As with her teammates, the poem is second nature to Caroline Shinske. She recites it like most people recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and she does it without thinking. The poem was made famous by Bear Bryant. He was said to have carried it everywhere he went. But Shinske didn't know that. Her teammates didn't know that. To Shinske and the rest of the Shawnee girls' lacrosse team, the poem is tradition, recited by generations of Renegades players before every practice: This is the beginning of a new day. I can waste it or use it for good.

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.

Shawnee junior goalie Mike Hartmann posted shutouts in his first two games over teams that were in The Inquirer's preseason South Jersey Top 10. The Renegades opened with a scoreless draw against Eastern. Monday, they earned a 2-0 victory over Cherry Hill West. "Mike is probably the best shot stopper I ever played with," Shawnee forward Kyle Franks said. In a year in which there are several top goalkeepers, Hartmann certainly should be on that list. "I think he is one of the better goalies around," Shawnee coach Brian Gibney said.

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. The Renegades (4-0) will meet Simon Gratz, the nation's top-rated team and a 66-45 winner last night over Westover of Albany, Ga. "Gratz is awesome," said Shawnee coach Joe Kessler. "We're going to have to play real well to be in the game, but stranger things have happened.

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.

The Lenape boys' basketball team has thrived this season in close, low-scoring games. Tuesday's big matchup with backyard rival Shawnee proved to be no different. Sawyer Hand sank a three-pointer from the wing with three seconds left to give host Lenape a 40-38 win over Shawnee in an Olympic Conference interdivision game. Lenape, The Inquirer's fifth-ranked team in South Jersey, rallied after being down by 11-3 in the first quarter behind a balanced attack. Tabu Gaither scored a team-high 11 points and was the only Lenape player to reach double digits.

The Shawnee players said the first days of practice under first-year girls' basketball coach Chrissy McGovern were drastically different. And awfully difficult. The team was coming off consecutive Olympic Conference Patriot Division titles and had won a total of 46 games over the previous two years, so McGovern didn't need to reshape everything. But that is exactly what she did. More importantly, she took a program that had enjoyed success to an even higher level. And it all started with buying into her defensive philosophy.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - There were tears, yes, but not as many as one might expect after a 19-point loss in a state championship game.

Shawnee's ride to the championship game included knocking off archrival Lenape and defending state Group 4 champion Rancocas Valley.

Shawnee's Olivia Askin is the only senior starter on a team that is one win from earning the school's first state championship, and she takes her role as elder stateswoman quite seriously. Whether it's leading on or off the court, the 5-foot-8 Hofstra recruit has played a major role in the Renegades' success. "As the only senior starter, I feel I have to lead, and I love the role," said Askin, whose 26-4 Shawnee team will play Paterson Eastside in the state Group 4 girls' basketball final at 2 p.m. Sunday at Toms River North.

All season, defense kept the Shawnee girls' basketball team in games, especially during the state tournament.

Becky Pund might as well have been all alone in an empty gym. She was relaxed, almost casual. In her mind, there were no screaming fans. No pressure. The game wasn't on the line. "Don't you ever," she was asked, "get nervous in these situations?" "Not at the foul line," Pund said after draining eight consecutive free throws late in Gloucester Catholic's 44-36 victory over Shawnee on Thursday night. "I really don't let the crowd affect me. I get to the line. I take my time.

Shawnee's Connor Muli has dominated at 138 pounds all season, going undefeated and earning the No. 2 ranking in South Jersey in the weight class, according to Wrestling Full Circle. In the Renegades' 70-6 Olympic Conference victory over Cherry Hill East on Wednesday night, Muli showed he'd be one of the best even if he gained a few pounds. On his senior night, Muli wrestled up two weight classes to 152 and ground out a 3-0 decision over Patrick Swenson. It was the first loss all season for Swenson, who is ranked No. 4 at 152. Shawnee's Brennan Humphrey picked up his 100th career win with a 52-second pin at 160. Tri-County.
