Karp will be a big part of West Essex’s hopes for success in the GNT. He already has complete-game victories over SHP and Bloomfield and also pitched very well vs. Millburn in the Knights' narrow defeat to the Millers.
After having to sit out all of last year, he’s back to full strength with his valuable right shoulder and arm.
Caldwell’s Docteroff pitched very well vs. SHP last spring in a GNT semifinal loss, and he has experience in a big spot as does Newark Academy’s Gibbons, who has been a top man in coach Frank Dasti's rotation for the Minutemen.
MKA’s Nolan, who recently bested Caldwell in SEC-Liberty Division action, is a very impressive, young southpaw for coach Ralph Pacifico’s Cougars, who surprised the field last year with an unexpected run as a 15th-seed into the GNT semis.
