Word on the hockey field is that one of the co-captains of the Glen Ridge field hockey team has been suspended from playing two games — for stealing a jacket from a Whippany player in October. The unconfirmed report is that the Whippany coach spotted the jacket a few days later, on the hockey player, at the Glen Ridge football homecoming game.
We hear that reactions among parents of field hockey players range from disbelief that the alleged thief didn’t get a harsher punishment to the conviction that it was just an innocent prank and the girl must have planned to return it all along.
Glen Ridge high school principal Ken Rota and schools super Dan Fishbein have not returned our calls.
