State champs should be honored at the State House, right?
So the Morristown High School hockey team visited Trenton on Thursday.
Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll–a pretty fair hockey player at Delbarton–and Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco (both R-25th Dist.) presented Coach Bobby Jones and his players with a resolution praising them for the first hockey title in MHS history.
The Colonials beat Ramsey, 1-0, in a thrilling championship showdown at the Prudential Center in March. It was especially sweet for Morristown after falling short in the finals for the previous two years.
Coach Jones and co-captain Jack Maietta addressed the Assembly, sharing some reflections on the season.
Afterwards, the coach described the Trenton trip as an honor, and a last hurrah of sorts for the team, which is losing 11 seniors to graduation.
