Professionals who work in industry must make quality their number-one priority, corporate managers, industrial-technology specialists and students were told last week at Cheyney University's 10th annual Industry Day. Jan Gaudin, manager of quality programs at Boeing Helicopter Co. in Ridley, told them that "we need to always be dissatisfied with the level of excellence achieved. " Gaudin, the keynote speaker at the conference, said that "whatever we are doing today can be done better tomorrow.

Osagie Osunde rushed for 182 yards and two touchdowns and freshman Alex Walsh kicked three field goals as West Chester tallied its first win over Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 18 years, 30-20, yesterday in West Chester. Osunde averaged 7 yards per carry and scored on a pair of 1-yard runs in the first quarter, while Matt Burdalski threw for 231 yards and one score for West Chester (2-1), which had more than 500 yards of total offense. IUP (0-2) got a pair of touchdown runs from Chris Morgan and a touchdown pass from Andrew Krewatch but couldn't overcome Walsh's school-record performance.

In college basketball, there are no constants. Players arrive with a shelf life. Eventually, they're leaving - but usually not all at once. At Cheyney University, this season's women's team is brand new. There's not a returning veteran in the group. Cheyney coach Marilyn Stephens, in her third season at the school, knew this was coming - more or less. In 2009-10, eight of her 10 players were seniors. They lost another player to academics, and another decided to concentrate on track.

Mansfield's sports information director may have overstated things a bit when he spoke about the Mountaineers' football game tomorrow at Cheyney. "The game of the century will be played Saturday," Steve McCloskey said. Mansfield coach Joe Viadella was more reserved. His squad has won one of its last 19 games - 20-7 over Cheyney last year - and he does not want the losing to continue against a Wolves team riding the nation's longest winless streak (52 games). "No disrespect to Cheyney, but nobody wants to be the team that breaks the streak," Viadella said.

The campuses of West Chester and Cheyney are separated by only six miles, but the football programs have been years apart. It's been 10 years, in fact, since Cheyney has been able to beat the Rams, a Division II powerhouse. Tomorrow at 7 p.m., the Wolves (3-5, 3-1) meet host West Chester (6-1, 3-0), which is ranked No. 9 nationally. It's a great chance for Cheyney to make West Chester pay for those 10 years of futility, and in the process, take sole possession of first place in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference East Division race.

Bounce back from a 19-8 season? Yes, bounce back. Remember, Cheyney went 29-5 two years ago and reached the NCAA Division II Final Four. The Wolves should be strong again this season in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, even though their top player, 6-foot-2 guard Clarence Green, will be lost for the first semester due to academic ineligibility - and even though coach Charlie Songster says his team is still a ship without a rudder. "I'm looking for somebody actually to take over and be a leader on the floor," said Songster, who has a five-year record of 105-40.

Ask Cheyney University president W. Clinton Pettus the source for his latest ideas on how to better market the historically black college, and he'll likely say: "Israel. " Pettus returned last month from a weeklong trip to the Middle East thinking that Cheyney should try to define its niche back home more clearly - and target Latinos more aggressively as potential students. "As we looked at the institutions in Israel, we came to understand that they each had clearly defined their niche and their image, and that got me thinking about how often people in the United States raise questions about why historically black colleges continue to exist," Pettus said.

A West Chester University assistant basketball coach remained hospitalized and two players and the team manager were recovering at home yesterday from injuries suffered Monday night in a brawl with two seconds left in a game against rival Cheyney at Cheyney's Cope Hall. Bernie Driscoll, 34, was listed in satisfactory condition at Riddle Memorial Hospital in Delaware County with a broken jaw and a concussion suffered when angry Cheyney fans stormed the floor near the end of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference game.

Cheyney shot 73 percent from the field in the second half to turn a tight game into a laugher last night as the Wolves advanced in the NCAA Division II Eastern Regionals with a 106-85 thrashing of Edinboro. In tonight's second round, Cheyney (27-4), ranked sixth in Division II, will meet host Gannon (25-5), a 78-66 winner over Millersville last night. The Wolves led 38-35 at halftime and fell behind for the only time in the game, at 41-40, with 18 minutes, 21 seconds remaining.

Cheyney track coach Jim Washington is hoping that his teams' outdoor season will start better than the indoor season finished. The Wolves coach was hoping that both his men's and women's 1,600-meter relay teams would do well March 4 at the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference championships at Kutztown. But the Wolves' luck began to turn sour two days before the meet when sophomore Tony Dandridge banged into a hurdle and injured an ankle. Dandridge wasn't even part of the men's 1,600 team, but his injury was an omen.

John Murphy was in his doctor's office one late-November day in 2013, reading a newspaper "from cover to cover" to pass the time till his appointment. Murphy, a history buff interested in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, came across an application to participate in an auction for the Squire Cheyney Estate in Thornbury Township, Delaware County. In 1777, Thomas Cheyney, a Thornbury farmer, rode on horseback through the British lines and dodged musket balls to alert Gen. George Washington that the Redcoats were about to outflank his army at Brandywine Creek.

West Chester University is in the early stages of scouting sites to establish campuses and accommodate growing enrollment. "If we're really going to be able to accommodate students who want a West Chester education, we're going to have to do it someplace other than here," said Greg R. Weisenstein, 68, who will retire March 31 after seven years at the helm of the largest university in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. "We're landlocked, and there's only so many students our community can absorb.

We sports fans hit a certain age, and suddenly it's the loss column that occupies our attention. Once a distant peal, the constant toll of death and change rings louder every day. A consequential career ends. A boyhood hero dies. A beloved institution is diminished. A sports tradition is obscured by innovation. Week to week, the terrain of the familiar shifts. On Wednesday, with a victory at Cheyney, a niece played what was likely her final competitive basketball game. Throughout the last 15 winters, Katie Fitzpatrick's talents provided entertainment as well as an excuse for the family to gather.

Cheyney University, which has been running a deficit and experienced a 30 percent enrollment drop this year, has been placed on probation by the body that accredits colleges and universities. The historically black university, on the boundary between Chester and Delaware Counties, has two years to correct financial concerns raised by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education or face losing accreditation. That loss would mean that the university's students no longer would be eligible for state or federal financial aid. Frank G. Pogue, interim president of Cheyney, and Frank T. Brogan, chancellor of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, of which Cheyney is part, said they were committed to fixing the problems.

WHY? You won't come across many better souls than Chris Rouhlac. He's 69. A teacher for most of his life, he's been married 40 years to the same woman (Marcella). And there are times when even she will ask him why he's in the first season of his second tour as the football coach at Cheyney, some two decades after the first one ended. "She thinks I'm nuts anyway," Rouhlac said, laughing. "I try to make her understand I'm doing this because I'm trying to develop young men. My father worked in the YMCA here at Cheyney, helping youngsters go from kids to adults.

I once spent a day with Widener University basketball coach C. Alan Rowe, which meant going to class. Even at age 63, Rowe was teaching five Widener math courses a semester. He seemed to know all the names of his students without a seating chart. His first words to one calculus class: "Your hats, gentlemen. " This was 1994. This man was delightfully old school. Rowe never complimented his players - like ever, even his favorites. He simply drilled them in the principles that he held dear.

Cheyney University has lost more than half of its enrollment in the last five years, figures released Wednesday show. The historically black university has been struggling with finances and declining enrollment for years, and just this summer was rapped for mismanaging student financial aid, which could cost the school millions. But the latest enrollment drop of more than 300 students leaves the rural Chester County institution with just 711 enrolled. This has placed the school at a crossroads.

For the second time in a decade, Cheyney University has failed to properly manage financial aid that it awards students, and as a result may owe the U.S. Department of Education more than $29 million. Errors were found in nearly 85 percent of about 4,400 financial aid records reviewed from 2011 to 2014, according to a report released Thursday by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The university, one of 14 in the system, could not provide high school transcripts for 45 percent of the students who received aid during that period, the system said.

Western University, founded in 1865; Leland University, 1870; Bishop College, 1881; St. Paul's College, 1888; Daniel Payne College, 1889: These are some of the historically black colleges and universities across America that shut down after years of fighting financial calamities. Without major changes, Pennsylvania's Cheyney University, founded in 1837, could close too. There are a number of reasons. Perhaps at the top of the list is a lack of the leadership needed over the past decade to make Cheyney more competitive in attracting students of any race.

West Chester and Cheyney - two universities in the state's higher education system - are planning "a new level of collaboration" on academics and operations, their presidents announced this week in a joint e-mail to staff, students and alumni. Officials from both schools insist the move is not a precursor for a merger between Cheyney, a historically black university that has struggled financially, and nearby West Chester, which is growing and thriving. More than a year ago, West Chester officials had considered breaking off from the state system in part because they thought they were losing money to weaker schools.
