Sitting on the bench before his name was announced, C.J. Barnes was nearly overcome with emotion. Standing a few feet away, his coach had the same feeling. "As a coach, something like that brings tears to your eyes," Holy Spirit coach Jamie Gillespie said. "Knowing how hard he worked, for him to have that moment, that's what it's all about. " Barnes, a standout player for the Spartans as a sophomore and junior, made a dramatic return to the court last Friday against rival Atlantic City.

This wasn't a night when anybody was going to bust loose for 25 or 30 points with a lot of smooth moves and sweet finishes. Not the way both teams were playing defense. Not the way the whistles kept stopping the flow of the showdown between Atlantic City and Holy Spirit before a capacity-plus crowd on the Spartans' home court. But for Atlantic City sophomore Ray Bethea, his team's 56-46 victory still marked something of a breakout game. The 6-foot-4 Bethea generated 14 points, eight rebounds, and four steals, flashing the kind of athleticism that has veteran coach Gene Allen imagining the possibilities in the future.

PASTOR RICK WARREN, author of the The Purpose Driven Life , opened the final keynote session of the World Meeting of Families yesterday by quoting a song popularized by Rod Stewart. "Have I told you lately that I loved you?" he asked the audience. And, like aging women at a Rod Stewart concert, the crowd went wild for the rock-star pastor. Warren, whose 2002 book was a New York Times best-seller, joined Cardinal Sean O'Malley, archbishop of Boston, to give the final keynote of the eighth and largest World Meeting, which was held this week at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Rashon Lusane has strong ties to Norristown High School. His father, Rod, and brother, Rasheed, played football and wrestled for the Eagles. Rashon played the same sports as a freshman and sophomore at Norristown before transferring to Malvern Prep. "The opportunity presented itself," he said. "Nothing against Norristown, but I would have been a fool not to take advantage of it. " It was an opportunity that Lusane created. After falling short of the required entrance-exam grade for Malvern as an eighth-grader at Eisenhower Middle School, he excelled in the classroom at Norristown, with a 3.8 grade-point average, and passed on his second try. "Academically, going from Norristown to Malvern, was like night and day," Lusane said.

"Proms, graduations, college plans," Holy Spirit coach Steve Normane said of the distractions that can sway the concentration of senior athletes in the last sports season of the school year. And that's in the best of times. It's even tougher when a baseball team starts 1-7. But Holy Spirit's seven seniors kept their focus and kept their team together, too. The result was one of the more remarkable seasons in South Jersey baseball history, as Holy Spirit won the Non-Public B state title with a 14-16 record.
