"She loved the kids, and, while she could have had a job closer to home, she thought of the kids and school as part of her family.

Westward, ho! For sure. Thanks to the personal generosity of two 76ers employees, Philadelphia Elite, a club basketball team stocked with many of the city's top players, will have no trouble honoring its commitment to play this weekend in a tournament in California.

Police confirmed Hancock's story and made an arrest.

The photographs made the difference for nurse Megan Petock. They were stark and dramatic. They showed hospital patients from Africa who had long been without medical treatment; they were shown before surgery, and after. Petock, of Holland, pored over the Internet photos, then hopped a train to New York to see the exhibit in person. Before leaving the gallery, she made a personal commitment to volunteer herself aboard the floating hospital Mercy Ships. That day is less than three weeks away.

John Gleeson now knows how coaches at some of the bigger schools feel. The George School coach has always had to protect the few talented players that were available, but he still needed some varsity players to suit up for junior varsity games. However, with more than 50 players in the program this season, Gleeson will have a full JV team to back up his 29-player varsity. "We have a fairly decent second team for a change," he said after his team's season-opening 27-7 home win against Calvary Christian Academy on Saturday afternoon.

The Stern Hebrew boys' soccer team didn't win the state championship this fall. It finished the season with a 4-2 record, just two games over .500 in a short six-game schedule. But you wouldn't know that by the players' reaction after their 4-3 victory over Calvary Christian Academy on Oct. 26. "They put me up on their shoulders," coach Jack Kapenstein said. "They squirted me with water. It was the first time in my life I ever got that treatment. " It was also the first time the Blue Storm recorded a winning season in the history of their three-year-old program.

The biggest question swirling around the Keystone Scholastic Athletic Conference this season concerns the return of Faith Gross to Phil-Mont Christian Academy in January. Gross, a 6-foot-1 senior center, spent her junior year and the first semester of her senior year in South Africa, where her father is working as a missionary. In her first two years at Phil-Mont, Gross scored 805 points. Phil-Mont coach Bill DeHeer said Gross averaged 23 to 24 points a game for her school in South Africa.

While the recent makeover craze dominates television, no amount of car, home, clothing, or body alterations can contend with the ever-changing face of Bicentennial League girls' basketball. In recent years, Springfield High in Montgomery County and Gwynedd-Mercy Academy have departed, with Springfield heading to the Suburban One League and Gwynedd-Mercy settling into the Athletic Association of Catholic Academies. This year, the Bicentennial bid adieu to perennial power Villa Joseph Marie, which bolted for membership with the Catholic Academies.

While Tyler Scheuer's pitching and hitting are impressive, he's probably best known, at least nationally, for a skill away from the diamond. As can be seen in his video audition for America's Got Talent , a tryout that three years ago gained him top-40 Internet honors but did not lead to a TV appearance, the Calvary Christian Academy senior can balance just about any object on his nose or chin. "It started when I was in the fifth grade," Scheuer said. "I was at baseball practice and a little bored.
