Sacred Heart field hockey coach Randy Rogers operates on the theory that it takes "one goal and a thousand saves to win a game. " That is what she said Sacred Heart received yesterday as the Lions beat visiting Mount St. Joseph Academy, 1-0, in an Athletic Association of Catholic Academies matchup. Sacred Heart didn't receive a thousand saves from junior goalie Sam Dunn. But the Lions did get six big ones. Those clutch stops, coupled with sophomore Maura Bogue's goal with 8 minutes, 31 seconds to play, stood up for the margin of victory.

Ashley Durham and her Sacred Heart teammates showed visiting Wildwood Catholic something it had not seen this season: pressure defense and blistering offense. Feeding off a tenacious man-to-man, pressing, trapping defense, Sacred Heart walloped Wildwood Catholic, 57-32, last night in a Cape-Atlantic National Division II game. Durham led all scorers with 31 points to bring her within 21 points of 1,000 in her career - and she's only a junior. The star guard scored 14 points during a 24-point run in the third period that put the game out of reach for Wildwood Catholic (5-4 overall, 2-2 division)

History wasn't weighing on the Sacred Heart softball team. Neither was that 2-0 deficit against St. Joseph and ace pitcher Nicole Pagano. The Lions stayed loud in the dugout, determined at the plate, and aggressive on the bases en route to 3-2 victory yesterday in a Cape Atlantic National II game at the South Vineland Little League field. "We just kept telling ourselves we could do it," Sacred Heart pitcher Kylie Kristovich said. "We never gave up. " Arielle Bruno and Clarissa Hayes scored on the same wild pitch to cap a three-run rally in the fourth inning for Sacred Heart (12-4, 3-1)

Sacred Heart coach Anita Miller, a world-class player in her own right, likes to do things in a big way, especially when it comes to her school's squad, the defending regular-season Catholic Academies League champion. That is why Miller, one day after officially opening the fall practice season, took her team to Radnor on Tuesday afternoon to face the Red Raiders, the 1985 Central League titlists. What Miller saw, ranging from Sacred Heart's offensive dominance for a good portion of the first half to a defensive collapse in the second half and the resultant 2-0 loss to Radnor, left the former U.S. Olympian bristling.

For most schools, a three-year drought without an NJSIAA sectional baseball title is no big deal. For Gloucester Catholic, it seems like an eternity. "It's been a while since we won one," said Dennis Barth, Gloucester Catholic's coach since 1993. "It's the longest we've gone since I've been here. " The Rams have a difficult task. They will try to end a three-year drought - their longest span without a sectional title since a six-year period from 1987 to 1992 - when they meet talented Sacred Heart in tomorrow's 4 p.m. South Jersey Non-Public B final at Mercer County Park in West Windsor.

It's not unusual for the Sacred Heart girls' basketball team to turn some heads. Two years ago, under first-year coach Steve DiPatri, the Lions compiled their first winning record - 17-8 - in 14 years and won the Cape National Division II title. Last season, they advanced to the South Jersey Parochial B semifinals before losing to eventual champion St. Joseph. This summer, the Lions are continuing that success. Wednesday night, they won the Varsity MBM summer championship at Washington Township by defeating Deptford, 51-30.

Hello there   On her summer 2005 tour of the University of Pittsburgh, Caroline was impressed with the campus, obsessed with the gold-and-navy-blue-striped rugby shirts worn by the student guides called Pathfinders, and determined to become a Pathfinder herself. That fall, she was leaving her first Pathfinders meeting when one of the rowdy sophomores who had hooted and hollered as the new guides introduced themselves walked up to her. "Hi, I'm Alex," he said. Caroline, who grew up in Media, had graduated from the all-girls' Country Day School of the Sacred Heart in Bryn Mawr.

Rosie LaGrotta had a night free from her team, so she went to Millville for a softball game and to see her former teammates play. As an alumna does, she made her way around the field and caught up with a lot of the girls throughout the game. The only difference was that LaGrotta is a senior at Paul VI and the girls she went to see were her former teammates from Sacred Heart. Together, they won the South Jersey Non-Public B title the last two years before the school closed because of declining enrollment.

At the beginning of the end, things were not going well for the Sacred Heart softball team. The players were angry and anxious after the Diocese of Camden announced in March that the school would close in June. Coach Les Olson was feeling a little sour, too. "It was about a week after the announcement," senior Lindsay Dwyer recalled. "Coach Les stopped practice one day and made us all sit down along the left-field line. "He told us, 'Listen, we're a family. We have to stick together and make this as special of a season as we can.' " Olson's pep talk likely set the tone for one of the more inspiring seasons in recent South Jersey sports.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - The Sacred Heart softball players took a knee in shallow center field. A few rested their chins on their fists as coach Les Olson spoke. Back on the infield dirt, Immaculate Conception of Lodi raised the state championship trophy high as photographers clicked away. As students of the Vineland school slated to close June 30, the Sacred Heart players have been marking off every final event for weeks. But the closing ritual of Sunday's 6-4 loss to Immaculate Conception in the Non-Public B state final at Toms River East brought with it a finality that could not be brushed aside.
