Cheltenham found out last night why Central Dauphin 6-foot-1 senior Alyssa Thomas has a full-ride to Maryland. The Rams' forward dropped 40 points, 20 rebounds and two blocks in her best Wilt Chamberlain impression at Reading High, as Cheltenham fell, 75-68, in the PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinals. Panthers senior guard Shayla Felder, who has a scholarship to play at Kutztown University, led Cheltenham with 24 points. Sophomore guard Ciara Andrews added 20, and junior Tiffany Johnson finished with 12. "There's really not much to say," Felder said of the loss.

Downingtown's season ended the way it began. The first game on the Whippets girls' basketball schedule resulted in a 70-45 loss to Central Dauphin, ultimately the District 3 champion, on Dec. 1. Tuesday night, the Whippets' season came to a halt with a 55-49 loss in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA state playoffs to the same Rams, who will play Council Rock in the quarterfinals tomorrow. The games in between, however, told the true story of Downingtown. "The game showed the improvement we made over the course of the year," coach Bob Schnure said after the loss that knocked the Whippets out of the chase for their sixth state championship.

When it was all over, Father Judge soccer coach John Dunlop could barely talk, but he had one more thing to say to his players: Go thank the fans. So the Father Judge players took off toward the stands. Dunlop decided to follow, with his right arm raised to the sky. "That has to be one of the best high school games I've ever seen," said Dunlop, who recently earned his 100th victory. Thanks to an improbable double-overtime goal by junior Gavin Whalen, Father Judge can continue its magical run all the way to the PIAA Class AAA state championship game.

Heading into its second-round PIAA Class AAAA state playoff game, the Downingtown girls' basketball team hopes its season does not end the way it started. The Whippets lost their first game of the season, 70-45, to Central Dauphin, the team they will face tonight at 6 at Conestoga Valley High School outside of Lancaster. That game began a four-game losing skid for Downingtown. But the Whippets got back on course to build a 21-8 record and earn the No. 3 seed in District 1. "We got off to a bad start," Downingtown coach Bob Schnure said of the previous meeting with the Rams.

The all-time leading scorer in Coatesville girls' basketball history and perhaps a possible heir apparent were too much for Central Dauphin last night at Pottstown in the first round of the PIAA Class AAAA state playoffs. Kieraah Marlow, who has more than 2,500 career points, and Amber White, a sophomore who scored her 1,000th career point in the District 1 playoffs, scored 18 points each as the Red Raiders sailed past the Rams, 61-30. Coatesville (26-3), the District 1 champion, advances to the second round against rejuvenated Cheltenham, the No. 4 seed from District 1, and all-American center Laura Harper on Tuesday at a site and time to be determined.

The first quarter told the story for Cheltenham in the PIAA Class AAAA boys' basketball second round last night. The Panthers, the No. 2 team from District 1, found themselves down by 16-4 at the end of the first quarter against fifth-place District 3 representative Central Dauphin. Despite a 29-point fourth quarter, it was a deficit they would never overcome, and they lost to the Rams in a wild finish, 64-62. The Rams (20-11) advance to the quarterfinals Saturday night against Parkland, which defeated Reading, 54-52, in another second-round game last night.

Council Rock has a field hockey program rich in tradition and with lots of impressive numbers, but the one statistic the Indians were not happy with was an 0-4 record over the last four seasons in the PIAA state tournament. That streak is over. The Indians picked up a 1-0 victory over Central Dauphin in a first-round game yesterday at Methacton High. It was the first Council Rock victory at states since the semifinals of the 1994 tournament. The Indians tied Emmaus in double overtime in the championship game that season.

Cheltenham senior Stacey Smalls has been to the PIAA state tournament in each of the last four seasons, and wants a little bit more than to reach the semifinals this year. In her first two seasons, Smalls saw her teams eliminated by Northampton. As a freshman reserve, she scored two points as the Konkrete Kids edged the Panthers, 64-62, in a Class AAAA semifinal. As a sophomore, Smalls tossed in a team-high 14 points, but the Panthers fell, 45-38, in the second round. Last season, it was again a second-round exit for Cheltenham, when it lost, 58-45, to Wilson.

Central Dauphin sophomore Jennifer Harris took a little while to get into the game last night, but once she did, she lifted the Rams to a 55-49 victory over Downingtown in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA girls' basketball playoffs at Conestoga Valley High. Harris, who averages 19 points per game, scored 30 points last night, including 19 during the decisive fourth quarter. The victory put Central Dauphin (27-4) into a quarterfinal matchup on Friday against Council Rock, which advanced last night with a 71-46 victory over Emmaus.

Coatesville said it wanted to "take it up to the next level" in the PIAA Class AAA baseball tournament. And to be sure, its opponent yesterday, Central Dauphin, was on a level above just about every team the Raiders faced this season. The Rams, with three future Division I college players in their lineup, didn't dominate the Raiders yesterday in the first round of the state playoffs. But Central Dauphin made sure Coatesville paid for every mistake. And in the end, the Rams posted a 7-3 victory, eliminating Coatesville from the tourney.

BRAD SCHNEIDER was just a sophomore for La Salle High in 2012 when he stepped to the plate, knees knocking in the quarterfinals of the Class AAAA playoffs. Schneider, who missed nearly that entire Catholic League season with an ankle injury, was called upon in the seventh inning in a sacrifice-bunt situation against Central Dauphin. "First at-bat pretty much of that whole year," Schneider said Wednesday as the Explorers (18-5) prepared for today's PIAA championship game. "I was so nervous, but I got the bunt down and, on the next pitch, Ryan Otis hit a sacrifice fly and we went to the semifinals.

Saturday was a bad time to be a record in Coatesville. Athletes were smashing marks left and right during the 44th Track and Field Association of Greater Philadelphia Spring Invitational. Five individual meet records fell in the boys-only event, including in the 100-meter dash, a race in which two runners broke the old mark. La Salle's Charles Headen won the 100 in 10.87 seconds. Randall Johnson of Central Bucks South came in right behind at 11.13. Cardinal O'Hara's Kevin James broke the 1,600 record by less than a second when he crossed the finish line in 4 minutes, 16.86 seconds.

When she pitches the way she did Monday, it seems as if Jackie Bilotti has been doing this forever. Truth is, she's only a sophomore - a very good one. Bilotti fired a one-hit shutout, and North Penn beat District 11's Northampton, 1-0, at Allentown's Pates Park in the first round of the PIAA State Class AAAA softball tournament. North Penn, ranked fourth by The Inquirer in Southeastern Pennsylvania, scratched across a run in the fourth inning. Erin Maher reached base on a ball that didn't leave the infield and then stole second.

SHILLINGTON, Pa. - As Cardinal O'Hara players took their warm-ups Friday night, they saw their opponents wearing shirts with "Finish Strong" across the back.

O'Hara dominated from the start and easily defeated the Rams, 60-24, in the quarterfinals of the PIAA Class AAAA girls' basketball tournament at Governor Mifflin.

The Spring-Ford girls' basketball team was clicking on both ends of the court, turning stout defense into efficient offense, in defeating Wallenpaupack, 58-44, Tuesday night in the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament at Bethlehem Freedom. The Rams forced 19 first-half turnovers as they racked up a 25-14 lead at the break before the game opened up considerably. Senior forward Shelby Mueller had nine points and eight rebounds, four on offense, and senior guard Brittany Moore drained three three-pointers on her way to a team-high 14 points.
