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.

The top-seeded Rowan women's basketball team survived a season-high 29 turnovers and reversed a history of first-round failures with an 81-68 win over eighth-seeded Elizabethtown in an NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic Regional opener last night in Glassboro. The Profs (27-0) will host fourth-seeded Messiah (20-7), a 75-65 winner over Allentown, in a second-round game at 2 p.m. Saturday. It was just Rowan's second NCAA victory in seven games. The Profs had a 25-0 record entering the 1994 tourney but fell to Upsala in the opening round.

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.

One afternoon last week, Rowan University basketball coach Joe Cassidy popped his head into a room on the fifth floor of the Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and found it empty. "Is he in rehab?" Cassidy asked a nurse walking by. "He may be at lunch," she said. Three floors down, Robert Pittman was sitting at a cafeteria table across from his aunt. He had just finished a BLT and most of a bowl of mac and cheese. Rowan's coach complimented him on his attire, a Rowan basketball T-shirt.

This is a story about how art happens. It is also the story of a diminutive but determined woman, a sculptor who understood her vision and gave it wings, and a local university that saw fit to give it a home. Above all, it is a story about love. Growing up in Depression-era South Philadelphia, the children of a U.S. Mint worker and a dressmaker, Francesca Cottone Shaughnessy and her beloved brother Sebastian Charles Cottone were raised to view education as the key to success and a source of life's great joy. It served them well.

The Battleship New Jersey is a work in progress. But progress is definitely being made, officials said Monday, as they seek new funding and plan projects beyond the maintenance of the storied warship. The painting of the hull - right down to the iconic "62" on the bow - was finished this month. A new coat of gray paint also has been applied to the New Jersey side of the ship, above the hull, and will be added on the Pennsylvania side in the spring. That work has taken place as new teak decks are installed, a job that will take up to five years.

A Rowan University student's recent online posting, aimed at advancing a conversation about the needs of the school's transgender community, took a turn for the worse, prompting a university memo Monday and again putting a popular social media application under scrutiny. The student's message on the Yik Yak app last week proposed gender-neutral housing and better education for professors about transgender identity. The ideas were met by inflammatory remarks on the app, which allows users to anonymously contribute to a single thread based on geographical location.

The Rowan University ice hockey team arrived at 6:30 a.m. for conditioning. While most students slept, the athletes did suicide sprints, lunges, and push-ups during an hour-long workout in the Rowan recreation center just over a week ago. It was a scene similar to any NCAA team workout, except this wasn't an NCAA team. Ice hockey is a club sport at Rowan, but don't tell that these players. "I don't think it should be classified as a club sport," said Alec Nicolai, a junior right wing.

At WGLS-FM, my boomer heart delights at the sight of reel-to-reel tape recorders in the studio and vinyl records in the music library. "It's tough to part with this stuff," says Derek Jones, manager of the Rowan University radio station. Amid a sleek array of state-of-the-art digital equipment, "we have turntables in here, too," Jones adds. WGLS went on the air in January 1964, when I was in Western Massachusetts, mesmerized by the Top 40 crackling out of my transistor radio from WTRY-AM in Troy, N.Y. What was then the Glassboro State College station signed on at 89.7 FM with a puny 10-watt signal and a format composed mostly of what was called "easy listening.

A group of Camden high school seniors will have the opportunity to complete a medical apprenticeship and training program with the hope of landing jobs in the city's growing health-care field. Ten to 15 seniors will be selected in December to participate in a paid apprenticeship at an area health-care organization and then go on to a training program to get officially certified as a medical assistant. The program is the first launched by the Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden board of governors, created in April.

Rowan University officials on Wednesday affirmed the suspension of two male students involved in the recording and publishing of a sex video, but would not specify the length of the sanction. Both students were members of the university's Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) fraternity chapter but left the organization amid the controversy that unfolded late last month. The video was recorded by one of the students as the other had sex with a female student in a garage at the fraternity's house near Rowan's Glassboro campus.

For the first time in its history, Rowan University will not hold a university-wide commencement ceremony this year, the school announced Wednesday. Instead, graduation will be split into six ceremonies held over four days, the school said, citing a lack of indoor venues for its ever-growing enrollment. The ceremonies will all be held on University Green, the site of past commencements. Rain locations would include Esby Gym, Pfleeger Concert Hall, and Wilson Hall. The move comes after last year's ceremony was moved from the University Green to Wackar Stadium to accommodate a record class size and number of guests, prompting some pushback from students who had hoped to walk the stage on the traditional University Green location.
