The first wave of Eastern's student section arrived about 25 minutes before game time Saturday night. The group, which grew to about 30 and set up across the first row of bleachers in front of a packed crowd, blew into a vuvuzela, banged on a fence, chanted, cheered, and booed when the public address announcer said it could not use the vuvuzela. Eastern, the top-ranked field hockey team in the nation according to topofthecircle.com, was playing second-ranked Episcopal Academy (Pa.)

Episcopal Academy jumped back into the Inter-Academic League golf race last week, taking a pair of victories over a good Haverford School team to even the Churchmen's record at 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the league. Senior Ed Shaw had a hole in one, the first in the 11 years that Win Shafer has been coaching the Churchmen. Episcopal, the defending league champion, has this week off, but was in a precarious situation after a pair of losses to Malvern Prep to start the season. "Last week was real important," Shafer said.

Crawford Hill, the head wrestling coach at Episcopal Academy for the last 11 seasons, has decided to resign. He announced the decision at a team meeting Saturday. "I still love coaching, and I don't want to resign, but I've gotten to the point in my life where I'm doing a lot of different things and I just have to trim down some," Hill said. "I'm involved in writing a book about biology, and I am also part of redesigning the biology curriculum at Episcopal. Then I have a lot of things going on outside the school.

For high school football players, Friday nights are typically fraught with emotion in anticipation of a big game. What happens, however, when a storm puts everything on hold? After an hour delay because of lightning, Episcopal Academy started quickly and throttled sluggish host Conwell-Egan, 42-14, in nonleague action at Truman. Dee Barlee led the Churchmen (5-0), who capitalized on three first-quarter fumbles by the Eagles (4-2, 1-0). Barlee, who also recovered a fumble as a linebacker, finished with 157 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 27 carries.

At this point, Gina Buggy and her field hockey team aren't even counting the numbers. "We just know we're something-and-0," Buggy said with a smile, basking in the glow of the setting sun and Episcopal Academy's 2-0 win over visiting rival Notre Dame Academy in an Inter-Ac matchup. Buggy and the Churchwomen have won 10 games this year without losing once, and few were harder-fought than the war of attrition Tuesday with Notre Dame. Center back Maddie Bacskai scored the first of her two goals on a brilliant set-up from midfielder Margaux Paolino, who led defenders with her before tossing the ball back to Bacskai, who put it home into an open net. Buggy said afterward that Paolino and Bacskai are a special one-two punch because of their unique skill sets.

CHRIS McNEAL freely admits he was always a pretty bad shooter. He cannot offer, however, stories about games when he missed maybe 11 of 13 attempts or thumped three-pointers off the sides or top of backboards. "Since I wasn't good at threes, I hardly ever took them," he said. "Almost all my shots came off drives. " McNeal, a 6-1 junior, is now a starting wing guard for Episcopal Academy's basketball team and Saturday at Neumann University he drained five of seven shots from beyond the arc as the Churchmen bested Malvern Prep, 64-47, in the opening game of the Inter-Ac's annual let's-get-the-league-play-started-party called the Dan Dougherty Tripleheader.

Due to the projected heat wave, all Friday and Saturday football games involving Public League schools were postponed Thursday by the Philadelphia School District. That means we will have to wait to see high-powered Imhotep Charter, ranked No. 2 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by the Inquirer, take on No. 19 Northeast in the Independence Division opener for both squads. The Panthers and Vikings were set to play at 6:30 p.m. Friday. There's still plenty of football on tap this weekend, including a Central League showdown between No. 22 Ridley and No. 18 Garnet Valley.

Last year's record in parentheses. 1. Pennsbury (18-3): Now two years removed from a District 1 Class 3A title, the Falcons were ousted in the quarters last year, an untimely exit the squad no doubt will use as motivation. 2. Pennridge (12-5-2): The Rams underperformed last season but have enough talent in the returning nucleus to make some noise this postseason. 3. Downingtown West (14-5): Seven starters return for the Whippets, a team that finished as the runners up in District 1 Class 3A. 4. Council Rock North (16-6-3)

It's not always easy for a quarterback and receiver to get on the same page. It takes precision timing, a strong feel for each other's abilities, and lots of practice reps. This year in Southeastern Pennsylvania, a number of top-notch signal-callers and rock-solid pass catchers have that special bond. It should translate into plenty of eye-popping aerial hookups. Last season's most prolific passer is back. Stephen Sturm threw for a whopping 3,100 yards and 31 touchdowns while leading Perkiomen Valley to a 10-2 record and the PIAA District 1 Class 4A quarterfinals.

FJ Leto has changed course from his carnivorous teen years, now finding culinary excitement in a glass. He blends and then presses kale, cucumber, spinach, lemon, apple, and ginger into drinkable form in a tiny commercial kitchen near downtown Ardmore. The Haverford native and alum of Episcopal Academy and St. Joseph's University came to this dietary conversion while living at a Tibetan Buddhist meditation center in Berkeley, Calif., where the menu was vegetarian. More surprising, perhaps, is that Leto has staked a new business on it as the consumer market is saturated with juices and approaching a high-water mark for the cold-pressed type his Juice Dr. is producing.
