Basement Waterproofing in Aberdeen

Healthy Way has been providing the most trusted, effective basement waterproofing in New Jersey since 2007. Waterproofing your basement is crucial to protecting the value of your home and the safety of your family. That is why we only employ the best, brightest, fully-certified experts, who will treat your home like it was their very own. Taking shortcuts just isn’t in our nature. We use innovative technology and time-tested techniques to discover and solve your basement’s water-related problems.

Because basement wall leaks and water seepage are often caused by structural issues, external waterproofing is required. While some companies only seal the interior walls of your basement, Healthy Way goes the extra mile to fix your water issues inside and out. That way, your basement leaks stop for good.

Once we find the root of the water issues in your basement, we will get to work on a custom-designed solution that will exceed your basement waterproofing needs.

Our basement waterproofing services in New Jersey help prevent the following problems:

  • Mold growth, which can cause serious health hazards for your family
  • Basement flooding
  • Loss of valuables
  • Serious water damage to your home’s walls and floors
  • Decrease in home value

Don’t wait to address the moisture developing in your basement – call Healthy Way today for a customized solution to your water seepage problems.

What Causes Moisture in Your Basement?

It’s easy to spot water leaking through a crack in your basement, but most homeowners don’t know that there is a potential for water issues without heavy rains or obvious signs of standing water. At Healthy Way, we try to educate our clients on the real causes of water in your basement. Here are two of the most common reasons why you might need basement waterproofing in Aberdeen:

Clay Bowl Effect

The “Clay Bowl” Effect

It might not be evident on the surface, but many basements are built in a below-grade dip, which is surrounded by backfill. Because backfill is made up of soil that was removed during foundation digging, it creates an empty shape or “bowl” effect. Once the foundation is finished, this loose soil is placed back around the foundation. Unfortunately, soil of this consistency is more absorbent and porous than the undisturbed soil around it, which is hard-packed and less porous. When rain or thunderstorms occurs, the soil closest to your home becomes saturated, putting pressure on your basement walls.

Hydrostatic Pressure

Hydrostatic Pressure:

This kind of pressure affects homeowners with property built below the water table or on a hillside where water runs down a hill. When the soil around your foundation becomes saturated, it will expand and put intense pressure on the walls of your foundation and basement. This pressure can create cracks, giving water an easy route into your basement.

How Healthy Way Solves Your Basement Waterproofing Needs

Having a wet basement not only puts your health at risk, it lowers the value of your home and makes it more difficult to sell. The good news? We offer a number of waterproofing services and products to solve your problems fast. A few of our solutions include:

  • Sump pumps
  • Perimeter drainage systems
  • Doorway drainage systems
  • High-strength washer hoses
  • Floor and wall crack repair
  • Replacement windows
  • Flood protection for your water heater

When you use Healthy Way for basement waterproofing in New Jersey, you can rest easy knowing that all our systems come with a written, lifetime warranty. This warranty is transferrable, meaning you can re-establish your home’s value and give future owners confidence knowing that their new home is protected.

The Healthy Way Basement Waterproofing Process

Because every home is different, your basement waterproofing solution could be vastly different than that of your next-door neighbor. Many factors play a part when it comes to keeping your basement dry and safe for living. As a general rule, we approach each issue with a “prevention over repair” mindset. By taking this stance, we give our clients a more cost-effective, long-term resolution. We’re not in the business of putting a “Band-Aid” on your water problem – we want to fix your issue completely, so you don’t have to worry about recurring problems. Our effective basement waterproofing systems include a mix of the following strategies:

Interior Waterproofing

Interior Waterproofing

Interior waterproofing methods usually start with our team ensuring that any holes or cracks in your basement floors, walls, and windows are sealed properly. Sealing cracks in your basement is an important first step since this is usually the first place where water can enter your home. Our sealants keep your basement dry and help prevent more moisture from finding its way into your home. Interior waterproofing strategies like these also help lower humidity levels in your basement. While sealants and other interior waterproofing strategies help correct initial issues, they don’t usually solve the underlying problem causing leaks in your basement. Those issues are most often found outside your home.

Exterior Waterproofing

Exterior Waterproofing

Once our team is finished with your interior waterproofing, we will move to the exterior of your home. Waterproofing the outside of your home is often a more complex, nuanced goal. Because of the difficult nature of exterior waterproofing, we recommend you consult with our team of professionals before tackling the job on your own. Generally speaking, our team beings the outdoor waterproofing process by excavating the soil around your home’s foundation. Once we remove the soil surrounding your foundation, our experts will apply a polymer-based sealant to any cracks we discover. This sealant is a long-term solution and should remain intact for the life of your home. While the Healthy Way team solves your outdoor moisture problems, we will also check your downspouts, to make sure they aren’t clogged. An inefficient gutter system does a poor job of directing water away from your home’s foundation, which can cause more moisture to seep into your basement over time.

Exterior Waterproofing

Drainage Systems

One of the most common reasons that people need basement waterproofing in cityname is because they have a poor drainage system. A proper drainage system is paramount in keeping your basement dry and your family safe. These systems are meant to direct water away from your home and come in many forms, from French Drains to simple systems like ground soil. If you’re thinking of installing a complex drainage system, save yourself some time and check the soil around your foundation first to make sure it isn’t retaining moisture. If a more complex system like a sump pump is required, it’s best to work with certified professionals like those at Healthy Way, to make sure your drainage system is installed correctly.

WHICH WATERPROOFING SOLUTION IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Because every home is different, it’s hard to say what kind of waterproofing solution is right for your situation. Most homeowners require a combination of interior and exterior waterproofing. There are dozens of factors that come into play when it comes to waterproofing your home, so the answer to your problem may be different than your neighbor’s. The good news is that Healthy Way is fully equipped to handle whatever moisture issue you’re having. We will work tirelessly to make certain your basement is dry, mold-free, and safe to enjoy. That way, you can get back to living life rather than worrying about mold growth or foundation damage.

There\'s more to NJ\'s labor shortage than unemployment benefits. Here\'s why

It\'s been more than a year since Ken Gaughran lost his job in radio promotions due to the pandemic, and he is slowly losing hope of getting back into that field.So in recent months, the 27-year-old Toms River resident has searched for employers that offer a decent wage and benefits, all while wondering how long he can wait before he needs to search for a restaurant or retail job."We all had our careers, now what are we going to do?"

It\'s been more than a year since Ken Gaughran lost his job in radio promotions due to the pandemic, and he is slowly losing hope of getting back into that field.

So in recent months, the 27-year-old Toms River resident has searched for employers that offer a decent wage and benefits, all while wondering how long he can wait before he needs to search for a restaurant or retail job.

"We all had our careers, now what are we going to do?" Gaughran said. "They\'re gone. That\'s been the toughest part."

If Gaughran sounds confused, he\'s not alone. New Jersey\'s labor market continued to emerge from its pandemic freeze in June, gaining thousands of jobs and convincing more unemployed workers to get off the sidelines.

But the state\'s job growth doesn\'t appear to be fast enough to bring relief to employers who have struggled to find enough staff to operate.

NJ labor shortage:How Monmouth, Ocean businesses stay alive when they can\'t find workers

And a state report provided little clarity about what the post-pandemic economy will look like. Will workers surge back into the labor force in September when schools reopen and enhanced federal unemployment benefits expire? Or are they in the same boat as Guaghran, wondering if their careers are gone?

Jobless workers might be reevaluating what they are — and are not — willing to do, said Maria Heidkamp, director of program development at Rutgers University\'s Heldrich Center for Workforce Development.

But "I think we\'ve just got so many unknowns right now," she said.

Gaughran, who grew up in Toms River, spent three years working at a radio station before he was laid off. And he has relied on enhanced unemployment benefits — first $600 a week, now $300 a week — to help pay the rent on an apartment he shares with two roommates.

He had hoped to get back into the radio industry, but he has found jobs there in short-supply. So he has spent his days looking online and trying to keep his spirits up by taking walks, spending time with friends, writing and taking photographs.

The unemployment benefits have given him some breathing room to hold out for a better job.

"A lot of people don\'t want to go back to part-time jobs anymore," Gaughran said. "They want to get the full-time job now. And that\'s been my experience."

More New Jerseyans are finding work. The state added 16,600 jobs in June, on top of 17,200 new jobs in May, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development reported Thursday.

The state\'s unemployment rate ticked up to 7.3% from 7.2%, but the increase was partly due to more workers feeling confident enough to jump into the labor force and go job hunting, the statistics show.

In the bigger picture: New Jersey has added more than 70,000 jobs during the first six months of the year, a historically fast pace.

But the Garden State still has a long road ahead to return to its pre-pandemic levels; it has recovered about 59% of the jobs it lost during the outset of the pandemic last March and April, according to the state.

\'Not like anything we\'ve seen before\':How COVID changed the job hunt for NJ college grads

The gap remains even though many employers say they have plenty of jobs ready and waiting.

Talula\'s, a restaurant in Asbury Park, and Alternate Ending, a brewery in Aberdeen, have been slowed by the shortage of workers, said Shanti Mignogna, who operates the restaurants with her husband, Steve.

At times, Shanti Mignogna said, Talula\'s staff will have to explain to customers that they have empty tables, but not enough people to serve them.

The restaurateurs began to offer $1,000 signing bonuses. Since then, they have had fewer applicants fail to show up for interviews. And they have managed to fill at least some openings.

But Mignogna said she couldn\'t rest.

"It\'s interesting," she said Thursday. "Right in this exact moment, I feel good because we had a new person just start at Talula\'s, we have a new guy starting at Alternate Ending, we had a great interview yesterday. So in this exact moment, I feel really good."

"But the thing is, that could change this afternoon because turnover has been bonkers," she said. "So just right when I\'m starting to feel a little bit comfortable, our sous chef quits, or our chef gets poached by another place."

Workers appear to be on the move. Some 2.8% of workers quit their jobs in April and another 2.5% of workers quit their jobs in May, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the highest level on record that dates to 2000.

Employers can\'t seem to replace them fast enough. There were 9.2 million job openings nationwide in May, 31% more than before the pandemic, when unemployment was at record lows, according to BLS.

"Last week we interviewed 20 people," said Anna Santucci, owner of Express Employment Professionals, a hiring agency in Howell. "Ten of those people were placed literally before they left the office. No interview. Just start, please."

Still, it is clear that employers and employees aren\'t on the same page, making analysts wonder just how much the economy and labor market have shifted during the past 16 months.

Some workers have moved, started their own businesses, offered to work remotely, held out for better pay or benefits.

And in the case of Ken Gaughran, some have watched their job disappear, leaving them with the sinking feeling that it would never come back.

"There\'s been a lot of people saying the extra $300 or $600 were making people not want to work," Gaughran said. "I\'ll be totally honest, I never wanted to go back to work more. I\'ve been losing it sitting at home."

NEW JERSEY — Microbreweries are growing at a rapid pace in New Jersey, and it isn\'t just among those of us enamored with craft beer. It\'s good for the economy.

Scenario: It\'s a Saturday afternoon. You walk into your local brewpub. You take the tour and see how, and sometimes why, this particular brewer makes their beer.

Then it\'s time for a drink, but they\'re not allowed to sell food. Breweries can only offer beer made on location for consumption and purchase. The whole operation is actually classified as light manufacturing.

So you head across the street to get pizza, Chinese food, a vegan dish; anything that\'s offered locally. Then you head back to enjoy local food and local beer. Everyone wins.

That\'s why you can even find microbreweries in so-called "dry towns," like Collingswood, Haddonfield, Island Heights and Pennington.

It\'s why Moorestown, which was a dry town for much of its existence, recently approved legislation to bring breweries into town.

The only question for you is who do you want to help? You obviously want to shop local, but you might want to branch out and experience good beer and good local food elsewhere.

The county with the most breweries in New Jersey is Monmouth County, which is home to 17 establishments, according to newjerseycraftbeer.com There are three in Asbury Park alone.Then there\'s Cumberland County, with just one. Salem County has none.

Let\'s raise a glass together.

Independence Day is Sunday, July 4, and members of the craft brewing community across the state have plenty of ways to celebrate on tap, including special releases and events at their tasting rooms.

Here are some of the big holiday weekend happenings. Cheers!

Alternate Ending Beer Co., Aberdeen

Craft brewery and restaurant Alternate Ending Beer Co. in Aberdeen is closed on the Fourth of July, but they have some big things planned for the next day.

Alternate Ending will host its July 5th Cook-Out from noon to 9 p.m., with happy hour specials all day and live music from 5 to 8 p.m. Expect all of the holiday staples — burgers, hot dogs, corn and fries.

The story continues below the gallery.

Go: 1057 Route 34, Aberdeen; 732-612-8422, alternateendingbeerco.com.

Bolero Snort Brewery, Carlstadt

Head to Bolero Park, the spacious outdoor beer garden behind Bolero Snort Brewery, on the Fourth to try two releases set for the holiday. The first is the reoccurring Bomb Pop-inspired brew called Bull Pop, a Berliner with notes of cherry, lime and raspberry.

The second new release is Cabana Bomb, an icy and refreshing beer smoothie. If you’d rather have Bolero Snort for your home barbecue, the brewery is offering free home delivery anywhere in the state through the weekend of the Fourth.

Go: 316 20th St., Carlstadt; 201-464-0639, bolerosnort.com.

Forgotten Boardwalk, Cherry Hill

If you can\'t be on the boardwalk for the Fourth, the next best thing is a boardwalk-themed brewery.

Forgotten Boardwalk has it all, from the slightly creepy maritime-meets-sideshow lore to the Skee-Ball machine. There\'s also a large outdoor space if the weather cooperates for you to really kick back and enjoy your long weekend. (We suggest reserving a table in advance online to avoid disappointment.)

And for the Fourth of July weekend, the brewery also has First Firkin Friday on July 2, which marks the return of a special tapping of three different cask-conditioned J\'aime Sparked Seltzers. In honor of this red-white-and-blue celebration of independence, the brewery will offer very limited quantities of cherry, vanilla or blue raspberry.

Get it while it lasts, folks. And play an extra round of Skee-Ball for us.

Go: 1940 Olney Ave., Cherry Hill; forgottenboardwalk.squarespace.com.

Fort Nonsense Brewing Co., Denville

Head to Fort Nonsense for cold pints and beer slushies in the taproom or out in the beer garden. The brewery will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on July 4 and from noon to 5 p.m. on July 5.

Go: 3118 Route 10 West, Denville; 862-397-4777, fortnonsensebrewing.com.

Glenbrook Brewery, Morristown

Glenbrook Brewery has a Revolutionary war theme, so there\'s perhaps no better place to celebrate the Fourth. For the occasion, Glenbrook will bring back the refreshing and crisp McCullough Kolsch brew and introduce a new beer called Incoming, a juicy and floral Galaxy hops IPA. Historical re-enactors representing the New Jersey 2nd Regiment will be at the brewery from noon to 3 p.m., singing 18th-century songs, reading the Declaration of Independence and telling Revolutionary War stories.

Icarus Brewing, Lakewood

Lakewood\'s Icarus Brewing will help you show your New Jersey pride this weekend with the return of Liberty and Prosperity, its 6.5% ABV North East India Pale Ale named after our state\'s motto and bearing the state flag as its can art.

On the redcoat site of things, Icarus is also bringing back Bitterish Invasion. A 5.2% ABV Extra Special Bitter, the malty, English-style ale has a Union Jack on its label.

Liberty and Prosperity, Bitterish Invasion and the returning North East Imperial India Pale Ale Forever Forward were released on Wednesday, June 30.

Icarus\' tasting room hours are noon to 8 p.m. Thursdays, noon to 10 p.m. Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays and noon to 8 p.m. Mondays.

Go: 1790 Swathmore Ave., Lakewood; icarusbrewing.square.site.

Last Wave Brewing Co., Point Pleasant Beach

There are three special releases cued up for this weekend at Last Wave Brewing Co. in Point Pleasant Beach.

A collaboration with Heavy Reel Brewing Co. in Seaside Heights, Surfer\'s Blood Raspberry Lemonade Sour Ale returns this weekend on draft and in cans in the Last Wave tasting room as well as at area liquor stores.

In addition, the Leroy the Masochist New England-style double India Pale Ale will be in the tasting room this weekend and will hit liquor stores next week, and the Strawberry Banana Sour will be an on-tap tasting room exclusive this weekend.

Last Wave Brewing Co.\'s tasting room will be open this weekend from 4 to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 1 to 9 p.m. Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Go: 601 Bay Ave., Point Pleasant Beach; 732-450-8600, lastwavebrewing.com.

Magnify Brewing Company, Fairfield

Magnify will celebrate the Fourth with brews inspired by the good ol’ stars and stripes (and popsicles). Try the Blue Raspberry Rocket Pop, a 5% smoothie-style sour, brewed with flavors of vanilla ice cream and blue raspberry. Then, move on to the Strawberry Rocket Pop, a similar beer with strawberry instead of blue raspberry. These refreshing red and blue beers couldn’t look more festive.

Go: 1275 Bloomfield Ave., Building 7 Unit 40C, Fairfield; magnifybrewing.com.

Seven Tribesmen Brewery, Wayne

The folks at Seven Tribesmen are offering a gentle reminder that July 3 is National Independent Beer Run Day – the day when everyone dashes to the liquor store (or perhaps their local brewery) to pick up beer for their Fourth of July barbecue. In celebration, Seven Tribesmen will release four beers: one new and three old favorites.

Look out for Packanack Pils, a drinkable Czech-style golden pilsner with a bitter finish; Mad Anthony, a hoppy Pale Ale named for Revolutionary War hero Anthony Wayne; and Rhineland, a yeasty, slightly fruity, slightly bitter Kölsch, so named for the Rhine River in Germany where the style of beer originates.

Joining the lineup is a new pale lager called The Wood Worker. Before it was a brewery, Seven tribesman was a furniture woodworking shop, and this beer is named to honor the history of the building.

Go: 1151 Route 23, Wayne; 973-706-7337, seventribesmen.com.

Source Brewing, Colts Neck

Source Brewing, the farmhouse brewery in scenic Colts Neck, is partnering with New Jersey meat purveyor Pat LaFrieda for Independence Day, a hazy India Pale Ale dropping in time for the holiday weekend.

At 6.5% ABV, Independence Day is also a fundraising endeavor, with a portion of the proceeds supporting the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City.

Brewed with Cascade, Centennial, Citra and Simcoe hops in addition to flaked oats and malted wheat, Independence Day is available for pre-orders now via Beer Broadcast, and will be released on Friday.

Source is open noon to 8 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, noon to 9:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays. They are closed Tuesdays.

Go: 300 Route 34, Colts Neck; 732-431-2337, sourcebrewing.com.

Red, White and Brew, Audubon

It\'s not hard to make the connection between this South Jersey brewery and this midsummer holiday.

If you want your long weekend coupled with a trip back in time, stop by and hope they still have some Summer of \'76 on tap. It\'s an American wheat that clocks in at 6.3 %, perfect to beat the July heat.

Heck, hum along to some 1976 Billboard classics, while you\'re at it: "Golden Years,\'\' "More than a Feeling\'\' and of course, "Afternoon Delight,\'\' which brings it all back to the fireworks again.

Most of the beers here have patriotic names, so you can also choose from the likes of Give Me Liberty kolsch (5.5% ABV), Checks and Balances IPA (7% ABV) and Pauls\' Midnight Ride (4.9% ABV) porter.

Wet Ticket Brewing, Rahway

Throughout the summer, Wet Ticket Brewing is hosting local musicians under their tented beer garden that can accommodate about 100 to 120 people. The outdoor space includes a 40-by-40 tent, furniture passed down from a Munich brewery and barrel tables.

On the Fourth of July, the Lonesome Pines will perform their rock and alternative-country songs from 2 to 5 p.m. That day, the beer garden and indoor tasting room will be open from 1 to 7 p.m.

Can\'t make it on the Fourth? Wet Ticket Brewing will also be open Thursday and Friday from 4 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 9 p.m. on the holiday weekend.

After missing the entire 2020 season, perhaps no softball season had been more anticipated than the 2021 campaign.

The year delivered in many ways with county, conference, sectional and ultimately state and Tournament of Champions winners and a final team Top 20.

And now a return to the official conclusion of every softball season - the all-state softball team. Below check out the 14 players throughout New Jersey who have been selected second-team all-state.

Alissa Eimont, Matawan, Sr., P

Eimont has been named all-state for the third time. After finishing as a third-team selection as a freshman and sophomore, Eimont is taking home second-team honors this year. She posted a 1.57 ERA with 186 strikeouts in 116 innings. Also a solid hitter, Eimont compiled a .351 batting average with 11 extra-base hits.

Makenzie Edwards, Hammonton, Sr., P

Edwards came full circle, pitching the Blue Devils to South Jersey Group 3 titles as a freshman and senior. She posted a 1.24 ERA and 187 strikeouts while leading Hammonton to a Cape-Atlantic League United Division title in its first year in the league. Edwards was also an offensive standout. She hit .400 with 30 hits, 20 runs scored, 23 RBIs and 17 extra-base hits.

Hailey Errichiello, Roxbury, Fr., P

Errichiello was one of several new names this season that truly impressed. In the circle she allowed just 22 earned runs and 97 hits in 135 1/3 innings worked while striking out 196 batters. She was just as dangerous in the batter’s box as well as she had a .317 batting average with 33 runs, 21 RBIs and 10 extra-base hits.

Lea Kosinski, Hunterdon Central, Sr., C

Kosinski was a threat any time she picked up the bat for an always dangerous Hunterdon Central team. The senior connected for a .524 batting average to go along with 28 runs and 28 RBIs, posting 18 extra-base hits (including nine home runs) and drawing 14 walks.

Cassie Betz, Wall, Sr., INF

Betz was the top hitter on a potent Wall offense. She was among the state leaders with 56 hits and she posted a .523 batting average. The senior scored 41 runs and knocked in 38. Of the 56 hits, 21 went for extra bases, including eight home runs.

Ava Cino, Central, Sr., INF

Cino was part of a standout senior class that sparked the Golden Eagles to a sectional final and an Ocean County title. She finished with 53 hits and a .525 average. Cino was also a major run producer, knocking in 49 and scoring 28 times. She finished with 19 extra-base hits, including eight home runs.

Mary-Kate Murray, St. Thomas Aquinas, So., INF

St. Thomas Aquinas has had some big names with the bat in recent years and Murray looks to be continuing that trend. She posted a .550 batting average with 52 RBIs and 33 runs while making great contact en route to 23 extra-base hits (12 home runs) while drawing 12 walks.

Kelsey Smith, Steinert, , Sr., INF

Smith made her varsity debut as a senior. She was on junior varsity as a freshman, missed her sophomore year because of an injury and saw her junior campaign disappear as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But she made her presence felt as a senior. Smith finished with 43 hits and a .573 average. Smith scored 38 runs and knocked in 44. Of her 14 extra-base hits, six were home runs.

Nathalia DiIanni, Livingston, Sr., OF

DiIanni was a batter that always came up in clutch situations for a Livingston team that collected its first ever state title and reached the T of C finale. DiIanni was a rock in center field defensively and was a threat with the bat, totaling a .473 batting average with 26 runs, 18 RBIs, 10 extra-base hits and 18 stolen bases.

Jenna Giattino, Donovan Catholic, So., OF

For most of the season, Giattino was the leadoff hitter for the No. 1 Griffins. In her debut season, Giattino finished with 43 hits and a .483 average. She scored 45 runs and stole 21 bases but wasn’t just a singles hitter. Giattino finished with 16 extra-base hits, including seven home runs, and knocked in 19.

Brynn Hopkins, Robbinsville, Sr., OF

Hopkins was part of a strong senior class that helped the Ravens to their fifth Group 2 state championship in 10 seasons. Hopkins finished with 40 hits and a .455 batting average. She scored 33 runs and knocked in 37. Hopkins totaled 19 extra-base hits and also drew a team-high 14 walks.

Sydney Samuel, Ramapo, Jr., UTILITY

Like her teammate and state Hitter of the Year Savannah Ring, Samuel was one of several strong bats for Ramapo. Samuel posted a .516 batting average with 50 RBIs and 47 runs, mashing the ball to the tune of 28 extra-base hits and stealing 13 bases while drawing 18 walks.

Karlee Smith, Monmouth, Sr., UTILITY

One of the state’s best all-around players, Smith was an absolute force in the circle, at the plate and on the basepaths. The right-hander posted a 1.44 ERA and was one of the state’s leaders with 257 strikeouts in 136 1/3 innings. On offense, Smith finished with 42 hits and a .609 batting average. She scored 31 runs and stole 31 bases.

Jackie Masone, Hightstown, Sr., DH

Masone hit .500 with 36 hits, including 11 home runs and 18 total for extra bases. She led the Rams with 50 RBIs and tied for the team lead with 33 runs scored. Masone also walked 14 times - tops on Hightstown - and led the way on the basepaths with 10 steals.
