For the second straight year, one of the rising sophomores in South Jersey is transferring to the Lawrenceville School in Mercer County. Aaron Washington, a 6-foot-7 forward/center who averaged 11 points and seven rebounds as a freshman for Moorestown Friends, is headed to Lawrenceville. Last year, guard Adam Payton transferred to Lawrenceville after being named to the all-Burlington County League Freedom Division team as a freshman at Burlington Township. "I thought it was a really good opportunity for me," Washington said.

At first glance, there is no hint of trouble on this quiet, prestigious high school campus where students, breaking between classes, toss baseballs or soak up the first strong rays of the spring sun. Certainly there is nothing to suggest that students, faculty and administrators at the Lawrenceville School, which prides itself on rock-solid stability, are locked in debate over one of the most volatile issues of the day. But suddenly, the...

It's tough enough to face a team that runs a single-wing offense, but it's even harder when three two-way starters are out with injuries. Throw in 110 yards in penalties and it becomes downright scary. But Valley Forge Military Academy survived all that in taking a 20-13 victory over the Lawrenceville School on Saturday. It was the Trojans' second consecutive win in New Jersey, and it came with Reuben White (running back/defensive back), Jim Judge (lineman) and John Massaro (center/linebacker)

Much goes into perfecting a solar farm. There are metal beams and motors and highly technical programming that shifts panels for optimal sun exposure - and the technology is constantly advancing. But the latest additions to some solar sites in New Jersey are a bit more primal. They have four legs, hooves, and a hankering for grass and clover. You may have heard of them: sheep. On at least three sites in the state, the animals have proven to be handy counterparts for the energy systems by acting as landscapers around the solar arrays - further reducing harmful emissions by eliminating the need for lawn mowers and weed whackers.

Keith Braxton believes he's a Division I college basketball player. He's going to take another year to prove it. Braxton, a Delsea senior and first-team all-South Jersey selection, plans to spend next year at the Lawrenceville School as a post-graduate. He hopes the experience will lead to a Division I scholarship offer. "I didn't want to give up on my dream of playing at the Division I level," Braxton said on Thursday night. Braxton led Delsea to a 24-6 record and the South Jersey Group 3 title game.

No matter what defense it tried, the Valley Forge Military Academy basketball team could not stop Lawrenceville School's offense in a Wednesday afternoon nonleague game. Lawrenceville hit six 3-pointers, three in each half, in defeating the Trojans, 74-63. Pat Wright led Valley Forge (5-8) with 27 points, while Jamey O'Connell scored 14 and Daymon Anderson had 12. "We tried matchup zones and everything else, but we could not stop their outside shooting," Valley Forge coach Frank Guthridge said.

Haverford School could have prepared for Lawrenceville School's single-wing offense by ordering some old Notre Dame highlight films, circa Knute Rockne. Instead, the Fords took the normal tack, which wasn't good enough. After a few days of having backups run the single wing against the first-team defense, Haverford School went up against the real thing Saturday and came out on the short end of a 20-6 score at Lawrenceville. "It's really difficult to prepare for the first time you see it," Haverford School coach Paul Bernstorf said.

Episcopal Academy worked diligently to get ready for Saturday's opponent, Lawrenceville School, which runs the almost-extinct single-wing offense. Episcopal coaches scouted the Big Red three times, and the players practiced against simulated Lawrenceville offenses every day last week. It wasn't enough. Powerful Lawrenceville (2-1), a team that features 14 players who weigh 200 pounds or more, beat Episcopal (1-2) by 35-10 in a nonleague football game. To their credit, the Churchmen did not panic against the Big Red's array of trick plays, which stemmed from the no-quarterback, three-running back set. However, the Churchmen suffered from execution problems that hurt them on several big passing plays by Lawrenceville.

After nearly stumbling Saturday night against the Lawrenceville School, Episcopal Academy rolled to an easy victory in the final game of the 20th annual Hill School Tournament, defeating the host school Sunday, 86-52. The Churchmen (5-0) took a 40-28 lead into halftime in the semifinal game against Lawrenceville but played sluggishly down the stretch and barely hung on to win, 64-61. Lawrenceville's pressure defense created steals and Episcopal turnovers as the Churchmen were outscored, 22-13, in the harrowing fourth quarter.
