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.

Driving home after another Shawnee football victory, Jake Parola was struck by a seemingly odd but strangely familiar sight. Odd, because there was Parola's teammate and classmate, David Smith, on the ground under somebody else's vehicle. Familiar, because that was typical of Smith. "That's Dave," Parola said. "He's always helping somebody out. " Before long, both Smith and Parola were on the cold, dark ground on the side of Tabernacle Road, fixing a flat for the grandparents of a player from the opposing team.

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.

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.

Danny Buckwalter takes pride in being a dependable role player for the Cherry Hill West boys' basketball team. But his role is changing. Buckwalter still is a complementary player to star senior swingman Can Oztamur on a rapidly improving team with a talented senior guard in Elijah Bey. But the Lions are 9-1, undefeated in their division, and looking for all the world like a squad that could beat any team in South Jersey in large part because...

It didn't seem to matter who took the shot for Shawnee. And that was the point. A host of teammates helped build a lead early in the game when the team's star player got into foul trouble. And when Timber Creek made a late push, every player on the Shawnee girls' basketball team responded as the Renegades, ranked No. 2 in South Jersey by the Inquirer, walked away a 52-39 winner at home over the fifth-ranked Chargers on Tuesday night. "We trust each other. These are the situations we work on in practice, and I knew we could pull this win out," said senior point guard Taylor Ryan.

Jamal Holloway said he was "exhausted. " No wonder. The Camden junior played all 44 minutes, generating 23 points with 13 rebounds as the Panthers outlasted Shawnee, 85-79, in triple overtime on Thursday night in an Olympic Conference instant classic. Junior guard Brad Hawkins scored 27 points and senior guard Rasool Hinson added 17 for Camden (6-1), the No. 2 team in The Inquirer Top 20. Senior forward Luke Cooper scored 24 points and senior guard Alec Warren scored 23 for No. 18 Shawnee (4-2)

When Camden Catholic boys' basketball coach Matt Crawford saw that his team was ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer last week, he knew what would come next. "We are going to experience everybody's best shot," he said. Yet the Irish's shot is not too bad, either, as they proved Friday with a 55-46 win over visiting Shawnee in the opening interdivisional game for both Olympic Conference teams. Crawford was also proven correct in earning the opposition's best shot. The final score was deceiving.

Nikola Williams is nothing if not fearless. Thirteen seconds into the third quarter, with her team trailing, the scrappy senior forward was airborne. She crashed into a 6-foot-3 center who had been a dominant force all game. And, somehow, she connected on a reverse layup before drawing a foul and falling hard to the floor. The message was clear. "It comes down to that no-fear attitude that Shawnee brings," Williams said. "I've gone up against bigger girls my whole life. It doesn't mean anything.

For the last 11 seasons, a senior has worn the No. 44 jersey for the Shawnee football team. It's a special honor to carry forward the memory and commemorate the spirit and enthusiasm of Nick Garner, a Medford Youth Athletic Association football player in the 1990s who died at the age of 9 of a heart condition. Jake Parola knew the significance of the special number. He was a MYAA football star, playing as a seventh- and eighth-grader for coach Rob Garner, Nick's father. Parola knew the legacy of some of the athletes who had worn the No. 44, guys such as Zach Hudson and Kyle Wigley and Mike Ansberry and Anthony DiOrio.

Jake Parola had a great game in the third quarter: 19 carries, 109 yards, two touchdowns. But those 12 minutes summed up the South Jersey Group 4 championship game as well as the entire season for Parola and his Shawnee teammates. Running behind a powerful offensive line, Parola finished with 159 yards and three touchdowns on 37 carries Sunday night as Shawnee beat Timber Creek, 28-7, in a long-awaited sectional title-game rematch at Rowan University. "He's an animal," senior offensive tackle Eric Hawkinson said of Parola.

It is a story of remarkable consistency, so it shouldn't be surprising that Shawnee's football team has yet to collect the uniforms. The Renegades (10-1) will face Timber Creek (11-0) in the South Jersey Group 4 final at 3:30 p.m. Sunday. For the Renegades, it is their 10th sectional-final appearance in the last 20 years. Considering Shawnee annually plays among the most difficult schedules in South Jersey, that is truly an amazing feat. All this has come under Tim Gushue, a 1972 graduate of Shawnee who is in his 32d year as head coach.
