Kiley Graham vowed she would be the Shawnee field hockey team's loudest cheerleader. Little did Graham know that she would be the player responsible for the biggest ovation. The freshman forward came off the bench to score the decisive goal with 24 minutes left in regulation time as the third-seeded Renegades knocked off top-seeded Cherokee yesterday, 1-0, in the Central Jersey Group 4 championship game. Shawnee (18-3-2) will meet Eastern (20-0-0), the South Jersey champion, in a state Group 4 semifinal Wednesday at Cherokee.

Lenape football coach Tim McAneney has done a masterful job all season, and he was just as impressive during his postgame talk to the team Thursday. He spoke from the heart after a 10-7 victory at Shawnee, his squad's traditional Thanksgiving rival. "Seniors, forever you will remember this day, this game," he said. "The fellowship you have with each other is the most important, gentlemen. " There are so many reasons that this was such an emotional win. First, it came against Shawnee, a team that still owns a 34-8-2 edge in this rivalry.

The chatter in the stands before the game was that lightning was coming, no doubt about it. Long before the first raindrop, there was talk of when and what time the game would be rescheduled, because it was going to be rescheduled - that much was certain. Rain came. Lightning never did. Some things in life, it turns out, are more reliable than a weather forecast. Take the Shawnee running game, for instance. The Renegades' rushing attack gashed Kingsway for four quarters, leading them to a 25-19 road win on opening night of the 2013 football season.

For a team that is making its first-ever appearance in the South Jersey Boys' Soccer Coaches Tournament, Camden Catholic sure wants to prolong its stay. While some teams look at the coaches tournament as a secondary event behind the state tournament, Camden Catholic views it on equal footing - and its enthusiasm is obvious. The Irish scored two goals in the first four minutes and continued their record-setting season with yesterday's 6-0 shutout of Delran in a coaches tournament semifinal at Sterling.

The Beach Ball Classic, considered high school's answer to March Madness, will have an all Philadelphia-area final tonight. Second-seeded Shawnee did its part in last night's second semifinal with an impressive 52-44 victory over Artesia, of Lakewood, Calif.

When Tim Gushue first sat down with his assistants to discuss the boys' track and field season, the longtime Shawnee coach wasn't optimistic. "The outlook back in February was pretty bleak," Gushue said. "So I'm really pleased with the outcome. " That outcome, at least for the regular season, was finalized Monday when the Renegades clinched a share of their second division title. Going into the final day of dual-meet competition, Shawnee was tied with Eastern and Lenape atop the Olympic Conference American Division.

The last time Shawnee and Rancocas Valley met in boys' basketball, they produced one of the most memorable games in recent South Jersey playoff history. Rancocas Valley beat the Renegades, 74-72, in double overtime for last year's South Jersey Group 4 championship. The two will renew their rivalry at 1 p.m. tomorrow in a nonconference game at Shawnee. Last year, Shawnee lost just twice all season, and both losses were to Rancocas Valley. Beating the Red Devils will be no easier this year.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Shawnee's Nikola Williams prefaced part of her postgame comments. "I'm really not trying to brag," she said. Well, actually, she was about to brag just a bit. And that's part of the essence of this girls' basketball team. For four years, Williams was the face of South Jersey's feistiest, scrappiest team, and part of what drove the Renegades was their swagger. "We changed this program - no one really cared before," the senior forward said after Shawnee fell just short in the state Group 4 title game Sunday in a 54-48 loss to Franklin at the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River.

One day before the state championship, Chrissy McGovern gave a homework assignment to her Shawnee girls' basketball team. "After practice," she said, "I told them to go home and watch Hoosiers . " The classic movie features a small-town, underdog high school basketball team overcoming the odds to win a state title. That about sums up the attitude the Renegades are taking into the Group 4 championship matchup with Franklin at 4 p.m. Sunday at Toms River North's Pine Belt Arena.

Two days removed from clinching its second straight South Jersey Group 4 championship, the Shawnee girls' basketball team can keep on celebrating. The Renegades advanced to the State Group 4 final Thursday night for the second consecutive year with a 49-40 semifinal win over Marlboro at Timber Creek. "Our girls played hard and stepped up in a tough game," Shawnee coach Chrissy McGovern said. "But we love these types of games and excel in them. " In the third quarter, Marlboro looked to take its first lead, tying the game 28-28, but behind the strong play of co-captains Nikola Williams and Taylor Ryan gave Shawnee the advantage.

Maggie McIntyre, nursing a nosebleed after the game, was still all smiles. "To most other girls on the court, I'm about elbow-height," the 4-foot-11 sharpshooter for the Gloucester Catholic girls' basketball team said. "So a girl set a high screen and her elbow caught me. I was perfectly fine except that my nose was bleeding. That's just what can happen when you play in these tough games. " Like her teammates, these are the games McIntyre lives for. On paper, Gloucester Catholic's 47-33 win at Shawnee on Saturday afternoon meant essentially nothing.

Whether anybody saw it coming a year ago, everybody associated with the Shawnee boys' basketball program now admits it wasn't a pretty sight. One of the most successful programs in South Jersey went into a one-year free-fall, done in largely by inexperience and injury. The Renegades went 8-18 and didn't qualify for the South Jersey Group 4 playoffs, which for so long had seemed like a rite of passage. Under coach Joe Kessler, the Renegades have earned one Tournament of Champions title, five state championships, and 10 South Jersey crowns.

We've just witnessed another recruiting season, which always includes plenty of hyperbole about the four- and five-star recruits that dot the football landscape. It's the same type of hype that we see in basketball, and really, in any other sport. There is no doubt that many five-star recruits live up to their rating. But one thing that gets forgotten is that some recruits that rated lower turn out to be good players. High school athletes peak at different times and many don't hit their stride until college, or even after.
