On the seventh play of yesterday's first offensive series, Camden High quarterback Kyle Clark dropped back and lofted a perfect fourth-down pass to wide-open Ryan Renolds in the Overbrook end zone. One problem. Renolds dropped the ball. "When I saw that," Camden coach Bill Simpson said after the game was history, I thought it was going to be one of those days where nothing goes right.

Camden, taking advantage of its superior size, remained unbeaten as it ground out a 12-6 Olympic Conference American Division victory at Overbrook, which suffered its first on-the-field loss of the season.

Camden High has been something of a mystery football team in the season's first month. The Panthers have a new coach in Nelson Hayspell, who never before has worked in this area. They had lost most of last year's team to graduation. They opened their season in Bayonne, 100 miles from home. And last week's home opener, a 7-0 loss to Washington Township, was played after a drenching rain that made it difficult to judge any team's quality. But there's no mystery anymore. Camden emerged as a strong Olympic Conference, American Division contender yesterday morning, shutting out host Overbrook, 20-0, in Pine Hill.

Cardinal O'Hara coach Buddy Gardler is not one to get carried away about nonleague victories, particularly in light of last season. That's when the Lions streaked to an 8-1 nonleague start, but got squeezed out of the playoffs when push came to shove in the Catholic League's Southern Division. Starting off this season with two wins, Friday against Overbrook at home and yesterday at Archbishop Wood, won't change Gardler's approach. "The emphasis in these early games has to be defense and rebounding," Gardler said.

Overbrook football coach Harvey Miller came into the season with the unenviable task of replacing running back Ron Dayne. Dayne, now a star at the University of Wisconsin, accumulated 1,566 yards and 25 touchdowns with a combination of size (5-10, 255 pounds) and speed to lead in the Rams to an 8-1 record. This year, Miller doesn't have to rely on one player to carry the load. Junior backs Imion Powell and Raheem Covington, and quarterback Aron Coleman, have made the transition a whole lot easier.

" Paul, who took up painting in her 30s, has been a fixture in Nugent's classes for years. Over the last six decades, she has quietly amassed an enormous portfolio of work that she has never exhibited in a solo show.
