There was the 29-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. There was the 84-yard catch-and-run for another TD in the fourth. But Cedar Creek junior wide receiver/defensive back Ahmir Mitchell thinks his most athletic play of the weekend might have been his backflip before the entire student body during a pep rally in the gymnasium Friday afternoon. "That might have been the best," Mitchell said with a smile after Cedar Creek opened the season with a 41-0 home victory over Cedar Grove in a nonleague game on a steamy Saturday afternoon.

Think about some of the obvious issues that might arise for a program in its second varsity season: Team chemistry, building a fan base, winning games. The Cedar Creek girls' basketball team, just as it has done in the group playoffs, bulldozed through every one of those. It would be nice to say the team has created a blueprint for young programs to follow - in many ways, that might be true. But there are certain aspects of the Pirates, who will play for a Group 1 title at 6 p.m. Sunday against Whippany Park at Toms River's Pine Belt Arena, that aren't easily replicated.

Two days after securing the first sectional sports title of any kind in school history, the Cedar Creek girls' basketball team earned the right to play for a state championship, with a 54-42 win over Metuchen on Thursday in an NJSIAA State Group 1 semifinal at Williamstown. The Pirates (25-4), in just their second varsity season, made themselves at home by sailing out to a commanding 16-4 lead. Junior Kristine Miller and sophomore sisters Mercina and Mikila Stefanski each scored 13 points, but as usual it was the Cedar Creek defense that ruled the night.

Cedar Creek opened the season with an explosive performance from one of its playmakers - just not the one you might think. With star wide receiver and Michigan recruit Ahmir Mitchell mostly playing defense, Bo Melton erupted for three touchdowns in a 28-7 victory at Cedar Grove on Friday. Melton rushed for two touchdowns and caught a 76-yard strike from Jesse Milza. Milza also connected with Louie Pitale for a 53-yard touchdown.

Everything is new for Cedar Creek football. And the winning isn't getting old. "I've never been part of a winning program before," Cedar Creek quarterback Damon "Doo-wop" Mitchell said. "It's kind of surreal. But it shows how hard we've worked. " Mitchell, a Georgia Tech recruit, played a part in all five touchdowns Saturday as Cedar Creek beat Cinnaminson, 34-7, in the first round of the South Jersey Group 2 tournament. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Mitchell ran for three touchdowns and passed for two as second-seeded Cedar Creek improved to 9-0. Mitchell and senior running back Gary Melton Jr. led the way as Cedar Creek, a three-year-old school and second-year varsity program, won in imposing fashion in the school's first football playoff game.

Bo Melton believes his breakthrough came in the season opener, on his way to the end zone for one of his three touchdowns against Cedar Grove. "I was running away from guys and I started thinking, 'Oh, I could do this all the time,' " said Melton, a junior at Cedar Creek. Pirates coach Tim Watson believes Melton's big moment came before that, and not on the football field. "It was a basketball game," Watson said. "He gets a dunk off the tap and he had never dunked in a game before.

For most of the Willingboro girls' basketball team, the idea seemed a bit odd: Practice on a Sunday - and on the morning of a game day, no less. "That was the first time we've ever had practice before a game," junior center Gabby Bennett said. "But we didn't mind; we knew she couldn't run us too much. " Chimeras coach Marchelle Coleman used the time to detail a plan for Sunday night's matchup with a sharpshooting Cedar Creek squad in the quarterfinals of the South Jersey Invitational Basketball Tournament at Eastern.

The chants from the Cedar Creek bench, all directed toward forward Kristine Miller, were constant throughout the game: "Pump fake. Pump fake. " When Miller finally obliged her team, midway through the fourth quarter, the results were predictable. She faked once, and as she went up for a shot her 6-foot-3 counterpart was almost leapfrogging her. Miller somehow converted a layup while drawing the foul. It was symbolic of the matchup between Miller and Sacred Heart's Kennedy Johnson: a physical, aggressive showdown between two big, highly talented players.

Nothing came easy for the St. Joseph football team this season. The Wildcats lost their first game in convincing fashion to rival St. Augustine and they struggled all season to perform at maximum efficiency because of nagging knee ailments that limited senior stars Salaam Horne and A'Laam Horne. And in the first quarter of the state championship game, St. Joseph lost its top lineman and senior leader Derek Lomax to a dislocated ankle. In the end, St. Joseph finished a "transition" season with a 10-2 record, a seven-game winning streak and the program's seventh consecutive state title.

Jim Brady began his athletic career at St. Augustine Prep known more as a wrestler than a football player. He said he was attracted to the school by its reputation for strong academics and also by his relationship with former wrestling coach Joe Melchiore, a South Jersey legend in the sport. Brady still is a good wrestler. He's a lot more than that as a football player. "What struck me this season was just how dominant he was," St. Augustine coach Mark Reardon said of the team's middle linebacker.

Gary Melton knew his middle son was ready to take his football career to another level by his sleeping patterns last summer. Or perhaps by his non-sleeping patterns. "I asked him, 'Where do you want to go with this football thing?' " said Gary Melton, a former football and track star at Absegami High School who played three seasons of football for Rutgers University from 1989 to 1991. "He said he wanted to take it as far as he could. "So I said, 'OK, I get up at 5 every morning.
