Hammonton High School is one of the most successful athletic programs in the Cape-Atlantic League, especially in football. But the Blue Devils could soon be members of the Tri-County Conference. Hammonton is "exploring" the possibility of leaving the Cape-Atlantic and joining the Tri-County, Hammonton athletic director Frank Torcasio said Thursday. "There's a bunch of different reasons," said Torcasio, who declined to explain further the school's rationale at this preliminary stage of the process.

Hammonton High School has officially applied to join the Tri-County Conference, Pitman athletic director Mike McAleer said Friday. McAleer, president of the Tri-County Conference, and other conference officials toured the Cape-Atlantic League school's athletic facilities on Friday. The tour was part of the process by which Hammonton could be admitted to the Tri-County Conference for the 2014-15 school year. McAleer said Tri-County officials would discuss Hammonton's application during an athletic directors meeting in February and again during a principals/superintendents meeting in March.

The Tri-County Conference, long known for the success of its football teams, has shown this season that it features a pretty good brand of boys' soccer as well. For years, people have said that the Tri-County did not measure up to the Olympic Conference, but, because of the size of its schools, it should not. The big-school Royal Division comprises mainly Group 3 schools. It is unfair to compare that division with the Olympic American, which consists of large Group 4 schools. Still, the Tri-County is more than competitive.

When you talk about South Jersey wrestling, sooner or later (and it's usually sooner), the conversation turns to the Tri-County Conference. Some of the great wrestling programs in South Jersey are in the Tri-Co. There are great wrestlers every year at such places as Delsea, Williamstown, Pennsville, Penns Grove, Glassboro and Pitman. Here's a look at some of the Tri-County names you'll be reading about this winter: ROYAL DIVISION. Pennsville returns almost every starter from last year's 17-2 squad.

Tri-County Conference administrators yesterday voted to allow the local school boards to decide whether Overbrook should be admitted into the conference for the 2002-03 school year. If at least 11 of the 16 school boards vote to admit Overbrook, the school will join the conference in September, according to Woodstown athletic director Glenn Merkle, who serves as the Tri-County president. Highland, Wildwood and Gloucester County Institute of Technology are not permitted to vote on conference matters until September, when they join the Tri-County.

John Oberg is out. Deptford and Gloucester Catholic are in. Penns Grove is moving. Welcome to the 1993 version of football in the realigned, revamped Tri- County Conference. It promises to be competitive, fun and, if nothing else, different. The Tri-County was formed in the 1930s, and the league claims to be the longest continuously playing conference in the state. But it seems safe to say that the most recent changes in the Tri-County are the most sweeping since the league split into two divisions for the 1984 season.

Overbrook High yesterday learned that it would join the Tri-County Conference in September. By a unanimous vote, Tri-County administrators accepted Overbrook into the conference, according to Gloucester athletic director Leon Harris, the conference vice president. The vote ended a topsy-turvy year for the Pine Hill-based school. In September, Overbrook was given permission to withdraw from the Olympic Conference after the current school year. Overbrook administrators felt its Group 3 school no longer could compete with the Group 4-heavy Olympic Conference in most sports.

Winslow Township is the latest school to consider exiting the Olympic Conference. Winslow Township athletic director Eric Ball said that the school, a charter member of the Olympic Conference in 1959, has applied for membership in the Tri-County Conference. "We're just exploring this from a competitive balance standpoint," Ball said Friday night. The Olympic Conference lost two longtime members this school year. Pennsauken joined the Burlington County League, and Triton joined the Tri-County Conference.
