The week of Oct. 28-Nov. 3, 2018 saw four Verona High School teams advance to their sport’s playoffs, the Verona Police Department rolled out body cams, and more.

The VHS football team defeated Dumont High School 35-7 on Friday night in the first round of the NJSIAA North Jersey, Section 2, Group 2 playoffs. The volleyball team marched through its sectionals, blowing past Emerson 25-3, 25-8 on Tuesday, beating Highland Park 25-14, 25-10 on Thursday and then Cresskill 25-18, 25-16 on Saturday.  Both the boys and the girls cross country teams qualified for the Group championship in Holmdel this coming Saturday. The girls took third place at the North 2 Group 2 sectionals.

Marching Band Director Erik Lynch applauded the community for its support of the Marching Maroon & White during a winning fall competition season, saying “We continue to be outside-of-the-box committing to playing the absolute best repertoire we can get our hands on, while having the largest band-to-school ratio of any school I have ever seen!”

The Verona Police Department rolled out body cameras for all its officers this week. The cameras capture not only still images, but video, audio and radio, and will be activated on every police call. Verona will also be giving officers Tasers later this year.
