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.

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)

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.
