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 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.

WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - When the last second ticked off the first-half clock, Jessica Goralski was prepared for another 25 minutes of dutifully cheering on her teammates from the sideline. Goralski, a freshman goalie for the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team, had yet to see the field. She was expecting more of the same when coach Deanna Knobloch approached her. "Jess," Knobloch said. "You're going in. " And that was it. It was halftime of the Group 3 championship. The game was tied.

There was a period before high school when Quinn Nicolai briefly considered giving up lacrosse. She wanted to play softball. Looking back, it was almost like an out-of-body experience - as if she forgot, for a moment, what town she lived in. "My parents couldn't believe it," said Nicolai, a junior midfielder on the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team who, before this season, was chosen to wear the Quakers' storied No. 51 jersey. "They were just like, 'There's no way we're going to watch you play softball.' " Nicolai's neighbor and best friend - the girl who lives right around the corner from her - is Marie McCool.

Extreme weather, compacted soil, and wayward vehicles make it tough to be a tree on the streets of South Jersey. Age takes its toll as well, particularly in the signature canopies of older communities such as Haddonfield, Moorestown, and Woodbury, where even mighty oaks can't live forever. Diseases such as "ash yellows" and "bacterial leaf scorch" are decimating certain tree populations in some places. And as if all those woes aren't bad enough, there's the emerald ash borer. This pernicious insect, whose larvae are sucking the life from tens of millions of ash trees in the eastern United States, showed up about two years ago in Somerset County.

St. Augustine coach J.C. Valore thought the game changed when his team made "some adjustments" in defensive alignment, won a few face-offs and placed greater value on offensive possession. Moorestown coach Baron Wallenhurst looked at things in simpler terms. "Charlie Kitchen started playing," Wallenhurst said with a shrug, attributing the dramatic shift in momentum to the remarkable work of St. Augustine's senior attackman. St. Augustine's 14-9 victory over host Moorestown in a fast-paced, high-scoring clash of the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in South Jersey on Wednesday was a group effort.

Midway through the second half, the turf field at Moorestown High School turned into a scene from The Perfect Storm . A slight breeze became raging gusts. And rain, which had held off for most of the game, poured down in sheets. The wind was blowing hard against the Moorestown girls' lacrosse team. And it took the Quakers' momentum with it. Moorestown held a two-goal advantage when the storm hit but was outscored, 6-0, in the final 17 minutes in a 12-8 loss to North Jersey rival Ridgewood on Saturday.

A plan to reopen wells in Moorestown that were shut because of contamination is drawing continuing resistance from a group of residents. Two wells in the Burlington County township were shut down because they were found to be tainted by the chemical 1,2,3-trichloropropane (TCP). Township Manager Scott Carew said Moorestown officials have proposed an interim treatment plan to the state Department of Environmental Protection that will reduce harmful compounds like TCP in the wells.

Like so many other facets of the Moorestown girls' lacrosse program, Deanna Knobloch sounded as if she was on repeat. Another accolade, another milestone, another historic moment - more praise that the veteran coach never seems to acknowledge. On Wednesday, Knobloch logged the 500th victory of her 23-year career as head coach of the Quakers in a 15-3 win over Clearview. She'd been asked about it ad nauseam in the weeks leading up. And most who asked received a similar answer.

An obscure ethics board in an upscale South Jersey town hastily scheduled a rare special meeting last week to take care of some very old unfinished business. The Moorestown Township Ethical Standards Board announced it would meet "in the Town Hall Donut Room" on Wednesday and noted its first order of business would be to approve the minutes of its Oct. 24, 2012 meeting. Why the rush now? Last month, a government watchdog sued the town in state Superior Court for refusing to let him read the minutes.

Moorestown senior Alex Martin saw very little training heading into the Meet of Champions. Martin said he was probably in the pool only eight or nine times in the last two months because of illnesses. He got back to practices about three weeks ago. After getting some preparation in for the championships, Martin came down with the flu last week. But when the 100-yard backstroke came up Sunday afternoon, the senior didn't look affected one bit. Martin finished in 49.74 seconds, only .28 seconds off his 2015 best, en route to his third straight state title.
