There will be no repeat of 1983 for the field-hockey team at Springfield High School. Four years ago, the Spartans reached the pinnacle by winning the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Class AA state championship. But Tuesday night at Northern Lebanon High School, Springfield's dreams of a return to those magical times were shattered with a 3-1 loss to Millville in the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs. As has been their habit this year, the Spartans got off to a slow start.

Holy Spirit, ranked No. 3 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, toppled No. 1 Millville yesterday, 15-13, in what probably will be known for years as "The War at the Shore. " In a game in which so much rode on the outcome and in which the result was measured by only two points, nearly every play was critical. But two of them stood out. The first was a completed screen pass from Millville quarterback Bob Campbell to running back Scott Parent on an attempted two-point conversion late in the second quarter.

Andrew Biggs has 51 strikeouts in just 21 innings. But he's more than a pitcher. Biggs has four doubles, a triple, and a home run. But he's more than a hitter. "I like to think of myself as a two-way player," said Biggs, who has led Millville to an 8-2 record and No. 4 spot in The Inquirer's Top 10. "I've been blessed with talent as both a pitcher and a hitter. I like to do both. " Biggs said one reason he has made a commitment to attend Delaware State on a baseball scholarship is that the Hornets view him as an athlete who can play the field and stay in the lineup when he isn't pitching.

A plan to sell newly preserved land for development threatens to weaken public trust in New Jersey's open-space program. The state Department of Environmental Protection spent $335,000 to preserve an 81-acre site in Millville in 2013. Now city officials have persuaded the agency to sell the land to Millville or Cumberland County for commercial or industrial use. Curiously, there is no known buyer or use in the offing. City officials say the land has railroad access, making it potentially attractive to manufacturing firms.

MILLVILLE, N.J. - A vacant piece of land preserved under the state Green Acres program a year and a half ago that was previously zoned for industrial use - and is now part of one of the most pristine and critical forest tracts in the state - is at the center of a tug-of-war between environmentalists and city officials. Local officials want to buy back the site, known as the Durand Tract, from the state and remove it from preservation rolls so it can be sold for development. The property straddles the 474-acre Menantico Ponds Wildlife Management Area and a site zoned for commercial and industrial use. But environmentalists are contending that if the 81-acre parcel is taken out of the land preservation program, it would set a "dangerous" precedent that could open up protected lands to development - ultimately undermining the entire purpose of such state and federal set-asides.

ISSUE | ISIS ET AL Try containment Trudy Rubin, not surprisingly, has it just right regarding how to deal with the Islamic State, and more broadly the entire issue of violent destabilization, by suggesting that the long-term solution is not military ("Can Obama achieve his objectives in battle with ISIS?" Sept. 28). Limiting terrorism so effectively that it becomes of little concern requires creating an environment in which people are less desperate. As the rich get richer and the poor poorer, as the haves have more and the have-nots have even less, as the free abuse their liberty and the exploited see decreasing opportunity, the only direction in which the world will go is toward horrific environments.
