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.

Before they began following a controversial new student misconduct policy late this spring, Collingswood school officials called local police 32 times over nine months. That figure stands in contrast to the 22 incidents reported after May 25, when the school district contacted law enforcement for nearly every incident of student misbehavior. More than half of the calls between Sept. 3 and May 25 came from Collingswood High School, where incidents ranged from cellphone and bicycle thefts to marijuana possession, according to police incident reports obtained by the Inquirer on Tuesday.

A 42-year-old Camden County man was arraigned Monday in federal court on charges that he distributed child pornography and conspired to sexually exploit two children, prosecutors said. Alexander Capasso, of Collingswood, was arrested last July after he allegedly sent child porn to an undercover agent. Federal agents executed a search warrant at his home and found more child porn, including videos of two children that Capasso allegedly made with his ex-girlfriend. If convicted on the conspiracy charge, Capasso would face a mandatory minimum 15 years in prison and a maximum 30 years.

Collingswood school officials, borough leaders, and the Camden County Prosecutor's Office will hold a public meeting July 26 to discuss "recent issues involving the schools and the Camden County Prosecutor's Office," the borough announced Monday. The meeting, set for 7 p.m. in the Collingswood Senior Community Center, comes after weeks of parent outcry over a new district policy under which schools reported 22 incidents of sometimes minor student misconduct to local police between May 25 and the end of school on June 17. School district officials and law enforcement said they were following a new directive from the Prosecutor's Office to report nearly every incident of student misbehavior, but the Prosecutor's Office denied issuing any such instructions.

Restaurateur Alex Capasso, accused of molesting and taking sexually explicit photographs of a young girl, was described in court Monday as a "violent sociopath" by the child's mother, who asked a federal judge in Camden to turn down his request for bail. U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen M. Williams agreed that Capasso, 42, of Collingswood, should remain jailed pending trial because of the severity of the crimes and the age of the victims, and because he would pose a threat to the community.

Two kindergartners fighting. One student calling another "fat" because the first called him "short. " A rough game of tag. And an alleged racist comment about brownies at a third-grade class party that drew national attention. These were among 22 complaints Collingswood police investigated during the last month of school, when officials in the district of 1,875 students began reporting nearly every incident of student misbehavior to law enforcement as part of a new policy. The incidents are detailed in police reports that the Inquirer obtained Friday through a public records request.

Three years ago, Amanda Cohen and her husband moved from Philadelphia to Collingswood in hopes their son, now 5 years old, would be able to attend a better school. With their son set to start kindergarten in the fall, and a 2-year-old daughter behind him, the Cohens are beginning to question their decision. A policy that schools believed required them to report nearly every incident of student misbehavior to local police has caused a stir in the 14,000-person borough, where many parents feel they have been misled by local officials for weeks.

In Collingswood, school and law enforcement officials now agree on who is to blame for the district's policy of calling police for even minor student misbehavior: everybody. After a five-hour meeting Tuesday, Camden County prosecutors, Collingswood police, and school officials agreed that they are each partially accountable for a controversial directive put in place May 25 under which schools reported nearly every incident of misconduct, including second graders roughhousing in the lunch line.

In the aftermath of an incident involving a third grader, a purported racist comment, and a brownie, the Camden County prosecutor said Monday that she never issued an order requiring district schools to report nearly every incident of student misbehavior. The announcement by Mary Colalillo came five weeks after a meeting at which school officials say they were instructed by the prosecutor's office to do just that. Since then, students as young as 7 have been questioned by police for incidents including roughhousing in the lunch line and making an allegedly racist comment about snacks.
