Last season, Winslow Township coach Jared Price enjoyed a strong debut season, going 19-8 overall and earning a tie for the Olympic Conference Patriot Division title with Shawnee and Timber Creek. The Eagles appeared to have a contending team this year but suffered a setback when their best player, 6-foot-6 senior Shawn Valentine, decided to attend the Phelps School, a Pennsylvania prep school. Valentine had made an oral commitment during the summer to attend Rider and said that attending prep school would benefit him academically.

The second season in South Jersey will begin in about three weeks, and there are plenty of boys' basketball teams, such as Winslow Township, that hope the next one is better than the first. The Eagles, under first-year head coach Norm Ingram, have gone through assorted growing pains, but the chance to start all over in the one-and-done NJSIAA Tournament is certainly appealing. And even though Winslow Township won't be considered among the favorites in the South Jersey Group 3 tournament, the Eagles can't be simply overlooked, either.

Triton and Winslow Township started this football season in difficult fashion but are the only Burlco/Olympic Liberty teams with undefeated division records. That gives their meeting Friday night at Triton extra significance. The winner will be in sole possession of first place. "I'm excited with the way we've come along," Winslow coach Mike McBride said, "but we'll have a serious, serious test Friday. We'll see how far we've come. " Winslow lost its first two games - dropping hard-fought decisions to Washington Township and Camden, teams currently ranked fourth and fifth, respectively, in South Jersey by The Inquirer - before defeating Cherry Hill West, Shawnee and Timber Creek.

Kemp Carr believes Winslow Township can be one of the best football programs in South Jersey. "It's time to wake the sleeping giant," said Carr, who has been hired as Winslow Township's new coach. Carr turned Penns Grove into a South Jersey small-school power during 10 seasons as the Red Devils' head coach. His 2012 team went 12-0, won the South Jersey Group 1 title and set a state record for points with 621 (a per-game average of 51.7). Carr hopes to create the same kind of success at Winslow Township, which is a Group 3 program in football.

But Winslow Township's Gabby Bennett was still competitive. Keeping with her habit all season, she wouldn't tell anyone where she was working out. "Every runner wants to keep their secret weapon," Bennett said. "If I tell you, I'd have to kill you. " When she finally budged, Bennett revealed she's been traveling an hour away three times a week for the last year to train at Competitive Edge Sports in King of Prussia.

It's easy to see that Darnell Maisonet is a terrific baseball player. It's easy to hear that, too. "He never shuts up," Winslow Township coach Keith Regn said of his senior centerfielder and leadoff hitter. Regn was offering a compliment, because Maisonet is loud in the best kind of baseball way - issuing a steady stream of near-nonsensical but relentlessly positive chatter and unwavering support for his teammates. "I just love the game," Maisonet said. "I love to play and I love to win and I love to see my teammates do well.

Jessica Frantes answered a knock at her door in a sparkly tulle skirt, a flower headband in her hair, and gazed up to see Santa Claus on the front steps. The 5-year-old's smile only widened when Santa - played by a Winslow Township police officer - led her to a sleigh filled with presents. It was a day of hugs and tears for family and friends of Jessica, who saw her mother killed just five months ago - and for the men and women who responded to the scene that day. Police say Jennifer Bongco, 42, was stabbed more than 50 times by her boyfriend, Kevin Ambrose, near her home on July 25. Ambrose then dropped Jessica off at home, authorities say, before dumping Bongco's body on the side of the road a few blocks away.
