To celebrate the recent achievements of athletic teams from Camden High and Woodrow Wilson High, the Board of Commissioners joined Camden City Mayor Victor Carstarphen on Tuesday to hold a championship parade and community celebration.
The celebration comes after the Woodrow Wilson High School’s boys varsity basketball team won the Group 3 state championship, the varsity football team sustained the title of Group 3 champions for its third consecutive year and the Camden High boys varsity basketball team won the Group 2 state championship and finished as runner-up in the tournament of champions. The Camden High School Girls indoor track team are also celebrating a state championship as well and will be part of the parade.
“These young men and women are truly a force to be reckoned with on the basketball court and the football field,” Commissioner Al Dyer said. “They gave it their all this past season, which clearly paid off and they deserve to be celebrated for their performances. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Camden City community to come together and honor these athletes who have bright futures ahead of them.”
A community celebration was held at Wiggins Waterfront Park complete with free food, refreshments and games. The Camden County Health Department also administered COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
