First, Holy Spirit lost its lead. Then, its quarterback. But the Spartans won't lose their grip on The Inquirer's No. 1 football ranking in South Jersey. And for that, Holy Spirit can thank its defense. In a game in which both teams scored on their first possessions, Holy Spirit used a tried and true formula to defeat host Millville, 16-7, Friday night in a Cape-Atlantic League American Conference matchup. The formula included some of the surest tackling one could see on a high school field.

When one of his teammates went down with the injury, Uumhad Collier could sympathize. He also could capitalize. Thrust into the starting lineup for the first time in 22 months, Collier set career highs with seven three-pointers and 25 points in leading Holy Spirit to a 64-57 victory over Paulsboro in a clash of Top-10 boys' basketball teams Saturday at the American Basketball Classic at St. Augustine. "I knew I had to step up," Collier, a 5-foot-10 senior guard, said after sparking the Spartans past the Red Raiders in a fast-paced, physical battle that served as the feature event of the five-game showcase.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - There's a showdown in a couple of weeks with rival St. Joseph's of Hammonton. There's another a challenger or two, like perennial power Hammonton, lurking down the road in the revamped Cape-Atlantic League. And there always are the Non-Public 3 playoffs, which likely will include improved Camden Catholic as well as North Jersey powers St. Joseph's of Montvale and Immaculata. But it's looking as if there's another team against which the 2010 Holy Spirit football team will be measured: The 2007 Holy Spirit team.

In emphatic fashion, the Holy Spirit boys' basketball team has earned the top seed in the Non-Public A tournament. Senior guard B.J. Bailey scored 19 points as Holy Spirit defeated St. Augustine, 72-49, last night in front of an overflow crowd in Atlantic City's Battle By the Bay. Both teams knew beforehand that the winner would earn the top seed, since yesterday was the playoff cutoff day. Unofficially, St. Augustine will be the fourth...

Roman went 35-9 and guided the Spartans to consecutive state titles the past two seasons. From 2004-06, Iannucci was the coach at Cherry Hill East, and during his final season, he guided the Cougars to a 6-4 record.

Holy Spirit, the top-ranked team in The Inquirer's Top 10, started its season with a 40-13 romp over Oakcrest last night before more than 3,500 fans. But the Spartans' victory did not materialize the way they envisioned it would. Playing under its new lights for the first time, Holy Spirit had to rally in the first half after falling behind, 7-0, in the first three minutes. Then, Spirit had to wait 25 minutes for an ambulance to arrive when senior linebacker Ryan Mastro broke his leg. Eventually, rather than continue waiting, the officials called for halftime with 90 seconds still left in the first half.

Apparently, all that Mainland needed to finally beat Holy Spirit was the overtime rule put in by the NJSIAA this year. The host Mustangs knocked off the Spartans last night for the first time since 1966, winning, 35-28, on a 12-yard touchdown run by Tony DeSalle in the first overtime period. Mainland had gone 0-23-1 against Holy Spirit since the 1966 victory. The teams did not meet from 1989-92. DeSalle also led the way for the Mustangs in regulation. His 7-yard run gave Mainland a 7-0 lead with 9:17 left in the first period.

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.

It's not easy for seniors to stick with a struggling squad. Especially not in the spring. "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.
