The Woodbury High School girls basketball team, one of the state’s top contenders for the Group 1 championship, has been suspended from this year’s NJSIAA tournament after seven players were suspended for leaving the bench during an altercation with fans last week, the sports principal Dan Howie said.

The incident occurred in Delran during the South Jersey Invitational basketball tournament on January 18. The Thundering Herd was up by more than 20 points with less than five minutes to play when the fans started arguing, Howey said. Spectators were escorted from the concourse, but seven Woodbury players left the sideline.

At that point, the game was called a 68-47 Thundering Herd victory.

“No fighting or anything like that,” Howie said, “but the NJSIAA has seven athletes coming off the bench.”
