Millburn Girls Tennis (8-0)

Once again, the Millburn are the Northeast Region B champions! In their toughest test of the season, Millburn was able to edge out Tenafly for a 3-2 team victory on Tuesday. The Miller squad got off to a slow start, taking consecutive losses in first and second singles. However, the Millers finally caught fire, winning three straight matches to capture their second championship of the season. Angelina Lei was able to come back after dropping the first set and get the win, 2-1. Anna Bansal and Veda Mashusudan dominated in first doubles, winning in straight sets, and Jessica Rievman and Saniya Sinkar secured the championship in second doubles, winning 2 sets to 1. The Millers complete a perfect season, with an incredible record of 8-0.

Millburn Girls Soccer (5-4-1)

Looking to extend their win streak to four straight games, the girls took on Caldwell on Tuesday. From start to finish, it was a very even contest. Both squads scored a goal in each half, and they were unable to break the tie in overtime, resulting in a 2-2 draw. Maggie Ellsworth and Zoe Palomaki each netted a goal, while Carly Berntein continued her star-like play with another assist. Bernstein now has either a goal or an assist in the last five matches she has played. Liliana Tomko was a brick wall in goal, tallying 10 saves in the tie.

On Friday, the Millers suffered their first defeat in five games at the hands of Glen Ridge, 3-1. Carly Bernstein scored another goal in the first half, but it was not enough to dig out a win for the girls. Glen Ridge netted two in the first, and one in the second to give the Millers their fourth loss of the season. Liliana Tomko had 10 saves in the loss.

Millburn Field Hockey (7-3-2)

The girls completed their fifth straight win with a 5-0 domination of Columbia. The Millers got off to a quick start, scoring two in the opening period. They followed that with one goal in the second, and put the icing on the cake with two more in the third. Meghan Boehm added her 11th and 12th goal of the season along with an assist. Boehm now has a goal in the last five matches, with more than a single goal in each of the last four. Olivia Regan, Miriam Wolk and Brooke Snider each added a goal of their own. Kate Regan tore through the Columbia defence with her passing, racking up a hat trick of assists. 

On Friday, the Millers took on Glen Ridge, seeking their sixth win in a row. After zeros stayed on the scoreboard for the first two periods, the Millers were able to break the ice with two goals in the third. Brooke Snider scored the first off of a Kate Regan assist. Olivia Regan and Grace Regan each added a goal and an assist, sealing the deal for the Millers. The girls defeated Glen Ridge 3-1.

Millburn Boys Soccer (5-0-1)

After a quarantine scare that sidelined the boys soccer team for a long two weeks, the Millers got right back to their winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Newark Academy. On Saturday, Blake Wiseman got the scoring started in the first half with a left footed shot from the center of the box, off of an assist from Tomas Santos. Early in the second half, Baruch Akwaboa gave the Millers a two goal lead with his first of the season, finishing a cross from Jason Mazer. The Millers will finish up the regular season this week.

Millburn Football (0-6)

Another week, and another tough loss for the Miller football program. Madison defeated the Millers with a final score of 45-6. Quarterback Luke Goldenberg was unable to get anything going through the air, throwing for only 38 passing yards. Jackson Weber led the rushing attack with 50 yards on the ground. Perhaps the only bright spot for the Millers in a miserable loss was a trick play that led to WR Luke Pickard tossing a 65 yard touchdown pass to Robbie Almgren. Once again, Michael Policarpio led the defense with 9 tackles, and Conor Tuths added an interception. The Millers were only down 13-6 at half, but the Madison squad kicked it into high gear in the second, outscoring the Millers 32-0. The boys will close out the season on Thursday against Kearny.
