The Wildwood Warriors are having an exhilarating season. The boys’ basketball team is in the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) Group I sectional finals. Their third upset has set the tone for their achievements during the playoffs.
Scott McCracken has been coaching the team for nine years.
“Coaching this team has been awesome,” McCracken said. “The support from this town is felt through the excitement.”
Saturday, March 2 was the team’s third upset when they won 57-53 over Glassboro. Senior Tyler Tomlin sealed the deal with his final free-throw.
The second upset was a 49-46 game they won over Pitman.
The opening round of playoffs was the first upset, when the varsity boys’ basketball team beat Salem. The team had previously lost two regular games to Salem.
“Senior Andrew Zielinski is our forward defense specialist and he played great,” McCracken said. “Senior Tyler Tomlin scored 27 points and senior Will Long is excellent on both ends of the court.”
The game had a solid four quarters and the final score was 62-55, allowing the Warriors to advance to the second round.
“Other key players are junior Max McGrath, who scored and rebounded,” McCracken said. “Sophomore Seamus Fines played well above his years and helped lead us to victory.”
