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...

John Iannucci, former football coach at Cherry Hill East, has been named coach at Holy Spirit. Iannucci replaces Chalie Roman, who resigned after the season and will be the offensive coordinator at St. Augustine under new coach Mark Reardon, his longtime friend and former Holy Spirit classmate. 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.

Greg Lister, an outstanding two-way football player at Oakcrest High last year who is attending Holy Spirit this year, has been declared ineligible for football and basketball by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association. The 6-foot-2 senior threw for more than 1,000 yards as the Falcons' quarterback last year and was the leading scorer on the basketball team.

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.

Ralph Paolone has a small collection of Pat D'Arcy pictures hanging in his wrestling gym. The Holy Spirit coach has photos of D'Arcy on the podium after four District 32 titles, two Region 8 championships, and two top-three finishes in the state tournament. One of the few items that was missing, however, is a picture of D'Arcy smiling. So, it was understandable that Paolone, a lawyer, didn't get much work done Tuesday. He had to print out and prepare his missing masterpiece.

C.J. LaFragola reeled off a list of successful former high school wrestlers from his area. Billy and Cory Damiana from Lower Cape May, Mac Mancuso from Holy Spirit, Rob Semprevivo from Pinelands, and Hammonton's Dave Williams. LaFragola didn't mention them for the purpose of naming his inspirations or role models. They are the guys he practices against. The St. Joseph senior has only nine other wrestlers on his team and just two others near his weight class. To develop into a state-caliber wrestler, he had to find the necessary competition to reach the next level.
