Morristown High’s top-seeded field hockey team got off on the right foot Saturday in its quest to defend its state crown, blanking Columbia High School 8-0 at home.
The Colonials won without injured captain Devon Colquhoun. Olivia Graham provided more than enough offense with a hat trick.
Morristown received a first-round bye; the team faces Phillipsburg on Wednesday in the semifinals of the NJSIAA North 1, Group 4 tournament.
