TEAM OF THE YEAR: Mount St. Dominic came up one run short of the Non-Public A state title, but had its chances.
Unfortunately for the Lions, they couldn’t find the clutch base knock they needed to hand then-No. 2 St. John Vianney its first loss of the season. But they still finish the year ranked No. 6 in the NJ.com Top 20, a remarkable feat for a team that stumbled to a 4-4 start this season.
Eventually, though, Mount St. Dominic found its rhythm and rattled off 14 straight wins from April 21 to May 18. And after losing four of their first eight, the Lions lost just four of their final 25 to post an excellent 25-8 record against a brutally tough strength of schedule.
