Harriton has achieved many things this season on the tennis court. The District 1 Class AA champion Rams (19-1) already have set a school record for victories in a season. Mak Kendall won the district singles championship, and Brad Nelson and Mark Lansman combined to win the district doubles title. It's the first time Harriton has won the tennis triple crown. The bigger prize - a possible state team title - is out there this weekend. The Rams play District 7 champion Quaker Valley High, from Pittsburgh, in the quarterfinal round of the state tournament today at the West Branch Tennis Club in Williamsport at noon.

In a game that matched Harriton's powerful running game against Sun Valley's vaunted passing attack, the host Rams proved to be just a bit better in an 18-14 Del-Val League victory yesterday. The outcome wasn't decided until Harriton sophomore Dereck Thomas intercepted a Craig Messick pass at the Rams' 20-yard line with 28 seconds left, but the tone of the game was established on the teams' first two possessions. Sun Valley took the opening kickoff and drove 66 yards in five plays for a touchdown.

Watch a team play to its potential, watch it battle and work, watch it even fall with valor, and any coach will walk away satisfied, regardless of the loss. But Harriton coach Lew Rarig did not see those qualities in his team Friday in the quarterfinal round of the PIAA District 1 Class AA soccer playoffs. Rarig walked away with disappointment and disillusionment. His team was eliminated from the playoffs, as visiting Lower Moreland beat the Rams, 3-1. Lower Moreland advanced to tonight's semifinals at Haverford High.

Malcolm Trottie, who had coached the Harriton boys' basketball team for 2 1/2 seasons, has resigned to become an assistant men's coach at Beaver College. Trottie, a graduate of Philadelphia's Dobbins High School and Montgomery County Community College, took over the Harriton post midway through the 1992-93 season, when John Wise resigned. Trottie, 30, who had been the junior varsity coach at Harriton before moving up, saw the team finish that season 4-15. Over the last two seasons, the Rams were 3-36, but Trottie expected them to be much improved this season.

The Harriton boys' basketball team has set lofty goals for the postseason. But midway through the third period of last night's PIAA Class AAA state playoff opener against Daniel Boone at Norristown High, the Rams faced a gut check. Thanks to a resuscitated defense and key efforts from Marcus Harley, Eugene Bright and Matt Weisbrot, Harriton responded by erasing a nine-point deficit and raced past the stubborn Blazers, 78-67. The victory gave Harriton, the District 1 champion, a berth in the tournament's second round.

For the first 13 minutes of the field hockey game between Harriton and Interboro, it was tough to tell just which team was the undefeated one and which had scored its first goal of the season only the previous week. But some way, somewhere, the cream is supposed to rise to the top. And it did. Harriton (5-0 league) came forward in time to squash the Bucs, 5-1, in a Del-Val League contest Tuesday afternoon at Interboro. The loss left Bucs coach Diane Lowthert wondering why her team picked midway through the first half to lose its intensity.

Sun Valley pulled off a surprise on Monday, defeating a very good Harriton team, 190-196, at the Peco Golf Course in Philadelphia. It marked the first time that Harriton had lost a Del-Val League match in nearly five years, according to Harriton coach Al Hoffman. Sun Valley improved to 9-2 overall and 6-1 in the league, while the Rams dropped to 9-1 and 4-1. Junior Robbie Lee scored a match-low 34 for nine holes for the Vanguards, followed by senior Jackie Lucas, who shot a 36 off the white tees and eagled the 262-yard eighth hole.

High school students in the Lower Merion School District will be catching a bit of a break this coming year: It will be easier to ace tests, and not as easy to flunk them. Under a new grading policy, a score of 90 will be enough for an A, down from the traditional cutoff of 92. At the other end of the measuring stick, a failing grade now will be 59 and under, instead of 64. What's behind the grade-point pick-me-up? Some Lower Merion parents complained that the decades-old system of eight points per letter grade - falling out of favor nationwide as districts adopt the more forgiving 10-point scale - could cast their children in an unfair comparative light when they apply for colleges and merit scholarships.

A goaltender's confidence isn't something that can waver when the opposition has a breakaway opportunity late in a lacrosse game. Just a sophomore, Harriton goalie Devin McClain struggled with her confidence earlier in the season. Tuesday afternoon against host Springfield (Delco), however, McClain's poise under pressure helped the Rams to an 8-5 upset victory. "I think this was definitely a confidence booster for us," said McClain, who finished with 13 saves. "It's something we really needed going into the rest of the season.

At 6 feet, Harriton High sophomore Greta Stahl can't exactly hide lackluster effort on the lacrosse field. So when coach George Dick called her out - then pulled her out - early in the game Wednesday at Central Bucks East, Stahl didn't even argue. "He ruffled my feathers a little bit," said a smiling Stahl, whose four goals and two assists helped the Rams rout the Patriots, 18-4. "He's really tough on me," she said, smiling. "I think he knows I have potential, so he gets mad when I don't work hard enough.
