Patience is something Cumberland freshman Niki DeCou has learned at a young age. The 14-year-old tennis player said she didn't learn to stay composed, however, until she had played a few matches in the No. 1 singles position for the Colts. "In the beginning of the season I was really nervous, and I felt a lot of pressure to win," said DeCou, who had a 16-3 record after losing in yesterday's quarterfinal round of the South Jersey Interscholastic tournament at Vineland.

Cumberland senior Gabe Hemighaus has committed to attend Monmouth University on a football scholarship. Hemighaus, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound tight end, made the commitment during an official visit to the school in West Long Branch, N.Y., last weekend. "I just fell in love with the place," said Hemighaus, a top student who plans to major in biology with an eye toward becoming a doctor. Hemighaus caught 38 passes for 418 yards last season. He said the Monmouth coaches project him as a tight end. "He's a true blocking tight end, but he still caught 38 passes and I'll bet 25 of them were for first downs," Cumberland coach Tom Lake said.

Something had to give. Both Neptune and Cumberland entered last night's Group 4 girls' state basketball semifinals with 27-0 records.

Teammate Haley Hulitt mowed down one Dragons batter after another, escaping from a couple of jams on the way to a no-hitter. In the moment, neither player knew what she had accomplished.

The entire elected bench of Cumberland County, Pa. - state Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin's home political turf - has rallied behind the embattled jurist, showing support that some critics say may have crossed an ethical line. The six judges sent a letter Dec. 18 on official stationery to the Court of Judicial Discipline, asking it to clear Eakin, who is facing misconduct charges for his exchange of offensive emails. The judges had their letter delivered to the judicial court on Dec. 18, three days before a hearing in which a tearful Eakin pleaded for leniency as a three-judge panel decided whether to suspend him before his trial.
