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.

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 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.

Very few people thought that midway through the season, Shawnee against Clearview would be a game for first place in the West Jersey Football League National Division. While Shawnee's inclusion is no surprise, the fact that Clearview, a team that went 2-8 last season and wasn't predicted to be significantly improved, was playing for first place seemed a little on the startling side. To everybody, of course, but Clearview. In this season in which there have been several surprises, it is difficult finding a bigger one than Clearview, which moved into sole possession of first place with Friday night's 20-14 win over visiting Shawnee.

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - Ninety minutes of waiting was nothing if not bizarre. But when lightning caused not one but three delays on the turf at Ridge High School, that's exactly what the Shawnee boys' lacrosse team was forced to do Wednesday night. The Renegades waited. And waited. And rather than being postponed, a scheduled 7:30 p.m. game - a state championship game - didn't begin until 9 p.m. As odd as the conditions were, the results were just as strange and uncommon for Shawnee.

When David Smith turned toward the cage, the first thing he noticed was a defender bearing down on him. It was a fitting moment because it summed up the entire game: One team pushed, the other team pushed harder. And with that defender in the corner of his eye, Smith starting pushing. "I saw I had a step on him, and I just took off down the field. I was able to slide left toward the goal and get a quick shot off top-shelf," Smith said. "The first thing I thought when it went in was: It's about time.

Three years ago, Caroline Farley was a nervous freshman, a natural offensive midfielder asked to play defense for the Shawnee girls' lacrosse team. One of Farley's fondest memories of that season was when the girl wearing No. 22, the tall junior defender, took her under her wing. "I was just this little freshman, but she welcomed me. She showed me everything I needed to know - and she became one of my best friends," Farley said of Katie Kernan, her teammate who passed away in July after a battle with brain cancer.

If not for the horrible coincidence, there wouldn't be much in common between the girls' lacrosse programs from Cherokee and Shawnee. Other than proximity and history and rivalry and familiarity and everything else that binds together athletes and coaches from sister schools in the same sport in the same district, that is.
