The Rancocas Valley girls' basketball program had three reasons to celebrate after Thursday's Burlington County League Liberty Division game at Moorestown.

In routing the Quakers, 60-33, the top-ranked Red Devils presented head coach Anthony Corrado with his 200th victory and saw senior swing guard Natalya Lee surpass 1,000 career points.

Lee, considered one of the area's top defenders, scored 12 to boost her total to 1,007.

"It was nice to see Natalya get her milestone on the same day," Corrado said.

Brianna Logan had a game-high 16 points for Rancocas Valley.

Cape-Atlantic. Ocean City clinched at least a share of the National Conference crown, knocking Middle Township out of first place with a 35-31 come-from-behind home win.

Tri-County. Williamstown and Delsea finished in a tie atop the Royal Division.

Taylor Walker tossed in 21 points as Williamstown clipped visiting Clearview, 42-34, while host Delsea defeated Highland, 50-30, as Dominique Hassinger's 11 points paced a balanced attack.

Gloucester clinched at least a share of the Classic Division title, getting 13 points apiece from Madison McClintock and Kathleen Velez in a 42-31 victory at Pitman.

South Jersey Invitational. Micahya Owens and Kara Cezar combined for 36 points as second-ranked Willingboro earned a quarterfinal berth by blasting visiting West Deptford, 69-19.

Taylor Umbrell knocked down three three-pointers in scoring 17, and Crystal Cleveland battled inside for 14 points and eight rebounds to pace third-ranked Delran over Kingsway, 57-32.

Boys' Basketball

Camden Catholic's Kyle Green scored 19, including his 1,000th point, but the Irish faltered late in falling, 63-43, at third-ranked Paul VI.

Roosevelt Cubbage (15 points) and Matt Risse (12) combined for 18 points in the fourth quarter to help the Eagles put away the Olympic Conference game.

Burlington County. Charles Cooke and Brandon Taylor scored 16 apiece in Trenton Catholic's 59-44 victory at Westampton Tech, giving the Iron Mikes the Liberty Division title.

Florence can finish no worse than tied for first in the Freedom Division, after the host Flashes pounded Palmyra, 66-43, behind the scoring of Quintin Harris (19 points) and Cornell Miller (18).

Tri-County. Daron Curry scored 23 and host Deptford nailed down the Diamond Division crown by dispatching Woodstown, 64-36.

Cedric Elleby scored 22 for Royal Division champion Delsea, which completed its 9-1 run against divisional foes with a 57-39 win at Highland.

Colonial. Jake Sikkema scored 17, and Mike Lacatena totaled 15 points, nine rebounds, five steals, and three blocks as host Haddonfield raced past Overbrook, 68-42, to claim at least a share of the Liberty Division title.
