PISCATAWAY, N.J. - When it was all over on Sunday afternoon, Norm Ingram turned to the members of his first senior class and offered one more piece of advice. "Pick your heads up, fellas," the Winslow Township coach said. The five seniors had just finished their high school careers with a 59-50 loss to Teaneck in the NJSIAA state Group 3 final at Rutgers. Even lifting their heads looked as if it might cause too much pain. But the coach was right. The Eagles shook off an 11-14 regular season to reach the first state title game in program history.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - The Camden locker room was dead quiet. It was similar to the scene after a tough loss but far from it, too. This wasn't just any tough loss. Camden sat knowing it had just dropped its fourth straight NJSIAA title game, the third in that streak at the Group 2 level. On Sunday, it was West Side High School that captured its first Group 2 championship, 85-83, at the Rutgers Athletic Center. The loss sent the Panthers back to that familiar yet dismal place. "It was a good season.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - For the second year in a row, Paulsboro was in the state championship game against University. Sadly for the Red Raiders, the outcome was not the same as last season as the defending champions fell to the Phoenix, 63-45, in the NJSIAA Group 1 final at Rutgers on Sunday. It was a close game through the first quarter, but the last 24 minutes belonged to University. Paulsboro struggled with fighting through the Phoenix defense, committing turnover after turnover against its press defense.

TOUR GROUP 10 p.m. Tuesday, Bravo. Two episodes in, it seems safe to say Jared Levy is in the running for class flirt of Bravo's Tour Group . The 38-year-old Northeast Philly native, a financial adviser who graduated from George Washington High School ("I actually went to school with Kevin Hart"), has been particularly attentive to two of his fellow travelers, nonidentical twins named Misty and Jenna. But the fast-talking Levy, whose previous TV experiences involved talking about money, said he was interested in becoming a bit less guarded and careful when he agreed to be part of a group of 11 people chosen to see the world on Tour Group . Levy spoke recently about his experiences on the show, which airs at 10 p.m. Tuesdays: You introduced yourself on the show by saying, "If Steven Hawking had a baby with Snooki, I would probably be the product of that relationship.

WASHINGTON - With help from the kind of big-money political groups they have forcefully decried, the leading Democrats in the Pennsylvania race for the U.S. Senate have launched an air war, opening a new phase in their battle for the nomination. Katie McGinty unveiled her first broadcast ads this week, followed quickly by a pledge from EMILY's List, which backs Democratic women candidates, to spend $1 million on TV for her next month in Philadelphia. An independent super PAC backing rival Joe Sestak responded with a $250,000 ad buy. Its spot, which began airing Thursday, came just days after Sestak sent fund-raising emails criticizing the influence of such groups.
