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. "Obviously, it's pretty cool," the 18-year-old said late Saturday afternoon. "This doesn't happen to many high school players. " The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Bogucki mixes a fastball clocked in the high-80-m.p.h. range, slider, and change-up. His fastball has topped out at 93 m.p.h.

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.

One second Abby Kapp was underneath the basket for the Boyertown girls' basketball team, finishing a layup. The next, No. 23 drove the lane to get to the basket or made a backdoor cut. Then there Kapp was again, this time knocking down three-point shots from beyond the arc. The start of the contest between the Bears and Perkiomen Valley had a frenetic pace, thanks in large part to Kapp, who was everywhere on the floor for Boyertown. Rebounds? She did that. Steals? She grabbed them when her team severely needed to force a turnover.

Jordan Wood, now a senior at Boyertown, was wrestling and training at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado in August 2014 when his story took a left turn. After two runner-up finishes at the state championships, Wood was a favorite to cement his place atop the state wrestling scene. It was just a few weeks before his junior year started when his dream season was derailed by a torn labrum. He underwent surgery to fix his shoulder, but he wasn't sure whether he'd see the wrestling mat at all last season.

The clock was off and the defenders were gone when Will Schul scored his second goal Thursday night. It counted just the same. Schul converted the deciding shot as Boyertown topped host Owen J. Roberts, 4-1, on penalty kicks in the Pioneer Athletic Conference boys' soccer final. The Boyertown girls also took the league soccer title. Schul headed in a goal before halftime to put the Bears ahead by 1-0. Bruce Dowlin tied it up early in the second half. Girls' Soccer Kate Henesey scored two early goals and No. 2 Lansdale Catholic held on for a 2-1 win over visiting No. 7 Conwell-Egan.

On the same stage three years ago, Sarafina Valenti remembered, she was really nervous, even with what she called "the best back line" in front of her. "When I was a little freshman, I feel like I just shook the entire time back there," Boyertown's goalkeeper said about the 2012 Pioneer Athletic Conference championship game. That player has been gone for some time now, as the current version of Valenti is one with confidence and swagger. It's evident in the way the Penn State recruit commands the box and how she barks out orders to her teammates to push up or come back.
