It was just a matter of proving it. Gwynedd-Mercy entered the PIAA District 1 Class AA girls' swimming championships Friday night at West Chester University as the team to beat. Teams sometimes fold under that pressure, but being the No. 1-seeded team seemed to strengthen the Monarchs. Gwynedd-Mercy won its third consecutive district title in dominating fashion, taking six of the 11 swimming events and setting a district record. The Monarchs totaled 281 points, placing far ahead of Nazareth Academy, which finished with 175.5 points.

Gwynedd-Mercy rookie coach Mark Ciccone measures success by performance and not by wins and losses. So he is disappointed when a bad effort follows a great one. That's what happened to Ciccone last week, as his young Mustangs played what may have been their best and worst games of the girls' soccer season. In a neighborhood battle with Catholic Academies League rival Mount St. Joseph's on Wednesday, the Mustangs (1-4-1 CAL) outplayed and outhustled the top team in the league but still lost, 2-1. "We played a wonderful game with the Mount," Ciccone said.

Gwynedd-Mercy's 12-5 lacrosse win over Villa Maria yesterday in the Athletic Association of Catholic Academies championship game was four years in the making, according to Monarchs coach Kate Tobias. "When I took over five years ago, it was my goal to step up the program," she said. "The seniors we have now have been at the forefront of what we have accomplished. " What the Monarchs accomplished yesterday at Ursinus College gave the school its first league title under Tobias, pushed the team's record to 18-0 and was its third straight win over Villa Maria this year.

Dorothy S. Young, 82, former co-operator of a Horsham nursery and a founder of the American and Pennsylvania Bonsai Societies, died Thursday in the care center at the Foulkeways at Gwynedd retirement community. Mrs. Young, who was a reporter for newspapers in New York and Ambler, developed an interest in horticulture, said her son, Robert Young. Eventually, she began studying bonsai, a Japanese form of miniature-plant cultivation. She went to Japan to get a closer look at the technique and to study Japanese brush painting, then, with her husband, R. Luther Young, helped pioneer bonsai in the eastern United States, their son said.
