A roller coaster of a game was neatly summed up in its final 30 seconds. The Camden Catholic girls' basketball team made three trips to the foul line in that span, taking six shots and making five. And so it was: Brush aside the maddening play on both ends of the court, and only the most basic principle of the sport was left: Camden Catholic did the little things it needed to do to win. Rancocas Valley did not. "It was an amazing win. We came out confident and ready to play tonight - we're always ready for any fight," Camden Catholic sophomore guard Taiah Thornton said after her team's 52-48 upset of RV on Friday night at Eastern in a semifinal of the South Jersey Invitational Basketball Tournament.

From Paulsboro snapping Absegami's 103-match unbeaten streak to the state-championship celebration of Washington Township's John Price, there was nothing boring about South Jersey wrestling this season.

At February's team championships, Camden Catholic (Parochial A) and Paulsboro (Group 2) won state titles and Holy Cross (Parochial B)

Colan Miller waited his whole career for Camden Catholic to push into South Jersey baseball prominence.

ISSUE | GENDER BIAS Admit student On behalf of 250 LGBTQ alumni and allies of Camden Catholic High School, we are disappointed in the school's decision to rescind the admission of Mason Catrambone and are concerned for LGBTQ members of the student body (" A leap of faith: 'Hi, I'm Mason ,' " Sept. 11). The root of Catholicism is universal empathy; the decision falls short of this ideal and undermines the basic human dignity that undergirds Catholic social teaching.

DePaul Catholic's football team opened the season Sept. 9 with a loss to Paramus Catholic. It was a good game, a competitive game. Paramus Catholic won, 27-20. DePaul Catholic walked off the field with an 0-1 record and a bonanza of power points. "Rewarding a team for losing, what sense does that make?" Bud Kowal, the athletic director at Ewing High School and the president of the West Jersey Football League, wondered aloud in a sentiment shared by more than a few folks south of the Raritan River.

The West Jersey Football League's historic expansion to include every team in South Jersey didn't make for much change in terms of division alignments. Three divisions contain strictly teams from the Cape-Atlantic League. Two divisions contain strictly teams from the Colonial Conference. There was some movement among existing WJFL teams to different divisions - Kingsway and Hammonton to the American; Eastern, Paul VI, and Cherry Hill East to the National; Camden and Camden Catholic to the Constitution, among other changes - but nothing too dramatic.

An online petition to support a 14-year-old who was initially accepted to Camden Catholic High School - and then rejected once officials there learned he is transgender - has collected more than 800 signatures. "Madelyn Catrambone was accepted to Camden Catholic High School last February, but when Camden Catholic learned that since then Catrambone goes by Mason and identifies as male, the school refused to accept him for who he is," the petition on change.org says. "I ask that students, faculty, alumni, and anyone else who doesn't support Camden Catholic's decision, sign this and show that you stand with Mason.

Their coach says they are "a team without stars" that has captured the magic in the state tournament. But something else has made a major difference in St. Augustine Prep's improbable run to the Non-Public South A title in baseball: Billy Chillari's left elbow has stopped hurting. Chillari, a senior lefthander, was the winning pitcher for the second time as St. Augustine beat a higher-seeded team for the third game in a row to capture the program's first sectional title since 2011.

Playing state tournament games as a senior, that's something special. Playing state tournament games as a recent graduate, that's even better. "There's no better feeling," Camden Catholic's Nolan Gerold said. "It's awesome. " It wouldn't be technically correct to refer to Gerold as a "senior. " He and the rest of his classmates graduated Sunday. They're alumni. That's one of the quirky things about student-athletes from non-public schools who are part of teams that advance deep in the state tournament in spring sports: They often compete after graduation, creating a unique environment for the final games of their careers.

One batter after Kris Morgenweck was on the ground, being tended to by a trainer, Jack Parkinson was airborne. The St. Augustine shortstop took a page out Ozzie Smith's book, launching himself upward for an acrobatic catch. Morgenweck smiled. Battling through a nagging ankle injury, he said, is easier when your teammates have your back. "That's what keeps you in games," Morgenweck said after tossing a three-hit shutout - a 5-0 win over Camden Catholic - in the opening round of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic Saturday at Maple Shade.
