Add Williamstown, circa 2008-2009, to the list of the best softball teams in South Jersey history.

Not convinced? Consider that the Braves became the first South Jersey team to ever win consecutive state titles in either Group 4 or Group 3.

They won their second straight Group 4 crown with a 3-0 win over Union today at Toms River East.

Most impressive: Williamstown won two titles in two different ways. Last year, they followed dominating pitcher Rachael Matreale. This year, it was defense, clutch hitting and knack for the dramatic that produced another title.

"Pretty awesome," Williamstown pitcher Katie Trotter said today.
