BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - This would have been senior outfielder Peter Woo's first season on the Gov. Livingston varsity baseball team. He helped lead the JV baseball team to the Union County Tournament championship game the last two seasons. "Peter was both an outstanding defensive player and base runner," said Gov. Livingston head baseball coach Chris Roof.

Woo's sophomore year was more than a championship level season. The intangible quality of this team's chemistry is something that stands out as a top highlight of his athletic career. "The team chemistry my sophomore year on JV was the best out of all the teams I have played on. Everyone had each other's backs and loved each other," he said.

Roof identified Woo as another student/athlete who never got a chance to wear the GL varsity baseball uniform because of the pandemic. "Peter has always been in my opinion, one of the kindest and most respected players I’ve come across in our program. It really bothers me that I’ll never get a chance to coach this young man. I wish nothing but the best for Peter in the near future," said Roof.
