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.

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.

Joe Kessler has won a lot of boys' basketball games throughout his 29 years with Shawnee. And his 600th came on Thursday night, thanks to a 57-48 win at Winslow Township. Following the victory, Kessler credited all of his current and former players and assistants, never once stopping to think of himself. "Getting to something like that, it's not about me. It's about the program," said the five-time state-champion coach. Leading the way for the Renegades in the win was Dylan Deveney, who scored 18 points in the Olympic Conference game.

Shawnee's practices all begin the same way, with coach Joe Kessler pushing that big wheeled cage onto the floor and tossing the basketballs to the players. "Nobody else can do it," Shawnee assistant coach J.R. Gillern said. Shawnee's practices all end the same way, too, with the "white" team scoring a basket at the same end of the court. "Has to be the white team [first string, wearing the white jerseys], has to be at this end," Gillern said. When something works for Kessler, he sticks with it - whether it's the same turkey sandwich on game day, the same parking spot outside the Shawnee gymnasium, the same warm-up music.

The number on the banner was impressive. But it wasn't the number Chris Palladino talked about most after the win. "I didn't even realize this during the game," Palladino said, "but I can't believe how many former players were here tonight. " "That's what's really special," she added. "That's what it's all about. " Palladino won the 600th game of her legendary coaching career Friday night when her Camden Catholic girls' basketball team topped Shawnee, 58-37, in front of a packed home crowd in the season opener.

Noah Ellison grabbed his quarterback before the game and told him to cut loose with his passes in the South Jersey Group 4 title game. "He told me, 'Dev, throw it up, and I'll go get it,' " Timber Creek sophomore quarterback Devin Leary said. On the last drive of the last game of the long season, Leary threw the football high in the air. Twice. Ellison went up and caught it. Twice. The two clutch completions enabled Timber Creek to run out the clock and secure a 28-24 victory over archrival Shawnee in an instant classic of a sectional final at Rowan University.

Shawnee High School football coach Tim Gushue remembers driving back from a game at Penn State with his future star quarterback in the backseat, diagramming plays on a clipboard. "He was five years old," Gushue said of Mike Welsh, the Renegades' standout signal-caller. That would be a great story if that was the full reach of Gushue's connection with the athlete who will enter Sunday night's South Jersey Group 4 championship game with a chance to make history for himself and his team.

His first varsity start was the opening game of his freshman season on Sept. 7, 2012. "Kingsway," Shawnee senior David Gajderowicz recalled the other day. "They were big. I was really, really nervous. " Gajderowicz was a 14-year-old, thrust into the starting lineup of one of South Jersey's strongest programs. More than that, he was a defensive lineman. "That almost never happens," Shawnee coach Tim Gushue said. "You see it sometimes with wide receiver/running back types. Defensive line is something different.

It was one of those moments, Michael Welsh said, when you're not exactly focused on the bigger picture. It was fourth and goal from the 1-yard line. The game was tied late in the fourth quarter. It was Thanksgiving Day - and across from Welsh was his Shawnee football team's oldest rival. Sure, the Renegades' have a bigger game on the horizon. They play Timber Creek next week for the South Jersey Group 4 championship. But somewhere along the line Thursday, an essentially meaningless showdown with Lenape turned into an emotionally charged, smash-mouth game.

NEPTUNE, N.J. - After the game, Lexie Palladino took a moment to sit on the turf alone, reluctant to walk off the field for the final time in a Shawnee soccer uniform. "We didn't want it to end," Palladino said after her team fell, 1-0, to Freehold Township in the girls' soccer Group 4 state semifinals. "It's heartbreaking because we know how close we came to our ultimate goal - a state championship. " Fate simply wasn't on the Renegades' side Tuesday at Summerfield school in Neptune.
