However, in Non-Public B No. 3 Sacred Heart on the right side of the bracket and No. 5 Gloucester Catholic on the left side,... Read more

Phil Anastasia: The strange firing of Rick Brown

Tuesday, May 10, 2011, 9:10 PM
Something is very strange about Camden Catholic's decision on Tuesday to fire Rick Brown as football coach. Consider the timing: May 10. Football coaches get fired in December. Or January or Feburary. Not in May. Brown, who was 37-25 in six seasons, swears he was completely blindsided when athletic... Read more

Sunday, March 6, 2011, 1:00 PM
Here at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall Sunday afternoon, five area wrestlers are shooting for state titles. I'm guessing that three will walk away with hardware. Eastern senior Rob Deutsch (41-0) has diominated the 119-pound weight class all season and there is no reason to think that he won't upend... Read more
