YOU CAN call it the "Derrick Jones effect. " No, not just the audible astonishment the 6-6 senior's aerial displays elicit from the Archbishop Carroll faithful. Apparently, Jones' exploits also change the energy of his teammates. "It definitely gives us a spark every time he gets a dunk," said Patriots guard Samir Taylor. "I feel like that helps us change the game around. " Last night at Widener University, Jones and Co. jumped on Haverford School, 69-49, in front of a near-capacity crowd at the Pete and Jameer Nelson Holiday Classic.

Archbishop Carroll, seeking its third PIAA Class AAA quarterfinal berth in four seasons, set the tone early Tuesday night against Octorara. The Patriots pounded the offensive glass, carried over a hot shooting touch from last Friday, and built a 17-point advantage in the first seven minutes against the bewildered Braves. From there, Carroll, also playing stellar defense, put the finishing touches on a 71-50, second-round romp at Coatesville High and moved a step closer to its second state title.

The two teams that stepped on the Norristown High School hardwood Tuesday night had reached a level of play that no other girls' team in the region could reach. Spring-Ford and Archbishop Carroll, The Inquirer's No. 1 and No. 2 teams in Southeastern Pennsylvania, respectively, had combined to win 57 of their 61 games this season before facing off in the PIAA Class AAAA semifinals. Neither had experienced a loss in months. But only one team had experienced the highs and lows of the state tournament.

Some coaches may have been a little hesitant, getting handed the reins of one of the more successful high school baseball programs in the state. Archbishop Carroll's baseball team had won three Catholic League championships this decade, and with the talent back this spring, many predicted a fourth crown. But Fran Murphy eagerly took the job. And to his credit, the Patriots didn't miss a beat this spring, rolling to the Southern Division championship before winning their third league championship in three years.

Linus McGinty must give up smoking. Cheeseburgers, too, and any other food that tends to clog the arteries. But there is one thing the Archbishop Carroll girls' basketball coach does not want to give up after recent quadruple-bypass surgery: his passion, coaching. "I really miss it," McGinty said. "I'm just not physically capable of doing it now. " McGinty, 46, never had been seriously ill. So he wasn't overly concerned when he felt discomfort a few days before Christmas.

Ryan Daly is a complete offensive player now, but that wasn't always the case. The 6-foot-5 forward for Archbishop Carroll employed his vast arsenal of abilities Friday night in the Patriots' 69-57 triumph against visiting Father Judge. Daly, a senior who will play at Hartford next season, finished with a game-high 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting. He also added nine rebounds and two steals and hit 3 of 5 three-pointers for Carroll (14-1, 6-0 Catholic League). After struggling to find his shot early last season, Daly focused on becoming a more complete offensive threat.

Archbishop Carroll senior Maura McBryan committed Monday to play college basketball next year at St. Joseph's University. McBryan, a 6-foot guard, averaged roughly 11 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists per game last season for the Patriots, who finished 18-8. The Hawks went 15-13 last season. She made her official visit to St. Joseph's last weekend. McBryan also strongly considered Penn. "I liked both schools," she said. "It was nothing against Penn. I just really liked the atmosphere, the team, and the coaches at St. Joe's.

While Josh Sharkey handled the Archbishop Carroll offense, Miks Antoms anchored its defense, which gave up 98 points last week. The 6-foot-7 senior from Latvia blocked four shots as the Patriots overwhelmed visiting La Salle, 66-52, in the lone Catholic League contest Tuesday night. Last week, Neumann-Goretti skewered Carroll's defense for nearly 100 points. In the fourth quarter Tuesday, however, Antoms' defense started a sequence that illustrated vast improvement. "Play of the game," Carroll coach Paul Romanczuk said.

Emotions ran high, as usual, in the latest chapter of the Catholic League boys' hoops rivalry between Archbishop Carroll and Neumann-Goretti. There was a brief skirmish between players in the late going, with a Carroll player receiving a technical foul; a Carroll assistant exchanged angry words with Neumann-Goretti spectators, one of whom was ejected from the gym; and the bad blood that developed between the N-G cheerleaders and members of Carroll's...

Dan Connor, a former star linebacker at Strath Haven and Penn State, was named football coach at Archbishop Carroll on Thursday. "I met with the players around noon," said the 30-year-old from Broomall. "It went well. They all came up afterward to shake my hand. It was encouraging. " Connor, who played six years in the NFL, was a linebackers coach at West Chester University for the last two seasons. "I'm happy for Carroll, but sad for us," said West Chester coach Bill Zwaan, who quarterbacked Carroll to the city championship in 1971.

Archbishop Carroll's basketball team will likely go as far as Josh Sharkey will take it this season. But that doesn't necessarily mean scoring. Tuesday night, the 5-foot-10 senior point guard helped deliver an exquisite brand of team basketball in the Patriots' 79-56 win against visiting Bonner-Prendergast. "We're all locked in," Sharkey said. "This year is probably one of the best teams we've had, chemistry-wise. We're all locked in, we're hungry and we want to win, so we do the little things to help each other.

Louis DiCesari's 13-year-old granddaughter was so excited about attending Archbishop Carroll High School next year that he agreed to help with the $7,300 tuition and $1,845 school fee. But he found out a few weeks ago that tuition for incoming freshmen was skyrocketing at the Main Line school, increasing $2,200. That brings next year's total to $11,345, with the school fee - an increase of nearly 25 percent - thousands more than any other school in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's system is charging currently.

The rain came in sheets, and the turf squished with each hurried step. These were not ideal conditions for a Conestoga field hockey team that thrives when its passes leave one stick and find another. But the rain was helpless against pinpoint distribution Tuesday, and Conestoga knocked off Cardinal O'Hara, 3-2, in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA field hockey playoffs at the Germantown Super Site. "Our passing was amazing," junior Meredith Ross said. "We really played as a team.

The sun began to set behind her, and Marie Murphy was content. Her Cardinal O'Hara field hockey team knocked off Catholic League rival Archbishop Carroll, 3-1, Wednesday, in the first meeting between the two teams since late October of last year. That's when Carroll defeated O'Hara in the Catholic League championship game. The two squads have traded the championship crown in the last two years, building one of the strongest rivalries in the area. Both entered Wednesday 8-0 in Catholic League play, and it was O'Hara that dominated play for most of the game and emerged largely unscathed.

WITHIN FIVE HOURS on the road, something wasn't right. The light-blue Oldsmobile Cutlass with the rusted holes through the wheel wells couldn't make it around a city block, let alone reach California, yet Brad Ingelsby and his cousin Bryan Paterson thought they could get one last ride out of the decrepit heap. It didn't take long for the car to begin huffing, puffing and lurching. Ohio was the first of many breakdowns by the side of the road. Another came in Joplin, Mo., tornado country, where Bonnie and Clyde once robbed banks.
