Doug Costin grabbed the tail of the Germantown Academy quarterback's jersey, spun him, and drove him to the turf. Bishop Shanahan's star defensive lineman flexed his arms and stomped his feet as the clock expired on the visiting Eagles' 14-6, season-opening win. Costin seemed to be involved in every play Saturday afternoon, making it fitting that his sack came on the final one of the nonleague game. "It felt great getting that tackle," he said. "I've always dreamed about it. But I can't think of it as myself.

Bishop Shanahan is off to its best volleyball start ever. On Friday, the Eagles defeated the visiting Kennett Blue Demons to go 4-0 in Southern Chester County League play and remain tied with Unionville for the league lead. Kennett dropped to 2-2.

In the second game, Kennett steadied on the service line and came back to take a 15-12 win over the Eagles. In the deciding game, Shanahan started tentatively and fell behind by 6-1.

Last year, the Bishop Shanahan soccer team did not win a single game. None. Zero. Zip. It had a few ties, and even broke into the W column once - but that was by forfeit. What a difference a little experience can make. This year, the Eagles have essentially the same personnel as last year's squad, but they have become the most improved team in the area. After Monday's 1-1 tie with Kennett (4-1-2), the Eagles were holding fourth place in the Southern Chester County League with a 4-3-1 record.

Today's baseball game at Hoopes Park between Kennett and host Bishop Shanahan really doesn't mean anything in the Southern Chester County League. Shanahan wrapped up the title the week before with a win at Oxford, and at 9-2 in the circuit, the Eagles have an insurmountable two-game lead over second-place Unionville (7-5). Even with a win, Kennett (6-5) can only tie the Indians for second place. Both Shanahan and Kennett are in the PIAA District 1 Class AA playoffs. Shanahan, the defending champion, is the top seed with an 11-7 overall record.

There was a point last week when Bishop Shanahan's field hockey team appeared to hit rock bottom, with little light in sight for the rest of the season. Going into last week, Shanahan was a team without a win at 0-8. In a game the previous week, the Eagles had lost key striker Moiya Thompson, who went down with strained knee ligaments. Five minutes into their match with Coatesville on Tuesday, the Eagles reached a new nadir when starting forward Maureen Dalton sprained her ankle and appeared lost for the season.

Bishop Shanahan's first-year swimming coach, Troy Bowers, believed that his boys' team had a good shot at finishing around the .500 level when the season began. But when the Eagles, who were winless last season, lost their first three matches, he was concerned that his swimmers might become discouraged. He needn't have worried. The Eagles split a pair of Tri-County League meets last week, bowing Tuesday to West Chester East, 112-69, but rebounding Friday to score a 92-83 win over Harriton.

The first chapter of the Bishop Shanahan boys cross-country team's success story this season was written two years ago at the Southern Chester County League championship meet. Garnet Valley went into the meet undefeated in league competition and the overwhelming favorite to clinch the league title with another victory, which it eventually got. Shanahan went in as almost an afterthought with a .500 record. But the Eagles shocked everyone - including themselves - and finished second, just two points behind Garnet Valley.

It is a rite of spring as predictable as April showers. The Bishop Shanahan baseball team, under coach George Hadfield, starts out slowly, then begins to roar as the weather warms up. It has happened again this season. The Eagles started 1-7 and lost two of their first three Southern Chester County League games. They seemed buried. Since then, Shanahan has won nine straight games. The Eagles posted their biggest win of the season on Monday, knocking off league-leading Avon Grove, 2-1. Shanahan (10-7 overall, 10-2 league)

While the idea of playing football had crossed Chris Panichelli's mind before, the lacrosse standout did not embrace it until watching Bishop Shanahan play West Chester Henderson, his old school, on Oct. 1. "While I was sitting and watching the game with friends, I thought to myself, 'I have four more years to play lacrosse, but this could be my last chance to play football,' " he said. A few days later, Panichelli approached Shanahan coach Paul Meyers during lunch period about joining the squad.

There was a time when Alyssa Manley may have tentatively approached a loose ball, because she might have made a mistake after scooping it in her stick. The sophomore attacker might be a bonafide offensive weapon for Bishop Shanahan now, but freshman fears held her back at times last season. "Playing against people that are older than you is intimidating," Manley said. "But you just have to get it in your head that they're no better than you. We're all literally playing against people our own age. You just have to get that in your head, and once I did, I just stepped up. I think that's what was making me nervous and intimidating me. " However, not even the final seconds of a rain-soaked, cuticle-chewer against visiting Strath Haven could scare her. The sophomore gave Shanahan a 10-9 nonleague victory Saturday afternoon with a dramatic, game-winning goal with just 11.8 seconds left in regulation.

Whenever Devon Adams steps onto the basketball court, she thinks she should dominate. It is that simple. At 6-foot-3, the freshman center for Bishop Shanahan is not being cocky. It is just what she expects from herself. "I just really feel like every time I go out there I have to dominate," Adams said after Shanahan's 42-34 win at Downingtown West. "It doesn't matter how old I am. " In just her 11th varsity basketball game, Adams is a matchup problem for virtually any team.

Nasir Adderley developed his skills while growing up in Mount Airy and playing Pop Warner football for the Enon Eagles. Now, the Philly native, who moved to Chester County before eighth grade, is a key performer for a Great Valley squad that is enjoying a breakout season. A do-everything type with blazing speed, Adderley serves the Patriots as a receiver, rusher, Wildcat-formation quarterback, strong safety, and kick returner. "The thing that makes him so special is that you never know what's going to happen when he touches the ball," said Great Valley's first-year coach, Dan Ellis.

Each season, Bishop Shanahan, as a Class AAA football program, faces a largely uphill battle while competing against six AAAA members in the Ches-Mont League National Conference. "You know every single game is going to be tough," senior tight end and middle linebacker Cody Smith said. "Even though we're usually the underdog, it's important that we have confidence and believe in ourselves. That's the only way to approach it. " In Week 8, Smith and the undersized Eagles defied the odds with a 17-10 upset of visiting Downingtown East at Jack Mancini Field.

The referee blew his whistle and turned toward the scorer's table. A sideline device detected a lightning strike near West Chester Henderson's stadium. The scorer sounded an air horn. The District 1 boys' lacrosse final between Avon Grove and Bishop Shanahan would be delayed for 52 minutes. The fans in West Chester Henderson's stadium were told to take cover in their cars. Avon Grove, which went on to a 9-3 win Thursday, waited out the storm in a locker room under the bleachers. Ryan Cook stretched.

Avon Grove broke its huddle with a little less than a minute left in the first half of Tuesday night's District 1 boys' lacrosse semifinal against Springfield (Delco). Red Devils coach Eric Jackson had told his players that they needed a goal before halftime of their 8-5 win at West Chester Henderson. A two-goal advantage, he said, would give them needed momentum. The quick offensive set failed to create a clear chance. Senior attackman Tanner Peck charged from the right side, but did not have an angle to shoot on. Springfield's righthanded goalie, James Spence, was hugging the post.

Both Bishop Shanahan and West Chester Henderson were coming off lopsided losses entering Saturday's Ches-Mont League National Division game. Hungry for a win, Henderson senior Garrett Girafalco rushed for three touchdowns to help the Warriors cruise to a 42-14 road victory. Shanahan was missing six starters because of injuries, including sophomore lineman Doug Costin, who was leading the team in tackles. Eagles coach Paul Meyers said his team's lack of depth up front made executing the game plan difficult.

Pitcher Kate Poppe survived a pressure-packed seventh inning Monday to get Bishop Shanahan's softball team into the PIAA state finals with a 5-4 thriller over Canon-McMillan in the Class AAAA semifinals at Carlisle. After giving up a run that cut the Eagles' lead to 5-4, Poppe faced a situation with runners on first and second base with one out. After a groundout, Olivia Lorusso lined two hard foul balls down the third-base line before Poppe struck her out. "It took a lot of guts for her to get that last batter," Shanahan coach Ron Savastio said.
