.
Nonetheless, Morristown’s girls basketball team won the NJAC-United title for the second straight season, finishing with a perfect 6-0 league record.
The Colonials capped off conference play with a 53-34 victory over Mendham on home court Tuesday night.
It was the final tuneup for 21-2 Morristown, who will play for all the Morris County marbles on Friday night vs. Jefferson at County College of Morris in the MCT final.
The Colonials burst this one open in the second quarter, when they outscored the Minutemen by a 20-2 margin in the frame to take a 26-10 halftime lead.
Elizabeth Strambi and Kayla Bush scored twelve apiece for the winners, while reserve guards Nicole Ferrara and Ayannah Smith were next with six tallies on the evening
