Rancocas Valley senior Lauren Gaskill was distraught when she had to give up baseball around age 9 after finding out that softball was the high school sport for girls. "It was disappointing when I found out I couldn't play baseball my entire life," Gaskill said. "So I went over to softball and it worked out OK. " That might be the understatement of the year. Gaskill was an all-star in baseball, but she took it to another level in a sport she would grow to love - and dominate.

If Rancocas Valley High is ever going to make a dent in the Burlington County Liberty Division basketball standings, this may be the year. Fourth-year coach Ron Powell has several returning starters and a crop of talented newcomers who could possibly lift the Red Devils to respectability. Last season, Rancocas Valley finished a dismal 7-15 overall and 6-10 in the league. However, many Liberty powerhouses such as Willingboro, Kennedy, and Holy Cross lost key players to graduation, leaving this season's race wide open.

When the game was mercifully over, the scoreboard read Strath Haven 70, Avon Grove 23, and 17 Panthers had played, including six just called up from junior varsity.

Kennedy High's Sean McClellan, who first-half production was hindered by foul problems, erupted for seven critical points in last night's frenetic fourth quarter at Rancocas Valley. But the 1,000 fans in attendance won't remember McClellan's points. Instead, they'll remember his dramatic block and end-to-end rush in the final minute that keyed Kennedy's riveting, 81-73 Burlington County League Liberty Division upset over Rancocas Valley. With the victory, the Gryphons (7-2 overall, 4-1 league)

Rancocas Valley girls' basketball coach Jerry Dunn lost plenty of offensive firepower to graduation, but don't put his Red Devils down for the count yet. With seven letter-winners returning from a club that posted a 22-4 overall record and shared the Burlington County Liberty Division championship in 1987-88, the Red Devils should once again be among the area's elite clubs. Dunn lost all-South Jersey performer Cindy Calvert, a career 1,000-point scorer, to graduation. Rancocas Valley will see the return of potential all-league performers in senior guard Kerri Perinchief and junior center Sandy Alcott.

Call them Road Warriors. Feed them pizza and Gatorade and put them on a bus for a long ride to an unfamiliar gymnasium, and there's not much the Rancocas Valley boys' basketball team can't accomplish. "We love playing away from home," junior guard Tariq Jett said. Rancocas Valley (19-11), the Central Jersey champion, will play another game away from home at noon Sunday. This time, it's the Group 4 state finals against Paterson Eastside (19-8), the North I champion, at Rutgers University.

Rancocas Valley boys' basketball coach Ron Powell will have plenty of firepower on the outside and a big question mark inside. With a veteran backcourt led by senior guard Demetrius Rosado, the Red Devils could emerge as a top contender in the tough Burlington County Liberty Division. The only big question remaining for Powell, whose team sported a 17-9 overall record last winter, is how to replace Alonzo Spellman, a dominating force at center last season. Spellman, a heavily recruited two-time All-South Jersey football selection, left the team during the preseason saying he wanted to concentrate on his grades.

These guys from Penns Grove, they move pretty well with chips on their shoulders. They block, tackle, break loose for punt returns, jump on about a dozen fumbles - OK, it was only five - and overwhelm the defending sectional champions despite all that extra baggage. Or maybe because of it. "We're over that," Penns Grove coach Kemp Carr said of last season and his team's disqualification from the South Jersey Group 1 tournament. Nobody believed Carr as he stood on his team's home field after Saturday's 54-0 rout of Glassboro in the season opener.

Rancocas Valley High coach Jerry Dunn won't expect miracles this season, but he will expect to see plenty of promising signs. The Red Devils, who compiled a 19-4 overall record last season and finished second in the Burlington County League Liberty Division race, graduated 10 players and are clearly rebuilding. But Dunn has many promising newcomers to blend in with two letter-winners, giving Rancocas Valley a chance at respectability. "We lost some very good players, and we lost a lot of depth," said Dunn, a second-year coach.

The new strategy, put simply, is this: When a shark is eating, you keep feeding it. "That's how we see ourselves," senior forward Dominique Ward said. "We're sharks, and we eat. " The Rancocas Valley girls' basketball team has been known all season for unselfish play on offense. At times, that has worked against the Red Devils, and the results have been disjointed and uneven. Thursday night, though, the sharks were eating. "We realized whoever has the hot hand, we have to keep feeding them," senior guard Lauren Moses said.

The optimist would point to Medford Tech's raining down three-pointers, some of them seemingly unguardable, in the fourth quarter. The optimist would point to Rancocas Valley's resiliency, the fight the Red Devils showed after coughing up a nine-point, fourth-quarter lead, and their ability to answer with their own big plays and hang on for a 61-58 home win in boys' basketball. That's one way to look at the final eight minutes on Friday night. But it doesn't quite tell the whole story.

A roller coaster of a game was neatly summed up in its final 30 seconds. The Camden Catholic girls' basketball team made three trips to the foul line in that span, taking six shots and making five. And so it was: Brush aside the maddening play on both ends of the court, and only the most basic principle of the sport was left: Camden Catholic did the little things it needed to do to win. Rancocas Valley did not. "It was an amazing win. We came out confident and ready to play tonight - we're always ready for any fight," Camden Catholic sophomore guard Taiah Thornton said after her team's 52-48 upset of RV on Friday night at Eastern in a semifinal of the South Jersey Invitational Basketball Tournament.

Some basketball players have such famous games they are known by one name. Kobe . . . LeBron . . . Laqwin. OK, so Penns Grove senior Laqwin Stewart might not be there yet. But it was somehow fitting that in the program for Monday's Claude Kennard MLK Classic at Paulsboro, Stewart was the only player on 10 teams listed by just his first name. And by the end of Penns Grove's impressive 75-60 victory over Delsea, everybody in the crowded gymnasium seemed to know him. "He was dynamite," Delsea coach Tom Freeman said of Stewart.

The special-teams unit at Rancocas Valley lived up to its name Saturday afternoon. The Red Devils returned a kickoff and a punt for scores and stopped a late two-point conversion attempt to secure a 21-19 victory over visiting Trenton in a West Jersey Colonial football game. Zakiyy Williams took a blocked punt 5 yards into the end zone early in the fourth to put the Red Devils ahead, 20-13. Elia Palmese capped that score with his third extra point, which proved to be the difference.
