Lots of guys can dunk in the open floor. That's regular explosion. Not many guys can dunk off a half-court set. That's remarkable explosion. Senior guard Stefano Okoro scored 32 points Thursday to lead Gloucester to a 57-42 victory over Holy Cross in the first round of the Audubon Holiday Tournament in boys' basketball. Junior forward Chris Walmsley scored 17, hitting five three-point jumpers, and senior guard Justin Smith had six assists for Gloucester (3-1), which advanced to face Audubon in Friday's title game.

A loss to Glassboro early this year played on the minds of Gloucester's football team. It was the Lions' lone loss this season, and it came after they had built a 14-0 lead. That loss was avenged yesterday, when Gloucester beat host Glassboro, 24-20, in the Group 1 South Jersey semifinals. The victory puts Gloucester in the South Jersey Group 1 championship, where it will meet defending Group 1 champion Paulsboro, a 44-6 semifinal winner over Florence, on Dec. 2 at Gateway High.

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.

Justin Graves might be older than his uncle. But he still can count on him for protection. "I feel safer running behind somebody I've known my whole life," said Graves, Gloucester's standout junior running back and defensive back. Graves is a nephew of Gloucester junior offensive tackle and nose tackle A.J. Alzate, who is the younger brother of Graves' father, Chris. The pair have led Gloucester to the brink of one of the more important games in the recent history of the program: Friday night's home clash with rival Pennsville.

Pennsville senior Colin Rieger's first two pitches were out of the strike zone. The rest of his game was practically perfect. In fact, Rieger pitched a perfect game, retiring 15 consecutive batters in Pennsville's 10-0 win over Gloucester in a South Jersey Group 1 playoff game on Thursday. "It was a great team performance," Pennsville coach Matt O'Brien said after the game was ended in five innings by the 10-run rule. "Colin had great command. He kept the ball down and the guys made the plays behind him. " Rieger needed just 45 pitches to record the perfect game.

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.

Like the scene at a mall on the day of a door-buster sale, scores of hopeful job-seekers thronged a job fair Friday in pursuit of work at the new Gloucester Premium Outlets in Blackwood, set to open in August. Before the event at Camden County College in Blackwood began at 10 a.m., hundreds had already shown up. Many brought resumés and a willingness to accept any of the 800 positions available at the 90-store center. "I think it's a positive day," said Precious Jemibewon, 29, of Sicklerville, who has been out of work since a car accident in December.

Some Gloucester County residents have been receiving election-mail blasts from the past. Days after polls closed for the state's primary election, some county residents only this week received sample ballots for the June 2 election. Officials say an apparent mailing problem is to blame. As of Thursday, some residents still had not received sample ballots - including county Election Superintendent Stephanie Salvatore. "As angry as these voters are, none of these voters are as angry as I am," said Salvatore, of Mantua.

It was a bang-bang play that ended the top of the sixth inning and ignited the cheers among the Gloucester Catholic faithful. It also turned up the flame inside of Bishop Eustace pitcher Tyler Phillips. "After (Ryan) DiMeo got called out at third, the fire built up for me," Phillips said. "I said, 'I'm not going to lose to that team.' " Phillips did his best work late in the pressure-packed game as Bishop Eustace beat Gloucester Catholic 2-1 in a clash of the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in South Jersey in the Non-Public South A semifinals on Friday.

Keanu Kelii's sixth-inning single drove in the go-ahead run as No. 2 Gloucester Catholic beat visiting No. 7 Notre Dame, 1-0, in the South Jersey Non-Public A quarterfinals. Tyler Mondile walked one and struck out two in a five-hitter. Tre Todd and Anthony Harrold had two hits each. South Jersey Group 3 Semifinals Dalton Burns laid down a two-run squeeze bunt in the bottom of the seventh to give fifth-seeded Delsea a 6-5 win over No. 8 Winslow Township. With the Crusaders down, 5-4, Burns came to the plate with the bases loaded and none out. He laid down a bunt that scored Tommy Carney and Jimmy Ruppel, whose slide was just ahead of the tag to win it. Ruppel hit a ground-rule double in the seventh for Delsea that put runners in scoring position.

Working on a shoestring, a wing, and a prayer - make that many prayers - Mary Lou Adams and a handful of other volunteers are vowing that the show will go on this year in Gloucester City. The seventh annual Art, Music, and Crafts Festival sponsored by a private organization called the Gloucester City Cultural Arts and Heritage Society is set for June 14 at Proprietors Park, along South King Street on the downtown waterfront. Music, art, crafts, collectibles, food, and children's entertainment will be offered from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., said Adams, who this spring had considered canceling the event because of a seeming lack of interest on the part of longtime participants.

When the Gloucester Catholic baseball team looks back at past performance, it's almost always to draw strength and confidence from prior success. The Rams' mindset was different on Saturday. "We had some extra motivation," Gloucester Catholic senior catcher Tre Todd said of the team's struggles in the first round of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic over the previous three seasons. Todd drove in three runs and junior right-hander Tyler Mondile pitched a one-hitter as Gloucester Catholic beat Lenape 11-0 in a Diamond Classic opener that was shortened to five innings by the 10-run rule.

Gloucester Catholic is a small Catholic school in a small, working-class city. Unlike South Jersey's traditional boys' lacrosse powers, the school doesn't have a proper feeder system. The Rams rely mostly on word of mouth spreading through the school's hallways. Players do what they can to draw a spotlight to the team, to persuade friends and classmates to join the program. So consider their 12-8 win over Brick Memorial on Friday night about as perfect an advertisement as they could hope for. The game - played under the lights at Total Turf in Mantua - was senior night for the Rams.
