The best line about Gloucester Catholic's plan to build an athletic campus in Deptford Township came from former Rams baseball coach Dennis Barth, who speculated that his team would "really be good" with a new home field. Seeing as how Gloucester Catholic baseball has won four consecutive state titles and 18 state titles overall - more than twice as many as any other program - the Rams' pitchers, catchers, and hitters hardly seem to need much of an improved home-field advantage. They might get one anyway, based on plans the school unveiled Wednesday during a ceremonial groundbreaking event for the school's projected athletic facility adjacent to Rowan College of Gloucester County.

Faced with the choice of accepting two forfeit losses or playing two top-10 teams, Sterling girls' basketball coach Bill Ulrich opted for the latter. The Silver Knights showed why they aren't afraid to put their top ranking on the line during last night's 50-43 win over Gloucester Catholic in a nonleague game between teams ranked in the top 10 in South Jersey by The Inquirer. When Woodbury disbanded its varsity team in January, the Silver Knights could have taken the two forfeit wins.

Chelsea Duffy made her teammates happy with two sweet passes that led to the game's first two goals. She also made her coach happy when she didn't pass. "Chelsea is too unselfish sometimes," Gloucester Catholic girls' soccer co-coach Kate Ormsby said. "She's always trying to get her teammates involved. Sometimes, she's better off taking it herself. " Duffy, a senior midfielder who has committed to attend the University of Delaware, did a little of everything in leading third-seeded Gloucester Catholic to a 4-0 victory over 14th-seeded Bishop Eustace yesterday in a first-round game of the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association tournament.

Dennis Barth, who enjoyed two successful seasons as Gloucester Catholic's boys' basketball coach, has resigned. Barth turned in his resignation late last week, athletic director Jerry Scharff said yesterday. "He just had a busy schedule, and he wanted to slow down," Scharff said, adding that Barth will continue as the school's baseball coach. "Dennis did a great job with the basketball program, and we certainly appreciate all the time he put into the job. " Barth, who will be getting married tomorrow, is a 1980 graduate of Gloucester Catholic.

Even on a sloppy field with a heavier and soggier baseball, Gloucester Catholic junior righthander Pat Sperone can still be a dominant force. The only thing Sperone struggled with yesterday was staying dry during a 4-0 win over city rival Gloucester in the semifinal of Audubon's Ralph Shaw tournament. The game was called in the bottom of the fifth inning with Gloucester Catholic batting. The Rams had runners on first and second with one out. Yesterday's second game between Paul VI and host Audubon was postponed until today at noon.

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.

Jon Cole wasn't supposed to start. He didn't expect to finish. But the junior righthander went the distance Sunday night in leading Bishop Eustace Prep to a 4-1 victory over Eastern in the championship game of the 42d annual Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. "I didn't think I would go all seven," Cole said after pitching a four-hitter and allowing just one unearned run. Junior catcher Nate Steele drove in two runs and senior first baseman Ryan DiMeo scored two runs as Bishop Eustace (20-5)

Sam Tropiano would prefer another setting for his first attempt to win the 600th baseball game of his career. But the veteran Bishop Eustace Prep coach knows baseball has its own way of doing things. There will be something fitting about the scene, stakes and opponent when Tropiano steps on the field at Washington Township on Saturday afternoon and tries to become just the fourth coach in South Jersey history to win 600 games. Bishop Eustace (17-5) will play archrival Gloucester Catholic (21-3)

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - Mike Zapicchi didn't expect a hero's welcome. He wasn't disappointed. "I expected this," Zapicchi said of the overwhelmingly negative reaction from officials from non-public schools at a special meeting Tuesday at NJSIAA headquarters. Zapicchi is the principal of West Windsor-Plainsboro South and chairman of the NJSIAA's public/non-public committee that produced the controversial proposal to create a state-wide, non-public football conference. To say that Zapicchi and NJSIAA officials heard opposition to the plan on Tuesday would be an understatement.

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.

Some South Jersey baseball teams treat the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic as a tune-up for the playoffs. Many want to be competitive, but if there is a conflict with a conference or a playoff race, that team will frequently opt to throw a lesser pitcher. Then there is Bishop Eustace, which goes after winning the 16-team single-elimination tournament like few others in South Jersey history. Eustace advanced Saturday with a 4-2 win over Cherry Hill West in an opening-round Diamond game at Washington Township.

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.
