Deidra Maye lives with her mother and six brothers and sisters in a cramped, one-floor apartment in a housing project in Kinston, N.C., a small, impoverished tobacco town about 40 miles west of the state capital. Like her surroundings, Deidra's world can sometimes get pretty bleak. Even in her third-grade classroom, the 9-year-old usually winds up on life's underside. Rarely, if ever, does she rise above her classmates. Her drawings are never hung on the wall, A's are non-existent.

Lance Armstrong had come here to win gold. He had broken his neck in training, gotten hit by a car, and kept working to win one medal. "I went as fast as I could go," said the man who has a pretty fair knowledge of how far he can push himself. Yesterday, over a 49-mile course, Armstrong was 34 seconds short. Good enough for a bronze medal in the Olympic cycling time trial, his first Olympic medal in his third trip to the Games. But not the reason he had kept going after winning his second Tour de France in July.

Caroline Boschetto, 13, of Doylestown, a student at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, invented a device that creates electricity from shower water. Gazelle Zerafati, 16, of Villanova, a student at the Baldwin School, investigated the effect of N-acetylaspartate on brain cells called oligodendrocytes. Kevin Li, 15, of Fort Washington, a student at Upper Dublin High School, discovered a creative, elegant way to support an ancient Euclidean geometry proof. These three outstanding young scientists were among 15 students who earned top honors in the Delaware Valley Science Fairs and an all-expenses-paid trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair next month in San Jose, Calif.

Kim Johnsson, a defenseman acquired from the New York Rangers in the Eric Lindros trade, signed a three-year contract with the Flyers, the club announced yesterday. The Flyers obtained Johnsson, 25, right winger Pavel Brendl, free-agent left winger Jan Hlavac and a third-round draft pick in 2003 in the deal for Lindros. Johnsson, who is 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, had five goals, 21 assists and 40 penalty minutes in 75 games for the Rangers last season, his second in the NHL. A native of Malmo, Sweden, Johnsson starred at the 2001 world championships for Sweden, which won the bronze medal.

The Philadelphia scholastic boys' basketball team repeated as champion of the Keystone State Games with a 107-87 victory over Nittany last night in the gold-medal game. Chester's Ray Carroll scored 25 points to lead Philadelphia. University City's Rasheed Brokenborough and Chester's Randy Maultsby each added 21. The Philadelphia junior girls' and junior boys' basketball teams had to settle for silver medals, as did the Delaware Valley youth boys' team. A free throw by Beth Ann McDonald with four seconds remaining gave Pocono the junior girls' basketball gold medal with a 49-48 triumph over Philadelphia.

Peirce Middle School teacher Charlotte Knighton wasn't sure how her Junior Science Olympiad Team was doing during the state championships last week at Juniata College. "As the scores started coming in during the day, it looked like it was close. We were very happy to come in second," said the science teacher, who coaches the team. And it looks as if the 28-member team from West Goshen will be heading for Auburn University to compete against top-scoring teams from around the country at the national competition on May 15 and 16. Peirce's team has an illustrious past in competing in the competition, which tests the science skills of students, grades six through nine, in different categories.

Not everyone in Upper Darby gets a day named in their honor, but then not many Upper Darby residents have made it to the Olympics. So Mike Teti, Olympic rower and bronze medalist in the summer games last month in Seoul, South Korea, saw Wednesday declared "Mike Teti Day" by the Upper Darby Township Council. At the weekly meeting Wednesday, Teti was presented with a proclamation, and in return he passed around the heavy bronze medal that he took home from Seoul. Accompanied by his father, Hank, Teti thanked the council, and particularly the township police department for a special greeting when he returned to the Philadelphia area Monday night.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia - On a Sunday that couldn't decide whether it was winter or spring, on a mountainside touched by sun and shadows, the United States ended its 2014 Winter Olympics in a familiar fashion. OK. Not bad. Pretty good. Bronze medal. Steven Holcomb and the U.S. four-man bobsled team captured the Americans' 28th and final medal of these Sochi Games, taking the bronze in another event won by the host Russians. Alexander Zubkov piloted Russia-1 to the gold, giving the 39-year-old a sweep of both men's bobsled events and cementing his country's medal-table dominance at its first-ever hosting the Winter Games.

IT WAS A Saturday to forget for Tom Brady. First, came word that Mariners fans - who no doubt also cheer for the Seahawks - had chanted, "Brady cheated," during a 4-2 loss to the visiting Red Sox at Safeco Field. Is anyone surprised? Brady, who is in the process of appealing his four-game suspension for his role in Deflategate, led the Patriots to a Super Bowl win over Seattle in February. While he may get his suspension reduced, Seattle fans are not likely to ever forgive him. Later that night, Brady was lampooned on "Saturday Night Live," a show that he has hosted.

Veteran Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen, exhausted from the Olympics and the travel, will sit out Thursday's game against visiting San Jose to give him an extra day of rest after his return from Sochi, Russia. Coach Craig Berube said Timonen will return to the lineup Saturday afternoon against the New York Rangers. Timonen, who practiced with the Flyers Wednesday for the first time since returning from the Olympics, helped Finland win the bronze medal, which he displayed in the locker room.

SOCHI - Katie Uhlaender had just been rocketing down a mountain of ice on a tiny piece of steel and fiberglass at more than 70 miles an hour. But the agonizingly slow descent that followed, one rung of the standings at a time, was far more frightening. With just three competitors to go in the fourth and final heat of Friday night's Olympic skeleton event, Uhlaender was in the lead. If only one of that trio failed to top her combined time of 3:54.34, the daughter of Charlie Manuel's late baseball roommate would earn a bronze medal in her third Olympic try. Watching her pursuers in front of the cameras at Sanki Sliding Center's kiss-and-cry area, Uhlaender was briefly buoyed when she saw one sled veer slightly off course.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia - The podium that Julia Mancuso stood on Monday, after capturing the bronze medal in super-combined, was her destination all along. It's just, as usual, the journey there was not as she envisioned. "I really felt like this summer, after training, that I'd come here as a favorite," Mancuso said. "And what happened was the complete opposite. "I spent so much time on making everything perfect that the first time when things didn't go perfectly, I sort of freaked out. I started questioning every single thing I had been doing.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Billy Rappo capped his high school wrestling career, and a bona fide era in Pennsylvania wrestling, in fitting fashion. With a state championship. Rappo, a Council Rock South senior, won his second straight PIAA Class AAA championship, using an array of takedowns, reversals, and near-falls to best Manheim Township's Matt Grossmann, 12-0, in the 113-pound final Saturday night at the Giant Center. "A win's a win, but it's always good to dominate a kid, put the exclamation point on it," Rappo said.

State Wrestling Contenders Numerous area wrestlers likely will win matches this weekend - even place in the top eight, thus earning state medals - but who can make a run at a gold medal? Here they are in order, beginning with the greatest likelihood. 113: Billy Rappo (Council Rock South), a state champion at 103 pounds last year, is the clear favorite to bag another gold medal. He has wrestled as tough a schedule as anyone this season and, at 38-2, is primed for a title run. A victory here would give the Rappo family - in which there are five brothers - a sixth state title and end a true era in Pennsylvania wrestling in style.
