Wildwood Catholic head boys basketball coach Dave DeWeese has had a lot of great players come through the door of the little school located at 1500 Central Avenue in North Wildwood.

Tonight he used some of that talent to help him earn his 200th career win by knocking off Mainland 61-53 on Wednesday night in North Wildwood.

DeWeese is now in his 13th season as the Crusaders head coach after serving as an assistant on the Wildwood Catholic bench..

"I love it its a passion for me," DeWeese told Brian Cuniff of ShoreNewsToday after the game.  "I was always hopeful that I would be around for awhile, this is my thirteenth year here, I've been doing it a long time, but it's been a joy to be doing it here a Wildwood Catholic."

Many thought the Crusaders would take a step back after winning the overall Cape Atlantic League title in 2014.  After losing virtually its entire starting line-up, which included CAL player of the year Jordan Robertson, Wildwood Catholic has had to rely on a lot of players who didn't have a lot of varsity experience to win games - and win games they have.

The Crusaders are 12-3 and on top of the Untied Conference.

DeWeese mentioned his past players and coaches and thanked them for their part in helping him get to what he called a milestone.
