Egg Harbor Township pitcher Jordan Wisser entered the baseball game in a big spot. With his team up by three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Wisser inherited a two-out, bases-loaded situation against host Cherokee on Saturday. After allowing a two-run single and a walk, Wisser forced a groundout to get the save and give Egg Harbor a 3-2 nonleague win. Teammate Todd Henry knocked in two runs on a two-out triple in the fifth inning, and that proved to be the difference.

Since his freshman year, Trevor Osler has been hearing about the Cherokee boys' lacrosse team's Class of 2015, the class just behind his. Those juniors are lauded for their depth, their talent, their chemistry . . . The praise is well-deserved, Osler conceded, but some perspective is in order: "I feel like I have to point out," the senior attack said with a grin, "when we were sophomores and they were freshmen, our class won the freshmen-sophomore game....

There was no ceremony before or after the game. Instead, there were little moments that spoke volumes. Before the game, players braided her hair, talked with her, laughed with her - cherished the moments spent with a teammate who inspires them every day. During the game, they turned to her and smiled or gave her thumbs up as they ran to the sideline. This was the first time Katie Bednarek had been on the same field with her Cherokee girls' lacrosse teammates since the final game of last season, the first time since Bednarek learned she had brain cancer.

Teamwork for most lacrosse athletes this season will involve the correct slides on defense and the extra pass on offense, plus the standard stuff about supporting each other through the season's highs and lows. It's far more than that for the Cherokee girls. The Chiefs are learning the hard way that all that business they've been hearing all these years about sticking together and rallying around each other doesn't have anything to do with games. It's about life. Cherokee has dedicated this season to senior Katie Bednarek, a four-year member of the program who has brain cancer.

When it was over, they brought out a ladder so Cherry Hill East's players could climb the rungs and cut down the nets. But the Cougars didn't need the boost. The athletes and several hundred of their red-clad closest friends were floating on air after the South Jersey Group 4 boys' basketball final Tuesday. Playing before a capacity crowd that featured South Jersey's largest and loudest student section, Cherry Hill East beat Cherokee, 52-41, to capture the first sectional title in the history of the program.

It was a senior's shot. Late in a suddenly close game, Cherokee's Kyle Kahriger found himself open on the left wing after taking a sharp pass from teammate Jake Powell. Kahriger didn't hesitate. He didn't miss, either. Kahriger's three-pointer boosted Cherokee's lead to six points, blunted Lenape's momentum, and paved the way for the host Chiefs to cruise to a 55-45 victory in the South Jersey Group 4 boys' basketball quarterfinals Thursday night. "I could see in his eyes at the beginning of the game that he wouldn't be afraid to take that shot," Cherokee coach Matt Shultz said.

Once Cherokee trailed by 12 points in the first quarter, the Chiefs knew everyone had to pitch in if they were going to rally past Cherry Hill East on Tuesday afternoon.

Ben Handel led Cherokee with 11 points, and Kevin Wixted scored 10. Paul Belamy and Kyle Kahriger each contributed eight. Colonial Conference.
