BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Amalia Heissler, goalie for Gov. Livingston field hockey, had 24 saves in the Highlanders' 4-0 loss to Montclair Kimberley Academy on Thursday, Sept. 26 in front of the home crowd.  Helping with the defense, Lauren Sobol and Isha Mehrotra each had a goal line save.

"The team is coming together real nice and we have improved a lot from the beginning of the season," said senior captain Katie Morrison.  The team faced a tough schedule so far,  playing teams of a higher level of competition. Junior Ryan Shepherd added, "We need to come out in the first half to get the win we're looking for."

"The second half was a good example of the normal play,"  said coach Lindsay Mirabella.  "Our conference and county is challenging.  Upcoming games will help to even out our record."  She has a strong group of players with potential and spirit. 

The Gov. Livingston field hockey team's next game is on the road against Newark Academy on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 4 p.m.  The quarterfinal round of the UCIAC Tournament begins Saturday, Oct. 5.
