Farmer Breaks Record

Rutgers' signee Anthony Farmer has had a stellar season for St. Augustine Prep. Though the Hermits lost last night, at the hands of Haddonfield, there was a bright spot to the gloomy ending.

The Cherry Hill East Invitational tournament got underway Saturday in south Jersey, featuring some of the top teams from the southern parts of the Garden State.

The marquee matchup pitted No. 1 Haddonfield against No. 4 St. Augustine.

The game did not live up to expectations as Haddonfield raced off to a quick start by scoring the first 9 points of the game and coasted to a 78-53 victory.

However, the lone Hermit bright spot was one for the history books. Future Rutgers point guard Anthony Farmer, etched his name in St. Augustine Prep lore by becoming the program's all-time leading scorer with 1,605 points.

"It's a great accomplishment," stated Farmer.

However, due to the game's outcome and the Hermits' recent slide, correcting the team's problems are the main focus right now.

"Hopefully, we'll improve. We're struggling defensively right now and that's what we have to improve. A good defense will lead to a good offense an that's what we'll focus on."

The pending solution to the Hermits' problems will come by way of Buena, St. Augustine's next opponent, this upcoming Tuesday. In the only previous contest between the two teams this year, St. Augustine defeated Buena 79-51.
