John Marcucci knew that building the Gloucester County Institute of Technology baseball program was a major construction project. He just didn't realize that some of his first players would take such a literal approach to the job. "When we started, we had players come to practice in work boots and jeans," Marcucci said. GCIT has come a long way in seven seasons. The Cheetahs made the state tournament for the first time in 2010, won a playoff game for the first time in 2011, and reached the South Jersey Group 2 championship game in 2012.

South Jersey's best swimmers will have to wait another week to find out who are the best of the best. Yesterday's South Jersey Interscholastic Swim Association Invitational was postponed because of poor pool conditions at the Gloucester County Institute of Technology. "It's a water-quality issue," association president Joe Pegues said. "It's too cloudy for the kids to swim. " Though the school's pool filter is scheduled for maintenance on Wednesday and Thursday, officials had hoped the filter would hold out until yesterday.

Vineland's Heather DeHainaut said that if it had been a meters pool, like the one at her school, she and her team would have won. Cherry Hill East's Kristel Haesler agreed. Then she smiled and gave a little thanks that the 200-yard freestyle relay in yesterday's NJSIAA Swimming Championships had been contested in the yards pool at Gloucester County Institute of Technology. "I was real nervous on the block," said Haesler, who swam the anchor leg. "I kept screaming for [my teammates]

Cinnaminson opened its season with a big-time battle against another Group 2 power. The Pirates likely will finish the same way. "I have so much confidence in our team because we always seem to play well in big games," Cinnaminson senior guard Max DiLeo said. DiLeo recently scored his 1,000th point. He called it a "huge deal" because his brother T.J., now a sophomore at Temple, had scored his 1,000th point in 2008. "I remember when my brother did it thinking that maybe I could do it, too," Max DiLeo said.

Herbert F. Johnson, 66, of Pitman, a lifelong educator who served as superintendent of the Lindenwold public schools from 1994 to 2000, died Tuesday, Dec. 11, of a heart ailment while swimming in the Gloucester County Institute of Technology pool, his morning ritual for 20 years. When Mr. Johnson assumed the helm of the small school system, consisting then of three elementaries, he was handed the state-mandated task of reassigning students to achieve racial balance. "Many parents weren't real pleased with him over that," said his wife, Sally.

When Sophie Fontaine finishes a race, she knows she can count on her parents to be cheering for her in the stands. The junior captain of the Haddonfield girls' swimming team will look up to her support system again this weekend, as she competes in the NJSIAA Meet of Champions at Gloucester County Institute of Technology. Preliminaries are Saturday; finals are scheduled for Sunday. "My parents are always there," Fontaine said. "They go to practically every meet. They're definitely big supporters no matter how I do. " Fontaine has destroyed Haddonfield school records this year, leading her team to the Public C final last weekend.

Brendan McHugh suspected his competitive swimming career was finished. He was a 22-year-old Penn graduate. He was preparing to enter law school at Washington and Lee University. He had done well at the 2012 Olympic trials - 10th in the 100-meter breaststroke, 16th in the 200-meter breaststroke - but it wasn't as if he had just missed making the U.S. team. He also had a broken arm, courtesy of a pickup basketball game. "I wasn't sure, but I was thinking I might be done," said McHugh, who stunned the swimming world Aug. 8, setting a United States Open record with a time of 27.10 seconds and winning the 50-meter breaststroke at the national championships in Irvine, Calif.

Mike Sheridan's left arm hit the wall, and his life followed with a crisp flip-turn. Sheridan, a Rancocas Valley senior, had been every baseball coach's dream, a good guy with a good left arm. Now, he's a dream for RV swimming coach Paul Gardiner. "If he had been with the team longer," Gardiner said, "there's no doubt he would have been a unanimous choice for captain. He's that type of kid. " This, however, is his first season on the team. Still, Sheridan has qualified for the first big meet of the season, Saturday's South Jersey Coaches Invitational at the Gloucester County Institute of Technology.

Marie Labosky and her teammates decided on their theme song during an elevator ride with Cyndi Lauper in August. Labosky, a Germantown Academy senior, was in Minneapolis for the United States Senior National swimming championships at the University of Minnesota. Lauper, the pop-music icon of the 1980s, stepped in and out of Labosky's life in a few seconds, but her music has lived on with the Patriots. "She was there with blue hair," Labosky said with a laugh. Chlorine is also known to turn the hair strange colors, but Labosky and Lauper didn't exchange advice on that matter.

Thomas successfully defended her 500-yard freestyle crown, clocking 4 minutes, 58.92 seconds and holding off the Washington Township duo of Cassie Cregar (4:59.

A few days after Christmas break, Michelle Wesh started complaining of a backache. She couldn't swim the butterfly without tremendous pain, so she was content to swim breaststroke instead for the Woodbury/Gateway swim team. Coach Joe Pegues normally doesn't let his swimmers out of an event if they are complaining of aches and pains. But he made an exception for Wesh. "Michelle is one of those kids who doesn't complain unless it's bad and knows to listen to her body," Pegues said.

Kelly O'Hara's swimming talent gives her options. It already has earned her a scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh and allowed her to compete last month in the U.S. Open, a national meet outside of Seattle. Her heritage could give her more options. O'Hara, a senior at Timber Creek and one of the favorites to win the 50-yard freestyle at the state championships, dreams of swimming for the United States at the Olympics. But she also hopes to swim in international competitions under another flag.

For two years, Washington Township's Mandee Cregar swam the breaststroke and the individual medley faster than just about any girl in South Jersey. For two years, few noticed. That's because when Cregar finished eighth in the 200-yard IM and ninth in the 100-yard breaststroke at the state championships her freshman year, her teammate Heather Meng, then a sophomore, was second in the IM and the state champ in the breaststroke. "She was in the shadow of Heather with most of the press and attention, especially because they're both breaststrokers," Washington Township coach Gary Mount said.
