Kittatinny 36 High Point 30
This Thursday night showdown in Sussex County had it all: a stingy rivalry, two talented teams and history on the line.
Kittatinny head coach John Gill became the fifth head coach in New Jersey history to reach 600 career wins, doing so on the heels of a thrilling, upset victory of his Cougars over High Point – the reigning Group 2 champions.
Kittatinny secured bonus points in six of their eights wins on the night with Patrick Franco, Connor Hanna and Jackson Crawn all winning by pin. Freshman Liliana Zacu-Ramos secured the match with a 4-1 win at 106 pounds.
JSZ’s Jay Cook has the highlights from a special and historic night in Newton:
