A sea of green overflows the Pascack Valley new gymnasium with the administration, fans, former players, parents, and teachers, smiling for a picture with Jeff Jasper, the PV Girls Basketball team coach. After 45 years of instructing on the sidelines, Jasper has become the first girls basketball coach in New Jersey to reach 1,000 career wins — a lasting legacy for PV and a historic moment for the state.

On Thursday, Jan. 11, the PV Girls Basketball Team won 73-25 against Northern Highlands. The team is now 10-0 this season.
