The men’s team will host Essex County College at 1:30 pm, and the women’s team will host the County College of Morris at 11 am, Saturday, October 22.
The men's team will play Oct. 29 at Mercer County Community College against Harcum Junior College.  

“Our men have worked hard and have faced some great competition to earn the top seed in our region and prepare them for postseason play” Men’s Head Coach Craig Dewar said. “We look forward to the challenge of the playoffs.”

“I am very proud of how far the women's team has come this season, facing injuries and illness, they still held onto the goal of making it to the playoffs” said Women’s Head Coach Kathleen DeLitta. “They happen to be a very resilient team and have a lot of fight left in them, with the hopes to make their season go on for as long as possible.”

Along with each team making the playoffs, specific players were honored by the Garden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) and Region XIX.
