This team has been together since 5th grade, finishing first place in the South Jersey League the past 3 years and winning the Championship in Cape Atlantic & South Jersey Leagues this year. With an impressive season record of total wins home and away for 2005/06 at 35-1.
Loosing only one game to the second ranked team Mt. Laurel at there home court due to team players missing because of sickness, but still gave them a battle.
Voted by the Cape Atlantic League, WTP "A" 8th Grade 2005/06 Travel Basketball Team, one of the best 3 teams ever to come through the league. With impressive victories over high school freshman and AAU teams this year. The league was glad to see us leave the league.
Also by the league commendations to head Coach Ernie Dorazio and the coaching staff Terry Cadogan and John Marcucci on a well disciplined, talented and dedicated basketball team, destined to succeed at the High School level.
Not to mention Head Coach of the WTPHS Basketball Team Bob Byatt with a special interest in this team as upcoming freshmen and the boys staying together for an interesting High School basketball team.
Spring and summer AAU and possible National Qualifier Tournaments coming up should be an interesting building process for head coach Ernie Dorazio and the coaching staff. Goals are trying to build the individual skills and talent of the boys, looking forward to playing basketball at the high school level next season.
With that being said, check our Web Site listed above to watch the teams' progress and achievements.
