A Fierce Forecast

by Matt Cosentino

The weather outside may be frightful, but South Jersey's high school athletes are just starting to heat up.

When most South Jersey residents look back on the winter of 2014, clearing snow off the car and shoveling the driveway are the images that immediately come to mind. Unfortunately, it looks like the region might be in store for another rough season in the months ahead.

But for high school sports fans in the area, there are plenty of reasons to look forward to this time of year. For starters, there are the local teams that always seem to find success year in and year out—programs like Gloucester Catholic girls basketball, Moorestown boys swimming and Camden Catholic wrestling.

Then there are the teams that go on magical rides and build memories that will last long after graduation. The Cherry Hill East boys basketball team and Clearview wrestling team claiming historic championships last year certainly fall into this category.

Who are the players and teams that will catch lightning in a bottle this year? While we can’t predict the future, we can give you an indication of what to look for in boys and girls basketball, wrestling and boys and girls swimming. In our annual winter sports preview, Suburban Family highlights some of the established stars and up-and-comers in these sports at 17 local high schools: Bishop Eustace, Camden Catholic, Cherokee, Cherry Hill East, Cherry Hill West, Clearview, Eastern, Gloucester Catholic, Haddonfield, Kingsway, Lenape, Moorestown, Moores­town Friends, Paul VI, Seneca, Shawnee and Washington Township.
