When my editor asked me if I would interview Charlie Schick, a baseball enthusiast who has lived and breathed South Jersey baseball for over thirty years, having never heard of Charlie Schick before I was not sure what to expect. What I found was a guy who not only can tell you that it was a South Jersey resident that scored the first run ever scored in the National League but also tell you who was the leading hitter on Shawnee's 1985 baseball team.

High School Track & Field:
Edgewood's Boys Getting On Track

SJSports Special Correspondent

Because Highland is undefeated and both Edgewood and Overbrook have one loss, a loss by Highland would set up the three way tie. Edgewood will have to rely on every single one of its team members. The runners, jumpers, and throwers will certainly have to be at their best to top Highland.
