High School Softball:
Eustace Wins Pitcher's Duel

Saturday, April 11, 1998

By Crystal Parker

Bishop Eustace is considered to be one of the best softball teams in South Jersey and predicted to win the Olympic National Division again this year. Coach Mike Sacca would put his defending Group B state champions up against a very tough Padua Academy team from Wilmington, Delaware. This would turn out to be a classic pitching dual between Eustace's Megan Johnston and Padua's Julianne Lovejoy. Both pitchers had control of their game and kept most batters off the bases. The scoreless game continued until the bottom of the sixth inning where Eustace plated the winning run.

It was a day where runs would be scored in bunches. Well, at least that was the case for Washington Township. They would bat around plus two in the second inning and rolled past Camden Catholic 12 - 2 in an Olympic Conference game. Township's Rob Egan highlighted the inning with a three-run homerun and Brett Munch contributed a two-run double.

High School Baseball:
Chiefs Get Their First Win

Play Ball! That's the sound you would hear all around South Jersey high school ball parks. The only thing missing was the warm temperatures and bright sunny skies. When Highland went to Cherokee High School, both teams were greeted with light rain and cold temperatures. Each player was trying to find a way to keep warm and get them through seven innings of baseball. It would be Cherokee who would heat up for a come from behind victory and defeat Highland 12-6 for their first win of this young 1998 season.

High School Lacrosse:
Lady Chiefs Take Care of Business

Cherokee came to Cherry Hill East for their second game after a hard fought win against Delran. The Lady Chiefs were predicted by many in the pre-season to be the best in South Jersey, so it would be interesting to see how they faired against the Lady Cougars, a team that statistically they should beat.

Golf Preview:
Cherokee Expects to Compete With the Best

The Cherokee High School golf team is expecting a good season, despite losing some key players after their 20-5 record last year, notably letter winners Jon Guise, Per Andersson, and Karl Magnusson. Experienced players returning include seniors Tony Rubino and Josh Smargiassi, as well as sophomore Hugh Arbuthnot.

"We will be a good team," said coach Paul Budniak. "When we play well, we will be able to compete with the best in our division. We need someone to step up and replace Magnusson, who often shot below 40. Tony Rubino could be #1, with Josh Smargiassi at #2. Other possibilities are Greg Voorhees (a senior), Hugh Arbuthnot, and Doug Cusick (a sophomore)."
