Before Monsignor Bonner and Cardinal O'Hara took the floor for their final league game Sunday, both teams knew that winning was a must for playoff position and survival. When it was over, Bonner had clinched first place in the Catholic League Southern Division and knocked O'Hara out of playoff contention with a 67-47 victory. Bonner got some help in the standings from Roman Catholic, which defeated West Catholic, 73-69, Sunday. West had been tied for first place with Bonner going into Sunday's action.

It was a funny scene. Although Monsignor Bonner had decided on a new basketball coach Tuesday, athletic director Dick Bernhart refused to tell the school's basketball players. "We knew but we didn't know," said Mike Ferry, an incoming Bonner senior. Bernhart did not want to say because the school's new coach, Kevin McCormick, was coaching a Springfield team against a squad of Bonner players that night in a Media Basketball League playoff game. But Ferry works in the school's office and overheard a conversation that concluded with a "so long, Kevin.

For Monsignor Bonner's golf team, March 23 was supposed to be the date of just another match. But this one was different. The Friars were facing St. Hubert - a girls' school - for the first time. Naturally, there was some trepidation. The Friars were kidded by a teacher over the loudspeaker during the morning announcements that they "better not lose today. " Bonner, which has a new coach, Ed Moody, soundly defeated St. Hubert, 195-284, playing seven holes instead of the usual nine because of darkness.

Some runners might be offended. Others might be downright mad. But Kevin Hager is actually happy that he's not in the limelight every day. The Monsignor Bonner junior is a quiet, almost shy athlete. He has been one of the strongest runners for an outstanding Friars team, but he doesn't get as much attention as his teammate, Kevin McGinnis. Hager is used to that. He was on a St. James team in his freshman and sophomore years that was one of the best in the area. With teammates such as Jermaine Battle, LaMar Campbell, Dave Thomas, Harvey Johnson, Mel Raymond and McGinnis at St. James, Hager usually took a back seat to his high-profile teammates.

The Monsignor Bonner High School crew nosed out Atlantic City High and La Salle High's A team in a thrilling varsity eight-oared race yesterday on the Schuylkill in the first of the Many Flick series of regattas under the auspices of the Philadelphia Scholastic Rowing Association. The three shells crossed the finish line separated only by a few feet. The Bonner eight, coached by Dave Krympotich, led all the way on the 1,500-meter rippled water against a head wind, though never ahead by much.

The Monsignor Bonner boys' varsity eight returned to power yesterday and won the city high school championship of the Philadelphia Scholastic Rowing Association for the first time since 1974 in a thrilling five-cornered race on the Schuylkill. After winning the first three races of the Flick-Horvat schoolboy series, Bonner - coached by 1988 Olympian Dave Krmpotich - was outclassed in succeeding races by La Salle High and St. Joseph's Prep. But not yesterday. Bonner outsprinted St. Joseph's to the finish line and won by one second - about a deck length.

If Monsignor Bonner baseball coach Joe DeBarberie had a sense of déjà vu during Thursday's District 12 Class AAAA championship game against Central, it was understandable. As they did in the Catholic League title game, the Friars (20-4) stumbled out of the gate, falling behind, 3-0, in the first inning. But they rallied behind the steady pitching of Joe Nestor and timely hitting of Alex Liberatore, Matt Ruggieri and Rick Reigner to post an 11-4 victory over the Lancers at La Salle High's Ward Field.

When Monsignor Bonner captured a 4-1 victory over Downingtown Tuesday night at the Skatium to advance to the Flyers Cup finals, there was no jubilation. And there was no swarming of Friars goaltender Jim Bauer, who was superb in stopping 19 shots and breathing life into his team with some high-quality saves early in the game. Instead, with 18 seconds left, Bauer left his crease to partake in a brawl at mid-ice that ensued with Downingtown feeling the weight of its fourth and most heart-wrenching loss of the season to the Friars.

At the season's outset, probably no one would have figured it to be this way. For Monsignor Bonner's ice hockey team, after having lost 17 players because of graduation, a mere .500 record this year would have been deemed respectable and probably would have earned coach Ted Dolan a few pats on the back. Instead, the Friars have turned their 1989-90 campaign into a dream season. Last week, Dolan's squad of too few veterans and too many rookies shocked Malvern Prep, 1-0, Tuesday in the Flyers Cup Championship at the Skatium.

Before Monsignor Bonner met the Haverford School in the second round of the Eastern High School Hockey League playoffs, head coach Ted Dolan said that he felt his team was about to reach its peak. Dolan was not mistaken. The Friars bounced the Fords in two straight games at the Skatium to capture the best-of-three set and advance to the EHSHL finals against Malvern Prep. In the opening game of the best-of-three series against Malvern on Friday night, Bonner lost, 4-0, as the EHSHL's first-place team received a shutout from freshman goalie Jason Myrtetus.

Collin and Christian DiGalbo are tight, inseparable, the best of friends. In fact, the fraternal twins were born just five minutes apart. Collin is a 6-foot-1, 210-pound right-handed pitcher for Bonner-Prendergast. Christian, the oldest, is the team's 6-3, 270-pound first baseman. The pair is so close they even played quarterback and center, respectively, during the Friars' football season. Get the ultra-intense brothers playing backyard wiffle ball, however, and things will get competitive.

Shannon May wasn't going to let her eyes off Alyssa Monaghan. The task was simple, at least in theory, for the Archbishop Wood sophomore: shadow the Bonner-Prendergast senior guard. As soon as a Bonner-Prendergast player got a defensive rebound, there May was, glued to the Catholic League's most valuable player, her eyes transfixed on the St. Joseph's recruit. May was so focused on Monaghan's off-the-ball movements that, at one point, neither player realized when a loose ball bounced in her direction.

Through six quarters, Alyssa Monaghan refused to take a single break Wednesday. She knew there was too much on the line. Not only was the senior guard in the midst of propelling Bonner-Prendergast to a 59-53 double-overtime win over West York in the second round of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs, but she also knew she was within striking distance of a milestone. Monaghan's 32 points made good on both counts, and was enough to send the Pandas to a quarterfinal matchup against league-rival Archbishop Wood on Saturday at a site and time to be determined.

Mary Anne Young put it bluntly. "I hadn't made a basket in a while," the senior said. Her tone was self-depreciating, but it also conveyed disbelief. The Bonner-Prendergast guard had played in three straight games before Saturday without scoring. And she hadn't reached double digits since early January. Against Gwynedd Mercy on Saturday in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA state tournament, Young made up for her recent offensive anemia. Young knocked down three three-pointers en route to 11 points, and Bonner-Prendergast beat Gwynedd Mercy, 48-39, for the program's first win in the state playoffs.

For the first seven games of the season, Alyssa Monaghan sat on the bench for the Bonner-Prendergast girls' basketball team. Her maroon warm-up shirt never came off. Out with a torn ligament - and another that was partially torn - in her right ankle, the first few weeks of the season were frustrating for the sharpshooting guard headed to St. Joseph's. Two days after Monaghan returned to the floor, 6-foot-2 La Salle University recruit Shalina Miller was sidelined with an infection.
