Heights take on Glen Rock on Friday night at Depken Field
Friday night might be a big night for the Hasbrouck Heights football team. The last two seasons the Aviators have come out on the wrong end after losing back-to-back openers to Saddle Brook. And the Aviators have finished with back-to-back 6-4 records while just missing out on the state playoffs. The two losses to the Falcons ended a string of four straight years in winning the season opener. A victory over the Panthers will get them off to a great start in terms of the power points for the new aligned Group 1 North 1 state playoffs. "Our key game is the first game," said Hasbrouck Heights head coach Nick Delcalzo after the first scrimmage a couple weeks ago against New Milford. "We have to get better to be ready for them. They're (Glen …

Heights will also try for Bergen County Tourney win
It was a short trip in the state tournament last season and the Hasbrouck Heights/Wood-Ridge boys soccer team wants to make it a lot longer this fall. The Aviators were knocked out by Newton, 2-0, in the opening game of the 2011 Group 2 North state playoffs. What is so unusual is that it was the only loss for the season by two goals. In the 9-8 record in 2011, seven of the eight losses were by one goal. For this season Hasbrouck Heights head coach Vinny Marchese needs to replace the goal-scoring that he lost with the graduation like Dylan Colombo who was All North Jersey Interscholastic Conference first team forward. But Marchese and Heights/Wood-Ridge do have 10 seniors on the roster so they have the background to win. "We're a balanced …

High school swimming team Coach Tom Romano said the team’s unofficial motto was “making history” and that’s exactly what the team did in its inaugural season.

Romano said the team did well in its first year. For a new team, it finished third in the league championship, finished eighth in the county championship and sent one swimmer to a state championship, he told the audience.

The Aviators outran Pascack Hills, 73-64, in the race for winning the state sectional title at the John Bennett Indoor Athletic Complex in Toms River last week.
