A first-time triple jumper was a first-team triple jumper in Saturday's Catholic League Indoor Track and Field Championship meet at Lehigh University. 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.

Today we examine a few more unusual Delaware Valley memorials to those who died in unusual or heroic ways. VICTIM OF THE BOXERS: A stone bench on the the campus of Bryn Mawr College memorializes an unfortunate ex-student - a missionary burned to death during the Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900. Elsie Sinclair Hodge was the pretty, pious daughter of a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, meat packer and an 1897 graduate of Bryn Mawr. Two years later, on Valentine's Day, she married a graduate of University of Pennsylvania Medical School, Dr. Cortlandt Van Rensselear Hodge.

Temple University has come a long way since people made bad jokes about it. The school has successfully done a promotional campaign featuring alumnus Bill Cosby that perfectly puts across Temple's unique importance to Philadelphia. Trouble is, Temple is showing signs of not paying attention to its own message. Its trustees have decided to tear down the two best buildings on the campus, the major links bewtween the university and its history. College Hall and the Baptist Temple go back to the earliest days of the university.

Wailing sirens pierce her closed windows at all hours, heavy traffic constantly rumbles by, and the subway shakes the floor beneath her feet. But Dana Spells wouldn't think of living anyplace else. "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.
