At first glance in the layup line or even in the games, this appears to be a very beatable team. The only problem is that any team that thought it had a chance to defeat the Haddonfield boys' basketball squad this season so far has ended up frustrated. The Bulldogs are 26-0 and the only unbeaten team in the state. Throw in the fact that Haddonfield is The Inquirer's No. 1-ranked South Jersey team, and there will be a big enough bull's-eye when the Bulldogs begin the South Jersey Group 2 tournament with Tuesday's opener against Deptford.

Wrestling is a demanding enough sport when you win a lot of bouts. It's doubly difficult when you walk off the mat, again and again, on the short side of the scoreboard. That's what makes Dustin Zuzulock's dramatic work at the Region 8 tournament so impressive, and that's why everybody in the West Deptford camp is so happy for the soft-spoken senior. "It couldn't happen to a better kid," West Deptford coach Christian Scannell said of Zuzulock, a 106-pounder who has advanced to Saturday's semifinals with a pair of overtime victories.

NEW YORK In a cozy New York theater this weekend, under the auspices of academia and art, the circumstances facing a small, industrial New Jersey borough were placed under a new lens. More than a year after the November 2012 train derailment in Paulsboro spewed vinyl chloride, sparking a litany of lawsuits, a South Jersey native has staged a play inspired by the accident. Written by 2002 Paulsboro High School alumna Nicole Pandolfo, Pump is a fictionalized version of the aftermath of the derailment, which in the play releases toxic toluene.
