It's been a long time since the Catholic League walked off with a Carpenter Cup title. But it used an unusual play in the fifth inning to earn its third title overall and first since 1990 by beating Delaware County, 8-2, at Citizens Bank Park last night. With his team holding a 2-1 lead, Tim Hoban of Roman Catholic ripped a two-out single up the middle and stole second base before Sean Barksdale of Cardinal O'Hara drew a walk from Tim Gibson of Haverford High. Kennedy-Kenrick's Lenny DelGrippo, who led the Catholic League with a .636 batting average in the tournament, hit an infield single to short.

Joe Parisi, coach of the Catholic League's entry in the Carpenter Cup scholastic baseball tournament, knew that he had a wealth of talented hitters at his disposal when the tourney opened last week. "You look at the nine guys in our starting lineup and you can see that any one of them could bat second, third or fourth for anyone else (in the tournament)," Parisi said. Parisi had many reasons - 19 to be exact - to be proud of his squad's hitting prowess yesterday as the Catholic League outslugged Mercer County, 11-4.

The Eagles were 6-3 in league play to finish fourth. O'Hara and Carroll finished with 7-2 marks, but the Lions got the nod for the No. 2 spot in the playoffs by virtue of their win over the Patriots.

It won't happen tomorrow, and it might not happen for several more years, but there exists the possibility that Bishop Kenrick, of Norristown, will withdraw from the Catholic League. Athletic director Dave Smith confirms that Kenrick sought admission to the Pioneer Athletic Conference, which recently expanded from eight to 10 teams by taking in Great Valley and Owen J. Roberts. But he denies that the school now is trying to join the Suburban One League. "I hope people don't get the idea that we're looking to abandon the Catholic League," Smith said.

With three of the league's football-playing schools set to close in June, Catholic League athletic directors approved Thursday a proposal by football coaches to divide the league into two divisions. As it previously did, the five-team Red Division (Class AAAA) will include Archbishop Ryan, Father Judge, La Salle, Roman Catholic, and St. Joseph's Prep.

Joey Lancellotti had the type of baseball season that makes flowery prose clumsy and unnecessary. The junior for Archbishop Wood dominated from the mound and at the plate and helped the Vikings capture the Catholic League crown. That's why the North Carolina commit is the 2015 Daily News Most Valuable Player. As a pitcher Lancellotti finished 7-1 with a 0.67 ERA. He also allowed only five earned runs in more than 53 innings pitched. Last but not least, Lancellotti's complete-game no-hitter (14 strikeouts)

After a nail-biting conclusion to Catholic League baseball final, Archbishop Wood skipper Jim DiGuiseppe Jr. ripped an imaginary monkey off his father's back during an on-field celebration. Before handing over the reins to his son in 2012 and staying on as an assistant, Jim DiGuiseppe Sr. guided the squad for 17 years without capturing the first-place hardware. After three more seasons of frustration for the father-son duo, the Vikings ended a 22-year drought Saturday afternoon by holding off a late Neumann-Goretti rally and triumphing, 3-2, under sunny skies at Immaculata University.

"Let's go," an impassioned Kerri Dadalski yelled from first base. A hearty clap followed. It was the first inning, she'd just knocked in the first run of the game, and the Archbishop Ryan senior was already fired up. The Catholic League softball championship at Arcadia was still young when the Ragdolls' ace yelled the phrase for the first time, but it would become her mantra throughout the contest. Her teammates listened to their emotionally charged leader, and the Ragdolls won their second consecutive title, this time over St. Hubert, 5-2. Ryan (17-0)

Senior leadership, solid defense, and a pair of up-and-coming sophomore hurlers have sparked a major turnaround for the St. Joseph's Prep baseball program. After going 7-13 overall and 4-11 in Catholic League play last season, the Hawks are 15-5 and 9-3 entering a playoff quarterfinal Saturday against Father Judge. "A big thing this year is that we jelled as a team early on," senior shortstop Tyler Clark said. "That didn't happen last year. We were pretty good on paper, but didn't have the best chemistry.

If Temple still had a baseball program, Bobby Lang would be a walk-on candidate with the ability to serve as an extra arm on weekends. But since the Owls discontinued baseball and six other interscholastic sports last year, the Roman Catholic righthander will have to settle for playing at the club level and studying secondary education on North Broad Street. "I played in a lot of tournaments last summer, but, unfortunately, I really didn't get any looks," Lang said. Lang held Catholic League rival Archbishop Carroll to one hit and struck out eight through six innings, and the visiting Cahillites triumphed, 6-2, Tuesday afternoon in Radnor.

WHEN JIM Murray began his long association with St. Joseph's Prep, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, gas was 23 cents a gallon and James Dean was starring in "Rebel Without a Cause. " Sixty years later, Murray, Class of 1959, is still at 17th and Girard, although after this academic year, he will retire. Well . . . sort of. Murray, 73, will step down as athletic director, a post he's held since 1971, and no longer teach math - which he's done since '69. But he'll stay on as varsity soccer coach.
