Simon Gagne skated for 45 minutes yesterday and reported no dizziness, vision problems or other concussion symptoms. The Flyers left winger said he felt "pretty good. " "I'm pretty happy the way I've felt the past two days," said Gagne, who had failed two baseline exams since being hit in the jaw Oct. 24 in Florida by the Panthers' Jay Bouwmeester. Yesterday, he passed the baseline test, which shows whether a player's reflexes are impaired as a result of a concussion. Gagne was cleared for full activity and will practice with the team today.

Fourth-seeded Kris Sell of Medford, N.J., won the Middle States Girls' 16- and-under Tennis Championship by defeating second-seeded Ivy Wang of Haverford High School, 6-4, 7-6 (9-7), yesterday at the Merion Cricket Club. After winning the first set with a placement shot down the line, Sell went on to 2-0 in the second set. Wang then outsteadied Sell in baseline exchanges and won four games to lead 4-2. Wang then became erratic, and Sell took a 5-4 lead. But Sell could not win the match, and the struggle continued to 6-all.

In an overtime thriller that was played with championship intensity, Haddonfield High advanced to the final of the Cherry Hill East Holiday Tournament by the slightest of margins - one foot. Haddonfield scored a 62-58 win over hard-luck Middle Township in last night's first semifinal before a crowd of 1,000. The Bulldogs, who are 4-0 and No. 2 in The Inquirer's South Jersey ratings, will face Bishop Eustace for the second year in a row in tomorrow's 7:30 p.m. final. Eustace defeated Cherry Hill East, 54-49, in last night's other semifinal.

The word before Mainland's game at Holy Spirit last night was that the Mustangs' 6-foot-7 center, Rob Higbee, would be playing at less than 100 percent. But Higbee at less than 100 percent is like most other players at 110 percent, according to his coach. Higbee scored 17 points and pulled down 21 rebounds to lead Mainland Regional to a tense 44-43 win over the Spartans in a Cape-Atlantic American Division game. "He plays as hard as any player I've ever seen," Mustangs coach Sam Botta said.

What's so great about high school basketball? Maybe it's tournaments, such as the Bishop Shanahan Holiday Tournament, where two games in one day go into overtime. Maybe it's teams that match each other three-pointer for three-pointer, layup for layup, and steal for steal. Maybe it's the thrill of a last-minute game-winner. But most likely it's Luna Foster, holding one child in her arms and shouting about her pride for another child for all the world to hear. Foster, mother of West Chester Henderson senior John Foster, was standing just a few feet behind her son when, with 8 1/2 seconds left in overtime, he hit the baseline jumper that gave the Warriors a 52-51 win over host Bishop Shanahan.

The Firebirds of Holy Ghost Prep have claimed 11 consecutive victims this season. But the latest of the vanquished presented no match at all, as the Jenkintown Drakes got walloped Tuesday, 64-22. The first Bicentennial League match of the year will not go down as a memorable one for the Jenkintown faithful, as the Drakes were out of the game from the opening minutes. Holy Ghost's man-to-man defense forced the Drakes into numerous turnovers, while the Firebirds ran from baseline to baseline with precision.

With a game-high 28 points, Lower Moreland senior Gregg Wallace starred as the Lions ousted the Pottsgrove Falcons, 79-70, from the District 1 Class AAA tournament Saturday night at Pennridge. "That is the type of player Gregg has been," Lower Moreland coach Russ Mitchell said. "This isn't the first game that Gregg has played like this, and when his teammates get him the ball, he can be super. " Wallace was at his best at the beginning of the fourth period, after a basket from Cliff Sharpe (21 points)

It was nearly a half-hour after the final buzzer had sounded and John Morton couldn't believe that the NCAA national championship basketball game was over. His mind wouldn't let him believe that there wasn't time for one more three-pointer from the general vicinity of Puget Sound. But time had finally run out and Morton's Seton Hall team had fallen one point short, 80-79, to Michigan in overtime of the NCAA final at the Kingdome last night. Morton, a 6-3 senior from the Bronx who entered a program that was a Big East doormat and exited one of the premier programs in the country, almost single-handedly would not let last night's game end. He finished with 35 points, 25 in the second half and 17 of his team's last 20 in regulation.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - There were circumstances that would have sunk most teams with La Salle sprinting early, crawling late but doing enough to live another day. The 13th-seeded Explorers continued their postseason run with Friday's 63-61 win over No. 4 Kansas State before 18,301 partisan Wildcats fans at the Sprint Center. La Salle (23-9) meets SEC tournament champion and 12th-seeded Mississippi in Sunday's third-round game. After a first half in which La Salle led by as many as 19 points and held an 18-point advantage at intermission, the Explorers held on for dear life by surviving both the Wildcats and their boisterous purple-clad fans.

SOUTH AMBOY, N.J. - In the distance loomed the huge metal tanks storing oil and gasoline near the water's edge. But right on the shoreline of the Raritan Bay, amid the deep-green sea lettuce washing up in the waves, there were bait fish, clams, mussels, and shrimp, with shorebirds swooping down low in search of a meal. The Raritan and Delaware Bays are home to heavy petrochemical operations, with the potential for great environmental damage in the event of a spill. Because of that, a group of volunteers is fanning out along the coast of some of the state's industrialized waterways to document the fish, plants, and animals there now. The data being collected by the American Littoral Society of Sandy Hook will help form a starting point to compare with the aftermath of a spill.

PARIS - If love means never having to say you're sorry, what about 6-love? Depends which side of the French Open scoreboard you're on, apparently. Maria Sharapova feels not a shred of remorse about the way she's been finishing off opponents quickly - a total of five games lost through three matches at Roland Garros this year, including a 6-0, 6-0 win in the first round. The 27th-seeded Mikhail Youzhny of Russia, however, was on the wrong end of a shutout set Saturday and decided he needed to apologize right then and there to the ticket-buyers in the seats at Court Suzanne Langlen.

The four-peat was truly earned. Neumann-Goretti survived a big-time tussle with St. Joseph's Prep on Monday night at the Palestra, turning back the Hawks, 59-57, in overtime and again leaving with the Catholic League's championship hardware. "That's basketball," Neumann-Goretti coach Carl Arrigale said. "That's a good team we beat. We're not invincible. But we made enough plays to come out on top. " It was the program's fourth consecutive title and eighth in the last 12 seasons.

NOT TOO MANY years ago, she might have mistaken a basketball for a pumpkin. Now, Jamal Nwaniemeka says his mother, Erika, "is like my second coach. " You know how Conwell-Egan High is in Fairless Hills/Levittown and Saint Joseph's University is in the Wynnefield section of West Philly? Well, Nwaniemeka attends the first and lives moments from the second and his mother, who works near C-E, is his chauffeur. That leaves lots of times for hoop talk. "When I started playing, my mom didn't know a thing about basketball," said Nwaniemeka, a 6-2, 180-pound senior wing guard.

PHOENIX - Carmen Miranda was vacuuming her car and talking on her cellphone when a man, dubbed the "Baseline Killer," shot her in the head, shoved her body in the back seat and lodged her legs over her head with her pants pulled down. The Phoenix woman was the last victim in a string of nine other killings in 2005 and 2006 in which victims were attacked while going about daily activities such as leaving work, waiting at a bus stop or washing a car. They were shot in the head, and many of the bodies were left with their pants pulled down.

You might say that Wissahickon's sophomore twins, Katlin and Anne Arbogast, were destined to be softball players. Their father, Ron, who installed a hitting machine in the family's Lower Gwynedd Township backyard, played baseball and softball. Sisters Suzanne and Maggie were standout pitchers at the Shipley School and went on to play at Penn and Connecticut, respectively. "We were always around softball, from the time we were born," said 16-year-old Katlin, a key to the Trojans' emergence as a contender in the Suburban One League's Freedom Division last season.
