Shannon McIntyre concluded her first year as a triple jumper with a Catholic League championship and a plaque for outstanding performer in the field events. The Conwell-Egan junior won the triple jump (32-8) and was second in the long jump (15-10). "I didn't want to try it," McIntyre said of her initial response to the triple jump.

If Conwell-Egan had been able to stay in the locker room after halftime Friday night, it would have been able to escape with a respectable five-point loss to Catholic League North Division leader Cardinal Dougherty. Unfortunately, the Eagles had to play the final two quarters. "If we could have stopped the game at halftime, we'd have been in good shape," coach Bob DiFlorio said. In the second half, the Eagles (6-9, 2-3) simply couldn't score against Dougherty's defense or contain its offense.

The lure to golf was pretty basic for Jason Krier. It was the thrill of making that one great shot. It's what constantly brought Krier back to the course as an 11-year-old, and it still does today. The only difference is that Krier makes great shots more frequently. The Conwell-Egan junior is among the best golfers in the Catholic League this season. He's the captain of one of the best teams and a reason why the Eagles, 7-2 entering this week, are close to the top of the Catholic League standings.

A story Monday about Conwell-Egan High School and its predecessors has several inaccuracies. It wrongly stated the initial height of Bishop Egan High School, which had four stories when it opened in 1957. In addition, while some students rode public buses to get to school, SEPTA did not exist until 1965. Also, Conwell-Egan's colors are blue and white. The Inquirer wants its news report to be fair and correct in every respect, and regrets when it is not.

The Bishop Conwell girls' basketball team is a little frustrated, and understandably so. One Catholic League team after another has beaten it the last two seasons, and there may be no end in sight. But after Archbishop Wood took a 63-42 road win Friday and extended Conwell's streak of league losses to 20, the Cubs remained upbeat. "We're a little frustrated, but we're playing better than last year," Conwell senior guard Melissa Bujwid said. "It would be nice to get one win. It's just like we're right there and we can't get over the hump.

With their sixth roster revision of the last seven days, the Eagles yesterday waived Tom Jelesky, the second-year, free-agent tackle, and replaced him with Bob Landsee, a rookie who was on the injured-reserve list. Jelesky, 26, had started seven games at left tackle, with varying levels of performance. Eagles coach Buddy Ryan felt Jelesky got maximum effort from his ability and that he rarely shortchanged the team for trying. "Jelesky played well at times for us," Ryan said in a statement announcing the moves,"but I feel both (Joe)

Archbishop Ryan, which finished third in the Northern Division and defeated No. 1 Conwell and No. 2 Dougherty in the playoffs, won the Catholic League championship over Little Flower, 3-1, on a two-hitter by Kim Reilly. "It's nice to see someone else winning the plaque instead of Conwell," Ryan coach Tom Lonergan said. "Six weeks ago, who would have guessed it was going to be us?" Ryan last won the championship in 1977. Reilly walked three and struck out four. "She commanded the game," Lonergan said.

"I love it. I really do," said the Temple University senior, looking out her dorm window yesterday morning, watching rush-hour traffic build up on Broad Street. "My brother went to college in North Carolina, in the middle of nowhere, and when I visited there, I said, 'Nooo.

SHILLINGTON, Pa. - It was a play that seemed to portend doom for Conwell-Egan's bid to repeat as Class 2A champions. With just seconds left in the third quarter of Wednesday's PIAA second-round matchup, Minersville junior Steele Fekette desperately flipped the ball behind his back while stumbling on the baseline near the Miners' bench. The ball drifted toward Shane Hoffman, who grabbed and shot in one motion to beat the quarter's buzzer. The basket gave Minersville a two-point edge after the Eagles, who trailed throughout, had finally tied the game.

After a disappointing loss in the Catholic League playoffs, Conwell-Egan had plenty of time to stew. The Eagles were idle for more than two weeks before the District 12 Class 2A championship game Friday night at St. Joseph's University's Hagan Arena.
