SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit High School Girls and Boys Varsity Lacrosse Teams, a combined 27-1 this season, will each vie for Union County Tournament (UCT) Championships tonight -- in back-to-back games at AL Johnson High School.
The 13-1 Girls, the only blemish on their 2016 account coming via a narrow loss to Virginia powerhouse St. Stephen's & St. Agnes, will take on Oak Knoll at 5 p.m. in a rematch of last year's UCT Final, won by Summit 10-8.
Summit defeated Oak Knoll 14-10 on April 12, a game in which they trailed 9-3 before scoring 11 of the contest's final 12 goals. The Hilltoppers, who advanced to the final by walloping Kent Place 17-2,  are seeking their eighth consecutive UCT crown.
The 14-0 Boys will face Westfield at 7:30 p.m., in what promises to be -- in the immortal words of ABC's Keith Jackson -- a real slobberknocker. Summit defeated Westfield 8-5 on April 14, and looks to reverse the 2015 UCT Final, won by the Blue Devils 4-3 in triple overtime.
Summit Girls Varsity v. Oak Knoll - 5 p.m. at AL Johnson High School
Summit Boys Varsity v. Westfield - 7:30 p.m. at AL Johnson High School
AL Johnson High School is located at 365 Westfield Avenue.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
