The Willingboro boys scored an astounding 78 points on Day 1 of the Central Jersey Group 1 Championships at Howell.
Official team scoring wasn’t available Thursday night, but it looks like Middlesex is in second with 26 points and Burlington City one point back with 24.
Willingboro, which has bounced around various groups and in both South and Central Jersey, last won a Central Jersey sectional title in 2005, when it won its second straight CJ-3 title in Franklin Township. Willingboro won South Jersey Group 2 last year.
In all, Willingboro has won 18 sectional titles, 16 of them in South Jersey and the two in Central Jersey. That’s most of any South Jersey boys program.
