Boys Varsity Basketball

“This season our Boys Varsity Bulldogs finished 15-12 overall. 15 wins is an impressive number considering the level of competition the team faced. Of the 24 teams that made the Bergen County Tournament, the Bulldogs matched up with 11 of them during the season. Six (6) of the Bulldogs’ opponents finished the ’23-24 season as League Champions, two (2) opponents finished as County Champions, and one (1) of our opponents was ranked as the #5 team in the entire country. To say the least, the Dwight-Englewood Bulldogs did not shy away from competition. In a season that saw the team qualify for the Bergen County Tournament, then the Bergen Invitational Tournament, and the NJSIAA State tournament, their greatest accomplishment was winning a state home game for the first time in five years against Montclair Kimberley Academy in front of a packed Myrna B. Sherman Gymnasium. The Bulldogs were led by a Second Team All-County season from Jackson Burke ’24 who averaged 17 points and 12 rebounds a game this season. The guard play from Christian Garrett ’24, River Smith ’24, and Addison Leak ’ 25 (all who stepped into larger roles from last season) steadied the team when games were challenging. Varsity newcomer, Leo Colosimo ’26, demonstrated his ability to score and defend against strong competition. This was a tremendous season for the Bulldogs and they look to build on this momentum going into a long off-season. Graduating five seniors will provide new opportunities for the next group of Bulldogs to step up.”
