As a desperation three-point shot by a Burlington player fell short at the buzzer, hundreds of Gloucester High fans charged onto the court to celebrate their team's tough win last night.

The grassy Burlington City promenade came alive Saturday with rows of tents that shielded politicians, business representatives, and civic groups from the bright sunshine and the gentle breezes wafting from the Delaware. About 1,000 people milled around for Burlington Day, stopping to gawk at the Zumba dancers off the shoreline and the colorful potted plants that were offered for sale by a Marine Corps auxiliary. Many were drawn to a display of pictures, set up on easels, that illustrated what would be the riverfront promenade of the future, if a planned multimillion-dollar makeover is approved.

For more than 40 years, the promenade in Burlington City has been the site of an annual spring festival on the Delaware River on the third Saturday in May. But this year's event will go beyond tradition and provide a glimpse into what the grassy waterfront may look like in the future. A detailed architectural rendering of a new promenade - including a "sunset overlook" on the river and meandering paths dotted with sparkling pebbles - will be displayed inside a tent on Burlington Day. The event begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and ends at 6 p.m. Richard Newton and Sally Reynolds, landscape architects with the Olin Studios in Philadelphia, will discuss their vision and answer questions, said John Alexander, the city's spokesman.

The Moorestown baseball team scored 13 runs for senior pitcher Jared Gold on Tuesday. He only needed one. "You'll always take one of these," Gold said after pitching a crisp two-hitter in Moorestown's 13-0 victory at Burlington Township in a Burlington County League Liberty Division game. Junior Dane Fante cracked a three-run home run and seniors Colin Francisco and Zach Rausch each drove in three runs as Moorestown (10-8 overall, 4-3 league) broke out the bats in a big way on a warm day. The offensive production was in marked contrast to most of the Quakers' games with Gold on the mound.

Even after hitting home runs in the first two innings, Ryan Shinn wasn't going to swing for the fences. He ended up banging two balls off the one in centerfield in his next two at-bats, anyway. "I wasn't thinking [home run]," Shinn said after going 4 for 4 with six RBIs in Northern Burlington's 17-0 victory over Buena in a clash of Top 5 teams in The Inquirer's South Jersey rankings on Monday. "I just wanted to try to stay in the middle of the field, get a good pitch to hit. " Shinn's measured approach is reflective of his experience and determination to set a good example for his teammates, Northern Burlington coach Rich Doppler said.

It's not surprising that Brielle Morichetti was dealing Thursday. She's been doing it all season. The Burlington City senior stuck out 14, raising her season total to 107 in the Blue Devils' 1-0 victory over visiting Westampton Tech in a Burlington County League softball game. It was her fifth shutout in the team's first eight games. "Last season, she was overlooked by how young our team was. Her record didn't reflect how good she is," Burlington City coach Heather Whalin said.
