Between rounds of Cherry Hill East High School's victory at the Southern Regional Mock Trial Competition yesterday, Jon Sagot insisted that there was no pressure on him and his teammates to match the school's earlier success. Sure, it was only two years ago that Cherry Hill East cruised through New Jersey competition and on to Albuquerque, where it won the national mock-trial championship. Indeed, the school has a long tradition of successful mock-trial teams that have already won three state titles in New Jersey's 18-year history in the competition.

The North Penn school board is considering a proposal that would reorganize the district's current three-region election system into one in which board members would be elected at-large. Board President Patricia Q. Davis and Thomas Whalen, vice president, recommended the proposal because of the growing population disparity between the district's central region and the larger northern and southern regions, Davis said. According to school district census figures, the central region has a population of 16,556; the northern region, 35,041; the southern region, 32,202.

Members of the Gloucester County Utilities Authority said last night that they would consider building a $50 million to $200 million public sewer system in the county's southern region if municipalities there agreed to fund the project. A decision to construct a sewer plant would pave the way for development in the mostly rural southern end of the county and could determine the growth patterns for the next 25 years. In a special GCUA meeting last night, officials said they were soliciting interest and information from the communities that would benefit from the system - Greenwich, East Greenwich, Logan, Woolwich, Swedesboro, Harrison and South Harrison Townships, as well as Elk and Franklin Townships and parts of Monroe.
