The theatrics always feel a tad amped up during wrestling matches at Seneca. The lights are turned off all around the perimeter of the Golden Eagles' gym. The only ones kept on are the few that shine down on the mat like a spotlight. On Friday night, Audubon wrestler Sean Hanson stepped into that spotlight and his expression shifted from focused athlete to something more reminiscent of a snarling bull. Forty-nine seconds later, the referee was raising Hanson's hand in victory, and momentum never turned back in Seneca's favor as Audubon went on to a 41-27 victory.

Dave Ricci, the boys' basketball coach the last two seasons at Cinnaminson, has been named the coach at Audubon. The hiring of Ricci, a 28-year-old graduate of Cherry Hill East, was approved at last night's school board meeting. He replaces Casey Clements, who resigned after last season. A physical education teacher at Audubon, Ricci assisted Clements for one season before taking over at Cinnaminson. In two seasons, he guided the Pirates to a 21-29 record. Cinnaminson reached the playoffs in his first season and earned a first-round win over Woodstown.

Yesterday's baseball game between Audubon and Sterling was delayed 40 minutes because of a scheduling mix-up involving the umpires. But that didn't throw off Ryan Smulktis' timing. After all, the Audubon junior righthander had waited 30 days to play his first game, so another 40 minutes wasn't going to matter. Smulktis shrugged off the delay by pitching a five-hitter and Audubon crushed Sterling, 14-1, in a Colonial Conference game. Audubon, which entered the week uncertain of qualifying for the Group 2 playoffs, won its third straight game and improved to 7-5 overall and 7-3 in the Colonial.

Two potential double-play balls told the story of yesterday's South Jersey Group 2 baseball semifinal between Gateway and Audubon. One allowed Audubon to escape a no-out, bases-loaded jam in the first inning unscathed. Another opened the floodgates for a six-run Audubon outburst in the second. After dodging an early bullet, the Green Wave parlayed hot hitting and shoddy Gateway defense into a 13-3 five-inning knockout of the Gators. Audubon, The Inquirer's No. 3 team in South Jersey, advanced to Friday's South Jersey group final against Pennsville at Cherry Hill East.

These are special times for the Audubon baseball program. The players still have big dreams, including taking that final ride through town. This is a town whose baseball tradition takes a backseat to nothing, a town where the players over the years have enjoyed the fire-truck ride that is awarded to any state-championship team. Audubon is one victory from taking that trip. The Green Wave (21-5) will meet West Essex (27-3) in the state Group 2 final at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Toms River South.

The Collingswood players clutched one another and unsuccessfully fought back tears. Coach Nancy O'Neill shared another cry with her players in the locker room. She, like the majority of her starters, including injured guard Kelly Feeney, were helpless to stop a fourth-quarter meltdown last night that ended their season. Saddled with foul trouble throughout the second half, Collingswood regulars watched in disbelief as Leslie Snock carried 11th-seeded Audubon into the second round of the South Jersey Group 2 girls' basketball playoffs with a 63-62 overtime victory.

Good teams manage to find a way to win, even when they try to give the victory away. That's what Audubon did yesterday. The visiting Green Wave used 11 hits to overcome some shoddy fielding and baserunning blunders as it beat previously undefeated Haddon Heights, 4-2, in a Colonial Conference softball game. Audubon (5-1), the defending conference champion, is still trying to find its title form. Yesterday, the hitting started to come together. Leadoff hitter Kourtney Kalbach collected three hits, including an RBI single.

In a decision applauded by residents, the Audubon commissioners announced Tuesday night that they were abandoning plans to buy church-owned property to house a new municipal building. The commission informed residents in February that the borough was interested in purchasing a one-story brick building on Edgewood Avenue owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Residents along Edgewood Avenue complained to borough officials that their neighborhood already was plagued with traffic and parking woes.
