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.

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.

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.

The Rancocas Valley football team faces a new challenge this weekend: A home game. "I actually don't mind road games," Rancocas Valley coach Dan Haussman said. "I think it keeps us regimented because there's less free time. You're more structured. "With home games, you have a little more time, and I think you have to be a little more aware of the possibility of distractions.
