The boys and girls basketball teams advance to the Group 3 semifinals.
All season the Timber Creek Regional High School boys basketball team believed it could be a serious contender once it was whole. As it turns out, the Chargers were right. George Sapp scored 23 points and Sameen Swint added 18 to lead No. 4 Timber Creek to a 60-44 win over No. 5 Delsea Thursday night. The result was never in doubt as the Chargers raced out to a 21-6 lead in front of their home crowd. Sapp made sure any comeback attempt by Delsea would come up short, by scoring 13 of the Chargers’ 17 fourth-quarter points. Jeffery Lewis added seven points for Timber Creek, which will face No. 1 Hammonton on Friday. The Timber Creek girls basketball team also advanced to the Group 3 semifinals, and did so in dramatic fashion. The No. 6 …

Dominique Reid has the Timber Creek boys basketball team on a roll.
For two months Timber Creek Regional High School boys basketball player Dominique Reid sat and watched as the Chargers struggled to gain any traction in a difficult Olympic Conference. The 6-foot-8 forward/center knew he could change that if he was on the court with his teammates, but an offseason knee surgery didn’t allow that to be possible. So he waited and waited. “It was difficult,” Reid said. “There were many nights staying up and a lot of rehab. There was a lot of working out, but in the end, it feels great to be back.” Reid returned less than two weeks ago, but his official arrival was stamped Tuesday night as he dominated both ends of the court in Timber Creek’s 60-35 win over Black Horse Pike Regional School District rival …

Brandon Keller is a four-time District 30 Wrestling Tournament champion.
Brandon Keller has had the same vision ever since he emerged as a standout wrestler his freshman year at Timber Creek Regional High School. He sees himself as standing on the top of the podium in Atlantic City, crowned as a state champion. “You have to (have that vision). If you are not picturing yourself on the top of that podium, then you are not going to be on the top of the podium,” Keller said. “As a freshman, I pictured myself at the top when I placed and every year I have done that. It doesn’t matter who is in front of you, if you step on the line and wrestle your match, you can beat anyone.” Keller took the first step toward achieving that goal Saturday, claiming his fourth District 30 Wrestling Tournament championship. Keller …

Highland's Tom Nolan is one of 25 local athletes who advanced to the semifinals.
Tom Nolan only competed in six matches this season, and even though he won five of them, little was known about the Highland Regional High School junior. That changed on Friday. Nolan, a No. 7 seed, recorded the biggest upset of the NJSIAA District 30 Wrestling Tournament, defeating No. 2 Emanuel Mitchell, of Winslow, 5-1. Nolan’s victory shook up the 170-pound bracket. He will take on Timber Creek’s Keith Bauberger in the semifinals with the winner advancing to the district final. While Nolan’s victory was one of the biggest storylines of the night, he was far from the only local athlete to make a statement. Highland, Timber Creek and Triton combined to advance 25 wrestlers into today’s semifinal round. The Tartan’s led the way with 11 …
