Wildwood Catholic High School’s boys and girls basketball teams each beat Cape May Tech in Cape-Atlantic United Conference games Thursday evening.
Crusader junior Taj Thweatt was honored ahead of the boys game in North Wildwood for scoring his 1,000th career point in the team’s previous game, a victory over Plainfield in a showcase event at Marist High School on Sunday.
Thweatt then went out and scored 16 points against the Hawks. He was one of three Wildwood Catholic players in double figures in their team’s 71-44 victory. Jacob Hopping had a team-high 20 points and Jahlil White added 18 points. Josh Wright poured in 32 points in the loss for Cape May Tech (9-8).
Wildwood Catholic (17-1) clinched at least a share of the Cape-Atlantic United Division title with the win. The Crusaders can clinch the title outright with a win over Buena early next week.
In the girls game at Cape May Tech, Gabby Turco (15), Marianna Papazoglou (12) and Alyia Gray-Rivera (10) all reached double figures in scoring as the Crusaders cruised to a 60-36 win. Wildwood Catholic (15-3) led 33-4 at the half.
Liza Pellini scored 14 points for Cape May Tech (5-12).
