Even with the slight lead his team had at halftime of Saturday night's clash against fellow Southeastern Pennsylvania power Chester, Imhotep Charter coach Andre Noble was anything but pleased. Just ask Devin Liggeons. "He was getting on us about our intensity," the junior forward said. "He said we needed to be more physical, for us to get after it like we really wanted it. " The Panthers were considerably sharper after intermission and, in ending their losing skid against the Clippers, posted a 59-52 victory in the Kobe Bryant Scholastic Play-By-Play Classic at Harriton.

They remained in touch with their alma mater over the years, often attending football games, said Meredith Sossman, associate executive director of the West Chester University Foundation, the school's fund-raising arm.

WEST CHESTER West Chester Borough Council has voted to purchase the Barclay Grounds, but volunteers must raise $1.2 million in grants and donations to see the park in the heart of the borough saved from development.

Otherwise, the property does go back to the developer, and it will be developed. " The privately owned 1.3-acre tract, in front of an estate house formerly used as a Quaker home for the elderly, came under the threat of development last year when a company that had recently purchased the land proposed tearing down many of the 130-year-old trees and building four luxury homes.
