Asked if he'd spent much time on the grass field at Moorestown stadium over the last several years, Damon Legato paused, looked around, and seemed to take it in one last time. "Nope," he said. "This is actually my first time back. " Legato, first-year coach of the Haddonfield boys' lacrosse team, was a decorated player for Moorestown in the early 1990s. He coached the team from 2000 to '05, leading the Quakers to South Jersey's first boys' lacrosse state championship in 2001.

Frank DeLano knows history as well as football. The Haddonfield coach knows his team had not beaten Camden in 80 years before a 45-19 victory in the South Jersey Group 2 semifinals on Nov. 23. He knows his team was playing Woodstown for the first time since 1928 in Saturday's South Jersey Group 2 title game. "We're just a little cog," DeLano said of his program's place in the big wheel of South Jersey football history. But since the creation of the state playoff system in 1974, there has never been a team quite like Haddonfield in 2013.

Haddonfield has maintained its status as South Jersey's last unbeaten baseball team, but the Bulldawgs needed a final-inning comeback to preserve their perfect season. Drew Dark's one-out, bases-loaded RBI single capped a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning during a 5-4 win over Sterling in a Colonial Conference nail-biter Friday. Ranked No. 6 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, the Bulldogs are now 16-0. Sterling fell to 6-9. "I was determined to get on by hit or walk," Dark said.

Since retiring as a Haddonfield lawyer in 2007, William V. Eisenberg was a voluntary counsel for the Camden Center for Law and Social Justice. "In our family-law department, he worked with clients on child support, child custody," said Jeffrey S. DeCristofaro, the attorney who is the firm's executive director. The nonprofit firm deals mostly with immigration and domestic-violence problems. DeCristofaro came to know Mr. Eisenberg as a soccer coach for a Haddonfield recreation league, when the future lawyer was 8 or 9 years old, and then as a teenage file clerk in an Eisenberg law firm.

RIO DE JANEIRO - Day One of Olympic track and field was Almaz Ayana's time to sparkle. The 24-year-old Ethiopian lowered the world and Olympic records at 10,000 meters to 29 minutes, 17.45 seconds, crushing the field in blazing to the first track gold medal of the Games. It was Molly Huddle's day, too. The Notre Dame grad out of Elmira, N.Y., 31, ran one of the greatest distance races ever by a U.S. woman at the Games. Her sixth-place finish in 30:13:17 is an American record, and she trailed only two runners from Ethiopia and three from Kenya in winning the unofficial championship of the rest of the world beyond East Africa.

Sidewalk sale Haddonfield's August sidewalk sale has taken place longer than organizer Remi Fortunato can remember. As the retail recruiter for the Partnership for Haddonfield, Fortunato estimated that the borough's end-of-season tradition dated at least to 1969, the first summer Jay West bridal salon was in business. The event always begins on the first Thursday of the month - which, said Fortunato, never seems to stop early birds from seeking deals Wednesday evening. The sale ends Sunday.

As Argenis Calderon's face has appeared on movie screens in New York City and across New Jersey, audiences have watched him play baseball in Camden's Pyne Poynt Park, navigate a tumultuous home life, graduate high school near the top of his class, and prepare to attend college. Since then viewers of Pyne Poynt , a documentary released this year about the North Camden Little League, have often approached Calderon at screenings, some with tears in their eyes, to tell him that his story inspired them.

Hall will be the first African American runner to represent the United States in the Olympic 10,000, "and that's very meaningful to me," she said.

"When they pulled up the rug," Deborah Marchand says, "they found this . " We're admiring a glorious terrazzo floor under the rotunda of the Haddonfield Public Library, where a $2.2 million, 15-month restoration, renovation, and repurposing project is nearly complete. The goal, library board president Marchand adds, was "to take what had been a fairly inflexible space and make it more flexible and open and welcoming. " Haddonfield has done all that and then some: A sneak peek last week left me impressed by how seamlessly the old has been freshened up and blended with the new inside the Monticello-esque landmark at Tanner Street and Haddon Avenue.

As a workers' compensation defense lawyer, Michael Huber "was a little like Jimmy Stewart, very earnest, like a Boy Scout," his Haddonfield law partner William T. Freeman said. Freeman recalled that in one case, Mr. Huber won a decision before the New Jersey Workers' Compensation Court in Camden. But while Mr. Huber was away, an appellate court "very promptly reversed" the decision, Freeman said, "because of him, because he wasn't there to argue it. " And because of his Stewartian earnestness, Freeman said, Mr. Huber was "someone you could trust with the most delicate of personal information without any fear.

On the outside, everything seemed the same this season for Briana Gess. On the inside, she said, everything was different. "This was such a growing year for me," said Gess, a junior at Haddonfield High School and the Inquirer's South Jersey athlete of the year for girls' track and field. As usual, Gess showed herself to be one of the state's most versatile and valuable middle- and long-distance runners. She won three events at the South Jersey Group 2 sectional meet.

BAYVILLE, N.J. - Briana Gess has been racing for most of her life. She is used to tough competition. She is used to winning, too - especially in the 1,600 meters in the Meet of Champions. This was something new. This was a step-for-step, elbow-to-elbow sprint between Gess, a Hadddonfield junior, and Freehold Township senior Ciara Roche for the final 100 meters of the event at Central Regional High School. "I've never been in a race like that," Gess said after her dramatic victory.
