Joanne D'Angelo Twele, the vivacious cashier from Yummie's Bake Shop in Drexel Hill, died Nov. 5 in Bryn Mawr Hospital. Born in Philadelphia, Mrs. Twele lived in Bryn Mawr most of her life. Mrs. Twele had the uncanny ability to make friends anywhere, her friends said, including Yummie's, where she loved meeting and greeting the customers. "She was a magnet; people were drawn to her," said Dolores Andrews, Twele's friend for 37 years. "She had the uncanny ability of making everyone feel alive and excited about being alive.

Haverford High's Josh D'Angelo can finally breath a sigh of relief. After several near misses, the senior bagged his first state championship on Saturday at Lehigh University. D'Angelo overpowered the field to win the 2- mile run in 9 minutes, 37.42 seconds. "It feels great after coming so close," said D'Angelo, who has been one of the state's top distance runners for the last three years. D'Angelo seemed in peak form heading into the race. Coach Mike Ahlum had been holding him back all winter, refusing to let his star run too fast or too often in unimportant meets and burn himself out. On Feb. 25, in an invitational at Princeton University, D'Angelo had his chance to go fast and finished second in the 2-mile in a very quick 9:27.

There are a lot of good cross-country runners. But not too many have what it takes to be great. "The biggest fear of any cross-country runner is that you'll go out too fast and die at the finish and everyone will pass you," Haverford High assistant coach Jay Williams said. "What separates the good runners from the great ones is that they aren't afraid to go out fast and take that chance. " Even though he didn't win Saturday's Steel City Invitational at Coatesville, the Fords' Josh D'Angelo showed he has the courage to be a champion.

Some might argue that Nico D'Angelo committed too early. And with just cause. The 6-foot-4, 275-pounder, who will be a senior at Holy Spirit, was starting to attract more Football Bowl Subdivision attention. The offensive lineman had offers from Tulane and Buffalo, while Rutgers, Temple, and Central Florida were expressing interest. But . . . "Big-time football, all the bells and whistles, are not really important to me," said D'Angelo, who orally committed to Football Championship Subdivision program Villanova on June 27. "What I want is a good education and good football.

One of the highlights of the spring track and field season will be Chris Southcott's bid to clear 7 feet in the high jump. This winter, the Marple Newtown star cleared 6-10 and also won the indoor state title. Another talented athlete hoping to make some news is Haverford High's Josh D'Angelo, who won the two-mile title at the state indoor meet and is hoping to duplicate this feat outdoors. CENTRAL LEAGUE HAVERFORD HIGH. The Fords hope to topple defending champion Springfield and regain their position atop the Central League.

Vinny D'Angelo is a tough kid. That's what Ridley lacrosse coach Doug Ellers said about his young midfielder last year before the Green Raiders won the Central League, Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association and Keystone Cup titles for the second consecutive year. Built like a fireplug - D'Angelo is 5-foot-8, 190 pounds - and just as forceful when set in motion, D'Angelo, a junior, still is a rough customer on the field. However, much has changed for the rest of the team.

Lou D'Angelo hasn't attended a football game at Pennsville High since his sudden retirement as the school's coach following the second game of the 1978 season. That will change today when the school dedicates the field to D'Angelo, who began the program and stayed for more than two decades. Pennsville Memorial Stadium will become Lou D'Angelo Stadium at 10 a.m. in a ceremony before the Eagles' game against St. James. D'Angelo, 71, has promised to take part in the dedication.

The safe and sensible move for Jimmy D'Angelo would have been to stay in Philadelphia. He ran a busy golf school on Sansom Street. He was a familiar figure in the Philadelphia Section PGA. He and his wife lived in a 200-year-old farmhouse in Feasterville. But D'Angelo left everything behind, including the security of being involved with golf in an area with a rich history and dozens of fine courses. He took a job in this noisy resort town where the beach was king and the number of golf courses was about to be doubled - from one to two - with the construction of the Dunes Golf and Beach Club.

Who will be the better NBA player, Emmanuel Mudiay or D'Angelo Russell? That is the great basketball debate in the Philadelphia area. The better guard, at least the one perceived to be better, will almost surely be whichever one is surrounded by a better cast and better coaches or stays healthier. But when looking at scouting reports and media hype, you see that these two might be difference makers who could help turn a rebuilding team such as the 76ers into an eventual NBA champion.

The grass has faded to brown on Camden Catholic's soccer field, but there are a few things that haven't changed for the Irish. First, there's green everywhere you go. The refreshment stand is green, the uniforms are green, the writing on the wall of the school building is green. Even the garbage dumpster in the parking lot is green. Then there's Mike D'Angelo, the coach of the girls' team, who's spending his fifth year roaming the sidelines. D'Angelo is as enthusiastic as ever about promoting high school soccer, college soccer, and soccer in general.
