Holy Ghost Preparatory School in Bensalem is putting the finishing touches on its field house - just in time for an open house next Sunday. The $2.3 million renovation project features a new playing floor, seating and scoreboards for basketball. This part was named the Chapman Arena in honor of varsity basketball coach Tony Chapman, a 1971 graduate of Holy Ghost. "It is very humbling, a great honor," said Chapman, who has coached the team for 25 years. Chapman, who also serves as school disciplinarian and social-sciences teacher, added: "I thought they built a nice building in 1962.

The Lewises, who now live in Perkiomenville, were out of town yesterday and could not be reached for comment on their gift, which was announced last month.

Lots of bars nowadays are putting on airs, adopting the lofty handle "gastropub" as an excuse to jack up prices and expectations. Not so the Field House , which opened last week on the block of Filbert Street across from Reading Terminal Market (1150 Filbert St., 215-629-1520). Partner Gary Cardi acknowledges that he and co-owner Brian Harrington, who also have the monster hit Public House off Logan Square as well as Mission Grill a block away, have hired a chef (Ralph Kane, formerly of Salt Water Beach Cafe in Asbury Park, N.J., and World Cafe Live in University City)

A bid to move a Haverford Township polling place from a garage on Belmont Avenue to a field house at Haverford College was denied Tuesday by the Delaware County Board of Elections. The 2-1 vote was along party lines, with the two Republican board members voting against the petition and the one Democrat voting for it. The move had been sought by Fifth Ward Democratic leader Martha C. Gummere and opposed by Fifth Ward Republican leader Doris Hodges and her husband, Lewis. The Hodgeses wanted to keep their ward's Third Precinct polling place at 2901 Belmont Ave. in the township's Ardmore section.

Villanova University's Wildcats, the defending national college basketball champions, are scheduled to play their first home game on their new home court Saturday against the University of Maryland. The nationally televised game is to begin at 3 p.m. in the 6,400-seat field house of the $15 million John E. du Pont Pavilion, the sharp-peaked structure on the campus skyline. Although the pavilion's image will be primarily associated with Wildcats basketball and enhanced by lucrative television contracts, university and community officials are hoping that it will be an even broader asset to the area.

For more than two decades, students at Villanova had tried to get a wrestling team off the ground and on to the mat, but there were neither mats at Villanova nor a place to put them. Enter John du Pont. A descendant of E.I. de Pont, founder of the Du Pont Co., the 47-year-old du Pont's fondness for Villanova dates to 1960, when he was aided in his training for the modern pentathlon by Villanova swim coach Ed Geisz and track coach Jim "Jumbo" Elliott. Du Pont had a conviction that wrestling was a sport that should be added to Villanova's athletic program: "Wrestling is a challenge.

LAWRENCE, Kan. - A small number of college arenas are mentioned in pregame conversations and emerge as characters all their own. Kansas' Allen Fieldhouse, named after legendary Kansas coach Phog Allen, who coached there for 39 years, is a storied basketball cathedral here. The 16,300-seat gym with red-and-blue bleachers is part Smithsonian and part basketball mecca. It is regarded as one of the most intimidating venues for visiting teams. With 29 consecutive wins at Allen Fieldhouse, Kansas has the nation's second-longest active home winning streak.

The well-traveled Ralph Kane and Jamie Kelly spent recent summers in Southwest Harbor, Maine, working in the kitchen of a cafe that by day is called Eat-a-Pita and at night becomes the fancier Cafe 2. Gradually they become enthralled with Eat-a-Pita but soured on the seasonal nature of life in that part of Maine. "We thought [Eat-a-Pita] would thrive here," said Kelly, 30, a graduate of Drexel University's hospitality program who met her buddy Kane, 32, when both worked at Fork in Old City.

It was another day, except it wasn't. Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles drove to the football fields at Lehigh University and sat in their cars waiting out the steady rain that fell between the morning walk-through and the afternoon practice. Team workers drove equipment carts to their places and prepared for another session in the heat and the humidity. The players dressed in the field house adjacent to the fields, taping up their aches and doing what they could to deal with the other pain that came with this day. Just another day, except it could never be. The Eagles continued to follow their schedule at training camp on Sunday, but that reach for normality was just an acknowledgment that no break from routine could change the awful reality that had just found coach Andy Reid, his family, and the whole organization.

BETHLEHEM - Kevin Kolb has been lofting passes at Lehigh for 2 weeks now, since reporting with the rookies, and we still can't tell you he's bound for the Hall of Fame, or that the opposite is true, that Kolb is destined to become the defining mistake of the Andy Reid Eagles era.
