2016 Season Comes to an End With Significant Accomplishments

Even though the Hilltoppers fell short of their ultimate goal this season, there were some notable accomplishments for this talented team starting with becoming 2016 Mid-State 38 Raritan Division Champions for the first time since 2013 and the first ever in Group 4 play. The Hilltoppers also had Summit’s first ever Group 4 playoff victory, 42-7 against Colonia, the team they came up 5 yards short of beating in last year’s playoffs.  The team won 8 games, 2 of which were heart stopping “cardiac kids” last second comebacks that embodied the perseverance of this tough minded team. There were many outstanding individual achievements that no doubt will be recognized in the weeks ahead, notably Liam Dougherty breaking Summit’s tackling record. Our Seniors leave behind a solid and successful foundation for future Hilltoppers to build on.
