Penn's Maalik Reynolds: The freshman delighted the home folks in the crowd at Franklin Field by winning the high jump, the first win by a Quaker athlete in the event since 1955. The resident of Atlanta cleared 7 feet, 31/4 inches for the win, and Penn coach Charlie Powell sees lots of higher jumps in his future. "What makes him special, he takes the high jump seriously, but he doesn't take himself super-seriously," Powell said. "I think he understands there's a difference between the high-jump world and the real world.

Police said Connors was hit about 3:30 p.m. at Academy and Comly roads in Northeast Philadelphia. The teen died about 40 minutes later from head and body trauma at Aria Hospital-Torresdale. The female driver, whose name was not released, apparently stayed at the scene after hitting Connors, who is the son of Martin Connors, a Philadelphia police detective, police sources said.

This is Phil Martelli's 19th season as St. Joseph's head basketball coach and as he remembers he has never given a freshman as much defensive responsibility as he does to 6-foot-6 forward DeAndre' Bembry. Most of the time Bembry will cover the opponent's top offensive player, regardless of size. That was the case in Saturday's 75-64 win over La Salle, when Bembry covered point guard Tyreek Duren, who was limited to nine shots. "I would say DeAndre' has probably had the most significant defensive role of any freshman I have had," Martelli said.

Even though the weather promises to get much, much colder, Bernard Jones has received official permission to shed some clothing. From now on, Jones will be kept under wraps by nothing more than shorts and a T-shirt. Sleeveless. It had been the intention of Roman Catholic coach Dennis Seddon to ease Jones, a 6-5, 210-pound freshman forward, into varsity competition little by little. Honest, it had. But then came last night and a Seagull Classic XIV consolation at Holy Spirit High, when Jones's numbers were big and bigger - 28 points on 13-for-19 shooting; 20 rebounds - in Roman's 71-65 loss to Bridgeton, N.J. The Cahillites (6-2)

TAMPA, Fla. - It's not taking Brandon Knight long to build an impressive resume in the NCAA tournament. A game-winning shot in the closing seconds of his debut. A career-best 30 points in his next game, helping Kentucky back into the round of 16. Less than 48 hours after his only basket helped the fourth-seeded Wildcats survive their tourney opener against Princeton, Knight led an 11-0 run coming out of halftime and made six free throws in the final minute to close out a 71-63 victory over fifth-seeded West Virginia.

Picture a typical freshman wrestler. Scrawny and a little on the shy side, right? Winslow Township's Vince Jones isn't a typical freshman. Jones brings strength, experience and an air of cockiness to the mat. That mix has enabled the 171-pounder to construct an amazing start to his scholastic career: a 9-0 record with six pins. In the season-opening Haddonfield Tournament, Jones, a seventh seed, racked up two pins before winning the championship by injury default. After a 9-3 decision in a dual meet, Jones flattened three opponents and earned outstanding wrestler honors in the Egg Harbor Township Tournament.

Megan Lynch displayed a bit of crafty footwork to record her first career goal and lift Marple Newtown to a 2-0 win over visiting Upper Merion in a nonleague soccer game on Wednesday. After receiving a through ball from Holly Nicolardi, Lynch one-touch dribbled with her left foot around the charging Upper Merion goalkeeper and blasted the shot from around the 6-yard line. Lynch, a freshman striker, put the Tigers ahead, 1-0, 16 minutes into the second half. Deirdre Bradley added a goal and Kylie Klos recorded nine saves for the shutout.

Containing Wyoming quarterback Brett Smith is one of Temple's top priorities. Leaving the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder some breathing room could translate into a Gildan New Mexico Bowl loss for the Owls (8-4). That's because the true freshman will arguably be the most exciting offensive player on the field not named Bernard Pierce in Saturday's game in Albuquerque. "Brett is one of the best competitors I've coached," Wyoming coach Dave Christensen said of the Mountain West Conference freshman of the year.

The first half of the lineup has carried Buena's wrestling team all season. But it was an upper-weight wrestler - a freshman at that - who came to the rescue last night. With an early lead rapidly evaporating, 217-pound freshman Dan Levari pinned Rick Jackson to clinch a 31-29 victory for the Chiefs over visiting Pinelands in the South Jersey Group 2 championship match. It was the second straight South Jersey title for Buena, which is 18-2. The Chiefs are ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by The Inquirer.

WHEN MY FATHER died in 1982 at 43, he left behind five children. I was 20, my baby sister was 11 and in between were three boys, ages 16, 15 (just the day before) and 13. My two oldest brothers, Teddy and Jon, were students at the Prep. I don't need to say which Prep, of course. On the day of Daddy's funeral, a few of my college friends showed up in support, as well as a sprinkling of my youngest brother's and sister's classmates. But as I stood in the receiving line at St. Laurence's in Upper Darby, trying to feign interest in the kind but (let's face it)

Sam Offenback is in unfamiliar territory. The senior catcher for Neshaminy's softball team has played for a PIAA Class AAAA state title. She has competed in the District 1 Class AAAA tournament and won Suburban One League National Conference championships. She has played in some big games and put up even bigger numbers since taking over behind the plate as a freshman. But she has never before caught a pitcher younger than her. The Long Island University recruit laughed about just that after Neshaminy's 11-5 victory at Souderton on Wednesday afternoon.

NEW YORK - It was a bittersweet evening for Obi Enechionyia at Madison Square Garden. The forward set or tied career marks in points (17), rebounds (eight) and blocks (five). That's a stat line to be proud of for a freshman playing on national TV at MSG, but Enechionyia was left to look at his senior teammates, knowing they would never step on the court together again after Temple's disappointing 60-57 loss to Miami last night in the NIT semifinals. A defensive bruiser off the bench for Temple, Enechionyia nearly carried his team to victory with his post-ups and swats.

I HAPPENED to be walking out of the gym at the same time as Villanova coach Jay Wright after his team had crushed Seton Hall on Feb. 16. On the way to our cars, as we talked about Villanova's season, he mentioned how they were trying a model for success that included juniors and seniors starting while freshmen and sophomores get minutes and get better. Call it "Four and Done. " Wright specifically mentioned freshman Phil Booth as a player who really gets what they are trying to do. In fact, the coach had talked about Booth at his news conference that night, saying he's never had a player with such obvious ability so readily accept the limited role he had been given.

Chaotic. Frenzied. Hectic. From the jump, the pace of the District 1 Class AAA championship game between Gwynedd Mercy and Pope John Paul II was wild, and the feeling in the gymnasium at Upper Dublin was tense. Bodies flew onto the hardwood to grab loose balls. Others fought elbows in the air to grab rebounds. It definitely wasn't pretty, and at times, it even seemed disorganized. But in the end, Gwynedd Mercy came out on top, defeating the Golden Panthers, 47-42, in a tight battle Saturday.

IT'S AN INTERESTING proposal. Last week, The Diamondback - the University of Maryland student newspaper of which I am proud alum - broke a story that the Big Ten Conference was going to discuss making football and men's basketball players spend a year in college before they would be eligible to compete. Certainly, a lot of ground must be covered between discussing a "Year of Readiness" proposal to something concrete actually happening, but I would ask, "Why not?" I understand the concerns, and if I were a men's basketball or football coach in the Big Ten, I'd be just like Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo in saying, "I'm not sure I'd do that.

AVERY MARZ is stepping up and then off of an aerobic platform. Her left foot lands on the platform first and her right foot follows. She does this repeatedly as her physical therapist watches. Her mother, Mary Beth Schoellkopf, stands off to the side and watches intently. Marz, a Saint Joseph's freshman, is wearing a T-shirt from the basketball camp of women's coach Cindy Griffin, a pair of Jordan-brand basketball shorts, athletic shoes and a white headband to keep the sweat from trickling down on her face.

YOU WON'T find Shane White, 18, a freshman at Holy Family University in Northeast Philadelphia, giving $5 haircuts, manicures or facials today at Bucks County Technical High School to raise money for City of Hope cancer research. But you will find him working the HopeCuts fundraiser at his Feasterville alma mater, supporting the 50 student barbers and cosmetologists trying to raise more than $10,000 for City of Hope like they did in a snowstorm last year. White's expertise is technology, not cosmetology, so he's been networking for months to spread the word about today's $5 HopeCuts, hoping a good crowd shows up from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. All the money goes to support the famous cancer-research hospital in Los Angeles that has clinical-trial research partnerships with Thomas Jefferson University and other Philadelphia hospitals.

The 27,424 applications are the result of a decision to hone an applicant pool that had ballooned to levels so unwieldy that some prospective students didn't even know what city Drexel was in.

In the wake of two student suicides in four days, the Burlington Township School District brought counselors into the high school Tuesday to assist students with their grieving and guard against further loss. School administrators gathered all staff and high school students Tuesday "to talk . . . and come together," according to Liz Scott, the district's spokeswoman. "Counseling was offered throughout the day in safe zones" around the building, she said. Children in lower grades who sought assistance also received counseling.
