The Livingston High School varsity baseball and softball teams have both had great seasons and are enjoying a good run in the state tournaments. They both play tomorrow in big games. I would like to tell you exactly what they are each playing for, but the high school sports coverage on nj.com, for as extensive as they try to be, is really frustrating to navigate. Anyway, that said, big ups to the Lancers!
The girls are undefeated behind their star pitcher Jessica Peslak. She has all but one or two wins for the 24 (ish) and 0 Lancers. They won the Essex County tournament and are (I think) deep in the states and probably favored to win it all. I have plenty of buddies with kids on the team and I’m happy for them that they get to be part of a magical run.
The boys are playing for some kind of final on Friday – not sure if its the last game or if there is potential for a next round. They won a big 15 inning game last week and have certainly gotten better as the season has gone on, and may just be peaking at the right time. Go get em! The games are scheduled so that one could get to both – unless they have to umpire a stupid game that night!
