Tuesday Oct. 25,1994 jT 1 OUTH ERSE Y bPORTS it Consistent Holy By CHRIS MACIEJEWSKI For the Courier-Post WEST WINDSOR - Playing remarkably consistent, the Holy Cross High School girls' tennis team captured the school's first Parochial A state championship Monday with a 3-2 win over Holy Angels at Mercer County Park. Montclair-Kimberley Academy won the Parochial B state title with a 4-1 win over Moorestown Friends, the South Jersey Parochial B champion. The wins earned both Holy Cross and Montclair-Kimberley berths in the Tournament of National leader Stephenson out for rest of year By TOM McGURK For the Courier-Post In a season which contained so many highs for Campbell College's Jenn Stephenson, it hit an unfortunate low last Saturday. The nation's leading scorer in NCAA Division I women's college soccer and a Delsea High School graduate, sustained a knee injury and will miss the remainder of the season. The freshman striker tore cartilage in her right knee 20 minutes into the Oct. 15 game with Central Florida. The injury happened away from the ball and was a non-contact situation according to Campbell College Sports Information Director Stan Cole. James Stephenson, Jenn's father, states the injury hasn't hampered his daughter's ability to walk. But, her lateral movement is non-existant. "At first, the doctors thought the injury was just a bad sprain," James Stephenson said. "But, after a couple of days, she still couldn't straighten her leg out completely." According to her father, Jenn will require surgery to "scope the knee" at a later date and will be back at full-speed in six weeks. He also stated that doctors will "check out the ligaments" around the knee including the anterior cruciate ligament, but none of the ligaments are feared to be damaged. Jenn Stephenson was unavailable for comment Monday night. In just its third-year, Campbell College is enjoying its best season at 9-8 and has two games remaining on its schedule. Despite the injury, Stephenson Haddonfield's rally beats Haddon Hts. Carolyn Tassini and Mandy Robinson led Haddonfield High School's field hockey team with a goal apiece in a 2-1 victory over Haddon Heights in a Colonial Conference game. Jill Gorecki's goal in the first half gave Haddon Heights the lead. Tassini tied it before half-time and Robinson scored the winning goal off a corner midway through the second half. Audubon stopped Woodbury 3-0 behind two goals from Meg Eggleston and one from Jennifer Tomkow. Colleen Smith had two assists and Erin Grelle earned the shutout. Audubon improved to 7-5-2. Cape-Atlantic League Atlantic City's Kelly Wilson recorded 16 saves while Holy Spirit's Julie Knisel had two in a scoreless tie. Atlantic City had 21 shots on goal. Christy Smith scored the game's only goal with 7:15 remaining in the first half as Buena blanked Hammonton 1-0. Kim Roberts notched the shutout. Lower Cape May rose above Middle Township 2-1 with a pair of goals from Karree Wright. Lower Cape May had 10 shots on goal while goalie Chris Knecht made two saves.

The seeds for the six-team Tournament of Champions will be announced after Wednesday's public state championships. Holy Cross (16-6) stormed to an early 2-0 lead over their erratic opponents, who lost for the ninth straight time in the Parochial A state final. Keely Crawbuck, the Lancers' No. 1 singles player, secured the first team point with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Maura Henninger. "We were really nervous before the match," Crawbuck, who brought every thing from lucky umnm still could have an outside shot at winning the national scoring title. Her total of 64 points (27 goals, 10 assists) was 19 points ahead of Oregon State's Valerie Williams at the start of last week's action. Williams had 18 goals and nine assists for 45 points. It hasn't taken long for Stephenson to rearrange the record books at Campbell. In fact, it has taken the scoring machine just 16 games. Stephenson has school marks for shots in a season (99), along with goals, assists and points. She also set game records for most shots (14) and goals (5), which she accomplished twice this season. She also tied the school record for most assists in a game with three. She was also named Trans America Athletic Conference's Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 2. Stephenson passed Christine Sadler on the all-time Fighting Camels list for goals and assists. Sadler, a junior, has dropped to second with 32 points and 20 goals. Goal scoring has been a natural ability for Stephenson. She's the all-time leading goal scorer in South Jersey history with 163 and ranks third on the state's all-time list. She passed Andrea Rubio's (Cherry Hill East) old South Jersey mark of 155 last season with a 46-goal season. Stephenson was a three-time All-South Jersey selection and was named 1993's Offensive Player of the Year. 3 Jamie Parente and Corrine Man-cini led Holy Cross to victory over Moorestown Friends, 3-0. Goalie Kelly Lynn gained the shutout. The win makes Holy Cross 8-4-2. Williamstown and Overbrook battled to a scoreless tie. Tarah Kern and B.D. Kindermann eached earned shutouts.

Sterling defeated Paul VI 1-0 when Jen Durkin scored 23:20 into the first half. Joyce Klauder recorded the shutout. Goals by Lara Litwornia, Lind-sey Gehris, Antonia Gentilello and Susan Napolitano led Shawnee to 4-2 triumph over Gateway. Gateway's goals came in the last five minutes of the game from Jessica Cucugliello and Pam Reim. Burlington County League Florence's Melissa Bond scored with 5:53 left in the game and tied the score at 1-1 against Pemberton. Heidi Harvey's goal assisted by Diana Sears was scored in the first half to take the lead. Cross wins state baseball cards to a good-luck teddy bear, said. "She made it much easier on me today. She went for a lot and kept hitting the ball out, which just gave me more confidence." Senior co-captain Kristen Rath improved her record to 14-11 and won Holy Cross' second point with a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 2 singles. "This is the perfect way to end of season," said Rath, who simply waited for her opponent, Kara Rooney, to make mistakes. "Pa- Tournament drive powers Breaks tie on pair of quick goals By TOM McGURK For the Courier-Post HADDONFIELD - If its tournament time, it's Delsea time. The Delsea High School girls' soccer team has developed a trend in recent years of turning its play up a notch when the postseason starts. The Crusaders did it again Monday when they raced to a 3-1 win over Haddonfield in the first round of the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Tournament. Tenth-seeded Delsea, which advanced to the finals of the tournament in 1992, will face Friday's winner between Moorestown and Washington Township. The second-round date is to be determined, but tournament rules state the game must be played before Friday, Nov. 4. Delsea's late season success can be explained in one word teamwork. "We're finally playing as a team now," center halfback Hope Stephenson said. "Earlier in the season, we weren't playing well because everybody was playing different positions. Now, we are set at every position and the chemistry is there." The defending state Group 3 champion showed some of its chemistry in the second half when the Crusaders scored two quick goals in the span of 4 minutes, 35 seconds and turned a 1-1 game into a 3-1 lead. "(The start of the second half) was the first time in a long time that we showed some intensity," Delsea coach Jamie McGroarty said. "We just have to learn to keep that intensity level up for 80 minutes instead of 15 minutes here and 15 Cherokee, Holy Cross post The Burlington County League Liberty Division advanced two teams through the first round of the South Jersey Coaches Association's Tournament Monday as Cherokee defeated Triton 3-0 and Holy Cross defeated Camden Catholic 4-0.

Tournament rules state second-round games must be played by Friday, Nov. 4. Despite a separated left shoulder, Cherokee's Traci Tapp managed to score a goal. Her team-leading 29th goal of the season came early in the first half and gave the Chiefs a 1-0 lead. Tapp, a senior, played only six minutes of the game. Cherokee got a huge lift from keeper Janel Schillig, who replaced starter Suzanne Krch, and made 10 saves for her first shutout. Krch was injured in last week's 3-2 win over Delran. Holy Cross raced out to a 2-0 lead in the first half and cruised to its 4-0 win over Camden Catholic. The Lancers got a goal from Megan Hosty early in the game tience is our weapon." Crawbuck and Rath needed a bit more patience as Anglea Niznik's 6-4, 6-1 win at third singles drew Holy Angels to within 2-1. But the Lancers didn't have to wait too long. Karen Rath, Kris-ten's sister, and Jodi Holmes clinched the championship with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Sarah Burch and Jennifer Roes at No. 2 doubles. "This has been our goal for four years," Karen Rath said. "We wanted a banner for the gym. It , 'fe.v,. S'v4 v4'"' ; ' ; ' " 5ssJ Passing fancy: Delsea's Hope can catch up during Monday's minutes there." With the win, McGroarty became a member of the 50-win club in just his third season. He has a 50-5-3 career record. Nicci Chamberlin got the Crusaders going in the second half when she took a loose ball following the tap-off and bolted to the left corner. Her shot, which was ticketed for the far post, hit a defender and trickled into the net just 26 seconds into the half. It was her team-leading 17th goal. and padded the lead with Amy Jones' penalty-kick conversion. Jones, a senior, netted two goals and brought her team-leading total to 10. Megan Lincoln stopped 11 shots en route to her six shutout of the season and her 46th of her career.

The Renegades struck back to tie the Liberty Division game 3-3 in the final minute. The Quakers, who travel to top-ranked Lenape for a 3:30 p.m. showdown Wednesday, trailed 1-0 at the half against Shawnee. They tied it 2-2 on a pair of second half goals by Jill Klatt, and went ahead on Meghan Strenski's goal in the first overtime. Shawnee came back to tie the game with just 49 seconds remaining in the second half on a goal by Megan Brooks. Willingboro (5-11-0) upset 17th-ranked Maple Shade 5-2 in an interdivision game. The Wildcats (11-5-0) carried a 1-0 lead at the half, but Group A crown took us four years, but we'll finally get to hang a tennis banner in the gym." Group B Moorestown Friends, which had defeated defending Group A champion Red Bank Catholic in the South Jersey final, fell hard to a deep Montclair-Kimberley Academy team. Anastasia Pozdniakova, the Foxes' top player, won easily, 6-0, 6-0, over Julie Porter, but Friends (16-4) couldn't win another match. "We had a great season," Friends coach Teri Pace said. "I thought we were about even with By Brian Porco, Courier-Post Stephenson makes a pass before Haddonfield's Kelly Lundren first-round Coaches Tournament game. Delsea won 3-1. " Stephenson followed with her 10th goal of the season minutes later when she headed in a crossing pass from Jen Dando. The two goals took the steam out of Haddonfield, which was making its first appearance in the Coaches Tournament.

"Their diagonal passing game is very strong and they Coaches Tournament wins Sharee Williams scored the first goal of her hat trick to tie it.
