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.

In a game in which the offenses were operating at will, a defensive play was the difference. Zach Pergola's 66-yard return of a fumble broke a tie with 5 minutes, 43 seconds remaining and sent Audubon to a 33-27 win over host Haddon Heights on Saturday in a highly entertaining Colonial Conference football matchup. Pergola, a 6-foot, 175-pound junior, scored on both sides of the ball, also adding a 21-yard touchdown reception. "This was the best game I've ever had and the best one I've been involved in," Pergola said.

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.

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.

In 1970, while a senior at Audubon (N.J.) High School, Paul F. Price Sr. became a member of the Defender Fire Company in Audubon. After he had graduated and had become a customer service agent for an airline at Philadelphia International Airport, he was still ready in his off hours to respond to calls to Defender, a volunteer company, which closed in 1976. "He just loved the camaraderie of the people in the station," said George Stone, who had known Mr. Price since he first joined Defender.

On a summer night in 1955, Carmine Calzonetti walked around the corner from his family's home on Washington Terrace in Audubon to the baseball field next to the basketball courts and across the street from the high school. He wanted to see this pitcher from Delaware Township Little League. "I knew his name," Calzonetti said. "He was in the paper all the time for throwing no-hitters. " The pitcher was Billy Hunter. Later that summer, he would lead Delaware Township, which soon would be renamed Cherry Hill, to the first of two consecutive appearances in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. Flash forward 61 years.

Drew Wilden is a powerful lefthander with darting fastball and a sharp curve. Derek Wakeley is a clever righthander with a tailing fastball and a slick slider. Together, they are a formidable combination on the mound for the West Deptford High School baseball team. For the second postseason game in a row, Wilden and Wakeley split the workload and led the Eagles to victory in the South Jersey Group 2 tournament. Wilden and Wakeley combined on a three-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts Tuesday as West Deptford beat visiting Audubon, 8-0, in the sectional semifinals on a hot, sunny afternoon at Union Field.

Ahhh, summer at the Jersey Shore. The sun. The surf. The sandwich-snatching seagulls. So many memories for Philadelphia-area families that have roots in this sand-in-more-places-than-you- want-it tradition. For Danielle Pizza (pronounced pee-zah ), one holds particular significance. It was August 2012. Pizza, 37, and her husband, Joe, of Audubon, Montgomery County, had spent the day on the beach in Ocean City, with their two children, age 3 and 1, at the time. (They now have three.)

Craig E. Burgess - patriot, poet, proud Audubon resident - has always lived in the bungalow his parents bought in 1938. But on 41 occasions, he's happily left the little house on Washington Terrace behind and gone off to Hawaii. The retired teacher is showcasing his beloved vacation destination in a new book, A Fleeting Glimpse of Paradise - Photographic and Poetic Images of the Hawaiian Islands (Dorrance Publishing). A paean to the Hawaiians whom the gregarious author, prolific public speaker, and lifelong bachelor has embraced, and vice versa, the heartfelt book is something of a family album.

Donald A. Borden, a longtime Camden County schoolteacher and administrator, will inherit a campus in motion when he becomes Camden County College's president this summer. Like other community colleges, the school has resorted to layoffs and budget crunches to respond to enrollment and revenue declines. The college has about 100 fewer jobs than two years ago, including six people laid off just a few weeks ago at Borden's recommendation. "I've seen it in so many places, when you're cutting and you're cutting, and the money's going down, and your student body's going down - you just fall into this malaise," Borden said.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Tone it down With today's technology, I can sit in my easy chair and mute anything that may be objectionable to my wife or me. While I watched Saturday night's fight/debate, I wondered: Why can't the moderator have switches to shut off the candidates' microphones? These shouting matches are getting to be too much to stomach. Technology also allows us to switch channels - what a blessing. |Tom Borai, Audubon, yourout3@verizon.net

Frank Rago remembers the score of his first victory as the Clayton High School boys' basketball coach. "41-36," Rago said. That's a typical halftime score for Clayton these days, and if the Clippers are the team with 36, Rago is OK with that. There are still 16 more minutes to shoot three-pointers, fastbreak, shoot three-pointers, double-team the ball at every chance, substitute in waves, and shoot three-pointers. Rago doesn't pretend to have instituted a winning strategy at the little school in Gloucester County.
