Thursday, May 26, 2011, 11:56 AM
The highest area seed in South Non-Public A is Camden Catholic, at No. 4. But it isn't likely that the Irish or No. 5 Bishop Eustace or No. 8 Paul VI will get to the final. 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: Williamstown shocks Shawnee

Monday, May 23, 2011, 8:00 PM
Seems funny to say about a guy who allowed eight runs and four homers, but Williamstown's Derrick Capiak pitched a good game on Monday. Capiak went the distance as Williamstown surprised Shawnee, 11-8, in the first round of the SJ Group 4 tourney. The Braves (10-11), the No. 12 seed, got homers from... Read more
