Newark East Side has enjoyed success on the basketball court this decade. They have been present in the Tournament of Champions Tournament while being contenders to win a state sectional title every season. Heading into this season, Newark East Side will look to their youth to continue the success.
The Red Raiders found themselves in two straight Tournament of Champions in 2013 and 2014. In 2014, they made a run to the final game where they suffered a two point loss to Karl Anthony-Towns, Marques Townes, Wade Baldwin, and the St. Joe’s Metuchen Falcons. Led by Anas Amos, Newark East Side won the Group 4 Championship in 2018-2019 and returned to the T.O.C’s. They lost in the semifinals to Bergen Catholic but the run is not over.
