The 13-year-old from South Philadelphia has also showed off her flashy basketball sneaker collection. She said her classmates at Springside-Chestnut Hill Academy tell her she gets new sneakers every two weeks.

Springfield's Suzy Yaramishyn and Bishop McDevitt's Courtney Knapp may be best known as basketball players, but this spring they are masquerading as catchers, and their softball teams have few complaints about the juniors wearing the catcher's mask. "Suzy came to me during the off-season and asked me if she could come out, and she did," Springfield coach Ed Jones said. "She's a terrific athlete. I said, 'Suzy, really the only spot that I have open is catcher. That's where I need help.

Council Rock South standout Alex Wheatley hopes that track and AAU basketball will take her mind off the Golden Hawks' 50-49 overtime loss to Downingtown West Friday night in the contest for the ninth and final berth from District 1 in the PIAA Class AAAA playoffs. "Track starts Monday, and AAU basketball begins next Saturday," said Wheatley, still playing the loss at Wissahickon over and over in her mind. "That was a huge low in an otherwise awesome season. " South led by 40-35 with a little more than a minute to play in regulation, but the Whippets fought back to tie it and force overtime.

THESE THREE letters seem to have NBA coaches cringing. Is the way of AAU youth basketball part of the reason why professional talent seems a bit thin right now? Could the AAU game be doing more harm than good in the development of players? More and more, when coaches and NBA executives talk about the lack of fundamentals in players entering the college and pro ranks, the first three letters they usually utter are AAU. This is not a dig against AAU. It really is the true major highway to travel in order to get noticed during high school and thus land a college scholarship.

Every year in late February, Sterling point guard Tyra Satchell gets a little nervous. Even though it happens to coincide with the start of the New Jersey state girls' basketball postseason, which Sterling will enter Monday, her anxiety has nothing to do with the hardwood. It actually has to do with her birthday. Unlike most seniors who turn 18 before graduating, Satchell will turn 17 on Thursday, meaning that a whole new crop of friends and teammates will learn that she is a grade ahead.

Holy Ghost Prep's Jack Kalmes has received recruiting interest from several Division III basketball programs, including Catholic University, Gettysburg, and Ursinus. A possible bonus for one of those suitors, in case it's ever needed in a pinch, is his ability and willingness to be a fill-in goalkeeper in soccer. "Last year's team needed a backup, so I offered to do it," Kalmes said. "I mostly got garbage time, but I still enjoyed it. I was able to get an appreciation for the high skill level of our guys.

  Spotlight on: Holy Cross junior Alliya Butts For the Holy Cross girls' basketball team, Alliya Butts is a feisty, ball-hawking defender, a coach on the floor, and the best outside shooter and ballhandler. At 5-foot-4, she rebounds over girls who tower over her. She can drive to the basket, pull up for a jumper, or shoot a three-pointer as well as any player in the area - and she does it all with a high-energy style that doesn't ever seem to slow down. The junior point guard is averaging 29.5 points for the 2-0 Lancers.
