As the games get bigger, Jason Dowiak's eyes become wider. The soccer goal, which often shrinks to the size of a pea to many offensive players - especially during the postseason - looks as big as a swimming pool to the Moorestown senior. At least that's how it seems. For Dowiak, a 5-foot-7, 135-pound forward, scoring in critical games has happened too many times to be coincidence. He simply thrives in pressure-packed situations. Take last season, when Moorestown won the Group 2 state title.

They came. They saw. They made a reservation for next season. Lenape lost, 4-1, to Westfield yesterday in the team tennis Group 4 state semifinals at Mercer County Park. But with six of their top seven players scheduled to return, including dynamic No.1 singles Nikola Kocovic, the Indians hope to make another visit next season - with a different result. "It was a great experience for our kids to see what it takes to win a state title," Lenape coach Tony Guerrera said.

At the top of the crease, four Moorestown players stood shoulder to shoulder, waiting for their teammate Bridget Callahan. Callahan curled around and her teammates split, two to the right, two to the left, creating a gap wide enough for only one. Callahan squeezed past as if slipping, just in time, through the doors of a closing elevator. She darted to the goal, took a pass from Annie McGinley, and scored. Callahan's first-half goal capped a decisive run by top-seeded Moorestown (23-1)

After facing three straight Colonial Conference opponents in the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 2 girls' basketball playoffs, Haddonfield met a conference clone in a state semifinal last night. So it knew exactly what to do. Haddonfield outlasted Rumson-Fair Haven, 36-33, in a slow-paced game last night at Southern Regional, and advanced to Sunday's title game. Haddonfield will meet Chatham at Toms River North at 6 p.m. Chatham advanced with a 70-61 victory over Jefferson last night.

It was Thomas Pennock Medill's first visit to his ancestors' home, Primitive Hall in West Grove, last Sunday. "Before today I never met anyone with my name," said the Lancaster resident, who attended a fund-raising party to benefit the 1738 manor home built by Joseph Pennock. "I read about them in literature. That was all. " The visit was "delightful for me and makes me feel connected in a significant way," said Medill, who came with Dorothy and Daniel Medill of Dover, Pa., and their granddaughter, Lydia, from Elliotsburg in Perry County.

The change was made about midway through the season: Julie Sobolewski, a 5-foot-10 senior who began the season at small forward, was moved to point guard. And the move catapulted Haddonfield to a state girls' basketball title. Sobolewski, an outstanding athlete who was an Inquirer second-team all-South Jersey defender in soccer, adapted quickly to the point-guard position. The change enabled the Haddonfield's previous point guard, sophomore Ryanne Donnellon, to move to shooting guard, where she became more of a scoring threat.

Just because the prestigious McDonald's Championship has moved from White Manor Country Club, in Malvern, to DuPont Country Club, LPGA commissioner John Laupheimer, a native of Philadelphia, does not believe the Southeastern Pennsylvania area has to feel a sense of loss. "We're still here," said Laupheimer, who was at DuPont yesterday to help formally introduce the event's new home for the next three years. "We'd like to think of this as a tournament for metropolitan Philadelphia, as well as the Wilmington area.
