Two years ago, St. Thomas Aquinas pitched seven shutouts in a season, tying a playoff era Middlesex County record held by Piscataway’s 2004 team, one which had three future NFL players on its roster.
Some said the schedule wasn’t challenging, and the following year the Trojans were in a tougher division.
Fast forward one more year, and the 2023 Trojans may be on the same trajectory.

The Cougars fell to 2-2 with the loss.
