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.

It took one game for the new school-choice program to make an impact on Colonial Conference football. One game. What happens in a month? A season? A couple of years of "recruiting" - oops, I meant to say "attracting" - student-athletes to schools outside their home district? The summer buzz in the Colonial Conference was about Sterling, since the Silver Knights had "attracted" several student-athletes from other districts through its school-choice option, which is linked to its Junior Naval ROTC program.

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.

For Kevin Terifay and Zak Chiaradia, it wasn't about making great baseball plays. It was more basic than that. "All I asked these guys to do was to battle," Audubon coach Rich Horan said after his team stunned Gloucester Catholic, 1-0, Saturday in the first round of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. "When you battle, good things happen. " Terifay, a senior righthander, unfurled a gritty performance before a big crowd at Maple Shade. He displayed great command of his fastball and slider and made big pitches at big times in limiting the heavy-hitting Rams to five singles.

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.

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.

Eric Schorr has nothing against singles and doubles. He likes home runs. But for Audubon's senior centerfielder, there's something special about triples. "I love hitting triples," Schorr said. "You have to hit it in the right spot, you have to really get a hold of one, and you have to be able to run. " Nobody in South Jersey baseball history has ever hit more triples than Schorr. He has set the South Jersey record this season with 10. He hit one in each of Audubon's last three games.

With a trip to the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic semifinals on the line, the St. Augustine Prep baseball team mustered only three hits against Audubon on Saturday. Good thing they had Joe Gatto. Gatto tossed a five-hit shutout and struck out 11 to lead St. Augustine to a 2-0 win over Audubon in a quarterfinal at Deptford. Gatto also knocked in the Hermits' first run. He smashed an RBI double in the third inning to score Ryan Piscitelli, who had doubled ahead of Gatto. Piscitelli later brought in the Hermits' second run on a sacrifice fly in the fifth.

Not every game-winning rally is going to feature a crackling line drives and clutch hits. Sometimes, a team has to grind away and find a way. That's what Bishop Eustace senior first baseman Dan Marano did in the top of the seventh inning of Sunday's Ralph Shaw Classic championship baseball game against host Audubon. Behind by 0-2 in the count with the bases loaded and two outs, Marano battled back to work a walk to drive in the winning run in Bishop Eustace's 4-3 victory before a large crowd on a sunny afternoon at Hank Greenberg Field.

Hello there Liz, NFL Films commercial producer by day, music fan by night, walked into the Pontiac Grille on South Street to see her buddy Norm's band, Live Not On Evil. She worked her way to the front of the crowd, where she knew Norm's wife, Missi, would be. Missi smiled, and gestured to the man standing with her. "Dave and Liz, I want you to meet each other. " That was March 2004, when a bunch of Philly and Jersey metal and hair bands from the late '80s and early '90s were reassembling for a reunion, including Without Warning, the one Dave played drums for. Liz and Dave, a field manager for Allan A. Myers Contractors of Worchester, already vaguely knew of each other from the band reunion website.

The Audubon girls' basketball team has quietly elevated its program with some impressive individual and team achievements. And of course, one has led to the other. Before this season, the Green Wave hadn't had a 1,000-point scorer since Nicole Cannon in 2001. Then, in a span of less than two weeks, seniors Valerie Pineiro and Maddie Lord accomplished the feat. "It's pretty cool," said Pineiro, who will attend La Salle on a softball scholarship. Lord will cherish not only her milestone, but also how it was achieved.
