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.

Haddonfield sophomore Emma Carpenter picked an ideal time for a personal best in the 200-yard individual medley. Carpenter won the event in 2 minutes, 11.07 seconds during Saturday's 98-72 win over Chatham in the state Public B championship. "I dropped a little over a second on that," Carpenter said. Something else was also dropped - her name. At the scorer's table, the winner was listed as her teammate Allison Walker. So in a number of outlets (including The Inquirer)

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)

All season, the Haddonfield boys' basketball team thrived on its outside shooting. Yesterday, in the fourth quarter of the NJSIAA Group 2 state final at the Rutgers Athletic Center, it died by it. Shooting 1 for 15 from the floor and scoring just two points in the final quarter, Haddonfield lost to Chatham, 48-42, before a roaring crowd estimated at 7,000. Haddonfield (26-5) was trying to become the first team in the 75-year history of the Group 2 tournament to win four consecutive state titles.

South Jersey's hottest boys' basketball teams - Haddonfield and Shawnee - will try to bring home their respective NJSIAA state championships today and tonight at the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway. Shawnee has 23 consecutive victories, while Haddonfield has 13. Haddonfield is aiming for its fourth straight Group 2 state title and sixth overall state crown, including Group 1 championships in 1973 and 1989. Shawnee, a dominant program since the early 1990s, is trying to capture its fifth state championship and first in Group 3. The Renegades won Group 4 crowns in 2001, 1996, 1995 and 1992.

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.

The first two minutes of last night's NJSIAA Group 2 state title game would have sent most teams into a panic. Instead of freezing after falling behind by 7-0, the Haddonfield girls' basketball team caught fire. By maintaining their poise and playing stingy defense, the Bulldogs topped Chatham, 48-35, for their sixth state title at the Ritacco Center. Haddonfield attributed Chatham's quick start to adrenaline, then set about the task of coming back. "I've been at this so long, you know it's an adrenaline rush," Haddonfield coach Terry Mancini said.
