Delran graduate Erica "Boo" Schubert, The Inquirer's South Jersey female athlete of the year in 1999, is transferring from the University of Florida to Rutgers after two seasons of playing for the Gators' soccer team. Schubert will not have to sit out a year after receiving her release from Florida. In soccer, a player can transfer once without sitting out if the school the player is leaving signs a release form. Schubert is transferring because she suffers from a gastrointestinal disorder and feels it can be better treated closer to home.

CLEVELAND - A quarter of a century is a long time to wait for a second opportunity, but that's how long it has taken C. Vivian Stringer to return to the NCAA women's championship game. Back in 1982, the NCAA finally had sanctioned women's basketball as a varsity sport, and Stringer was coaching at Cheyney State in the southwestern suburbs of Philadelphia. The Wolves missed out on a chance at immortality by losing the title game, 76-62, to Louisiana Tech in Norfolk, Va. Stringer couldn't have imagined that it would take her 25 years to coach in another national championship game.

Yesterday could have easily been "Rashidat Junaid Day" over at Camden Catholic High School. That's because you would have been hard-pressed to find anyone at the Cherry Hill campus not talking about the 2006 Irish graduate.

MINUTES AFTER Prep Charter remained undefeated by knocking off Delaware Valley Charter, 13-6, on Saturday, Karamo Dioubate plopped onto the turf at the South Philadelphia Supersite physically and emotionally spent. He had just limped into the Huskies' victorious end zone, assisted by an assistant coach as head man David Hand addressed his first-place squad. Dried salt caked near the 6-4, 265-pound two-way lineman's temples, no doubt from persistent perspiration. Teammates and coaches joined to peel the pads from his battered body as an ice pack rested on his left knee.

Rutgers-Camden junior forward Mike Ryan (Cherokee) broke a scoreless tie early in the first half when he scored the 47th goal of his career, tying the Rutgers-Camden program record. His tally helped the Scarlet Raptors defeat Ramapo College, 2-0, in a New Jersey Athletic Conference soccer game in Mahway, N.J. Ryan's goal came at 54:58 when he headed in a cross by junior midfielder Connor Hurff (St. Augustine Prep). His 47th goal tied the career mark set by Mitch Grotti last season and also gave him 15 career game-winning goals, four shy of Grotti's record.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - When Penn State visits Michigan next Saturday, the Nittany Lions will be facing a reeling team that continues to be among this year's biggest disappointments in college football. The struggles of one of college football's once-elite programs continued Saturday night with a 26-24 loss to Rutgers before a sellout crowd of 53,327 at High Point Solutions Stadium. Michigan is 2-4 overall, 0-2 in the Big Ten, and those howls for coach Brady Hoke's job won't be silenced by this performance.

David Goree made dozens of big plays in the passing game for one of the most exciting teams in Woodrow Wilson football history. Now, the former star quarterback is better at handoffs. Goree is about to surrender his longtime status as the city of Camden's all-time leader in career touchdown passes to current Camden High quarterback Khalil Williams, who is a remarkably similar athlete in terms of size, surprising arm strength, and style of play. Goree has passed along something else, as well.

Rutgers University officials apologized profusely Monday for the unsportsmanlike conduct of their football fans who mocked the Jerry Sandusky child sexual-assault scandal during the school's weekend game against Big Ten rival Pennsylvania State University. In a one-page letter to Penn State president Eric J. Barron, Rutgers president Robert L. Barchi apologized for "offensive actions" of "a very small handful of our fans. " Photographs taken during Saturday's pregame tailgating outside High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, N.J., showed Rutgers fans wearing shirts that read "Beat Ped State," a derogatory reference to the Sandusky case.

For Penn State's players from New Jersey like Bill Belton, Brandon Bell, and Angelo Mangiro, coming back to the Garden State for one of the most historic games in the annals of Rutgers football and winning could not have been sweeter.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Rutgers cheerleaders walked up the empty stands, plastered with looks of disgust. Thousands of zombie-like fans, decked head to toe in red, slowly filed out of the stadium.

Rutgers led Penn State for 98 percent of the game - all but the last 73 seconds. But, of course, those were the only seconds that mattered.
