The Devon Horse Show Toys and Souvenirs Booth this year has added several new pieces of memorabilia - all of which feature the official horse show seal. A white cotton, golf-style sweater, featuring the blue seal, will make its debut at $25, and a watch, with the seal on its face, will be selling for $40. But Kim Hughes, now in her third year as chairwoman of the booth, said she expected T-shirts ($10 to $12.50) and sweatshirts ($25) to continue as the best sellers. Both sold out last year, boosting the booth's profits to more than $30,000.

Five Chinese-speaking men burst into the kitchen of the Chinese Delight restaurant at closing in Devon Sunday, tied up the owners and two employees, and escaped with $2,000 in cash and jewelry, police said. Tredyffrin police Capt. Paul Pennypacker said the owners, Teh Tsin Chao, 60, and his wife, Shu Chen Chao, were closing about 11:45 p.m. when they were surprised by the robbers, who were armed with a gun and a kitchen knife. "We're not ruling out the fact that this may have been some sort of underworld Chinese organization that preys on the Chinese community," he said.

Trinity, the second seed from District 3, led from the outset and tolerated just three tie scores, the last in the second quarter, before downing District 1 champion Devon Prep, 80-71, last night in the first round of the PIAA Class A boys' basketball tournament. Senior swingman Kevin Bekelja hit four three-point shots on his way to a game-high 33 points for Trinity. He also hit key shots whenever Devon Prep closed in during the game played at Downingtown. After Devon got to within 31-28 late in the second quarter, Bekelja dropped a three-pointer and drove for a basket to key an 8-0 Trinity run that closed the half.

The Bicentennial League may be losing a member, as Devon Prep is expected to join the Southern Chester County League for the 1996-97 school year. "It will not be official until we've checked out the league's constitution and signed a letter of acceptance," said the Rev. James J. Shea, headmaster of the Chester County school. "But I assume that it will be OK. I don't see any problems. " Father Shea said he expected the move to become official within a few days. The Bicentennial League has seven other schools, all of them in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.

Devon Prep lived up to its top seeding last night, defeating Girard College, 75-65, for the PIAA District 1 Class A boys' basketball championship. The district title was Devon's first since 1990. Girard was seeking its initial crown. "We thought from the beginning of the season that we could do this," Devon coach Frank Steidler said. "We knew we had a nice team, had a good point guard [Mike Pingitore] coming in, and we had some depth. It was just a matter of jelling. " The game - at Strath Haven High - was played at a furious pace from the opening tap, which is exactly what Steidler and the Tide wanted.

Devon Prep accomplished something no other Tide soccer team had done in more than a decade yesterday by not losing to Holy Ghost Prep. The only problem was, it certainly felt like a loss. The teams wound up in a 2-2 tie, but the Tide had to wake up this morning wondering how they missed out on upsetting the Firebirds. Devon entered the game 7-6-2 overall and 4-1-1 in the Bicentennial League. Holy Ghost was 12-3 overall and 7-0 in the league. But right from the start, it was Devon that carried the play.

MAYFAIR'S Devon Theater will go from theatrical dream to theological reality on Tuesday if the city's Zoning Board of Adjustment allows Kingdom Life Christian Center to turn the live entertainment venue into a church. After a long, heated debate last week, the Mayfair Civic Association voted not to oppose the theater's religious use. The vote came after the church agreed to run a food delivery service instead of a food bank, and an after-school program instead of a day-care center.

Due to a left-elbow injury that surfaced in February, hard-throwing southpaw Pat Doudican did not make his first pitching start for Neumann-Goretti until more than a month into the regular season. "That was a rough time," the 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior said. "All I could do was work hard with my therapy, a lot of it on my shoulder, to get back out there. " Doudican looked pretty sharp Wednesday afternoon in a PIAA Class AA playoff opener against Devon Prep. The Charleston recruit rang up nine strikeouts in six innings as the Saints downed the Tide, 4-2, at Richie Ashburn Field.

As Kaitlin Campbell rode Rocky W into the arena, the time she'd chase came over the loudspeaker. Moments before, McLain Ward, riding Rothchild, ripped through the course in 40.236 seconds. The public-address announcer bellowed, "That's the time you want to shoot for," right as Ward finished. And Campbell proceeded to do one better. "Going after Rothchild, you pretty much just have to go for broke and hope you get lucky," said Campbell, a 24-year-old from Brookeville, Md. "That's really all you can do. " Campbell's 39.007-second final run earned her the win and $15,000 prize in the Idle Dice Open Jumper Stake at the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair on Saturday night.

Rosanne Sulock wandered into the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair when she was a teenager. It was 1966, and her passion for everything equestrian took her to the grounds all by herself. This week, she was at the 119th show with her two daughters and 1-year-old grandson. "I come every year," said Sulock, 67, of North Wales. More than a century ago, Terry Losse's great-grandmother was a judge at the show. His family has attended it ever since, and this week Losse, 79, came from Delaware to see it for the sixth decade running.

A week ago, Kelli Cruciotti missed her Skype graduation from online high school because she was riding in a competition. That paid off Thursday night, when the 17-year-old became the youngest winner of the Sapphire Grand Prix at the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. The Grand Prix dates to 1978. "I've always dreamed about doing a class like this in front of as many people," Cruciotti said. "To have such a great result is a dream come true. " Cruciotti, of Elizabeth, Colo., riding her own Chamonix H, took home the $30,000 prize with a time of 38.678 seconds.

Eric DiPietro nicely summed up Devon Prep teammate Pat Rohr's demeanor on the mound. "He's all business," the senior third baseman said. "His expression never changes. You wouldn't know if he just struck out the side or gave up a three-run homer. " The unflappable Rohr went the distance on three days' rest as the Tide claimed the PIAA District 1 Class AA title with a 4-3 win over Springfield (Montco) Tuesday afternoon at Glen Mills. Because Rohr threw 70 pitches in four innings Friday against Bristol, Devon skipper Mark Aquilante was prepared to pull the 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior righthander after three or four innings.

The slogan for this year's Devon Horse Show and Country Fair is "Devon: The Tradition Continues. " That is certainly a fitting motto for an event that began in 1896. This year, however, a new tradition has been born. The Grand Prix of Devon, arguably the signature of the 11-day event, now bears a horse's name - Sapphire. "That's going to be an exciting event," said Carrie Wirth, a press officer for the show who works for the Phelps Media Group. The Sapphire Grand Prix of Devon is a two-round event in which riders and their mounts navigate a course with jumps up to five feet high and six feet wide.

A week before the annual Devon Horse Show, a new organization has launched a campaign to preserve the show grounds. An organizer behind the Devon Preservation Alliance said his hope was to build support and give voice to fans concerned about the fate of the century-old institution, thousands of whom are likely to arrive when the fairground gates open next week. "We wanted to provide . . . an educational spot where people who are concerned about preservation could come together," said the group's managing director, Chester County lawyer Joshua Macel.

Even though his father, Dave, flourished as a competitive swimmer and his 13-year sister, Colleen, is now doing the same, Sean Phelan only enjoys leisurely dips in the pool. "It just isn't my thing," the Devon Prep first baseman and pitcher said. "I've always liked sports that use a ball. " As he showed in Thursday afternoon's Bicentennial Athletic League Independence clash against archrival Holy Ghost Prep, Phelan is most comfortable on the diamond. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound senior doubled twice and earned a save as the host Tide, ranked No. 7 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, posted an 8-6 triumph over the previously undefeated and No. 1 Firebirds.
