Mike Narducci waited more than two decades to get a high school head coaching job. For his patience, the first-year Audubon coach has received the Colonial Conference's most demanding early-season schedule and the league's most inexperienced team. After 21 years as an Audubon assistant, including the last 12 as the defensive coordinator, Narducci says he is happy to finally run his own program. Narducci, who replaces Joe Bendorf (70-51-4 in 13 seasons), will work with few familiar faces from last year's 6-3-1 team, which qualified for the South Jersey Group 1 playoffs.

Normally when a coach loses three key seniors off a losing team, it is, at the very least, time to get nervous. But Audubon head coach Alice Borden seems hardly jumpy at all. In fact, Borden is downright optimistic about her squad's chances in this year's Colonial play. For Borden, such apparent peace of mind is spelled E-L-L-E-N, as in Green Wave star senior guard Ellen Cosgrove. "I really think Ellen is going to be the top all-around player in the Colonial this year," Borden said.

Audubon is hoping to take a few steps up the ladder in girls' basketball this year. The Green Wave was in the South Jersey Group 1 final in 1980 and 1983. But Audubon hasn't qualified for the tournament since 1986 and hasn't won a tournament game since 1983. This year the team has good depth, including three returning starters, and a former star has returned to her alma mater as an assistant coach. COACH. Joe Wall begins his fourth season as girls' head coach at Audubon, having compiled a 19-46 mark over the first three.

When Audubon basketball coach Don Borden looks at this year's varsity he sees some small guys, some young guys and a big pair of sneakers left unfilled. "We're very small this year, and we're also very young," said Green Wave coach Borden. "The truth is we have nothing but guards on this team. And then, of course, there's Shea. " More precisely, Borden means there is no Shea Harvey, the graduated star guard. Audubon will have to do without Harvey's 18 points per game, not to mention his leadership.

A loss in no way would have ended Temple's chances of making the NCAA Tournament. Likewise, it would be premature to assume the Owls now are in, just because they rolled 16th-ranked Tulane, 79-57, last night at McGonigle Hall. Conventional wisdom suggests that - given strength of schedule and the lofty power rating of the Atlantic 10 - Temple needs 16 wins to secure an at- large bid to the NCAA Tournament, unless it gets in by winning the conference tournament. With four games to go before the A-10 playoffs, the Owls (12-10)

The baseball knowledge is obviously there, but another reason why Rich Horan has been so successful guiding Audubon's program has been his ability to adjust. Horan has won with veteran teams, with younger squads and with some in between. A baseball lifer, Horan, who also played at Audubon, is an intense competitor, and that often rubs off on the players. Except for the beginning of this year. Horan sensed that his ways may have needed an adjustment, especially after Audubon lost its first three games.

From the outside, Windle Mechanical Solutions Inc. is a squat, inconspicuous factory almost as unremarkable as the same-as-the-next rowhouses that surround it in Philadelphia's Tacony section. Inside, it's no more phenomenal. There are no snaking assembly lines, no massive stockpiles of steel, aluminum, and bronze. But then, there are no big orders. On last week's jobs list: Six positioning devices for probes on an automatic welding machine; Four wheels for a military carrier launch and retrieval system; Four couplings for a nuclear pump application; Two helicopter-frame fittings; Two airplane landing-gear parts, and Two parts for biopharmaceutical freeze-driers.

Third-year Audubon girls' basketball coach Joe Wall hopes his sport is no longer just a passing interest around his school. The Green Wave has won just 14 of 30 games the last two seasons, but Wall - also a highly successful softball coach - may have succeeded in arousing interest in the once-proud program. Instead of having 9 or 10 varsity and JV players, as he did the last two seasons, Wall now has 16 to choose from. "I can tell you right now that it's a blessing to have some depth on our roster," Wall said.

Don Borden takes the reins as head coach at Audubon High School this season after serving as an assistant for three years. He will be in a good position because four of the team's top six players are back from last season. The returning veterans may not make that much difference in the Green Wave's overall record, however, because of a tough Colonial Conference schedule. COACH. Borden takes over from Greg Ogden, who coached the Wave the last three seasons. Michael Narducci Jr., the son of Audubon's head football coach, will handle the junior varsity, and Dan Preziosi is the freshman coach.

Audubon High finished with an 11-11 record last season. Greg Ogden, the Green Wave's head coach, believes his club has the talent to break the .500 mark this season. And what's more, Ogden feels Audubon has a chance to be one of the best teams in the Colonial Conference. "I think at the end of last season, we weren't exactly sure how good we could be," Ogden said. "But we had a great summer in the Collingswood Basketball League," where they placed second. "Now, we definitely feel we can make it to the Group 1 playoffs.

This has been a season of great accomplishments for the Audubon girls' soccer team, one that has included a school record for wins, the 200th career victory for its head coach and the first sectional title in the 16-year history of the program. One has to wonder: What would have happened if the Green Wave had better health? Despite various injuries along the way, Audubon (19-3) will meet Shore (17-5-1) Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the state Group 1 semifinal at Eastern. One Audubon player who has overcome adversity is Maria Granato, who scored the winning goal with 12 seconds left in a 1-0 South Jersey Group 1 championship win over Haddon Heights.

Chelsea Fadio remembers the moment she found out about the Audubon girls' soccer scoring record. It was about 20 minutes before she broke it. "I walked up to my mom to get my drink at halftime," Fadio said. "And she told me I was one goal away. "I figured I should probably go out and try to score a goal. " She did. In a Sept. 29 win over Sterling, Fadio, just a junior, netted the 58th goal of her career, making her Audubon's all-time leading goal-scorer, breaking a mark set in 2003 by Noelle Bissinger.

Rich Carlucci has fashioned a baseball career that merits a long, leisurely look at his past. He prefers to gaze into the future. Carlucci will be inducted into the Camden County Hall of Fame on Oct. 30 in well-deserved recognition of his sensational work as a pitcher for Audubon High School in the mid-1970s. Carlucci was a three-time all-South Jersey selection and won 36 games in his career, pitching 18 shutouts. He was 13-0 as a senior in 1975, and led the Green Wave to their first state title.

The Audubon girls' basketball team has quietly elevated its program with some impressive individual and team achievements. And of course, one has led to the other. Before this season, the Green Wave hadn't had a 1,000-point scorer since Nicole Cannon in 2001. Then, in a span of less than two weeks, seniors Valerie Pineiro and Maddie Lord accomplished the feat. "It's pretty cool," said Pineiro, who will attend La Salle on a softball scholarship. Lord will cherish not only her milestone, but also how it was achieved.

The only other person on the field was his grandmother, Barbara. She smiled as she listened to the phone conversation. "We won the state championship," he said as casually as he had said hello.

Audubon's baseball team had just earned a hard-fought 4-1 win over Florence in the state Group 1 semifinals on Tuesday, and the players reacted as if it were an April win over a Colonial Conference foe. There was no jumping around, no yelling, no celebrating. Oh sure, the bus ride home no doubt had some cheering, but the Green Wave acted as if they had been there. And as anybody who knows the storied history of the program realizes, Audubon baseball has been there, time and time again.

EWING, N.J. - They are used to the drill, but that doesn't make the exercise any easier for Audubon's baseball program. The Green Wave earned their third straight trip to the state championship game with Tuesday's 4-1 win over Florence in the state Group 1 semifinal at the College of New Jersey. This score gives the appearance that it was a downright breather for Audubon compared to recent games, but that is awfully deceiving. Audubon winning pitcher Kevin Kraemer departed with the Green Wave leading by 4-1 and two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning.
