Moorestown Makes It Nine Straight
7 June 2008; Piscataway, NJ (Written by Lou Rossi for NJSI/Photos by Alex Cena): Chatham’s Cougars showed up at Rutgers’ Yurcak field with a tremendous task set before them – to upset Moorestown’s Quakers and keep them from winning their ninth straight championship.
Not aiding to their cause was the weather, one of the hottest days yet this year, coming in at a blistering 91 degrees. Thankfully, by the time the ladies took the field just after 3:30pm, a shallow breeze had begun to gracefully blow across the field; finally providing the players and spectators relief from what otherwise was a brutal day in the sun.
