LA SALLE University officials announced they will consider laypersons for the president's job for the first time in the school's 150-year history. The board of trustees recently approved changes to the university's bylaws allowing for greater flexibility as it seeks to replace Brother Michael J. McGinniss, who will step down in May after 15 years as president.

CHICAGO - Pete Mackanin will listen to the stadium organist on Friday afternoon when the Phillies begin batting practice at Wrigley Field. He'll be waiting to hear his high school fight song.

The road to Mackanin's first full-time major-league manager job started in an empty lot on this city's South Side.

JACKSON, N.J.- After a while, there wasn't much else St. Augustine could do but pray that the other team would stop hitting so many shots. "They shot the lights out," Hermits coach Paul Rodio said.

The Hermits fell, 83-77, Tuesday night in the South Jersey Non-Public A final at Jackson Liberty High School.
