Two more from WCHS to play in state all-star game


Two more Wildwood Catholic High School basketball players have been selected to play in the North-South senior all-star game in March.

Taj Thweatt and Jahlil White, a pair of Division I college signees are part of the South roster for the boys game scheduled for March 21 at Rider University.

Their classmate, Gabby Turco, has been selected to play in the girls game.

Thweatt, a 6-8 forward, is averaging 17.4 points per game and is one of the top dunkers and post defenders in the state. He signed with West Virginia in the fall.

White, a 6-6 guard/forward, is averaging 16.7 points per outing. He signed with Temple in the fall.

Thweatt and White lead a Crusader team that is one of the best in the state. Although the team recently fell out of the state Top 20 after a recent three-game losing streak, Wildwood Catholic is still considered one of the most dangerous teams in the region. The Crusaders take a record of 16-6 into Sunday’s game against Camden at Neumann University at 5 p.m. Camden is ranked No. 1 in the state. The game is set to air live on 98.7 The Coast radio.

Thweatt and White are the only Cape-Atlantic League players selected to participate in the boys North-South game.
