The Pooley Trophy, which is a bust of a lacrosse player on the move, is named after David Pooley who served as an administrator at both schools. He was instrumental in starting the lacrosse programs at Mendham and West Morris and also organizing the Morris County Tournament which began in 1988. Last year, West Morris gained possession of the trophy with a 12-5 victory.

Mendham led the game most of the way. The Minutemen took a 5-2 first-quarter lead and turned it into an 8-5 halftime advantage. Mendham pulled away with three consecutive third-quarter goals.
