There were few tears after the PIAA state Class AAA field hockey championship game Saturday at Messiah College. While Central Bucks East saw its dream of a title die with a 1-0 loss to defending champion Warwick, the Patriots remained composed as they accepted their second-place medals and runner-up trophy.

Stefan Edberg, the top-ranked men's tennis player in the world, won the championship of the Paris Open yesterday when Boris Becker defaulted midway through the first set because of a left thigh injury. Becker limped off court in the first set, which was tied at 3-3. "I felt something pop at 30-all on my serve at 2-all," Becker said. "I hit a forehand volley.

The bases were loaded. The game was in jeopardy. But even those circumstances weren't enough to rattle the Cumberland softball team.
