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.

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.
