- The JV volleyball team fell to Morris Hills 2-0.
- The JV girls soccer team fell 4-1 to West Morris Central. WMC scored twice in the first five minutes and never looked back. Chatham's defense had all they could handle with a well-organized team. In the midfield, Lindsey Carson, Bridget Ballard, and Alex Routh did well creating a number of opportunities for Chatham, but could not take advantage. In the second half, already behind 3-0, Chatham finally capitalized on a WMC mistake in the box. Lindsey Carson spotted a penalty kick just out of reach of the keeper to put CHS on the board. Unfortunately, that was all the scoring Chatham could muster despite several really good opportunities by Becky Fabian and Kelsey Terry. Caroline Viscovich made seven saves during the contest.
