Tyrone Mann-Barnes, an Inquirer first-team all-South Jersey guard from Collingswood, has accepted a basketball scholarship to the Philadelphia University of the Sciences. Mann-Barnes averaged 20.5 points for Collingswood, which won the South Jersey Group 2 and Colonial Conference Liberty Division titles last season. He said he chose Sciences over Central Connecticut State. "The most important thing is that I will be getting a great education there," Mann-Barnes said. "Plus, I feel I can contribute to the basketball program.

Ameer Richardson saw it this summer. "The guys on the offensive line were working so hard in the weight room," Richardson said. "I knew they would be ready. " The Collingswood offensive line cleared the way for Richardson to start his senior season with a bang. Richardson, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound running back, gained 241 yards and scored all four touchdowns as Collingswood defeated Overbrook, 28-0, in a Colonial Conference Liberty Division game. "He's grown up," Collingswood coach Bob Barikian said of Richardson, a three-year starter at running back.

It is past the midway point of the season, and Lindenwold boys' basketball coach Harold Little is still tinkering. Fifteen games, 15 starting lineups. "And it may be 16 next game," Little said Tuesday night after his Lindenwold team had survived with a 59-58 victory over Collingswood in an interdivisional Colonial Conference game. The Lions are 8-7, but Little sees his team as one still looking for its identity. And junior point guard Bruce Hicks is expected to become eligible Feb. 1. That will give Little another person to work into the lineup, not that the coach will mind.

Collingswood football coach Jack McConnell might have lost track of the punts and penalties and peculiar plays that marked his team's game against Paulsboro. But he knew one statistic for sure. "We always talk about gut checks, and there were 1,000 of them," McConnell said after Collingswood's 16-14 victory over Paulsboro in a Colonial Conference interdivision tug-of-war Saturday. It was that kind of a game. It was a rugged, ragged struggle in which the turning point was a shotgun snap that sailed over the Paulsboro quarterback and out of the end zone for a safety that gave Collingswood a 2-0 lead in the third quarter.

The snap, a shotgun, slipped through Mike McLaughlin's hands and onto the turf. Rational thought went out the window. Instinct took over. McLaughlin picked up the ball and fired to his left. It was picked off and returned for an 18-yard touchdown. The Haddonfield football team's first drive lasted exactly one play. But it was a chance for McLaughlin, a senior quarterback, to show his resilience. "In any football game, you're going to face adversity - you just have to keep battling," McLaughlin said after bouncing back to lead the Bulldogs to a 27-20 home win over Collingswood in a crucial Colonial Conference Liberty Division matchup.

Collingswood field hockey goalie Becca Hall panicked as she ran to take her place on the field. She couldn't find her lucky jersey. "I told her change was good," Panthers captain Rachel Galante said. For Collingswood, change was great. The Panthers broke the undefeated streak of visiting West Deptford by pulling out a late 1-0 win in an intense Colonial Liberty matchup Wednesday afternoon at Knights Field. "It's awesome because last year we were in the same position as them, being undefeated," said Galante, a senior midfielder.

It was bitter cold with a relentless strong wind and a few periods of freezing rain. On any other week, one might describe the weather as completely miserable. This week, though . . . let's call it football weather. And visiting Haddon Heights used the opportunity as something of a dress rehearsal for the playoffs, and a way to illustrate every one of its strengths in a convincing 35-0 win over Collingswood on Friday night. "We needed to come out and take care of business, and we did," said Garnets coach Ralph Schiavo, whose team will likely earn a No. 3 seed in the sectional Group 2 playoffs.

During the preseason, there was polite talk of Delran High's baseball tradition in the face of an apparent rebuilding year. The preseason is a distant memory. Crisp defense, stellar pitching and a bit of luck gave the rapidly improving Bears, the third-seeded team, a 3-1 win over sixth-seeded Collingswood yesterday in a South Jersey Group 2 quarterfinal baseball game. The victory at damp Notre Dame field in Delran gave the Bears, ranked No. 5 in The Inquirer's South Jersey rankings, a fast start in what promises to be a loaded Group 2 field.

They were just kids, Haddon Township High School friends in the springtime of their lives. Boys and girls hanging out in houses, driving Jersey roads, pulling pranks. Laughing. But in July 2006, the laughter was cut short. One of the friends, 16-year-old junior and field hockey player Ann Marie Lynch, died in a jet ski accident off Ocean City. "That was my first experience with mortality," said Tom Turcich, one of the pack, now 25. For months, he walked around in a fog of grief. Until one day in class, he saw the movie Dead Poets Society and had his own carpe diem moment.

To put it mildly, Dakota Williams loves books. "I think books are the best things in the world," said Dakota, 11. "I think books can really intrigue people. And books can help them not think about bad things that are going on. " So when his teachers at William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood challenged him and his fellow fifth graders to come up with projects that would be good for the community and make the world a better place, for Dakota it was a no-brainer: He was going to do something with books.

When Gabe Guerrieri opened Genesis Counseling 36 years ago in a Collingswood storefront, the agency had a single counselor: Gabe Guerrieri. A lot has changed since 1979. Genesis Counseling Centers now has four South Jersey locations, 70 employees, and mental health or addiction treatment programs serving 6,000 people each year. And Guerrieri, 74, stepped aside a year ago for a new executive director, Barry Bailey, a 28-year Genesis veteran who rose through the ranks. "Gabe built this from the ground up," says Bailey, 55. "It has evolved a lot. " As the organization prepares to honor its founder Thursday at the Valleybrook Country Club in Blackwood, Guerrieri and Bailey agree that the core of what Genesis does hasn't changed.
