When Johnny Shamir walks into the gym, members of the opposing team notice. Shamir is 6-foot-1, with long hair and a beard, so many compare his look to Jesus. It's different. Since the Eastern High School volleyball player brings an intimidating appearance onto the court, opponents often look to stop him first, and that opens up space for the rest of the team. As for his own play, Shamir often takes a subtle approach. "It doesn't really matter how hard you hit the ball as long as it hits the ground," said Shamir, who also is known by his Hebrew name, Tsur.

The Eastern High School field hockey team played with its standard mix of skill, speed and synchronicity on Monday. The Vikings rolled out a new weapon, too: indignation. "We wanted to make a statement," senior midfielder Madison Morano said after her team's imposing 12-0 victory over Shore in the Tournament of Champions play-in game at West Windsor-Plainsboro North High School. Senior Nikki Santore scored six goals and Morano collected two assists and played a superb all-around game for Eastern (25-0)

Eastern High School announced Thursday that Jamie McGroarty has resigned as varsity softball coach after six years. "Mr. McGroarty was more than a coach to his student athletes, but a role model who showed his students how to succeed," Eastern's vice principal of athletics, Philip Smart, said in a statement. The announcement came a day after Eastern was eliminated in the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals. "When I took the job, it was supposed to be a one- or two-year job, and it morphed into a six-year thing," McGroarty said.

Shamita Alwani, 16, a junior at Eastern High School, spends at least three periods a week in school watching television. But that's more than OK with Shamita's parents, Dru and Sheela, and her teachers because Shamita is one of a handful of Eastern students taking part in a pilot program to bring classes in Russian, Japanese, probability and statistics, and economics to the Voorhees Township school live via satellite. "It's a lot of fun," says Shamita, who is one of two students in the Russian I class.

Eastern High School teachers formally decided yesterday to ignore a judge's back-to-work order, and school district officials said classes would be canceled until Wednesday unless the staff decided to return earlier. The only strike in a public school district in New Jersey ended its third day yesterday. Both sides are scheduled to meet with a state mediator tomorrow. Officials in the 1,500-student Eastern Camden County Regional School District in Voorhees already had scheduled an in-service day for teachers but no classes on Monday - the first day of Rosh Hashana - and they said they might have an in-service day or classes if they settle before Tuesday.

When it comes to comparing, Eastern High School is the best. The school year is kind of fun except for HSP tests. When it comes to sports, we've got it all from track in spring, winter and fall. Most people think Eastern High School has a problem, but our administration is trying their best to solve them. Before a cheering audience of 1,300 Eastern High School students and teachers Friday, ninth grader Lee Gardner, accompanied by the Hype Boys - classmates Orey Ferrell and Preston Quartey - rapped and danced to a pulsating beat.

After receiving a positive evaluation from an NFL advisory committee, Ohio State cornerback and former Eastern High School star Eli Apple announced Monday on Twitter that he would give up his final two years of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. Apple, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt sophomore, started 14 games as a freshman on Ohio State's 2014 national championship team. He had 13 starts this season, when he was second on the Buckeyes with eight passes broken up while posting 33 tackles.

Joe Johnson will be heading off to powerhouse Stanford and Mike Johnson has just returned from a trip with the U.S. National team to Europe, but the Fort Washington brothers will take time off from their travels to head the Region 1 water-polo team in the 1987 Keystone State Games. The Johnson brothers, who led Germantown Academy to a second-place finish at the Eastern High School championship in the fall, excel at a sport that gets little notice in the Philadelphia area - or much of the rest of the country outside California.

Onondaga Community College, Syracuse, N.Y. When Michelle Delloso graduated from Quakertown High School in 1987, that was the only school that offered her a scholarship to play softball. That wasn't what the star shortstop who grew up idolizing Major League Baseball star Ozzie Smith had in mind. No, when she was watching the women's college World Series just three years earlier, she had greater aspirations. She would play for mighty Arizona State or the University of Arizona. She was sure of it. But graduation came and went, and Onondaga was the only school that called.

As do most seniors, Emily Serata feels an urgency to make the most of her final high school season. Serata has been playing with many of her Eastern High School teammates for her entire career. She's part of a core group of seniors who are three- or four-year starters. But what's different about this season, in what might seem like a paradox, is that Serata says she doesn't feel any pressure to perform. She wants to excel. She just doesn't feel as if she has to excel. "As a senior, I feel more relaxed than ever," Serata said.

It would be correct to say Darren Gibson rose to the moment. It would also be correct to say he fell back. Gibson, a junior swingman at Eastern High School, specializes in taking charges. He is a master at the dirty job of drawing offensive fouls. "I think he has 34 of them," Eastern coach Kevin Crawford said. "I've had some kids that we good at taking charges. I've never had a kid with 34 of them. " Gibson's 34th was his most important of the season, the "play of the game," in Eastern's 45-43 win over archrival Cherry Hill East in the South Jersey Group 4 quarterfinals, according to Crawford.

CHANDLER, Ariz. - When the New England Patriots drafted Logan Ryan in April 2013, the Eastern High School graduate sent a text message to another alumnus: Adam Taliaferro. "Hey, man, I'm playing for you," Ryan wrote, according to Taliaferro. Taliaferro starred for Eastern in the late 1990s. He went to Penn State, where he played as a freshman for Joe Paterno. On Sept. 23, 2000, Taliaferro suffered a spinal cord injury that paralyzed him from the neck down. Doctors gave him a 3 percent chance to walk again.

One goal is never enough for Austyn Cuneo. But then, apparently, neither are 233. "Every goal is a thrill," said Cuneo, who is set to begin her senior year at Eastern High School. "Whether you score one goal or 200, it's always a scoring thrill. And you always want to score more. " Cuneo is the greatest goal-scorer in the history of scholastic field hockey. She will enter her final season with 233 goals, which means she already has eclipsed the old record by 42 goals. She scored 69 as a freshman, 68 as a sophomore, and 96 - another national record - as a junior.
