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.
