SAVING GRACE: Stuart Country Day School field hockey goalie Sam Johnson kicks the ball away in a game earlier this season. Last Saturday, senior star Johnson made 20 saves in a losing cause as 11th-seeded Stuart fell 1-0 at sixth-seeded Princeton High in the opening round of the Mercer County Tournament. The Tartans, who improved to 7-6-1 with a 1-0 win over South Hunterdon last Monday, start play in the state Prep B tourney this week where they are seeded third and slated to host No. 6 Newark Academy in a quarterfinal contest on October 18.
