After his freshman year, Christian Stackhouse tried with his coach, Kevin Landolt, to get the Riverside wrestling team together for summer workouts. Stackhouse and Landolt were the only ones who showed up. They still went ahead with their conditioning training and continued to do so two or three times every week throughout that summer and the next two. Every so often, one or two others would join them, but it was often just the two of them. Coming from Riverside, not a traditionally strong wrestling program, Stackhouse knew he needed those extra workouts to compete with wrestlers from some of the established powers in the area.

There has been a dramatic power shift in the Burlington County League Freedom Division. Delran and Bordentown are in. Riverside is out. Riverside . . . out????!!! Well, at least temporarily. After winning or sharing 11 of the previous 12 Burlco Freedom championships, Riverside stunningly slipped into sixth place in the nine-team division last year. The Rams finished with a 7-9-1 overall record - their first losing season since 1972, which also happened to be the first year Riverside had a soccer team.

Riverside's baseball team has qualified for the state tournament in each of coach Gary Herron's 11 seasons, but never have the Rams had such a close call as they did this weekend. Teams needed winning percentages of .500 or better by the May 7 cutoff date. After losing, 6-4, on May 2 to Conwell-Egan, Riverside was 4-9, with only four scheduled games. The Rams won those four. They also added a night game against Cherry Hill East on Friday at Cinnaminson's Memorial Park. At 11:08 p.m. Friday, Riverside became the last South Jersey team to qualify in Group 1 by defeating the Cougars, 17-10.

He is young and enthusiastic and, more importantly, Dan Harris knows the landscape. He also understands the enormity of the job he accepted earlier this month as football coach at Riverside. He replaced Nelson Hayspell, who resigned after last season. Harris is a 2005 graduate of Riverside, so he knows the past and present of the program and how it takes a special person to take on the challenge. That's because this Group 1 school has struggled mightily in football. This past fall, the Rams were 0-10, and they have lost 22 in a row. Over the last five years, they are 1-49.

Steve Kosyla, a former assistant coach at three high schools, has been named the head boys' soccer coach at Riverside. Kosyla was appointed at Thursday's school board meeting. A former standout player at Eastern and at Glassboro State College, Kosyla, 41, coached youth soccer last season. Previously, he spent six years as an assistant coach at Haddonfield during two different stints, and also was an assistant at Paul VI and Haddon Township. "His knowledge of the game and the way he works with youngsters really impressed me," said Jack Don, Riverside's athletic director.

In the world of residential construction, underground parking isn't sexy. Prominent developer Carl Dranoff thinks it is the least intriguing piece of his glamorous $100 million high-rise One Riverside, at 25th and Locust Streets. Dranoff refers to One Riverside as a "supermodel," because Cecil Baker designed it tall and thin, with the smallest footprint to accommodate the most open space. As Baker tells it, he created the tower of concrete, glass, and steel from a Dranoff sketch on a napkin, with a smaller-than-average floor plate that allows flexible design options such as combining smaller units into larger ones without having to relocate the plumbing mechanicals.

As hard as she tried, Riverside's sensational Sabra Wrice did not have enough power to lift her team to a state title yesterday. That job was left to a 5-foot-4 guard who looked as if she would have a hard time lifting an empty box. Khaliqa Davis collected 20 points, nine assists and four steals in leading Bloomfield Tech to a 71-59 win over Riverside in the NJSIAA Group 1 girls' basketball final at the Ritacco Center. The title was the first for Bloomfield Tech after three losses in the championship game; Riverside was making its first appearance in the final.

Riverside's wrestling program has gone from flatliner to playoff contender in the span of just two months. In November, two weeks before the start of the season, coach Earl Porter resigned. To make matters worse, the school was considering a plan to develop a co-op program with rival Palmyra because of low turnout. Nathan Marter stepped in as coach, but the Riverside alumnus had one condition. "I wanted to have an 'interest meeting' and see how many kids would come out. The last thing I wanted to have was a co-op situation," he said.

It's the first time in school history that McDevitt has advanced to the state quarterfinals. Also in the second round, Brandon Austin pulled down 12 rebounds and dropped in 11 points as Imhotep Charter knocked off Elmer L. Myers, 66-51, at Bethlehem Liberty.

The Burlington City pitching combination of Nick Gares and Michael Scott put together a masterful performance Tuesday in the 11th-seeded Blue Devils' 3-0 upset of No. 6 host Riverside in the South Jersey Group 1 playoffs. Gares earned the win by allowing two hits to go with six strikeouts in five innings. Scott entered the game in the bottom of the sixth inning and struck out one batter in earning a two-inning save. The game took two days to complete after it was suspended by rain on Monday.

A year after the groundbreaking for One Riverside, workers Monday poured concrete for the 22nd and final floor of the building hugging the Schuylkill at 25th and Locust Streets. Carl Dranoff, developer of the city's first luxury condominium high-rise to break ground since the housing bubble burst in third-quarter 2007, will be celebrating with an eighth-floor "topping off" party Wednesday evening. The invitation depicts Dranoff superimposed on Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte , a painting that art historians say altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-Impressionism.

Here's a bit of gossip that will undoubtedly prove true: Bristol Riverside Theatre's production of Neil Simon's Rumors provides two hours of unashamedly hilarious entertainment. Simon wrote Rumors in the late 1980s as a farce about the upper class in the style of Moliere. When lawyers Chris (Valerie Leonard) and Ken Gorman (Danny Vaccaro) arrive at the home of New York City's deputy mayor to celebrate his 10th wedding anniversary, they hear a gunshot. Rushing upstairs, they find the host wounded, and the hostess missing.

Perhaps the most heartbreaking element of The Language Archive , Julia Cho's gentle drama about love and linguistics, rests in its frequent references to Esperanto. In Bristol Riverside Theatre's production, linguist George (Irungu Mutu), his unhappy wife Mary (Julianna Zinkel), and besotted assistant Emma (Tiffany Villarin) move among rafters-high bookshelves filled with file folders containing the last recorded remnants of hundreds of dead languages. And yet, George and Emma, who can't even code-break human bonding in their mother tongues, study plucky Esperanto, a vocabulary invented for the purpose of bringing people together.

Donovon Guess wears a jersey with no number on the front. That's fitting for a player who is something of a mystery to many South Jersey basketball fans. "It got ripped off," LEAP Academy coach Harold Warner said of the numeral on the front of Guess' jersey. Opponents "are always pulling and grabbing at him. They tore it right off. " Guess is the state's leading scorer with a 37.5-point average through Wednesday. He's generated more than 40 points in three of LEAP Academy's first four games, with 46 against both Pennsauken and Palmyra.

Marquise Owens scored the 1,000th point of his career on Saturday, but the milestone shot wasn't the biggest of his day.

Football was a passion for Bernard Grabowski. He played it as a youth and was a lifelong fan of the Eagles, seeking out the team even after he retired to North Carolina a few years ago, and finding it there on TV at a local bar. In a double helping of Philly nostalgia, the place also served cheesesteaks. Mr. Grabowski, 75, a member of Riverside High School's Football Hall of Fame and a resident of King of Prussia before he and his wife moved to North Carolina in 2010, died Friday, Nov. 20, of cancer at his home in Brevard.

Two Bus Stop s dot the American cultural landscape: the flickeringly lit, windswept one William Inge placed onstage in 1955, and the bright, shiny, sheltered one Hollywood adapted for the screen in 1956. Bristol Riverside Theatre tries to split the distance between the two, but by doing so, it never quite reaches its destination. Bus Stop , the play, reads like an even more remote, lonelier inside view of Edward Hopper's painting Nighthawks . A bus filled with transients gets stuck in the snow somewhere between Topeka and Kansas City.
