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 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.

JUST TO LOOK OVER the delicacies that Catherine Sullivan specialized in is to regret that you were never invited to her home for dinner. Try manicotti, clams and spaghetti, crabs and spaghetti, or lamb and spaghetti, often served at her beach house in Ship Bottom, N.J., with the sound of the surf and the gentle sea breeze at the window. If you notice an Italian flavor to her menu, it's understandable, since her maiden name was Garofalo. "Catherine may have been the matriarch of the Sullivan Clan, but she knew her Italian cooking," her family said.

Richard L. Baker was among more than 30 men who for years have attended a weekly Bible study class at the First Presbyterian Church in Moorestown. "He never missed it.
