A Clearview High girls' basketball player was struck by a female spectator after a Tri-County Conference game at nearby Kingsway on Tuesday night and was briefly hospitalized, Clearview superintendent Pat Carroll confirmed yesterday. The student, senior guard Meryl Settar, was transported to the hospital by an ambulance after apparently being punched in the head and falling to the ground. She was released from the hospital and did not attend school yesterday, Carroll said. Joe Galliera, the Kingsway athletic director, said an eighth-grade Kingsway Middle School student struck Settar while she was near the Clearview bus about 15 minutes after the Dragons had defeated Clearview, 49-34.

It was a typical game that ended in typical fashion: with a dramatic overtime victory for Clearview over Washington Township in girls' lacrosse. But the result was anything but typical for the Pioneers. Clearview won the first sectional title in the history of the program with a 7-6, double-overtime victory over host Washington Township on Thursday in the championship game of the South Jersey Group 4 tournament. Freshman Gianna Bowe scored two goals, including the winner with 22 seconds remaining in the second overtime, and senior Kim Tumolo added two goals as Clearview (17-4)

Brett Milden trotted to center field for the bottom of the seventh inning. The senior had just hit a sacrifice fly to right field with the bases loaded to give Clearview a one-run lead at Kingsway. A win would clinch a berth in the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic, a 16-team baseball tournament that the Pioneers hadn't played in since 1997. With one out, Kingsway's Matt Lesyk hit a long line drive to center field. Milden ran hard to his left, leaped, and made a catch that drew cheers from the Clearview bench.

Joe Sindoni weighed 168 pounds. He wrestled at 182. Ron Mestichelli weighed 121. He wrestled at 126. "We've been bumping our guys up all year," Clearview wrestling coach Keith Mourlam said. "It stretches our lineup out. " Sindoni, a junior, scored a key victory in the first bout, and Mestichelli, a senior, was part of a flurry of pins as host Clearview beat Pennsauken, 47-18, in the semifinals of the South Jersey Group 3 team wrestling tournament Wednesday night. "We took care of business," said Mestichelli, who registered a pin in 3 minutes, 17 seconds to give the Pioneers the lead for good in the eighth bout of the match.

Turn back the calendar to early October, and eight members of the Clearview girls' soccer team were hampered by injuries. The Pioneers and their fans were mourning their first loss to Highland in at least four meetings. And Clearview had a disappointing 5-6-1 record. Yesterday, after the Pioneers' 2-0 NJSIAA South Jersey Group 2 second-round playoff victory over the host Tartans, hard times were forgotten. Clearview coach Dan Matozzo and his players were congratulated by well-wishers.

Before the game, on the sideline, some Hammonton football players said, "There will be no 36 tonight. " They were referring to Clearview's scoring average in the first three games. Since Hammonton had yielded only a third of that total combined in its first four games, it was a pretty good bet that the Blue Devils would make good on their pregame vow. And they did. Continuing a season-long dominance on defense, efficiency on offense, and proficiency on special teams, Hammonton defeated visiting Clearview, 31-6, Friday night in a West Jersey Football League National Division game.

When Pennsville coach George Spae sends his girls' basketball team onto the floor, he expects the squad's multiple defenses to cause disruption. "The idea is to keep the other team off balance and confuse them," Spae said. "Hopefully, we can catch them unaware. The key is for the other team to get mixed up, not us. " Yesterday afternoon in a Tri-County Royal Division contest at Pennsville, the Eagles played their game almost to perfection in rolling past Clearview, 58-31. Clearview was limited to nine second-half points - including a two-point third quarter.

This afternoon at 2, it will be deja vu all over again for the Clearview and Moorestown girls' soccer teams. For the second time in three seasons, Clearview and Moorestown will meet in the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 soccer championship. Most of the host Quakers (16-3) weren't there when Moorestown defeated Clearview, 2-1, three years ago. Today's starting lineup is made up of mostly sophomores. Ninth-seeded Clearview (13-7) has a young team, just like second-seeded Moorestown, but the Pioneers have a couple of players who have not forgotten what it feels like to lose in the final: senior captain Kelly Giffear and junior captain Maria Dorris.

Christine Leupold is almost always happy but rarely satisfied. After Leupold, a Clearview senior, won state titles in the 100- and 200-yard freestyles, she couldn't stop grinning, but with Leupold, there's always a but. "I thought I would go a lot faster," she said. Leupold always seems to have the big picture in mind. She's always looking one or two or three steps ahead. "I can always do better," Leupold said. "I can always do something different that will make me happier, but I'm not complaining.

The bus ride home on April 15 wasn't merely quiet. "It was silent," Kingsway junior pitcher Devon Grippe said. The Dragons made some noise on Wednesday. Behind Grippe's powerful pitching and some timely hitting, Kingsway turned the tables on arch-rival Clearview with a 5-0 victory in a Tri-County Conference Royal Division clash of two of South Jersey's top softball teams. "We were very motivated to make up for the last game," Grippe said. "That fueled our fire. " Grippe, a junior right-hander, allowed four hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

Denny Bentley didn't know he was going to pitch for the Williamstown baseball team Friday afternoon at Clearview. He also didn't know he would be at bat in the top of the eighth inning. Both ended up being pleasant surprises. He worked four scoreless inning of relief, and drove in the go-ahead runs in the top of the eighth as the Braves topped the Pioneers, 7-4. With the win, the Braves moved closer to securing the Tri-County Royal division's automatic berth to the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic.

Three years ago, Caroline Farley was a nervous freshman, a natural offensive midfielder asked to play defense for the Shawnee girls' lacrosse team. One of Farley's fondest memories of that season was when the girl wearing No. 22, the tall junior defender, took her under her wing. "I was just this little freshman, but she welcomed me. She showed me everything I needed to know - and she became one of my best friends," Farley said of Katie Kernan, her teammate who passed away in July after a battle with brain cancer.

With two outs in the bottom of the seventh and a runner on third base, Oakcrest's Ryan Kelly hit a slow-rolling ground ball toward the St. Joseph shortstop that looked like it would be the final out. Instead, the ball was bobbled, Kelly reached safely, and John Dodson scored to cap off the Falcons' 8-7 comeback win Saturday in the Rohrer Tournament final at Haddon Township. Dodson had come to the plate with two outs and Oakcrest down, 7-6, in the bottom of the seventh. Jailen Heard, who was on first, stole both second and third.

On the lacrosse field, Matt Donnelly and Frank Pipich have a strong rapport. As members of Clearview's top attack line, the speedy seniors have a sense for each other sharpened through a friendship that began in first grade. "I sometimes know what he's going to do even before he does it," Pipich said of Donnelly. But it's off the field where Donnelly and Pipich have the deepest connection. Each athlete lost his father in 2013 and each has a unique appreciation of the other's difficult circumstance.

Matt Donnelly can only hope the rest of his final scholastic season is an echo of the start. Donnelly, a speedy senior, scored a career-high seven goals to lead visiting Clearview to a 14-6 victory over Haddonfield in the Olympic Conference Patriot Division opener for both boys' lacrosse teams Wednesday night. "I never scored seven before - not even in youth [lacrosse]," said Donnelly, a Penn State recruit. "It's a great feeling. " Junior Jackson Specht added four goals for Clearview, which burst to a 6-0 lead against a Haddonfield team with just two seniors on the roster.

Gianna Bowe won't say it was a good thing that she tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee last April. But the Clearview senior lacrosse star's perpetually sunny disposition allows her to see some benefits to her injury. "There actually were more positives than negatives that came out of the injury," Bowe said. Make no mistake: Bowe had a hard time sitting out the second half of her junior season in lacrosse, missing all of her senior season in soccer and skipping everything except one game of her senior season in basketball.

Just like last year, Mike VanBrill practiced with his team for the final time on the Thursday before the state tournament. VanBrill made sure he packed three pairs of $300 sneakers from his collection to go with his wrestling gear and clothes. Then he jumped in a car with his coach and teammates on the way to Atlantic City. The Clearview junior did all of this before, but he swears this year is different. VanBrill lost in the first round of states last year and didn't advance in wrestlebacks.
