The Verona High School baseball team improved its season record to 6-2 on Monday with a blowout 10-1 win over Cedar Grove. The Hillbillies are now tied for first place in the SEC Liberty Conference with Bloomfield, a team that Verona defeated earlier this month.

Pierce Coppola was on the mound against the Panthers, and he allowed four hits and one run while striking out 14 and walking one.

There was strong hitting across the board for Verona. Anthony Zamloot lead the team in hits, going 3-for-5 at the plate, including two RBIs. Nick Kozachuck, a junior in his second varsity season, had three RBIs and sophomore Kyle McCaffrey added two RBIs.

VHS baseball travels to Glen Ridge High School’s Hurell Field this afternoon for a 4 p.m. start. The Ridgers are 4-1 on the season.

In other Verona sports this week, the boys lacrosse team rebounded from an 11-7 Monday loss to Montclair High School to beat Nutley 9-5 on Tuesday. Girls lacrosse also had a rebound win, coming back from a 17-8 loss to Glen Ridge on Saturday to out-score Morristown-Beard 9-7 on Monday. VHS softball’s record slipped to 4-5 with a loss to Mount Saint Dominic Academy. The Lady Hillbillies host Nutley for a 10 a.m. game today.
