After taking off from football as a sophomore to focus on baseball, Garnet Valley's Dalton Mayberry returned to the gridiron, as a hard-charging defensive end, the last two seasons. "I wanted to be part of the team," he said. "And I missed it. I'm glad I went back. I'll have good memories of the things we accomplished. " Now zeroed in on what will be his only college pursuit, Mayberry shined on the mound as the visiting Jaguars quieted Central League rival Penncrest, 7-2, Saturday in Media.

Bishop Shanahan coach Vic Bruno felt his team played its "best game of the year" Thursday in defeating visiting Garnet Valley, 5-4, in a Southern Chester County League game. "They felt like playing today," he said, "and were all fired up. " That hasn't been the case all year. In fact, his team played very poorly in losing, 15-3, to visiting Phoenixville on Wednesday in a nonleague contest. Against Garnet Valley, Shanahan scored a run in the first on a Laura Sullivan single, a groundout and an error on a ground ball to second baseman Angela Billups off the bat of Monica Corum.

Being a freshman, Christy Yarnell did not not know what to expect at Garnet Valley. "I was nervous at first," said Yarnell, a wing on the Jaguars' field hockey team. "I didn't even think I'd start. " Now Yarnell is used to playing with the varsity. The problem for the rest of the Southern Chester County League is that it will have to get used to playing against Yarnell. Yarnell was one of three Jaguars to score two goals in Garnet Valley's 7-0 league victory over Avon Grove Monday.

Garnet Valley baseball coach Scott Armstrong said he didn't think his club was a Southern Chester County League favorite this spring. Yes, the defending champions had some experienced players back, and had some pitching depth. But the Jaguars also had lost six starters from the team that had won the league and District 1 Class AA titles. Armstrong was forced to shake up his infield, the big move being the switch of Matt Miller from third base to shortstop. Miller's adjustment has been nothing short of fabulous.

When Garnet Valley's Wellington Zaza received the punt with less than a minute left in the first half, it looked as if he was going to be hit immediately, with his Jaguars headed to halftime trailing Central League rival Conestoga. Instead, Zaza broke a few tackles, made his way to the outside, and let his blazing speed do the rest. His 79-yard touchdown return gave Garnet Valley its first lead, and seemed to suck the air out of the Conestoga home crowd. The air would never quite return to Teamer Field, as Garnet Valley defeated the Pioneers, 28-16, Friday night.

The Garnet Valley High football team could very well get a good look at what it's like to face itself tonight, when it meets District 3 champion Lampeter-Strasburg, in the PIAA Class AAA Eastern Finals at Hersheypark Stadium (7 p.m). The Jaguars (12-1), two-time defending District 1 champions, have come back in successive weeks to reach this point. They've done it with defense, especially in the red zone, and a four-back, multifaceted offense that attacks in many directions. The Pioneers (12-2)

Although her Garnet Valley tennis team fell to Upper Perkiomen, 5-2, in the opening round of the District 1 Class AA team championships on Tuesday, coach Karen Randel can savor a fine season while planning to seek some changes that can help the Jaguars in future district tournaments. Garnet Valley won the Southern Chester County League title this season and finished 13-1 - not bad for a team whose program is only in its second year. But the district's format of four singles matches and three doubles matches for tournament competition put the Jaguars at a disadvantage.
