Jon Lado thought his coach was kidding him. Before the first scrimmage of his freshman season, Lado listened while Gloucester coach Tom McConnell made a bold prediction: The kid with virtually no wrestling experience would finish his career with 100 victories. "I thought he was just trying to motivate me," Lado said Wednesday night, after extending the best individual career in the short history of the revived Gloucester program. Lado, a senior 145-pounder, beat Woodstown's Dylan Weiss by a 6-3 decision in the opening round of the Region 8 wrestling tournament at Egg Harbor Township.

With the game tied in the bottom of the seventh last Saturday, Gloucester's Maddy Chain knew she had to step up big for her team. And she did. The senior captain hit a walk-off home run to give the Lions and 8-7 win over Triton to capture the championship of the Camden County Tournament. It's moments like that Chain says drives her to be the best. "I want to be the one to get us out of tough situations," Chain said. "My intensity just builds up. . . and I just have that drive where I want it and I don't want to stop.
