This debate has raged on for decades: Who is the best athlete at a particular school?

The Press’ longtime high school sports reporter, Michael McGarry, attempts to answer that age-old debate. Leading into and throughout the scholastic season, McGarry will rank the top athletes from the 2000-01 school year on at high schools in Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and southern Ocean counties.

So far we have ranked Atlantic City, Pleasantville, Holy Spirit, Absegami, Saint Augustine Prep and Mainland.  More are scheduled over the next couple of weeks. 

These lists are not perfect — let us know who we forgot or overlooked.

At Noon Wednesday, McGarry and Sports Editor Nicholas Huba will host a Facebook Live chat about the list at So send your comment and questions.
