Timber Creek softball coach Marci Logan let Brianna Fisher work through her struggles Saturday, and it paid off. Fisher pitched all seven innings and had an RBI double as the hosts won the Charger Classic final over Woodstown, 9-7. Woodstown entered the seventh inning down by four runs and closed the gap to two. Fisher withstood the late rally by getting a fly ball to right field with a runner on base to end it.

Surrounded by offensive weapons - including multiple Division I-caliber wide receivers - Timber Creek's 5-foot-11 quarterback, Dan Williams, is easy to overlook at first. But it's impossible to overlook him after you've seen him play. He's strong. He's fast. He's accurate. And on Friday night, in front of a packed crowd on the road, Williams was also an efficient game manager, leading Timber Creek (3-1), ranked No. 4 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, to a 25-18 win over No. 2 Williamstown (3-1)

On a September night that felt like October, Timber Creek looked to be in December form. Dan Williams attributed that to April and May. "You work hard in April and May, then you're ready to ball out in September," Williams said after leading visiting Timber Creek to a 34-7 victory over Camden Catholic in the West Jersey Football League Constitution Division opener for both teams on Friday night. Williams, a senior quarterback who passed for five touchdowns in last season's South Jersey Group 4 title game, picked up where he left off last December with a sensational performance: 22-for-28 passing for 279 yards and three touchdowns.

They saved their best for last. They capped a perfect season with a priceless performance.

It was the surest sign that Amanda Riiff would start the game hot. "I couldn't hit a shot in warm-ups," she said. "Nothing. " In four seasons as one of the area's top outside shooters, Riiff has been nothing if not resilient. The trick, she said, is to keep your confidence. "I knew I could do it," said Riiff, a senior guard. "I just kept shooting, and when the game started, I felt it. " Riiff hit the first two shots she took, both three-pointers, and ultimately shot 4 for 7 from beyond the arc - in the first quarter - to send top-seeded Timber Creek to a 63-49 win over No. 8 Seneca on Wednesday night in the quarterfinals of the South Jersey Group 3 tournament.

For the first time in his life, Matt Hershey is the designated hitter. It's not too unusual, as he has been batting since he first played T-ball more than a decade ago. The Timber Creek senior conceded that he likes his role, but said it is weird not to play the field. "You've got to make sure that you contribute when you go up to bat," Hershey said. Hershey has been doing so thus far for the Chargers. After platooning in right field last year, Hershey has spent the beginning of this year as the DH from the No. 2 spot in the order.

On Dec. 17, the Woodrow Wilson girls' basketball team walked off the court a 60-54 loser to Immaculate Heart Academy. Wilson senior guard Chanelle Perry scored 24 points in that game, just less than half of her team's total. Ciarah Bennett scored 12, and no other player was in double figures for the Tigers. Just as basketball is a game of runs, so are seasons. And in a high school basketball season, comparing December to March can be like comparing basketball to field hockey.

At some point late in the first quarter, Lyayshia Stevens started thinking. And in a championship game, that's not always a good thing. Not in a deafeningly loud gym. Not with the game moving at a lightning pace. And not when thinking means taking time to dwell on the fact that this is the biggest stage of your career. "You can't think about it," Stevens said. "You just have to keep playing with all your heart. " Stevens, a junior guard, and her teammates did just that in Woodrow Wilson's thrilling, 65-59 win in overtime at top-seeded Timber Creek in Tuesday night's South Jersey Group 3 girls' basketball final.

John Amato is an unassuming member of an exclusive club. He's thinking it might be a good time to change that - for one weekend, anyway. Amato is a three-time region wrestling champion. Those guys are rare athletes, and they tend to carry themselves with a sure-footed swagger that reflects their success in this most demanding of sports. Amato is different. He walks softly and talks the same way. But he has decided, at the last stage of an illustrious career, that it might be time to put a little more edge in his attitude.

Muse said he visited Houston last summer and also received a home visit from Cougars coach Leroy Burrell, a former Olympian who went to Penn Wood High School in the Philadelphia suburbs.

First-year coach Christina McGovern has said throughout this season that she has yet to see her Shawnee girls' basketball team put together a complete game, to play its best for four consecutive quarters. That still might be true after Tuesday's 50-46 win over Timber Creek. But one dominant quarter was all it took. The Renegades outscored the Chargers, 17-6, in the opening period and held on in a game that kept them alive in a tight Olympic Conference Patriot Division race.

Andrew O'Neill wasn't seriously considering Sacred Heart University. But an old teammate and a new friend changed his mind. O'Neill, a senior at Washington Township who was a first-team All-South Jersey selection by The Inquirer as an all-purpose offensive player, committed to Sacred Heart on a football scholarship earlier this week. O'Neill also had an offer from Wagner. He made his decision after visits to Wagner and Sacred Heart the last two weekends. "It just felt like the right place for me," O'Neill said of Sacred Heart.
