Prep Charter will not face penalties for using two girls' basketball players with falsified addresses, said Robert Coleman, the School District of Philadelphia's executive director of athletics.

Coatesville's getting older. And it has city officials concerned. In 20 years, the average age of Coatesville's population has jumped from 34 to 36.5, not a tremendous increase, but "a clear indication that the young people aren't staying here," said City Manager Wayne "Ted" Reed. "They're leaving after they finish school. " Reed recently raised the matter before the city Planning Commission, saying Coatesville must attract industry and jobs to stop the emigration of its young.

Chester County Court Judge Thomas G. Gavin approved the terms of a plea bargain that will put Barlow in prison for 12 1/2 to 25 years, followed by 10 years' probation.

Playing a lineup of three guards and two small forwards may not win a lot of games for a lot of teams, but that kind of lineup gave Chester the PIAA District 1 Class AAAA title last night at Villanova's duPont Pavilion. Led by forward Keith Wood's 20 points, the Clippers defeated Coatesville, 77-62, before about 5,000 fans. All season, Chester (25-2) has played without the benefit of a big man. (Wood, a 6-foot-4 junior, comes closest to that description.) But against Coatesville, the Clippers didn't need a big man. Guards Larry Yarbray (16 points)

As Coatesville's backup quarterback last season, Emmitt Hunt says he learned more than just how to chart plays and hold a clipboard. While he saw little playing time, he watched strong-armed passer Manny Stocker, now at North Carolina State, and picked his brain. "We were close friends," Hunt said. "We watched film together, went over plays and such. That really helped me coming into this year. " Hunt showed his continuing development Saturday. He connected on 9 of 13 throws for 242 yards and four touchdowns as the visiting Red Raiders buried Unionville, 42-0, in a Ches-Mont League cross-conference matchup.

Coatesville's quick-striking, speed-laden offense was way too much for Neshaminy's usually staunch defense.

Quarterback Emmitt Hunt, halfback Daquan Worley, and wideouts Chris Jones and Dre Boggs did the bulk of the damage for the explosive hosts.

After three years at Church Farm, Howard Sellars decided to play his final season of high school basketball at Coatesville. "Coatesville is where I live," the 6-foot-1, 160-pound senior guard said.
