The Cherokee Chiefs and the Moorestown Quakers came together for a meeting of two undefeated teams. Cherokee had been picked by many preseason polls to be number one in South Jersey, so Moorestown had something to prove. The Quakers also remembered how the Chiefs knocked them out of the playoffs last year.

Moorestown's Petrone Shuts Down Delran

It was another example of being patient and not losing their cool for Moorestown High School. After striking first blood in the first inning with two runs, the Quakers broke a 2-2 tie with 7 runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to defeat Delran 9-2. Rocky Petrone came into the game in the third inning for Mike Rhoads and got the win for Moorestown. Petrone's second win of the season was supported by the defense and Rhoads' second homer of the year.

This was a classic example of the unexpected. Millville, considered one of the top teams in South Jersey High School baseball, visited Highland on Monday. Highland's starting pitcher Joe Ruple held returning star seniors Steve Setser and Jim Rhubart of Millville in check. Ruple pitched a complete game and had four strikeouts in the non-league 10-2 victory. Neil Tannabaum and Mike Murphy both had 3 hits each for Highland.

High School Softball:
Eustace Wins Pitcher's Duel

Saturday, April 11, 1998

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.
