The Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team, understandably, is trying to move past the recent resignation of head coach John Gallagher and concentrate on achieving its postseason goals. "We're just focused on basketball and playing for each other," senior Aubree Brown said after the Vikings bested Archbishop Ryan, 39-34, in a Catholic League playoff semifinal Thursday night at Philadelphia University. Gallagher resigned early last week over allegations that he sent anonymous e-mails to college coaches in hopes of jeopardizing the NCAA eligibility of three Nigerian players at Catholic League rival Neumann-Goretti.

AND TO THINK, the first time John Mosco saw Luke Connaghan, the soon-to-be Archbishop Wood basketball coach had no idea he was watching his future forward. It was the summer of Connaghan's sophomore season and Mosco was still an assistant at Ss. Neumann-Goretti. The Saints and Vikings met in a summer league championship game at the Mayfair Recreation Center. Connaghan, now a senior, for the Vikings, evidently made quite an impression. "I didn't know who he was," Mosco said.

Joe Krantz had just announced his retirement after 36 years on the sideline for the Archbishop Wood boys' soccer team when the job offers started coming in. One from an old friend at a college and another from a former player. Would you be interested? Do you want to help out? Both men probably knew that Krantz's answer would be "no thanks.
