2017 WOBM Christmas Classic Seeds & Brackets
Toms River North and Manchester have received top seeds for the 34th Annual WOBM Christmas Classic which runs from December 23-30 at the Toms River Athletic Arena (formerly the Pine Belt Arena). The seeds were determined during a meeting of all 32 head coaches held Sunday at The Villa, a private party facility associated with The Office Restaurant and Lounge in Toms River.
The North Mariners top the boy’s field, despite losing three starters from a 28-win team last season. Travis Holland and Holden Petrick return for North, who will face Class A South rival Jackson Memorial in the opening round on Saturday, December 23. Manasquan, Red Bank Catholic and defending champion Freehold Township round out the top four seeds.
Manchester is coming off a 24-6 season in which they won their first-ever state sectional title and with starters Kemari Reynolds, Dakota Adams and Serenity Anderson back it’s earned them the top spot and a first-round matchup against Sayreville. Defending champion Toms River North is the #2 seed, followed by Ewing and Donovan Catholic.
All 16 first round games will be played on Saturday, December 23.
