State Tournament-Central

Seeds announced 5-13-19

5-13-19 Central comments: The Central is absolutely stacked with top-level teams and despite Old Bridge, the 2018 Champs, being dominant as #1 at the cutoff at 29-1, there are many teams that could rise up to make this sectional interesting. We project The Knights could play both Howell and Bridgewater Raritan before the finals and could then have St. Joe’s or East Brunswick waiting for them on 5/31. Not easy! The Central boasts 10 teams in the top 20. And exceptionally deep sectional so anything can happen. NJP has Howell as the 11th best team in NJ with a 14-1 record but they netted the 8th seed here. Colonia and Wall have had great seasons but landed at #9 and #11. There are 4 of the Super 6 teams here plus Hunterdon Central and Hillsborough. With that being said, Old Bridge could benefit from the higher level of play if they can get through the sectional and end up better prepared for the TOC. It should make for some can’t miss quarter-final and semi-final contests. NJP selects: OLD BRIDGE
