kennedy johnson One of the reasons Wildwood Catholic High School brought in Steve DiPatri to coach its girls basketball program was to help draw some female athletes to the school.

That move has already paid dividends, even well before he has coached his first official game.

Kennedy Johnson, one of the top post players in South Jersey, has officially enrolled at Wildwood Catholic, the school’s athletic director, Sal Zuccarello, confirmed earlier this week.

Johnson, a rising senior, had played the last two seasons under DiPatri at Sacred Heart, which closed its doors for good due to declining enrollment when the 2012-13 scholastic year ended earlier this month.

Johnson, who played at Holy Spirit as a freshman before transferring to Sacred Heart, led the Cape-Atlantic League in scoring averaging last season as a junior, depositing 19.5 points per game. The 6-foot-2 power forward/center also averaged a CAL-best 14.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocks for a Sacred Heart team that finished 21-8 overall and reached the championship game of the CAL playoff tournament.

Peterson remained in California this week to participate in the Surfing America USA Championships at San Onofre State Beach.

The 2013 Ocean City High School baseball season ended in frustration. But it was quite a season.

Craig Mensinger’s team finished 23-4, a record for wins in one season. The Raiders won 20 straight, a school record that is also believed to be a Cape-Atlantic League record. They won the championship of the CAL’s National Conference for the first time since 1964, the first in any conference since 2000. And, for the third time in four years, they reached the South Jersey Group 3 championship game.

The Ocean City High School softball team won seven times this season for the first time since 2002. In fact, you have to go back to 1991 to find an OCHS softball team that won more than seven games. And the interesting thing is, John Bruno’s pitcher and his four best hitters will all be back next spring.

Bruno will lose three solid players from his lineup to graduation – Briana Graham, Holly Mariano and Jenna Cuomo. But a lot of talent returns.
