HILLSBOROUGH: Raiders repeat as Somerset County Tournament baseball champs
Team effort lifts baseball to title
The Hillsborough High baseball team joined some rare company when it repeated as Somerset County Tournament champions.

The Raiders became the first team since Immaculata in 2008 to repeat as county champions when they topped Watchung Hills, 3-1, last Saturday at TD Bank Park in Bridgewater.

"Immaculata is the only team in 43 years to win three in a row, which they did from 2006 to 2008 and they’ve never had a repeat other than that," Hillsborough coach Eric Eden said. "This was the first time other than Immaculata that a team was able to repeat.

   ”I was at a real crossroads back then. I could do my first Broadway show or do this TV show that no one ever heard of and go out to Hollywood and sing,” he says. “I had a week to decide and so I went out to California and kept advancing so I had to thank them for the opportunity and I stuck with the show.”
