Chichester coach Al Cini does not have to wonder anymore which direction his girls' basketball team is going in. Especially after the Eagles' Del-Val League game with seven-time defending league champion Sun Valley Tuesday. A last-second shot by Eagles sophomore Jamie Blumenthal tied the score at 41. Chichester, playing without top players Patti Borcky and Lynn Baronsky, who had fouled out, could not hang on in the overtime, losing, 47-41. The loss snapped Chichester's four-game winning streak, but it gave Cini and his team a renewed outlook as to just where it stands in the race for the Del-Val League title: right in the thick of it. "We've come together," Cini said.

The last four months haven't been easy for James Hamler. The Chester wide receiver expected a lot from this football season, but all he got was disappointment. The Clippers had only won once entering their Del-Val League National Conference game Saturday at Chichester. And they had gone through four quarterbacks before settling on sophomore Vernon Swiggett. It came a little late - the final game of the season - but at least Hamler got some satisfaction. He caught a season-high five passes for 105 yards in Chester's 21-2 victory over Chichester.

Taking a visit to the U.S. Naval Academy and getting back from a prom at 3 a.m. isn't exactly the prescribed method for preparing to compete in a powerlifting meet the next day. But try telling that to Chichester senior Jim Jackson. Jackson claimed the 181-pound title with a 1,330-pound total of three lifts on Saturday in the Pennsylvania State Coaches Powerlifting Association, held at Glen Mills last weekend . Compounding all the traveling Jackson did on Friday was a stomach ailment he suffered a few days earlier.

First-year Chichester coach Joe Woods notched his first Del-Val win with a 75-73 victory over Interboro Friday. In large part, he has senior guard Craig Killinen to thank for it. Killinen scored 35 points, including five 3-pointers and the clinching free throws with 5 seconds remaining. "Craig is one of the best guards in the league," Woods said. "But with all the great guards this league has, he is overshadowed somewhat. He's really playing well at both ends of the floor.

With a first-round 85, Jon Hopson didn't scare any of the tournament leaders at the state golf championships held at Penn State's blue course Tuesday. But his second-round 80 on Wednesday, moving him up 20 places to 32, served notice that the Chichester sophomore will be a force to reckon with in the future. "I wasn't real happy with the way I played, but 80 wasn't bad considering the conditions - it was really windy and cold," Hopson said. "I only three putted once the second day, but I thought I could have put up two 75s if I had been prepared.

Someday the stopwatch might turn against Marc Iacoangelo. For the last year, however, the Chichester junior has been in control of the clock. Iacoangelo continued his rapid drop in the 100-meter dash in the Eagles' 102-48 nonleague victory over visiting Garnet Valley last Friday. Iacoangelo won the event in 11.1 seconds, down from the 11.4 he ran in a scrimmage against Interboro the previous week. Major progress was also made last season, which he concluded with a 11.6 clocking after beginning the year at 12.9.

The Chichester Eagles used a strong running game and a solid defense to grind out a 28-15 victory over host Unionville in a Del-Val League game yesterday. The victory improved the Eagles' record to 3-1 (2-0 in league play), while dropping Unionville to 2-3 (2-1). "We just fell too far behind early in the game," said Unionville coach Mike Duggan. "It was just too far to come back. " Chichester scored on its first possession of the game and never gave up the lead. After returning the opening kickoff to their own 46-yard line, the Eagles used eight plays, only one of which was a pass, to march 54 yards to the game's first touchdown.

The ball had a different sound coming off the bats of the Chichester softball team. Loud and defined, the crack was prominent from the top of the lineup to the bottom, from the first inning until the fifth and final inning, in the Eagles' 13-1 nonleague victory over Garnet Valley. Crack, a rope to the left side. Crack, a line drive through the middle. Crack, a bullet to right field. In other words, Chichester (10-1) was smoking the ball against the Jaguars (9-5). "That's a good team," Meghan Wimmer said of the Jaguars.

Despite his Chichester football team's 39-0 loss to host Solanco in a season opener Friday night, coach Ted Woolery had a warm feeling. Yes, Solanco's wing-T attack produced touchdown passes of 89, 73 and 35 yards as well as a 40-yard TD run. And Chichester's offense managed 109 total yards. Also, the Eagles completed 4 of 21 passes and saw two punts blocked and another spoiled by a bad snap. One of the blocked punts was returned for a touchdown. But after the game, the team huddled at midfield, and quarterback Jeff Green handed Woolery the game ball to honor the coach's father, Andrew, 88, who had died Wednesday.

ALLENTOWN - Pressed up against the fence at Patriots Park, Meg Wimmer was her usual engaged and animated self. The Chichester captain was talking, clapping, and gesticulating. Tiffany Malin had just beaten out an infield single in the bottom of the seventh inning. This meant Wimmer was likely to get at least one more at-bat in an Eagles' uniform. The Brown recruit, who had put her team on her back all year long, eventually made her way to the plate with two outs. She did exactly what her teammates have come to expect from her, roping one to right-center and knocking in a run. Fittingly, it was the final hit and run scored of Chichester's season, as the Eagles fell to Nanticoke, 6-1, in the quarterfinals of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs.

The freshman shortstop connected on a two-out, two-strike, bases-loaded single in the bottom of the eighth Wednesday to send the Panthers to a 1-0 victory in the first round of the PIAA Class AA softball tournament at Plymouth Whitemarsh.

The pop of the softball after it comes out of Meg Wimmer's right hand and into Nicole O'Donnell's glove is more noticeable these days. Since the Chichester ace first stepped onto the mound this season, that sound has been louder. And to opposing batters, the ball has looked more like a blur than usual. Wimmer, a senior, has been an imposing presence for the Eagles (21-2) since she walked into the circle as a freshman. But for her final campaign, she's been putting together something really special.

Claire Emplit got a haircut. The Villa Maria softball coach promised her team that it could cut off her braids if it won a district crown. After a 1-0 win over top-seeded Chichester in the District 1 Class AAA final Thursday at Strath Haven, the Hurricanes grabbed the scissors. "They did what they had to do," Emplit said. "They've been waiting all season to cut off my braid, and it feels amazing. " Junior Maddie Abbot struck out seven and walked none in a three-hitter to lead No. 3 Villa Maria (16-6)

From the street, Bob Shoudt's home looks like any other in his King of Prussia neighborhood. The red brick and white siding is like his neighbors', and flower beds surround the walkway. The front door squeaks when it opens, and there is a staircase in the kitchen that leads to a basement. Therein lies what makes the home unique - the gathered fruit of a 51-year coaching career. Cases and shelves, featuring dozens of autographed baseballs, signed football helmets and track & field medals, cover the wall farthest from the stairs.

Nicole O'Donnell has heard her father's stories. The ones about Jim O'Donnell's days playing in the Phillies farm system, and his history in Upper Darby. She remembers him telling her about his long streak without committing a passed ball. Following in his footsteps as a catcher, O'Donnell has learned a lot from those conversations. For the first 12 games of the season, the sophomore had not let a single passed ball by her. In a 7-1 win over Cardinal O'Hara on Friday afternoon, however, O'Donnell let a first-inning pitch from Meghan Wimmer go through her legs.
