Colonial Conference athletic directors decided yesterday that they need more time before they figure out how to construct their new-look conference. In a meeting at Woodbury High, Colonial officials discussed several proposals but made no decisions, according to Sterling athletic director Bill Hiltner, who serves as the conference's president. The NJSIAA recently approved Lindenwold as the conference's 11th member. Lindenwold will open in September. "At our next meeting [Jan.

The Colonial Conference honored 20 of the area's premier high school performers during its second annual Scholar/Athlete Awards Dinner at the Eagles Nest Country Club in Sewell. The league selected a senior girl and boy scholar-athlete from each of its 10 teams. Kansas City all-pro defensive back Kevin Ross, a 1980 graduate of Paulsboro High, was the guest speaker. "I feel good about my experiences I had in the Colonial Conference," said Ross. "The Colonial has set standards and morals higher than anywhere else in South Jersey.

Someone forgot to tell the Haddon Heights field hockey team that a squad that has won just three games over the last two seasons can't be challenging for the Colonial Conference title. We're talking about the Colonial, a conference that sent three teams to their respective sectional-title games last season and a conference that has had at least one team in a sectional final every year since 1980. Somehow, the Garnets don't want to listen. Heights has rattled off four consecutive victories to improve to 5-1-1, just one point behind Collingswood (6-1-0)

Haddon Heights was expected to be a Colonial Conference contender in 2000. That timetable may have been moved up a year. While far from being the favorite, the Garnets, who went 7-15 last season, are at least contenders with their 5-3 start. With just two seniors, catcher Kevin Don and outfielder Tim McDonald, the future appears bright for the Garnets. But the present isn't too bad, either. Junior infielder Tim Ronaldson is batting a team-high .500 with a team-leading 10 RBIs, and classmate Brent Dempsey is 2-0 with one save and a 0.95 ERA. Dempsey, who also plays shortstop, and freshman second baseman Ray Hastings have given the Garnets a solid double-play combination.

Overbrook High School was admitted into the Colonial Conference by an 8-3 vote of superintendents yesterday at Sterling. At least eight votes were needed for Overbrook to be added to the 11-team conference. The move will become effective in the 2008-09 school year, said Lindenwold athletic director Derryk Sellers, who serves as the Colonial president. The addition of Overbrook will give the Colonial 12 schools, and Sellers said the conference would be divided into two divisions in sports that have at least five teams per division.

Tricia Ryan received a second chance last night, and she made it count. Sterling's 5-foot-6 junior guard missed what could have been the winning shot in regulation. But she came back to hit four free throws in overtime to help the Silver Knights to a 43-40 Colonial Conference girls' basketball victory over Haddonfield. The win put Sterling in a position to win the Colonial Conference championship. It gave the Silver Knights a 20-3 overall record, 15-2 in the Colonial. Sterling has one league game remaining, at home against Collingswood tomorrow night.

All season long, the Paulsboro boys' basketball team has been looking for a breakthrough win. The wait is over. The Red Raiders last night stunned visiting Haddon Heights, 63-61, in a Colonial Conference thriller. Bill Ginipro's leaning 12-foot jumper with three seconds left snapped a 61-61 tie. Paulsboro then stole the inbounds pass to secure the win. Paulsboro improved to 8-14 overall and 7-9 in the conference. The young Red Raiders had lost five games by five points or fewer, including a one-point double-overtime loss to new Colonial leader Woodbury.

A fourth-quarter comeback by Paulsboro's boys' basketball team led to a 57-52 win over visiting Sterling last night and forged a three-way tie for first place in the Colonial Conference. Paulsboro, which lost a double-overtime game on Jan. 3 at Sterling, 94-90, improved to 14-2 overall and 10-2 in the conference. Sterling fell to 11-5 and 10-2. The Silver Knights once held a two-game lead, but now are tied with Paulsboro and West Deptford for first place. Paulsboro had to play more than five minutes of the fourth quarter without star guard Kevin Harvey, who colided with teammate Lee Griffin with 6 minutes, 52 seconds remaining and Sterling leading, 44-41.

It's almost unfair. The Haddonfield boys' basketball team may have too much talent to play in the Colonial Conference. The proof could be last night's first-place showdown between the Bulldogs and the Sterling Silver Knights in Haddonfield. Haddonfield's 61-42 victory marked its 50th consecutive conference victory. The Bulldogs' last conference setback came on Feb. 22, 2003, against Paulsboro. Led by Russell Carter, now a junior guard at Notre Dame, the Red Raiders prevailed, 71-57.

Brian Probst is making up for lost time. The senior midfielder didn't begin practicing until Sept. 24 because of a leg injury that occurred over the summer. Yesterday, in only his fourth game, Probst scored two goals in Haddonfield's 3-1 victory over visiting Gateway in boys' soccer. The game was a physical one between two Colonial Conference contenders. Haddonfield improved to 7-1 overall and 7-1 in the conference. Gateway, ranked 10th in South Jersey by The Inquirer and rebounding from a 6-10-2 season, suffered its first loss, dropping to 7-1 and 6-1. Probst, a third-year starter, picked a good time to have the best game of his short season.

Haddonfield has maintained its status as South Jersey's last unbeaten baseball team, but the Bulldawgs needed a final-inning comeback to preserve their perfect season. Drew Dark's one-out, bases-loaded RBI single capped a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning during a 5-4 win over Sterling in a Colonial Conference nail-biter Friday. Ranked No. 6 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, the Bulldogs are now 16-0. Sterling fell to 6-9. "I was determined to get on by hit or walk," Dark said.

In a blistering letter to administrators in the Colonial Conference, West Deptford High athletic director Jason Morrell on Monday accused Haddonfield High officials of a "lack of integrity" in handling a social-media incident involving West Deptford football coach Clyde Folsom. Morrell wrote that Haddonfield displayed a "dismissive" attitude in reaction to the Facebook photo and posting accusing Folsom of using an obscene gesture during the Dec. 7 South Jersey Group 2 championship football game.

A number of the Colonial Conference football teams have byes this weekend, and that's a good thing, because many of the 12 teams really need to catch their breath. While there are debates each year about the best leagues in South Jersey (in relation to group size), during the first five weeks of the season, the Colonial has offered exciting games that could stand up against any other league's. As in any league, the Colonial has had its share of blowouts, but when evenly matched teams collide, it has delivered sheer excitement.

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.

Lindenwold senior quarterback Malik Muldrow, who was on pace to become the Colonial Conference's leader in career passing yards, is likely out for the season with an injury, Lions coach James McGuirl said Tuesday. McGuirl said Muldrow suffered a broken rib and punctured lung in Lindenwold's 12-7 victory over Gateway on Sept. 19. Muldrow scored both touchdowns in that game, including a 37-yard run after he was injured, McGuirl said. "I guess it was adrenaline," McGuirl said.

When Davon Tucker and J.T. Thompson walked into Sterling High School as freshmen, the Silver Knights football program wasn't a Colonial Conference championship contender. They weren't a threat in South Jersey Group 2, either. Sterling, in the three years before Tucker and Thompson and their classmates joined new coach Clint Wiley's program, had fallen on hard times: a 6-24 record, sparse crowds in the home stands on Friday nights, little enthusiasm for the football team in the school's halls.

Don Clark, who built West Deptford boys' basketball into one of the Colonial Conference's most competitive programs, has resigned after five seasons as the Eagles coach. Clark said he wants to spend more time watching his children play sports at Clearview. Clark led West Deptford to a 22-6 record last season. The Eagles finished second to Haddonfield in the Colonial's Liberty Division and advanced to the second round of the South Jersey Group 2 tournament before losing to eventual champion Camden.

The Colonial Conference has voted down a projected alliance with the Cape-Atlantic League for football and altered its format for crossover games. The Colonial Conference's vote on Wednesday was 7-5 against the alliance with the Cape-Atlantic. A vote of 8-4 in favor was needed to approve an arrangement that would have created crossover games between the leagues in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Colonial Conference president Lou Raba, the athletic director at Gateway, said the league has decided to create a new system for crossover games in 2014, focusing on matching teams of similar competitive strength.

The Cape-Atlantic League gave an emphatic "thumbs up" to the possibility of an alliance with the Colonial Conference for football in 2014. The Colonial Conference raised its index finger, asking for more time. Colonial Conference athletic directors deferred the decision to superintendents and Boards of Education at the school districts after meeting Tuesday morning to discuss the proposed alliance. The proposal will be presented to each Colonial Conference school's superintendent and Board of Education.

West Deptford vs. Mainland. Haddonfield vs. Bridgeton. Paulsboro vs. Pleasantville. Those unique matchups and many others could take place under a proposed alliance of the Colonial Conference and Cape-Atlantic League for football in 2014. Representatives of the two leagues are deep in discussions about an arrangement that would be more of a loose alliance than a merger, several sources have told The Inquirer. The leagues are still working out the details of the alliance. There is believed to be resistance to the arrangement on both sides.
