Newark Academy gearing for state tournament, after winning SEC Liberty crown, will host Morristown Beard in semifinals on June 3

Newark Academy, the top seed in the North Non-Public B state tournament, will take on Morristown Beard in a semifinal game on Friday, June 3.

It’s been a good season for coach Serg Rodriguez’s team, which was 18-8 after a loss to Caldwell on June 1. Despite that, Newark Academy had already clinched the Super Essex Conference’s Liberty Division title and finished 11-1 in the conference.

Sam Burggraf, a third baseman, hit a solo homer for Newark Academy.

It’s always good to see the parents at the game, and in this case, some senior dads took a moment for a photo with their daughters.
