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.

The spur-of-the-moment decision to move sophomore defenseman Nicki Dadino up to midfield during a corner shot worked for the Moorestown field hockey team. Receiving the ball near the right post of Shawnee's cage from senior midfielder Rachel Stefano, Dadino placed the ball perfectly to the left side. Scoring her first high school goal, she helped give the host Quakers a 2-1 win over an old rival, the Renegades, in a nonleague matchup Wednesday. "I had a gut feeling inside of me that it was going to come right to me," Dadino said.

Gavin Bright and Matt Hendrickson are slick, athletic soccer players. In space, they might be the most dangerous combination in South Jersey. They're smart and creative and lightning-quick on and off the ball. That is what makes the Clearview seniors one of the area's most highly touted offensive duos. But, as they point out, it's not necessarily what makes them winners. Winning a big game, Bright said, is all about composure. "To be completely honest, you just can't overthink it," Bright added.

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.

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 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.

A contaminant not currently regulated by drinking-water standards has been found in Moorestown's water supply, causing town officials to shut down two of its primary wells. The chemical, 1,2,3-trichloropropane, is a man-made and persistent substance used for paint removal and other purposes. It has been classified a "likely" carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Moorestown Township Manager D. Scott Carew said Thursday that the decision to shut the wells was made Monday after advice from the state Department of Environmental Protection.

The Latin phrase engraved in decorative medallions on the new Moorestown Library was supposed to inspire. The building's planners thought its translation was: "We confirm all things twice. " Apparently, they didn't . . . confirm all things twice, that is. The Latin words - Nos Secundus Coniecto Omnia - actually mean "we second-guess all," which is what some critics have been doing lately. Not to worry, though. Moorestown Mayor Chris Chiacchio said two medallions with the incorrect phrase would be replaced with an appropriate motto yet to be determined.

Sgt. William McGovern of the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office has had at least six traffic accidents from 1989 through last year, when he fatally struck off-duty Moorestown Officer Craig Berner, motor vehicle records show. In 1989, a Mount Laurel officer reported he suspected McGovern had been drinking before striking another car with his vehicle late one night and leaving the scene. Last year after the accident that killed Berner, according to Moorestown police reports, McGovern left the scene on Westfield Avenue, and three officers documented that he smelled of alcohol when he returned.

When Grace Kim became more serious about tennis in middle school, she knew she had to go into every match with intensity. So she developed a routine. The Moorestown Friends sophomore makes sure she stretches and then jumps rope to get her heart rate going. Oh, and while she does that, she talks to herself. Not in her head or at a volume that only she can hear. She said "everyone" hears her. "They just think I'm really crazy most of the time," Kim said with a laugh. "It's a little crazy, but I always say to myself that no matter what is going to happen, I have to play like I practice.

High school athletes should never underestimate the impact they can have on youngsters. When she was younger, Moorestown senior field hockey player Rachel Stefano looked up to the players from the high school who volunteered and coached her in the recreation program. Now, no doubt, many current grade-school youngsters look up to Stefano. Stefano volunteers her time by helping coach the kids in the rec program on Sundays. "I remember when I was little, the high school girls would coach me, and they were so good and I wanted to be like them one day," Stefano said after a key 4-1 win over Northern Burlington earlier this week.

With three weeks to go before Moorestown's second annual Sean Fischel 5K Run, Kim Fischel stepped to a bookshelf in her home and took down a glass-sided box. Inside was a pair of small, gray-and-orange running shoes. Even empty, they suggested energy and play, as though waiting for a little boy to fill them. "Sean learned to tie his shoes on these," Fischel said as three of her friends leaned forward in their chairs to study this memento of Sean, who died last year at 7. The room fell silent.
