Two years removed from winning a PIAA Class AAA girls' basketball championship, Archbishop Carroll will try to add a Class AAAA title to its collection when it faces Mount Lebanon at 6 p.m. Friday at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center. The Patriots, who moved up to Class AAAA this season, earned their way into the championship game by rolling to a 65-41 victory over Boyertown on Tuesday night at Spring-Ford. Carroll (23-5) picked up its 18th win in its last 19 games as junior Rachel Pearson, missing for more than two months of the season because of a stress problem in her left ankle, scored 13 points.

A young, underrated Boyertown team almost shocked powerful Brooklawn last night in the second round of the American Legion Mid-Atlantic Regional at Bear Stadium. But the New Jersey state champion, favored to win this event by virtue of its 48-1 record coming in, played like a champion in crunch time, taking advantage of a Boyertown (38-16) mistake to score five unearned runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game before winning it, 9-8, on Matt Furman's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th.

Boyertown's A.J. Bogucki, a hard-throwing senior righthander and North Carolina commit, was picked by the Minnesota Twins in the 31st round (No. 920 overall) of Major League Baseball's first-year player draft.

Before dominating on the mat as a 220-pound sophomore at Boyertown, Jordan Wood was a young kid stuck in a sport he did not like. "I was always bigger for my age," Wood said. "In second and third grade, I was always wrestling sixth and seventh graders who were a lot stronger, and they beat me up pretty good. I didn't like that too much. "I thought about quitting for the first two or three years, but I stuck with it, and now I love it. " Now beating up on some of District 1's finest at 220 pounds, Wood has found his niche as Boyertown's sophomore captain.

Downingtown came close to being eliminated from contention for the Ches- Mont crown Saturday, but took advantage of Great Valley mistakes to score 4 runs in the bottom of the seventh inning for a 7-6 win. Downingtown is now 8-2 in the league and meets Boyertown, the league leader at 9-1, on Wednesday. The Whippets play at West Chester Henderson this afternoon. "At least our destiny is in our own hands," said Whippets coach Mike Morgan. "We don't have to worry about anybody else winning to help us. " Should Downingtown win both games, and Boyertown beat Owen J. Roberts this afternoon, it would force a playoff for the league title.

HERSHEY, Pa. - In his first two trips, Jordan Wood cried at the Giant Center. He tagged along with his teammates for dinner at Applebee's to celebrate their final weigh-in, but he came home starving for the state championship he had been dreaming about since he was five years old. On Saturday at the PIAA Wrestling Championships, Wood was five seconds away from the 220-pound state title that had evaded him the last two years. He started to look for his family in the stands, and he smiled.

HERSHEY, Pa. - An exhausted Derek Gulotta stretched out on a gray floor in the Giant Center. He ripped tape off of his left elbow as he tried to catch his breath. After his quarterfinal win at the PIAA wrestling championships Friday afternoon, the Owen J. Roberts senior limped to his feet. Gulotta conceded he isn't as healthy as he'd like to be headed into the biggest match of his career Saturday. The 132-pounder hyperextended his elbow and sprained his ankle more than a month ago. He hasn't been fully able since.

Boyertown's Jordan Wood woke up many nights in agony because of searing pain in his right shoulder. The 220-pounder, who won the Southeastern Regional Class AAA title at Oxford on Saturday, was working out last summer in Colorado with members of the senior world team. He landed on his elbow and tore his labrum. Wood saw his coming junior season flash before his eyes. "I was feeling really great [that summer]," Wood said after his championship win by injury default over Upper Darby's Josh Yeboah-Gyasi.

Upper Dublin found out first hand last year that playbacks are no place to try and reach the state tournament from. Wednesday night, Allison Chernow made sure the Cardinals would not have to go through all that again. The junior point guard tied things with a pair of free throws at the end of regulation and then made a layup late in overtime to send host Upper Dublin to a 36-33 victory over Perkiomen Valley in the second round of the District 1 Class AAAA tournament. The win guarantees a spot in states for the Cardinals, who fell a game short in playbacks last year.
