The Quakers won ten (X) straight Tournament of Champions titles from 2000-2009 and 19 overall since the tournament started in 1976.
Moorestown played in 12 straight NJ State TOC title games, a feat never accomplished in any sport. MGLAX has played in 15 of the last 16 TOCs, winning 14. **The TOC winner is the true state champion regardless of school size.

Preceeding 2003, the NJ State Champion won every game regardless of school size and seedings were done purely by record. All have been acknowleded as the TOC Champion.
From 2000 to present, Moorestown is 331-14.
