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.

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.

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. But all that stuff was cast in a different light when these teenagers and their coaches paused to consider the deepest connection...

For Joe Eisele, it wasn't just about making plays. It also was about making amends. "I was definitely determined," Eisele said after leading St. Augustine Prep to an 11-6 victory over Shawnee on Thursday morning in a clash of the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in The Inquirer's South Jersey Top 10 rankings. Eisele, a senior attack and Delaware recruit, scored four goals and added two assists as St. Augustine Prep emerged with the upper hand in a physical battle between fierce rivals in unseasonably harsh conditions.

There's a contrast in Lily Argyle, as there is in many great athletes, that can be jarring at first. When she plays lacrosse, Argyle breathes fire. She's tenacious and aggressive. She's imposing despite standing just 5-foot-3. She is one of the best, and, one could say, one of the most feared girls' lacrosse goalies in the state. In essence, her on-field persona is the polar opposite of what she's like off the field. Shawnee coach Aimee Seward described Argyle as soft-spoken, exceedingly polite, sometimes even a bit reserved.

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.
