For Cardinal O'Hara seniors Michele Torelli and Megan Cepetelli, cross- country is an excellent training base for the winter and spring track seasons.

Torelli also has placed third the last two years in the Delaware County championships. Torelli, who is unbeaten the last two years in league dual meets, also competes with Klub Keystone in the summer months.

A few months ago, Ted Donnelly was thinking about passing up the cross- country season. After almost five months of suffering from knee and ankle injuries, and several more months of an intense rehabilitation program, Donnelly considered taking some time off and then concentrating on the indoor track season. "I hurt my knee this summer and really couldn't run, and then I hurt the ankle during a cross-country practice," the Springfield senior said. "I just figured I'd gear myself towards track.

Sooner or later, Archbishop Ryan's Shawn Schneider knew he would have to choose between soccer and cross-country. He had tried doing both in his sophomore year, playing junior varsity soccer on weekdays while running on weekends. Still he missed mid-week cross- country meets at Belmont Plateau. Then in his junior year, he gave up cross-country and played for George Todt's varsity soccer team - the one that won the Catholic League last season and was ranked among the best in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

The first time Upper Merion's Liz Churchville ran the mile won't go down as one of her all-time favorite days. "I ran the mile a couple times last year in middle school," the Vikings freshman said. "I didn't want to do it, but we didn't have anyone else. The first time, I dropped out. I didn't know it would feel so bad. I was out of breath, and my mouth was dry; it felt like I was tasting blood. " Churchville's next attempt at distance work was during the first week of cross-country practice in August.

She heard the pleas from both parents and her coach during last year's PIAA District 1 cross-country championships. Finally, the messages sank in and common sense prevailed for Norristown's Donna Fidler. She abruptly halted her season by pulling out of the competition with about a half-mile to go. That was not an easy decision for Fidler, then a sophomore, to make. She had brought to the race promising credentials (she finished seventh in the state as a freshman), and had battled through the pain of shin splints to get ready for a return trip.

The Strath Haven girls' cross-country team might not be one of the best in the area, but winning big meets isn't how coach Bill Coren measures success. "I get freshmen and sophomores who aren't great runners," Coren explained. "And then they improve and are pretty good runners by the time they're seniors. " The Panthers are indeed a team of overachievers. Despite a 1-3 Central League record, Coren and his runners are shooting for a .500 record in a competitive league. Take No. 1 runner Sara Wray, for example.

Three years ago, Jason DiJoseph was a young man without a sport. Today, the Paul VI senior is without peer in New Jersey as a cross-country runner and is widely regarded as one of the nation's top high school distance runners. "When I was a freshman, my friend asked me if I wanted to run cross- country with him," DiJoseph said. "Since I had nothing else to do, I said yes. "I had never run cross-country before. At first, it was just something to pass the time. I didn't even come up to the varsity until later in the season.

Long before Jake Brophy considered running competitively, the Central Bucks East senior had to travel across the country. With his father, Doug Brophy, often being relocated because of his service in the Navy, Jake Brophy became familiar with long distances.

To top off their journey, the Brophys moved back to Washington one more time - after living in Pennsylvania for two years - before finally settling down in Doylestown at the time Jake was entering the fourth grade.

Blanca Fernandez e-mailed American colleges last year, hoping to leave Spain and earn her master's degree on an athletic scholarship. Fernandez was an elite runner at home, good enough to race with the Spanish national team. But she did not know what to expect. America is a big place, Fernandez thought. There might not be room on a team. Temple e-mailed back. The Owls were interested. So were two other schools. Fernandez picked Temple for its urban campus, its business program and the European vibe she felt in Philadelphia.
