Current Standings (as of the end of the week):

Varsity: 11-3

JV: 7-6

The Varsity team currently stands in second place for the SEC Colonial Division and is only 3 points behind Livingston. Caldwell high school sits in third place and is 5 points behind Millburn. If Livingston or Caldwell lose any matches this coming week, Millburn is that much closer to taking first place.

We only have a few matches remaining for the entire season! Come on down to Hanover Lanes on the following dates at 3:50 PM and support our Millers!

  • Monday, January 23: West Orange HS (LAST MATCH V. WEST ORANGE)
  • Tuesday, January 24: Irvington HS (LAST MATCH V. IRVINGTON)
  • Wednesday, January 25: Central HS [AT EAGLE ROCK LANES] (FINAL MATCH OF THE SEASON)

After high school matches finish, the team will continue onto State Sectionals and NJSIAA championships. Best of luck to our team!

Go Millers!
