Hello there Meghan was at an off-campus party in another Widener University student's basement. So was a guy she'd gone out with a few times, but was just not interested in. Mr. Not Right was in pursuit, and Meghan wasn't up for setting him straight. "I was trying to get away from him, and so I went up to the first guy I saw and said, 'Can you just please talk to me right now?' " "All right," Carmen said, figuring it was always good to meet someone new, and that he might as well see what was up with this woman.

The makeup of the Washington Township girls' basketball team has drastically changed, but the competitive spirit has not. Few teams were hit harder by graduation than the Minutemaids, whose senior class from last year took part in three consecutive South Jersey Group 4 titles before falling in the second round last season. Still, veteran coach Jenn Natale doesn't want any excuses that are often made with youth. And even though 5-foot-10 Ciara Keitt is the lone senior on the team, Natale isn't interested in rebuilding.

Donna Costa took over the Washington Township girls' basketball team seven years ago, after the nucleus of the three-time South Jersey Group 4 champion had graduated. Costa, who played on a Township team that won an Olympic Conference title in 1972, has managed to field competitive teams since starting the rebuilding project. But the Minutemaids hadn't been able to regain a place among the area's elite teams - until this season. Township is currently 12-1 and rated No. 2 in South Jersey by The Inquirer.

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. - They were rested and battle-tested after competing in South Jersey's deepest division and winning the Group 4 sectional tournament. They were resilient, twice rallying from deficits and putting the tying runs on base after they were down to their last strike in the seventh inning. They also were realistic. "That was the best team we played all year," Washington Township coach Bill Alvaro Jr. said after the Minutemen dropped an 8-6 decision to Central Jersey champion Jackson Memorial in Wednesday's state Group 4 semifinal at Rider University.

When the Gloucester Catholic baseball team looks back at past performance, it's almost always to draw strength and confidence from prior success. The Rams' mindset was different on Saturday.

Todd drove in three runs and junior right-hander Tyler Mondile pitched a one-hitter as Gloucester Catholic beat Lenape 11-0 in a Diamond Classic opener that was shortened to five innings by the 10-run rule.

The third time he broke his collar bone, it wasn't the physical pain or shock that bothered Jordan Dzierzgowski the most. He felt it right away. He knew it was broken. But what really hurt was the apparent logic that had settled in. "I just remember thinking that I knew the doctors were going to tell me that I couldn't play anymore, that this couldn't be just a coincidence and that I was prone to injury," he said. As it turns out, that thinking didn't hold up. Dzierzgowski, a senior midfielder for the Washington Township boys' lacrosse team, broke his collar bone three times in a nine-month span - a twisted stroke of fate that he persevered through.
