The undefeated Celtics are the nation's No. 1 team. Kevin Boyle's troops are playing at a fever-pitch level, led by Kentucky bound Michael Gilchrist (18.8 ppg).
2. Neptune Girls Basketball
This past week was huge for Jersey's top girls basketball team. The Scarlet Fliers looked impressive, defeating both Christ The King and Red Bank Catholic by double digits.
3. Jackson Memorial Wrestling
The 8-1 Jaguars held their own last week, knocking off highly touted Delbarton only to lose in a close match to powerful South Plainfield. Doug Hamann is the state's top ranked wrestler at 152 lbs.

The Green Wave just capped a three game Midwest road trip with a 3-2 win over Breck, one of Minnesota's top teams. Delbarton has now won 91 of its last 100 games.

The Cougars captured 10 of 11 events , hammering powerful Mountain Lakes, 112-58. Senior Greta Leberfinger led the way for undefeated Chatham.
