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.

Everything the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball players did Saturday afternoon looked to be second nature to them. Every cut. Every pass. Every defensive slide. But it started before the contest against Gwynedd Mercy even began. From the way the Vikings warmed up at Archbishop Ryan to the demeanor of the players during the announcement of starting lineups, it all seemed rather routine for them. Then Wood stepped onto the floor to compete, and it was more of the same. The Vikings had been there, done that - and the experience and composure showed.

Eleven days ago, Danielle Senour was the sixth player off the bench for the Gwynedd Mercy basketball team. She was a spark plug put in to ensure a tough defensive matchup, a player who saw solid minutes but never heard her name announced as a starter over the public address system. Nine days ago that changed. "At guard, No. 23, a junior, Danielle Senour," the announcer said Feb. 1 on her home floor. The Monarchs have played four games since then. None were bigger than Tuesday night when the Monarchs captured the Catholic Academies title.

From the sideline, Gwynedd Mercy basketball coach Tom Lonergan and his staff could tell it was taking the Monarchs an awfully long time to get into the set play. The seconds were winding down in the third quarter . . . 12, 11, 10 - and soon the numbers on the scoreboard were in single digits. Erica DeCandido, the team's leading scorer and a senior captain could tell, too - after all, she's normally part of the play. She jumped up from her spot on the bench and started gesticulating and yelling to her teammates, her voice trying to overcome the deafening crowd noise.
