speed. Freshman Jaymie Ferraro may compete in 100, 200, 400 and hurdle events. Kate Bereznak in the 200 and 400 and Quinn in the 200, 400 and relay, will add strength and Ann Espinoza has also shown that she is a strong runner.

"Stephanie (Quinn) has been with us for four years, so we look to her for senior leadership," said Klimas.

Considering his team's major area of strength, Klimas said, "It's pretty early, but I would like to think that we could score some points in the field events. But, I like the idea that we have quite a few sprinters this year. The sprinters can fill quite a few events."

Christina Hillman is strong in the high jump and long jump, and is especially strong in the shot. This winter, Hillman became the indoor county champion in the shot put. Junior Katie Feighner will compete in the javelin and in the shot put and

SP-F Soccer Jazz Girls Jam West Windsor Amazons, 5-0

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Jazz girls inter-city soccer team enjoyed some home cooking as they coasted to 5-0 victory over the West Windsor Amazons at School One on March 28. This was the first home game of the spring season for the Jazz and despite more cold blustery weather the Jazz offense was on fire.

Early in the game the Jazz moved smartly up the field. Meaghan Kelly darted past two defenders and found Maddie Wasser in the middle of the field. Wasser cleverly dished the ball to Hallie Mintz who squirted through the defense and found Bitsy Kipping alone at West Windsor door step. Kipping found the right corner of the net to give the Jazz a lead they would never relinquish.

On goal number two Loni Kaye battled for a lose ball on the right wing and set up Mintz out in from of

the goal. Mintz found an opening and her accurate shot gave the Jazz a 2-0 lead at half time.

The Jazz came out smoking in the second half and dominated West Windsor so much it seemed as if the Jazz had a couple extra players out there. Jess McGarry started the onslaught as she maneuvered her way down the middle and found Shannon Hauser by the left post. Hauser made a nifty move and poked the ball into the left corner.

Lauren Mains then took over, making a determined assault on the Amazon defense, and broke through to score goal number four. The Jazz kept up the pressure with a flurry of shots by Lauren Hercel, Gaby Falco and Katie Van Haasteren, but didn't find the net. Then finally Briana Falco outsmarted the defense as she cut in to intercept a goal kick and whistled a shot from 16 yards away that caught the left corner and the Jazz had their 5-0 victory. ter, combining consistency with

power. Following the number one, two and three hitters the line up indicates no shortcomings in what is truly believed to be an amazing batting order.

Team captains Butler and Reilly reflected their expectations and goals for the season. Butler summed it up by saying, "We will do our best every game, give it all we have and good things will come along therefore assuring to meet the goals we set for ourselves We are not entering the season cocky or overconfident, but with the understanding and conviction if we all do our job well, we achieve success."

Butler has a positive influence, with very high expectations. As he put it, "We have such a great program, a winning program, and we're

Whitley will be throwing the shot and discus.

Comparing this season's team to last year, Klimas said, "I would like to think that we are a little bit ahead. There's a few more girls out this year. We have a talented group of sophomores who competed as freshmen, so they have a year of experience under their belt."

Considering his outlook this season, Klimas commented, "I feel pretty confident that we can score some big points in championship meets. Hopefully, we will be able to do something in the conference and in the sectionals."

The Lady Raiders open at Westfield on Tuesday, April 13.

fun to watch." Reilly a basketball standout, added, "Everyone on this team has been involved in fall and winter sports, hence we are in the best physical and mental condition possible. This team is together, fine tuned and our attitude is super positive, we have a collection and a chemistry that is very difficult and rare to assemble!"

Reilly continued, "Personally, I expect an outstanding performance at shortstop, make good contact at the plate and we will come away with the county championship."

The Highlanders beefed up their schedule with the likes of very strong and talented schools from Cranford, Millburn, Union, Immaculata and Edison. They will open their season today at Hillside, then will travel to Cranford on April 3.

SPF Express, 4-3

A short-handed Scotch PlainsFanwood Express soccer team suffered a close defeat on March 28 to Cranford. Missing three key players, the Express scored first on an owngoal when Joseph Jacobi's strong free kick bounced off a Cranford defender's head into the goal.

After Cranford tied the score, the Express took the lead again when Clayton Balch picked up Mark Ciecura's corner kick and punched it into the left corner of the goal. The 21 halftime lead did not hold up, however, as the Express, battling the wind and lack of substitutes, gave up two quick goals to fall behind 3-2.

Midway through the second half, Jacobi launched another strong free kick. Matt Fleissner's perfect timing allowed him to burst past the defenders simultaneously with the ball and score one-on-one against the goalie. Minutes later, Cranford scored the deciding goal on a penalty kick. Jack Davis and Henry Coxe played well at halfback, and Joe Cepparulo contributed many strong clearing kicks from the fullback position.

SP-F Strikers Hammer Flemington Cougars 4-0

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Strikers soccer team turned out a great game against the Flemington Cougars, winning 4-0, in the second game of the Spring season.

In the first half of the game, the first point was scored by Tyler Stanek. Later, the Cougars attempted a shot on goal, but it was blocked by Tommy Sutter, using his head, literally. Jeff Stuart and Brandon Reddington each took a turn as goalkeeper and succeeded in blocking the few shots that the Cougars were able to take.

Goal number two was scored by Daniel LiVolsi. Michael DiVizio, known for his speed, was easily able to keep the Cougars at bay. Eddie Kahn and Rob Cunningham used plenty of determination and fancy

footwork to keep the Cougars scoreless.

During the second half, the Cougars were attempting to defend their goal, when Stanek stole the ball away from them and handed it off to Reddington who seized the opportunity and kicked the ball into the net making the score 3-0. Ryan Krueger was instrumental in blocking an attempt on goal, and played a great game despite the stitches in his hand.

Taylor Molinaro, as goalkeeper, successfully blocked anything being fired his way. Tim Stuart was able to keep the ball moving downfield and was a tremendous help in keeping the SP-F U-9 Strikers on top of the game. The fourth and final goal was fired by Timmy Leischner.
