John Majane hoped for more than a decade that his daughter, who was 15 when he last saw her in Moorestown, N.J., had simply run away. But Carolyn Majane was pretty, popular and happy. And aside from the usual struggles of growing up with four brothers, she had no reason to vanish on her own. "I always hoped that she was alive," said John Majane, a self-employed engineer who now lives with his family in Bethesda, Md. "But after so many years and so many holidays went by without so much as a phone call, I started to realize that she must be dead.

After every Moorestown goal, the Quakers players who weren't on the field ran along the sideline, stopped at the end, and ran back to where they had been standing with their coaches. It was a way for the bench guys to get involved in the game, fired up, and supporting their teammates. But their coach suspects there was another reason. "I think they were cold and they tried to warm up a little bit," Moorestown's Baron Wallenhurst said. The players ran back and forth nine times as the Quakers cruised to a 9-3 lacrosse victory Saturday against visiting Hill School (Pa.)

The season was young, but Thomas Farrior thought Willingboro's habit of losing close games was getting old. "We had to figure out a way to win games like this," said Farrior, Willingboro's versatile senior guard. Farrior had 18 points, six rebounds, and four steals as Willingboro beat Moorestown, 74-72, Thursday in overtime in a Burlington County League interdivision boys' basketball game. Senior forward Terique Robinson also scored 18 and made the only bucket in overtime for Willingboro (5-3)

A coaching milestone and a trip to a championship game will be on the line for the Moorestown boys' soccer team Sunday in the semifinals of the South Jersey Coaches Tournament. The Quakers got there by beating Timber Creek, 1-0, in a quarterfinal defensive struggle Saturday, giving coach Mike Sutcliffe his 299th win in a career that goes back to 1990. Ninth-seeded Moorestown will play Lenape, a Friday winner over Haddon Heights, at 2 p.m. at Eastern. Michael Handlan scored the game's lone goal in the 79th minute, winning a race to a loose ball in the box after a failed clearing attempt.

The Traganza property is finally in the hands of Moorestown. The 34 acres on Garwood Road are "some of the most prestigious and pristine property in town," said Dennis Talty, the township solicitor. "It has woods, streams, wildlife. It's really environmentally sensitive. " Township officials had been "pursuing this property for a long, long time," Talty said. Late last week, negotiations were completed to buy the land for $350,000 from PNC Bank, the trustee and executor of Robert and Mary Traganza's estate.

Moments before the first goal, a Moorestown assistant coach shook his head and threw his hands in the air. "That's the story of our season," he said as West Deptford's RJ Eckley lined up for a penalty kick, after Moorestown was whistled for a handball in the 18-yard box. Such was the way the game went Saturday morning as third-seeded West Deptford beat No. 14 Moorestown, 2-1, in the first round of the boys' soccer Coaches Tournament. The game featured several fitting examples of the frustration felt by Moorestown (7-5-1)

After sharing a state Group 2 championship last season, the Moorestown field hockey didn't take any chances on settling for another tie yesterday when it made a repeat appearance in the title game. The Quakers (21-1), ranked No. 4 team in The Inquirer South Jersey top 10, overpowered Wallkill Valley, 4-1, in a game played at Trenton State College. The victory gave coach Joan Lewis her fifth state title in 10 years at Moorestown. "We wanted to come up here and win big," said Lewis, who reminded her team before the game about last year's 1-1 tie with Westwood.

Moorestown coach Bill Donoghue warned his baseball team about the dangers of playing Cinnaminson, and he saw nothing but puzzled looks. After all, Moorestown had pummeled the Pirates, 18-0, on April 8. Donoghue knew what he was talking about. Moorestown escaped with a 2-1 victory yesterday over Cinnaminson in the Burlington County League Liberty Division. Moorestown, which finished last season 6-14, improved to 8-2 overall and 5-1 in the Liberty. Cinnaminson, which starts only two seniors, fell to 6-7, 4-4.

It was a defensive performance worthy of a legendary linebacker. With Pro Football Hall of Famer Dave Robinson in the house, Moorestown's defense put together a nearly flawless effort in a 7-0 victory over Seneca on Thursday night in the West Jersey Football League opener for both teams. "The strength of our team," new Quakers coach Beau Sherry said of a defense that allowed just two first downs and shut down Seneca's running game. On a rainy night when Moorestown retired Robinson's No. 89 jersey at halftime, the Quakers overcame the elements and the Golden Eagles' sturdy defense with a late touchdown on a 50-yard pass from senior Tyreek Robinson to senior wide receiver Brandon Hammons.

Delaware-bound senior Michael Handlan scored four goals, including the winner in overtime, as Moorestown survived a scare from visiting Pingry and won, 8-7, in a nonleague boys' lacrosse game Thursday afternoon. Handlan's heroics were made possible by Robert Kuhn, who had tied the score with 32 seconds remaining in regulation. Handlan, who delivered the final score with a little more than two minutes remaining in overtime, also chipped in with an assist, and Andrew Helfman made 16 saves for the Quakers.

Nick Ellis met Joe Diaco in third grade, on a lacrosse field in West Deptford. When Ellis moved on to St. Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia for high school, Diaco went to Bishop Eustace. The schools never felt right for either player. After two seasons, Ellis wanted to play for his hometown team. He wanted to play with his best friends, the kids with whom he grew up. "I had been thinking about transferring," said Ellis, who did transfer, along with Diaco, to West Deptford last year for his junior season.

It's an odd number, befitting a brawny linebacker on the football field more than a graceful athlete in girls' lacrosse. Marie McCool doesn't look like a No. 51. Unless you know the history of that number for the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team - how it has been a tradition for that jersey to be passed down from one top player to another and how this No. 51 and that No. 51 have led the Quakers to state title after state title. But here's the thing: McCool doesn't look like the other No. 51s, either.

MOORESTOWN Faced with a revenue shortfall of $4 million, Moorestown's Board of Education adopted a preliminary budget for the 2014-15 school year Tuesday that calls for laying off about a dozen teachers, adds fees for students to participate in clubs, sports, and theater, and to park their cars, and imposes a property-tax hike. The proposed budget of $62.3 million would be $1.5 million, or 2.5 percent, larger than this year's, with contractually obligated increases in salaries and benefits a major contributor.

Being seeded five spots below his opponent from the host school didn't deter Moorestown's Will Corbi on Wednesday night.

Corbi advances to face No. 3 Anthony Foggia of Northern Burlington. Also at 106, No. 9 Evan Finnegan (Haddonfield) scored a 10-1 major decision over Maple Shade's Cullen McClintock, the eighth seed.

Ryan Caffrey hadn't had a good night's sleep in over a week. "I would wake up at 3 in the morning just thinking about this match - I couldn't wait for it," said Caffrey, a senior on the Moorestown boys' swim team. Every year of his high school swimming career, Caffrey had gotten one step closer to a state title. The Quakers lost in the sectional final when Caffrey was a freshman, made it deeper his sophomore year, and lost in last year's state championship. Sunday afternoon, the Quakers took the next logical step with a dramatic, 87-83 win over Princeton in the Public B state final at the College of New Jersey.

To the surprise of CBS Radio's engineers and lawyer, only six area residents turned out Tuesday for an informational meeting on the broadcast giant's plan to build a radio transmission tower on North Church Street in Moorestown. "Did we put the right time?" lawyer Louis D'Arminio asked one of his colleagues as they stood at 7:05 p.m. in the conference room of the Lenola Fire Hall, waiting for a crowd that never materialized. Homeowners and business owners near the company's 50,000-watt tower have complained for decades that its signal interferes with their telephones, TV, and radio reception, and even emanates from such unlikely sources as electrical outlets and switches, bathtubs, and radiators.
