Kelly Patrick is taking her hockey stick to the beach. The Moorestown senior will attend the University of California at Berkeley and play field hockey for the Golden Bears this fall. Patrick chose California over Michigan State and Georgetown. Last fall, Patrick was a key component in the Quakers' offense as she delivered nine goals from the right wing. Moorestown went 19-1-1, and its only loss was a 1-0 decision to Shore Regional in the South Jersey Group 2 tournament.

Penn couldn't shake the rust from a monthlong layoff in its opening game of the NCAA baseball playoffs yesterday. The Quakers (27-10), who last played on April 27, were hammered by 18th- ranked California (37-23), 13-3, in the first round of the double- elimination NCAA Central regional. Tonight, Penn meets Southern, which lost last night to No. 4 Texas, 7-3. The loser is eliminated. Bart Frets hit a two-run homer and John Kuehl drove in three runs for California. The Golden Bears battered Penn starter Doug Smidt for seven hits and eight runs in 3 1/3 innings.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Hagen Danner homered and struck out 12, and Huntington Beach, Calif., spoiled the Pennsylvania party at the Little League World Series with a 2-0 victory over the hometown heroes from Clinton County on Thursday night. California will face Billings, Mont., in the U.S. final Saturday. Montana beat California, 1-0, in seven innings Wednesday night. Pennsylvania was eliminated. Danner was the biggest reason with a stellar night on the mound, leaving in the sixth because of Little League's pitch-count rules.

William W. Scranton 3d, the Republican who narrowly lost the election for governor last fall, has taken the advice of Horace Greeley and gone west. Scranton, 40, who served as lieutenant governor for eight years until January, started this week as chief operating officer of a California mail- order business that he said sells "high-quality garden tools and other related garden items. " "It was an offer I thought was terrific and so I took it," said Scranton. His wife, Coral, who is employed as an assistant manager at WITF, Harrisburg's public television station, and the couple's three children still live in Hummelstown, near Harrisburg.

Powerball's jackpot is on a faster trajectory, and California could be the cause. Two weeks ago, the most populous state in the union joined Powerball, and immediately set a record, selling $8,408,180 million worth of tickets in its first three days. That's "an all-time record for any new Powerball member," according to a California Lottery news release. More sales mean faster growing jackpots. A week ago, the grand prize was $80 million, and the last six times that happened, five times it rose by the minimal increment, first to $90 million, then to $100 million.

From the rational Atlantic coastline, California's gubernatorial recall seems easily dismissed as just more left-coast lunacy. Only the home of Hollywood could muster an Oct. 7 election roster featuring: the Terminator, a porn purveyor, a grown-up child star, an SUV-hating columnist, a billboard bimbo, a one-time baseball commissioner, and a score of citizens who collected 65 signatures and $3,500 to get on the ballot. Conventional political candidates dropped like flies in a week of "Who's In/Who's Out" talk show tattle.

THANKS to hipster vegans, almond milk is suddenly a thing: Almonds, a "thirsty crop," are draining California's water and increasing the drought, all for a product that's only 2 percent nuts. Right? Hang on: Actually, almond milk was a thing back in the middle ages, used widely because it didn't spoil as quickly as cow's milk, and because for many, almonds were easier to get than cows. And the $900 million spent on almond milk last year, making it the declining dairy industry's top competitor, came from a much larger crowd than vegans and/or hipsters.

From the start, Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno have used their record collection as a source of inspiration, gleefully embracing the past with little anxiety of influence. The duo formed in Los Angeles in 2009 as a vehicle for Cosentino's yearning, soaring songs and love of girl-group pop, surf rock, and pop-punk. Crazy For You , their debut album, arrived in 2010. "The first record, there was a lot of influence from the '60s," says Cosentino, on the phone from Portland, Ore., early in a tour that comes Sunday to Union Transfer.

There was no shortage of drama Sunday in the final of the collegiate rugby sevens championship at PPL Park in Chester. The repeat of last year's final was neck-and-neck through 14 minutes of play as the teams ended regulation tied at 12. The Kutztown fans in maroon and gold making up nearly half of the 11,023 fans in attendance seemed to grasp how close their team was to upsetting the tournament's early favorite. Echoes of "Let's go, Kutztown" reverberated across the stadium. But two minutes into sudden death overtime, University of California cocaptain and tournament MVP Jake Anderson broke away from a pack of Kutztown players and surged toward the end zone, scoring the final try of his collegiate career in a 17-12 victory.

Walking off the field in sticky late-afternoon heat Saturday after their third pool-play game - against Virginia Tech - the Golden Bears had a familiar view: parents decked in navy and gold smacking their palms together in support; sweaty, shirtless fans sipping from cans of beer; and the rosy-cheeked faces of...

Anthony Racobaldo is a three-sport athlete at Williamstown. But when it came to college, Racobaldo knew it was time to focus on one sport. He decided on wrestling - in California, of all places. "I had never been there," Racobaldo said of the Golden State. "But once I visited, I loved it. It's awesome. " Racobaldo signed a wrestling scholarship Wednesday with California Baptist, an NCAA Division II program in Riverside, Calif. Racobaldo said he visited the school in late March - when the weather still was winter-like in South Jersey - and was impressed.

KEVIN HARVICK'S nickname is "The Closer" for his ability to seize leads near the end of races and win. Brad Keselowski could be "Closer II" (or maybe "Kloser II") following his victory Sunday in California. The California race report will read Keselowski led only the final lap. Actually, he paced only a little more than half the final lap, but all anyone cares about is which driver takes the checkered flag. A win is a win. Until Keselowski surged to the front, it appeared the winner would be either Kurt Busch or Kevin Harvick.

SolarCity Corp., the nation's largest rooftop photovoltaic developer, is hoping a new day is dawning for solar in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The San Mateo, Calif., company announced Thursday a bundle of new financing options aimed at customers in the Peco Energy Co. service territory. SolarCity and its competitors typically install their systems on customers' roofs for no money down. The campaign is aimed at reversing the shrinkage in the Pennsylvania solar market, which went into hibernation after 2011, when federal and state incentives dwindled.

Update: Many have asked if Justine made it home all right. Here's her report. When I was struggling in the snow yesterday, the last thing I was thinking about was how many Twitter followers it might get me. But by the end of the day, my story had been viewed thousands of times, and I had an unexpected number of emails from well-wishers in my inbox. The descriptions of Philly's springtime I received in many of the emails were heartening – as were the assurances that even locals dislike these conditions.

CALIFORNIA came back to haunt Oded Daniel Gal again, 26 years after the private investigator hired two goons to beat up John Wayne's daughter there for a client. Today, Gal lives in a quiet town-house complex in Cherry Hill, though his car still has California tags and at least one of his phones has a California area code. Early on the morning of Dec. 4, agents with the U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security Services visited the home and, according to court documents, arrested Gal for allegedly obtaining a passport in New York City in 2006 in the name of a California man who died in 1982.

Deena Kastor wrapped herself in an American flag and trotted back onto the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon course for a victory stroll. The 41-year-old set out Sunday morning aiming for a world record. And as Kastor approached the finish line at Eakins Oval, the race announcer shouted that the 2004 Olympic medalist did just that. Kastor navigated the 13.1-mile course in 1 hour, 9 minutes, and 36 seconds, besting the previous women's masters division mark by 20 seconds. The masters division is for runners aged 40 and older.
