KINGSTON COLEMAN Bishop Eustace team carries off manager Bob Wengert after win Bishop Eustace wins Parochial B title, 5-0 Bishop Eustace and Sacred Heart of Vineland each won NJSIAA state baseball championships yesterday in the Parochial finals held at Mercer County Park. Eustace defeated Paul VI of Clifton, 5-0, to capture Parochial B, led by John Walker's two-hit pitching. Walker, who threw a four-hitter in the South Jersey final, struck out seven, and was touched for hits only by Paul VT's ( 16-9) John Torchia. Eustace (1S-7) picked up four runs in the fifth inning with two outs, as Chris Conte and Bob Rumer singled in runs, and Matt Gass followed with a two-run single. Walker finishes with , an 8-1 record. In Parochial C, Sacred Heart downed Montclair Immaculate, S-2, behind Stan Burzinski (8-0). Designated hitter Martin Murray ripped a three-run homer to left field in the second inning to start the win. Camden Catholic's bid to take Parochial A was stopped by Roselle Catholic, 3-1, in a meeting of sophomore pitchers. Roselle's Andy Ortiz got the win with six effective innings of relief work, and Jim Gibson took the loss by giving up an RBI triple to Pat Petti and a run-scoring single to Steve Crassi in the second inning. . In the Diamond Classic quarterfinals, St. Joseph's of Camden scored another upset, ousting Cherry Hill West, 2-1, at Haddon Township. Jim Mason was the winner, allowing four hits, and John D'Alessandro drove home the deciding run off Wayne Miller. Washington Township routed Cherry Hill East, 11-0, at Haddon-field, scoring nine runs in the first inning on six singles, a double, two walks, and an error. Mike Moore went 3-for-3 for Township, which plays St. Joseph's in" Tuesday's semifinal at Eastern. The other semifinal will match Shawnee and Millville on Tuesday at Camden County College after each won second-round games yesterday. Shawnee eliminated Pennsauken, 6-4, with John Odorisio's three-run homer and Bob Sebra's pitching, and Millville (16-8) handled Paul VI, 4-2, as Mike Cordero delivered a game-winning two-run double in support of Jeff Beebe. , Rancocas Valley clinched the Burlington County Liberty League with a 7-1 win over Lenape. Giuseppe Harris singled, doubled, and tripled for three Rancocas (19-2J runs. Woodbury's Lewis wins 3 sprint events By Sam Carchidi oiipnnl to Thm InqmrBr Last Saturday, in the rains at Toms River South, Lori Lewis scored an impressive triple, including a state record-setting time of SS.6 seconds in the 440, as Woodbury High captured the NJSIAA South Jersey Girls' Group 1 championship. Yesterday, at Jackson Township High School, Lewis said the early morning sun had "drained" her, and that "I do better in the rain." This was after, the splendid and drained senior had scored individual sprint victories winning the 100 (11.0), 220 (24.8) and 440 (57.1) and helping Woodbury stay alive in' the NJSIAA Girls' Track and Field State Group championships. It was, however, before the rains came, postponing the final two events the 440 and the mile relays until Tuesday at 2 p.m. ' Woodbury, which is going after its third straight State Group 1 title, moved into second place, 2 points behind Highland Park, after finishing third in the mile relays. Then the rains came. Earlier, the Tundering Herd was aided by Val Green's win in the 110-yard hurdles (14.7) and second-place finish in the 440. Clayton finished the afternoon in fourth-place with 19 points, well behind Highland Park (45). The Clippers got a fine performance from freshman Emma Painter, who won the shot put (40-84) and finished second in the discus. Glassboro's Anna Stewart also was a winner, capturing the high jump with a 17-8V4 leap. Paul VI held an 18-17 lead in Group 3. The Eagles-were paced by Doreen Startare and Carolyn Willis, each of whom scored first and third-place finishes. Willis won the 440 in S8.S, while finishing third in the 880 2:19.5). Star-tare broke the South Jersey record of 5:13.3 in the mile with a 5:07.8 clocking. She also placed third in the two-mile. Leoia Toomer helped Edgewood with wins in the 100 and 220-yard dashes and a fifth-place finish in the long jump. In Group 2, Haddon Heights, behind a big effort by Kathy Rankins, held fifth place with 12 points, five behind first-place Point Pleasant Boro. Rankins scored wins in the high jump (17-10'2) and 100-yard dash (11.1). Willingboro and Pennsauken each captured a dozen points in Group 4, five behind the leader, Columbia. The Indians' Michele Glover tied a state record with a 10.7 victory in the 100. She also won the 220 in 24.3. Willingboro, meanwhile, was sparked by Carol Lewis' 17-SVi triumph in the long jump. Camden found itself in sixth place with 11 points. The Panthers, however, are top-seeded in the two remaining relays. Holy Spirit's distance standout, Mo-nique Purcell, also accounted for a South Jersey record performance, clocking 10:56.7 to beat the old mark of 11:03.1 by Gateway's Pan Adams, two years ago. Schalick wins softball by beating Cedar Grove Schalick won the first state championship in the school's brief history by completing an unbeaten girls softball season with an 8-2 victory over Cedar Grove in the NJSIAA Group One state final tournament game yesterday at Mercer County Park. Sharon Hawk (23-0) got the win, allowing just two unearned runs, and the offense was led by Donna Whitson's two-run double in the sixth inning and Hawk's two-run double in the seventh, breaking open a close game. Gateway (18-3) also picked up a Kate championship, whipping Queen of Peace 6-2 in Group Two and handing the North Jersey champs, now (19-1), their first loss of the season. Maureen Tighe's first-nining triple scored Marge Cromley for the first run, and Linda Hutchinson opened the second with a home run. Hutchinson finished the game with three hits and three RBI, and Donna Malone? was the winning pitcher, throwing a shutout for six innings. Triton was beaten in the Group Three final, 1-0 by Ramapo (22-4). Winning pitcher Debbie Leach drove in the game's only run in the fourth stanza, and Triton's (18-2) Maureen Williams was left on third base in both the fifth and sixth innings.

Clearview's baseball team returned just two starters from a squad that won the South Jersey Group Two title last year, but one of the two Jim Sharp-had recently warmed to the task of keeping the Pioneers alive in the Olympic National Conference race. Sharp struck out 18 Overbrook hitters in seven innings for a 4-0 no-hitter last Saturday, and followed that effort with three innings of relief work on Tuesday. The Inquirer's Athlete of the Week fanned nine of the 10 West Deptford hitters he - faced, winning a 5-4 decision and boosting his record to 6-4. "Jim has been excellent the last few times out," said Clearview coach Craig Harper. "Since the weather got good and warm, he has been overpowering . . . noticeably more effective. His fast ball really moves, and he has outstanding control with his curve." Sharp fell behind on just three hitters in his no-hit performance, according to Harper, who returned to coach the Pioneers after a three-year absence, and has struck out 84 men in 64 innings. "He couldn't miss," Harper added. "It seemed that almost every hitter was facing an 0-1 count after one pitch, and the hitters all became very defensive. There wasn't a single ball to the outfield." Sharp was 9-2 as a junior and a key part of Clearview's championship season, but watched all of his teammates graduate except catcher Jeff Datz, who also does some pitching. This year, Sharp's record has dropped off with the league's improved quality, but he has also improved as a pitcher and as an outfielder. L Jim Sharp "He has been just phenomenal in cen-terfield," Harper said. "He made a catch against Eastern which not only saved the ball game, but was one of the best catches I've ever seen in high school baseball. He has stolen 8 bases in 8 attempts, and he's a leader type of kid he tries to fire the other kids up." Sharp has applied to both Glassboro State and Biscayne (Fla.) Colleges, but Harper says the left hander has been well-scouted, and may even be drafted next year. Wherever he goes, he will be looking for some warm weather. . . .

LORI LEWIS ran a state record SS.6 quarter-mile to cap a3-victory sprint performance, and lead Woodbury's girls track team to its third straight NJSIAA South Jersey Group One championship. JIM GARAVENTI and BRIAN STORK, Moorestown 's first doubles team, won a clinching 2-6, 6-2, 6-0 victory over North Jersey champ Millburn to wrap up the Quakers' 3-2 team win and make Moorestown South Jersey's first NJS IAA state public school tennis champion ever. BRIAN MINIMIER of Burlington shot an even-par 72 at Ramblewood Country Club in Mt. Laurel to win the Burlington County Open golf tournament by a S-shot margin in the 19-team field. PATTY McMANUS helped Triton reach the NJSIAA state final round of 'the softball tournament by knocking in a run with a triple, bringing home two more teammates in the next inning with a ground ball, and scoring the winning run in the bottom of the seventh. BOB SEBRA, a sophomore righthander, struck out 6, and threw his second no-hitter of the year, 1-0, against Pennsville, which also started a pitcher who had thrown a no-hitter earlier in the season. JIM GIBSON pitched Camden Catholic to the South Jersey Parochial A baseball title, 3-2, over Notre Dame, and maintained his perfect record (7-0) during his sophomore season.

J.-"Woodbury High is definitely a school of front-runners in all sports. If they get down or get behind, they fall apart. It's my job as coach to bring them together and make the kids believe." So said the Woodbury track coach, Howard Staeger. Staeger did his job successfully for the seventh straight time at the NJSIAA state championship meet yesterday, leading a small but talented Herd squad to yet another Group One team title. Willingboro was beaten in Group Four by Trenton and Planf ield; Asbury Park captured Group Two, and Monmouth Regional prevailed in the Group Three competition. Woodbury's championship was by the slimmest margin of the seven titles, scoring 32 points to beat Point Pleasant Beach by one point and Penns Grove by six, and not sealing the outcome until Pat McCaffrey matched his career best pole vault of 13 feet, 9 inches for second place a full hour after the rest of the meet had ended. Junior Keith Washington won the long jump at 22 feet, IVi inches and the 440 in 50.2 seconds and anchored the Herd's winning 3:26.7 mile relay. Dick Caton, another junior, placed second in both the 880 (1:55.1) and mile (4:22.1) to Point Pleasant Beach's John Regan (1:54.2, 4:18.3), and Bill Pendleton earned an important point with fifth place in the 440. "We had a pretty rough dav of it," Staeger said. "We don't have the type of depth team to win by 20 or 30 points anymore. Last year, we had to win the mile relay to beat Roselle Park, but this was the closest. "I wrote down t h e number of points we'd get before the meet and signed it. I said 33, and I also said Penns Grove would get 24 (Penns Grove had beaten Woodbury by 18 in last week's sectionals). I gotta give Keith all the credit in the world because he had a bad cold, but still had three firsts. He's a helluva competitor." Washington had not trained since being taken sick on Thursday, but got off his winning long jump on his final effort after fouling on two previous attempts. He then left the pit, and ran a 50.5 440 trial, and admitted to "really hurting, but I had to put out because I was behind." In other Group One highlights. South Jersey hurdlers took 1-2-3 in the 120 highs with Penns Grove's Rodney Wise (14.3) and Ed Ross (3rd), and Bordentown's Joe Win-ningham (14.4). Palmyra sprinters Butch Birkhead (10.0) and Derek Holloway (22.5) got firsts, and Burlington Township's Alan Cngnigni took the 330 hurdles in 38 9, catching Manchester's Oscar Valmon at the tape when Valmon hit the final hurdle. Haddonfield sophomore Jim Smith, Pauisboro sprinter Charles Cooper, and Williamstown's Derek Frazier and John Marino were the area standouts in Group Two. Smith picked up a 103.5-dcgree fever last Sunday by picking up what he called "the spotless measles." He rested for three days, then came back to win the state race in 9:20.2, pulling away from Gateway's Mike Mantini (9:27.1) on the final lap. Cooper , set an all-group record in the 220 of 21.3, but the mark lasted until the Group Four final when Westfield's Butch Woolfolk blazed to a 21.1. Earlier, .Cooper had been a victim of a false start in the 100 final, eliminating him from the event. For Williamstown, Frazier launched the best discus throw of his career and fourth best ever in South Jersey, reaching 172 feet, 1 inch. The 6-foot, 200-pound senior, headed to Gloucester County College in the fall, also placed fifth in the shot put (50-8), and his teammate Marino won the mile in 4:19.7. "I stopped lifting (weights) half- way through the season, and it helped my flexibility when I did," said Frazier explaining his recent sudden improvement. "I haven't got a style in the shot put that I can use my strength with, but our coach (Bob Fuller) threw the discus when he was going to our school, and he has helped a lot." Marino, who won the state indoor mile title in 1Q77. but missed last year's outdoor meet with an injury, was anything but confident about yeaterday's race. South Jersey had no Group Three champions, but Collingswood's Ken Travis (9:35.1) was second in the two-mile, his teammate John McShay was runnerup in the mile (4:24.91, and third places were posted by Edgewood quarter-miler Tim Robinson (49.1), and Triton javelin thrower Mike Barnett (185-8). Willingboro failed to produce a champion in Group Four, as Carl Lewis settled for a second in the long jump (22-5Mi), fourth in the 100. and third in the 220, (21.8). Marc Dickerson was eliminated from the high hurdle final with a false start, and was third in the 330's at 38.6. The feature event of the Group hired out to be the javelirr. Scotch Plains' Dave Farnsworth won at 223-6, Rancocas Valley's Drew Forbes was second at 221-7, and Willing-boro's Dwavne Clark took third at 216-4. 1'
