Lower Cape May High School has voluntarily withdrawn from the NJSIAA boys' basketball tournament, it was confirmed yesterday by Richard Strauss, the school district superintendent. The Tigers had qualified for the Group 2 tournament by scoring an 81-77 win over Southern Prep of Egg Harbor in a hastily arranged game on Tuesday. The win gave Lower Cape May an 8-8 record at Tuesday's cutoff date. Teams with a .500-or-better record qualify for the tourney. Lower Cape May officials said they added the game to the team's schedule on Monday in an attempt to give the Tigers a chance to qualify for the tournament.

The Cape-Atlantic League has realigned for football, creating a heavyweight division with its nine strongest programs over the last two seasons. The other division has the league's nine weakest programs, at least based on power points over the last two seasons. "You're never going to cook chicken soup that all 18 schools are going to like," said Mainland athletic director Mike Gatley, the league's president. The new American Division has the nine teams that earned the most playoff power points in 2010 and 2011: Holy Spirit, Hammonton, St. Joseph, Millville, Atlantic City, Egg Harbor Township, Oakcrest, Absegami, and Mainland.

The phone rang around 9 p.m. It was the night before a game, and another reporter wanted to talk to Lauren Holden about another impending milestone. The questions were predictable: Is it a distraction? Is it on your mind? Is it hard to block out such a big achievement? Is it tough to sleep? Holden laughed. To her, these all seemed far-fetched. "No," she said. "Right now I'm actually just trying to finish my homework. " Others shower praise on Holden, the speedy, energetic scoring machine, 15 points away from becoming South Jersey girls' basketball's 25th 2,000-point scorer.

Paulsboro's Ron Gentile could have wrestled for a region title last season. He was 29-4 at 126 pounds and had high expectations entering his freshman postseason. Then he broke his right ankle. With less than a week before the district tournament, Gentile (33-1) suffered a season-ending fracture while rolling around with a coach at practice, preventing him from trying to meet those high expectations, which included both a district and region title. "Yeah, it was very disappointing," Gentile said.
