Once an immature boy whose neck was nearly caught within the noose of K.C. Keeler's hands, Scott Lipford has emerged as a responsible young family man with a chance to play in the NFL. Lipford, an Ocean City High graduate and record-setting receiver for Rowan, signed a free-agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers two days after last month's draft. He attended San Francisco's mini-camp and will return for another camp on May 16 in hopes of earning an invitation to preseason camp.

Rowan scored touchdowns in each quarter en route to a 27-12 victory over William Paterson last night. A lucky bounce late in the first quarter got the Profs (7-2, 3-1 NJAC) started toward the victory over the Pioneers (1-9, 0-5). With eight seconds left in the quarter, Brandon Medine picked up a fumbled snap on a William Paterson punt and ran into the end zone from 3 yards out. Before halftime, Rowan had raised its lead to 14-0. Pat Thompson, who led the Profs in rushing with 70 yards on 14 carries, ran in from 17 yards out with 4 minutes, 15 seconds left in the half, and Darren Shaddow added his second extra point.

With his best offensive player, best defensive player, and several other key contributors lost to injury, Rowan coach Jay Accorsi didn't know how far the Profs could go. But, Rowan's run into the Division III semifinals for the second consecutive year surpassed his expectations. "For the devastating injuries we had, and for the players to still believe in what they're doing, that makes it fun coaching college football," Accorsi said. "This group did a great job, made a great run, did some great things.

The exodus continues on Hawk Hill. When the last basketball season ended for St. Joseph's and all the recruits had been signed, the program had a problem. If the status quo was maintained, St. Joe's would have had 16 players on scholarship for the following season. Only 13 scholarships are allowed. Something would have to give. A few someones would have to go. First, Kevin Connor transferred to Richmond. Then, Chris DiMascio transferred to Fordham and Alex Compton left for Cornell.

When a team shoots 37 percent and wins by 22 points, it's safe to say those numbers add up to good defense. That was the story for the Rowan women's basketball team yesterday, as the Profs took a 72-50 victory over No. 3 seed Colby-Sawyer in the second round of the NCAA Division III Atlantic regionals. The second-seeded Profs (22-5) will play Friday at a site to be determined against Williams, the Northeast region winner. The Profs advanced by harassing Colby-Sawyer into 31 percent shooting and 21 turnovers.

Joy Reighn realizes that success has its price, but the Rowan athletic director doesn't mind paying it. Reighn once again is searching for a new basketball coach after Candace Crabtree became the new women's coach at Drexel University on Wednesday. Crabtree was Rowan's all-time winningest women's basketball coach with a 171-25 record (.872 winning percentage). She led the Profs to six NCAA berths in seven seasons, including one Final Four, three Elite Eights, and four Sweet 16s. "She routinely guided Rowan into elite company, and Drexel can only benefit from both her knowledge and enthusiasm of the game," Drexel athletic director Eric Zillmer said.

To accommodate larger crowds as student enrollment rises, Rowan University will hold this year's commencement on its football field instead of its traditional location, the school announced Wednesday. The university initially planned to hold the main graduate and undergraduate ceremonies on the University Green, outside Bunce Hall, the oldest building on campus. That space can hold 10,000 people, university spokesman Joe Cardona said: 2,000 students and 8,000 guests. But 11,000 people showed up last year, he said, and 1,000 visitors were left standing.

GLASSBORO Nearly 900 Rowan University students fanned out across Glassboro on Sunday for the "Back to the Boro" neighborhood cleanup in what has become an annual outpouring of sweat equity - and appreciation - for the town that hosts them nine months of the year. On a gorgeous, summerlike day ideal for sunbathing and otherwise loafing, students from 150 campus groups instead helped residents with household chores, cleaned along roads, and put in time at community centers. "They get to see who we really are," Joe Niccoli, 20, a criminal justice major, said as he scrubbed William and Rita Capelli's bathroom.

CAMDEN The growth of Camden's medical corridor and academic expansion through a Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University partnership moved forward Monday with a full governing board being appointed and given broad power to act quickly. The creation of the Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden Board of Governors grew out of a 2012 legislative attempt - contentious at times - to merge the two campuses. Under a compromise, Rutgers and Rowan remain independent but partners in "meds and eds," which officials of each school on Monday vowed to support.

GLASSBORO The fish were fighting themselves. On Friday, 23 Clearview Regional High School students sat distracted in Rowan University assistant professor Matthew Bealor's laboratory in Glassboro as participants in the university's eighth annual Science Day. They were prodding tanks of betta fish on the countertops, some rapping their nets against the glass, others pressing their noses to the sides of the tanks. After lecturing for a few minutes about the aggressive tendencies of male betta fish - which will rip one another to shreds if more than one is kept in the same tank - the professor told the visiting students they were allowed to lower their floating mirrors into the water.

Rowan will "convene panels of experts," Blank said, who will work with consultant teams to improve current programs, such as its Institute for Successful Aging.
