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 outrebounded Florence by 17 yesterday en route to its 14th consecutive victory, a 70-54 win over the Flashes at Burlington County College. The contest was the championship game between the division winners of the Burlington County League. Next year, the league will switch to three divisions. Shawnee (22-2) is No. 3 in The Inquirer's Top 10. Florence, which shared the Burlington-Freedom title with Bordentown, is 17-6. Shawnee's lead, which was up to 15 points in the third quarter, was reduced to 53-47 on a basket by Florence junior Carey Kessler with 5 minutes, 57 seconds left.

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.

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.

Shawnee, the No. 1 team in The Inquirer's field hockey Top 15, ended Ocean City's 10-game scoreless streak in the final minute of the first half yesterday and went on to defeat the Red Raiders, 1-0. Junior Julie Kentrus scored the goal for Shawnee (8-1) with 54 seconds remaining in the half. It was the first scored against No. 4 Ocean City (9-1-1) this year. "They took away everything from us in the first half," said Shawnee coach Bobbie Schultz. "We seemed to take control of the game in the second half.

Eastern's field hockey team will not miss Shawnee's senior field hockey goaltender Danielle Vile when she graduates in June.

In three hours, a gaggle of golf-club-wielding Brownies would arrive at Shawnee High School to test the big kids' engineering projects. But 18-year-old Luke Growney was laughing Tuesday afternoon as he poured water into a gold-painted toilet bowl, and John Hannon appeared calm - or wary - as he tested his lighthouse with a golf ball. "I electrocuted myself two times last night," said Hannon, 18, seated on the floor of a glass-enclosed atrium outside the auditorium. Before him was a 20-foot plywood-and-carpet miniature golf course hole.

It was the type of loss that tends to stay with everyone involved. "I still talk to the guys who were on the team last year who graduated," senior attack Michael Handlan said. "They still think about it. " Last year, Handlan's Moorestown boys' lacrosse team wasn't just heavily favored to win the South Jersey championship; many had the Quakers pegged to win their second state championship in three seasons. Shawnee had other plans. In the inaugural sectional championships in state boys' lacrosse, the Renegades won the South Jersey Group 3 title in double overtime - at Moorestown - marking one of the area's most thrilling upsets in recent memory.

In the final seconds, fans were on their feet screaming, and players were jumping up and down on both sidelines. The ball rattled just in front of Moorestown's net, and it was inches from goalie Andrew Helfman when the clock hit zero. It was a fitting end to one of the area's most entertaining rivalries in any sport. The Moorestown boys' lacrosse team outlasted Shawnee on the road, 10-9, Saturday in the South Jersey Group 3 final. It was revenge for last season, when Shawnee upset heavily favored Moorestown in double overtime to win the sectional title.

Brendan Gumm has become an expert at leading the cheers for the Cherokee baseball team. He's not bad at creating them, either. Gumm cracked a two-run homer and finished with four RBIs as Cherokee continued its torrid play with an 8-3 victory over Shawnee on Wednesday in an Olympic Conference American Division game. Winning pitcher Frank Rosetti, a senior righthander, worked 51/3 innings, and senior first baseman Jake Powell was 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI for Cherokee (12-7 overall, 8-1 division)

When he discusses last year's sectional championship against Moorestown, Reese Tursi talks about the attitude it took to win. It was similar to what he felt last week at St. Augustine. "Both of those teams are very talented, and they obviously thought they were better than us," said Tursi, senior goalie for the Shawnee boys' lacrosse team. "And we used that. We used that mind-set to our advantage. "We were focused. And we felt like we had to prove someone wrong. " Tursi made 24 saves in the Renegades' 4-3 overtime win over heavily favored Moorestown in last year's inaugural South Jersey Group 3 final.

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.

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. "Nobody even expected us to be here; we know that getting to this point was special," Shawnee senior Olivia Askin said after her team's 60-41 loss to Paterson Eastside in the Group 4 girls' basketball state championship game Sunday at the Pine Belt Arena. 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. And while there was no letup on defense, the Renegades had their highest scoring game this postseason on Wednesday night and thus will compete for their first state title. With four players scoring eight or more points and eight hitting the scoring column, Shawnee used a balanced attack to defeat Colts Neck, 66-48, in a state Group 4 semifinal at Timber Creek.
