Haddon Township's wrestling team rarely loses to the same opponent two years in a row. Coach Miller Preston's Hawks emphasized that point yesterday with a 37-24 win over visiting Shawnee. Haddon Township (8-1) dropped a 39-27 decision to Shawnee last year. "Both coach Preston and (assistant) coach (Dave) Stanton reminded us of that before we came out for the match," said Township junior Brian Botcheos, who raised his season record to 9-3 with a 7-4 win over Brian Scioli at 152 pounds.

Bryan Friedrich looked as if he had just been in a prize fight. Eyes dazed and a cut between his eyebrows, the Haddon Township boys' soccer player was battered, but not beaten. Like a heavyweight contender, Friedrich battled back from a knockdown to deliver the shot that knocked Middle Township out of the South Jersey Group 2 playoffs. After suffering what was believed to be a slight concussion late in the first half, the senior scored a goal with 5 minutes, 5 seconds remaining to lead the Hawks to a 2-1 quarterfinal victory at the Panthers' field yesterday.

The summer runs were done not only for bonding, but also so Haddon Township's football team could improve on a difficult 2-8 season of 2011. So during the summer, the team ran together around the local communities, and one trek took them past Collingswood High. Every time the players passed the high school, it served as a reminder of what went wrong in 2011 and what could be rectified this year. Last season, Collingswood defeated the Hawks, 8-3, and so that was the only reminder the players had during those summer runs.

It was something old for Pat Burns. It was something new for Brendan Anderson. It added up to a 9-2 victory for Haddon Township over Haddon Heights in a Colonial Conference interdivision baseball clash Tuesday at the Garnets' Eighth Avenue Field. "Pat was Pat," Haddon Township coach Doug Richardson said in terse summation of Burns' performance on the mound and at the plate. Burns, a senior righthander, pitched a complete game with eight strikeouts and also was 2 for 4 with a double and triple and three RBIs as Haddon Township improved to 6-2 overall and 3-2 in the Colonial.

A four-acre tract donated by the Rohrer family to Haddon Township for use as a library was the center of controversy last night when the donor, Linda M. Rohrer, complained that the Township Commission had failed to act on her offer. Democratic Mayor William J. Park Jr. promised that the commission would reach a decision on developing the site within 30 days, and denied that the commission, which has a 2-1 Democratic majority, was deliberately stalling on the library. More than 75 residents turned out to listen and, in some cases, to comment on the community's need for a new library.

Ryan Easterday had a lively fastball and sharp curve. He also had a 5-0 lead before he took the mound. "That makes things a lot easier," Easterday said after leading Haddon Township to a 13-1 victory over Haddon Heights in a Colonial Conference baseball game Tuesday. Easterday, a senior righthander, pitched a two-hitter with six strikeouts in a game that ended after five innings because of the 10-run rule. Easterday also was 3 for 4 at the plate with a double, three-run homer, and four RBIs.

Mario Mandescu has stepped on a soccer field countless times in his career. Sunday will be different. "We can't lose," Mandescu said of the Group 1 state championship game between Haddon Township and Harrison at 3 p.m. Sunday at Kean University. There's no guarantee that Mandescu and his teammates will walk off the field with a victory and a state championship trophy. But this much is a lock: The game will mark the end of the line as high school players for Mandescu and his fellow seniors.

Imagine if Haddon Township's venerable Champion School had been torn down to make way for a 7-Eleven. That awful idea never got anywhere, thanks to Alfred Litwak and people who rallied behind him to save and restore the one-room schoolhouse. Now imagine this long-dormant building transformed into a setting for educational programs, historical reenactments, and social events. That could happen soon, thanks to Doug Kelly and his supporters. "The school already has been saved.

For years, planners and residents have been trying to understand why Haddon Township isn't more like Collingswood, the millennial enclave that is South Jersey's answer to Fairmount and East Passyunk. Situated side by side in Camden County, the two towns are old-school commuter suburbs, with small house lots, good sidewalks, and great transit to Center City. They even share a main street, Haddon Avenue, which runs through the center of both. The pair are models for what smart-growth advocates call walkable urbanism, but Collingswood's downtown is by far the buzzier place.

Luke Petela was more than 2,500 meters into his 3,200-meter race Saturday when he looked over his right shoulder. The Haddon Township senior wasn't checking to see how far the nearest competitor was behind him. He already knew. Petela turned to teammate Owen Long, who had stayed within a stride of him from the start. The two confirmed they would flip spots to take the wind off Petela. Long eventually told Petela to take the win, his third South Jersey Group 1 victory of the weekend at Egg Harbor Township.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities. It isn't as well known as Haddonfield or as hip as Collingswood, but these days Haddon Township is much more than a pass-through from one borough to the other. This Camden County community has a life of its own - from the businesspeople, retirees, and friends who start the day with breakfast at the Westmont Diner at Haddon and Maple Avenues to the long line for sticky buns Sunday mornings at the venerable McMillan's Bakery at Haddon Avenue and Cuthbert Boulevard.

When you're starting a lacrosse program, progress isn't always measured in milestones. With wins hard to come by, coach Ed McLaughlin looks for moments, even movements, that show that his Haddon Township boys' lacrosse team - in its first varsity season - is headed in the right direction. "We had a sequence in a game last week where the goalie makes a save. He makes a pass to a defenseman. The defenseman hits a middie breaking. He hits another middie breaking - then to an attackman who hits another attackman, and we score," McLaughlin said.
