The Palmyra softball team will go toe-to-toe with a Schilling fastball on Saturday. Not Curt Schilling, the all-star pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies, but Shonda Schilling, his wife. The Panthers will play a team of Phillies wives at Legion Field in Palmyra at 1 p.m. in a benefit for the ALS Foundation. Palmyra coach Ed Morgan organized the first charity game last season as the Panthers competed against a combination team of the Palmyra police and Phillies wives.

Florence and Palmyra shared the Burlington/Olympic Freedom Division football title last year, but this season, they're in different divisions of the new West Jersey Football League. On Friday night at Palmyra, Florence had a chance to prove that it was better than the Panthers, who had won the old Burlington/Olympic division crown in 2008, too. Junior Alonzo Sadler had different ideas. Sadler scored on touchdown runs of 10 and 55 yards and returned a punt 40 yards for another score to lead Palmyra to a 30-14 win. He also scored on a conversion run and conversion pass.

Riverside's Sabra Wrice scores goals. Her sister, Tobi, prevents them. Together, they have given opponents plenty to worry about. The two combined for another sterling effort yesterday as visiting Riverside beat Palmyra, 1-0, in a key Burlington County League Freedom Division game. Riverside is 6-1 overall and 5-0 in the division. Sabra Wrice, who is a junior, scored the game's lone goal, her ninth of the season.

Matt Hammond might have been the only player in the gym who wasn't overly impressed by his performance. The 6-foot-7 Burlington junior scored a career-high 34 points to lead the Blue Devils over Palmyra, 90-65, last night in a Burlington County League Freedom Division boys' basketball game. The win gave Burlington the upper hand in the Freedom. The Blue Devils are 5-2 overall and 4-0 in the division. Palmyra fell to 4-3, 2-1. "It's not the best I have played," said Hammond, who shot 15 for 17 from the field.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Mount St. Joseph performed well on offense in the first half of its PIAA Class AAAA basketball playoff against Palmyra, scoring 27 points and committing only two turnovers. Problem was, John Miller's squad allowed the Cougars, with their efficient motion offense, to put up 34 points. Since the Magic's goal is to keep foes under 40 for the game, that spelled serious trouble. Palmrya, of District 3, pulled away with an 11-3 run in the third quarter and ousted the Mount, 57-38, Tuesday night in a second-round contest at Bethlehem Freedom.

Growing up in Camden in the 1960s, Francine Still Hicks knew her great-great-grandfather only as the author of a book her family treasured. She's since gotten to know the 19th-century James Still, the legendary "black doctor of the Pines," a lot better. "I have the portrait I painted of him on the wall," Hicks, 57, says with a throaty chuckle. "We talk all the time. " Hicks, an artist in Palmyra, recently gave an original, idiosyncratic presentation about her illustrious ancestor at Batsto Village in Wharton State Forest.

Palmyra football coach Jack Geisel has made defending the two-point play a point of focus this season. That focus proved to be the difference Saturday. The Panthers kept the Rams out of the end zone three times on two-point conversion attempts, as Palmyra won, 21-18, at Riverside in a West Jersey Football League Freedom Division game. "We've been out there giving up points," Geisel said of his defense on two-point attempts this season. "We came to play on the two-point play. " The defense also provided the winning score.

Palmyra girls' track and field coach Claudia Potor said it was the Panthers' turn in 2002. To have a down year, that is. After winning the South Jersey Group 1 championship in 2001 with a squad teeming with talent, Palmyra had to cope with heavy graduation losses and injuries this spring. "It's always a cycle in Group 1," said Potor, whose team was 2-2 in dual meets this year. "After five or six years, the well was going to run dry. " For four years, the Panthers had outstanding runners - Kari Steed, Natasha Marshall and Kristen Papenberg.
