Jersey Sports Zone is about capturing great video highlights. As we get ready to turn the page towards the 2019-20 school year, we take one more look back at the top games captured by our cameras.

Here are our most viewed games of the 2019 season. 10. Cedar Grove 7 Buena 1 Cedar Grove remained amongst the top powers in the state throughout 2019.

Lodi Immaculate 4 St. Joseph (Hammonton) 0 Immaculate Conception is no stranger to State Titles, the Blue Wolves captured their seventh straight Non-Public B Crown with a 4-0 shutout against St. Joseph (Hammonton). A huge 3-run home run from sophomore Christina Braid would open the lead late in this intense showdown. 8. Robbinsville 9 Steinert 5 Hard to top a better ending to a rivalry game than a grand slam to take the lead in the top of the seventh. Robbinsville’s Devon Witt can cross it off her bucket list as she propelled the Ravens to a 9-5 win over Steinert with one swing of the bat. 7. Steinert 10 Hamilton West 0 Reigning Tournament of Champion Winners Steinert began the season with an impressive 10-0 shutout over Colonial Valley Conference rival Hamilton West.

The Lions raised their very first Group 3 State Championship with a 5-0 win over Chatham. 4. Hightstown 9 Mount Olive 4 Emotions ran high in this battle of rookie State Title contenders. Highstown won its first ever group 4 state final following an impressive performance from pitcher Allie Bridgman that included 3 RBI’s and 10 strikeouts. 3. Westfield 8 Middletown North 6 It took 11 innings, but Westfield was able to best eventual State Champions Middletown North 8-6.

The Green Wave got the ball first in OT and La’Qym Morris scored from six yards out, but Mickens was able to block the extra point.
