After losing four seniors, including two 1,000 point scorers in Shayne Simon and Brendan Thiele, the St. Peter’s Prep basketball team knew it would be a tough task to compete the same way it did a year before. However, the team rose to the occasion and did just that by battling with teams on the county and state level.
The Marauders wrapped up its season in the quarterfinal round of the NJSIAA Non-Public A tournament, finishing with a 16-11 overall record and an 11-3 division record. The team work hard throughout the year and got some key victories, including a 45-44 victory over county rival Hudson Catholic.
Freshman Mark Armstrong led the charge for the Marauders, finishing with 414 points, 71 rebounds and 31 steals while Will White and Jack Petit, the only two returning starters, also played key roles this season. White finished with 195 points, 57 rebounds and 50 assists while Petit had 140 points, 36 rebounds and 29 assists. The squad graduates three seniors, which leaves a big core group to work with for next year.
