Wagner Repeats as JSZ’s Mister Hoop Zone

Camden guard DJ Wagner is a two-time winner of Jersey Sports Zone’s Mister Hoop Zone award. The number one ranked recruit in the nation for the class of 2023 helped “The High” to a Group 2 state championship. He was on 35 first-place ballots in JSZ’s voting, done by high school head coaches and media members around the state. Roselle Catholic’s Simeon Wilcher, who led Roselle Catholic to a Tournament of Champions overtime win against Camden finished in second picking up 22 first-place votes. In the midst of all the attention not only in our state but across the nation, Wagner continues to be humble and has a team-first mentality. JSZ’s Mike Frankel profiles our two-time Mr. Hoop Zone winner:

SJV’s St. Rose Wins 2022 Miss Hoop Zone in Dominating Fashion

St. John Vianney guard Madison St. Rose was a near-unanimous selection to win Jersey Sports Zone’s 2022 Miss Hoop Zone. The Princeton-bound senior was the leader of one of the best teams in New Jersey high school history going 32-1, winning the final Tournament of Champions. While St. Rose was snubbed from national all-star games, the coaches and media in New Jersey have given her proper due as one of the very best from our state to play the game. JSZ’s Rich Chrampanis profiles the latest great athlete to join the Miss Hoop Zone list:
