SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J. ? The ceasefire was short.

Paul Anzano, the NJSIAA's legal counsel, is working behind the scenes to prevent a bill from gaining approval in the state Senate. The bill could change high school sports in New Jersey. "We have a lot of friends in the legislature," Anzano said at the NJSIAA's monthly meeting yesterday. "We're talking to state senators and educating them on the issue. " The state Assembly, by a 41-29 vote, recently approved legislation that would prohibit New Jersey public schools from joining athletic associations that charge "exorbitant ticket prices" for playoff games.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - The good news for the NJSIAA is that the organization lost $33,692 during the school year that ended in June. That's good news because the NJSIAA, governing body of high school sports in New Jersey, had projected a shortfall of more than $260,000. "We're changing our model," NJSIAA executive director Steve Timko said after the NJSIAA's monthly executive committee meeting this week. "We made substantial cuts, but we've been able to provide much the same services.

The NJSIAA penalized the Holy Cross wrestling team for its decision to take part in both the Beast of the East tournament in Delaware and the Jackson Invitational on Dec. 18. "We told [Holy Cross officials] that they will have to forfeit their team points that they got in the Jackson tournament," Steven J. Timko, an NJSIAA assistant director, said yesterday. "They will also have to submit a corrective action plan. " But, after being told that the Jackson tourney did not keep team scoring, Timko said Holy Cross would only have to submit a corrective action plan.

Camden High School football star Sean Chandler says there's sometimes a lot of trash talking on the field. "It motivates some people and bothers some people," Chandler said. Starting this fall, athletes and coaches will be subject to new rules designed to discourage unsportsmanlike behavior, the organization that oversees high school sports in New Jersey announced Wednesday. Under a policy developed by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association and the state Attorney General's Office and its Division on Civil Rights, officials will enforce rules designed to crack down on harassing conduct related to race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religion.

Several boys' basketball matchups in the approaching NJSIAA tournament have been changed, a spokeswoman for the athletic association confirmed yesterday. They have been altered in Group 3, which will start its tournament Feb. 26, and in the Parochial B tournament, to begin Feb. 29. In the original Group 3 bracket, Delsea was seeded sixth, Timber Creek seventh, Camden eighth and Central ninth. All four have new seedings, changing their matchups. "Delsea was misplaced and should have been ninth, based on its winning percentage" of .647, said Carol Parsons, the NJSIAA's associate director.

In response to popular demand, the NJSIAA has formulated a plan to move sectional-title games in boys' and girls' basketball back to neutral sites. But the change might not happen until 2016, if at all, NJSIAA director Larry White, who oversees the sport for the organization, said Thursday. "That might be a more practical start for this," White said of 2016's being the appropriate time to implement his plan to stage sectional finals for boys' and girls' basketball at one college site in a format similar to the public-school football finals.

Delsea's Sal Marchese, one of South Jersey's most successful football coaches, has been placed on administrative leave pending a Board of Education investigation into possible academic misconduct, a source close to the situation told The Inquirer on Friday. Marchese has been Delsea's coach for 21 seasons. He was named the Brooks Irvine Memorial Football Club's Coach of the Year after last season, when Delsea won its second consecutive South Jersey Group 3 championship. The administrative leave, a suspension with pay, stems from accusations of irregularities in testing in a health and physical education class in November, the source said.

Timber Creek junior defensive back Kareem Ali has played in a lot of big football games in his career with the Chargers. He'll play in perhaps the biggest one when his final season is over. Ali last week was invited to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl next January in San Antonio. "It's a dream come true," Ali said. "I grew up dreaming about playing in this game. I saw so many guys play in it and go on to play in the NFL. I always wanted to play in this game. " Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson also was invited to serve as an assistant coach at the annual game, which features some of the best players in the country in an East vs. West format.

Myles Powell scored the bulk of his 1,000 career points in a Medford Tech uniform. So it was more than a little ironic that Powell reached the historic milestone in a game against his old team. Powell, a 6-foot-3 guard, hit a deep three-pointer from the wing to reach the 1,000-point plateau in the first quarter of host Trenton Catholic's 74-56 victory over Medford Tech in a Burlington County League inter-division game Monday night. "He's still a Jaguar," said Medford Tech coach Nick Powell, who is no relation to the player.

In 2011, more than 50 percent of the NJSIAA's general membership voted to revamp the playoff system to allow state championships in public-school football. That wasn't enough, as a two-thirds majority was needed to change the organization's constitution. On Monday, less than 35 percent (95 of 278) voted in favor of a nearly identical proposal. This was much more than a save-Thanksgiving-games revolt. Opposition to the notion of playing championship games in the No. 1 sport in the state was widespread and deep - and it's not going to fade away in the foreseeable future.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - As it turns out, nearly two-thirds of NJSIAA member schools were in agreement about state championships in public-school football. They agreed to vote against them. By a resounding margin, NJSIAA schools on Monday shot down a proposal that would have created state-championship games in public-school football for the first time in New Jersey history. The proposal was voted down at the organization's general membership meeting at the Pines Manor banquet hall by 183-95, with three abstentions.

It's fourth and goal for state championship football. The NJSIAA's general membership will vote Monday on a proposal to allow public schools to play for state championships for the first time in New Jersey state history. "I'm optimistic," said NJSIAA associate director Jack DuBois, who oversees football for the organization that governs high school sports in New Jersey. A two-thirdS majority of the votes cast during the NJSIAA's general membership meeting Monday at the Pines Manor in Edison is needed to remove one sentence from Article IX of the NJSIAA's constitution: "No state championships shall be awarded in football.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - Jack DuBois believes most New Jersey high school football fans would love to see how a proposed new playoff system for public schools would end: with championship games featuring some of the best teams in the state. But DuBois, an NJSIAA associate director, knows that it's how such a format would occasionally begin that has caused some consternation: with the season opening on Labor Day weekend. "That's where the resistance lies - Labor Day," DuBois said after the NJSIAA monthly meeting Wednesday at its headquarters in Robbinsville.
