A Haverford Middle School teacher was charged yesterday after allegedly pointing a starter pistol at a 13-year-old student's head last week and threatening to "kill this girl" following horseplay in a classroom after school. The eighth-grade math teacher, identified by police as George Trabosh, 44, of Norristown, was charged with simple assault, making terroristic threats, and recklessly endangering another person, and will be notified by summons. A hearing is scheduled for May 30 in Haverford District Court.

All that I know about Drew Lewis is what I have read in newspapers. He is and long has been one of the most proficient hatchet men. Skill in identifying who should be fired is the most important factor in any reorganization. Haverford should have given a doctorate to Drew Lewis as its most proficient alumnus 20 years ago. The Republican Party should have recognized that his skills as a hatchetman are what the nation most needs. His courage in being true to his principles, as in the Haverford commencement, demonstrate why he would be the strongest presidential candidate available.

When Downingtown took a couple of early leads against Haverford in their opening-round game of the District 1 girls' lacrosse tournament yesterday, memories of last year's stunning first-round loss to Springfield came flooding back for Fords coach Nancy McGoldrick. Some of her players felt them, too. "This time we were determined that wasn't going to happen," said Haverford junior Colleen O'Hara, who helped spearhead a seven-goal surge that turned a tight game into a 14-5 romp for the Fords.

The Haverford High ice hockey team answered the doubts with determination, countered the boos with belief. "Everybody out there doubted us," senior captain and right winger Kevin Tallon said. "We were always the bottom dog. " The Fords (15-10-4) aren't barking from the bottom any more. They have qualified for the Flyers Cup, regardless of how they fare against Monsignor Bonner in the Eastern League Tier I championship series. In the best-of-three series, Haverford topped Bonner, 5-3, in Monday night's opener at the Skatium.

Calling all wannabe assistant township managers: Haverford is looking for someone to fill a position it hasn't had in a long time, a person who can oversee the public works department and help Township Manager Tom Bannar with administrative duties. Other municipalities, such as Tredyffrin, Springfield and Lower Merion, employ assistant township managers. Haverford Commissioners President Fred Moran suggested creating the position at a meeting Jan. 9, after the death a week earlier of Public Works Director Al DiGirolamo.

Meeting in closed session with a lawsuit hanging over their heads, the Haverford commissioners this week agreed on a reapportionment plan that board members say more nearly equalizes the populations of the township's nine wards. The Monday night session was hastily called last week after the League of Women Voters filed a suit in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, contending that the township was violating the voters' equal-protection rights. The timing conflicted with a ice-hockey game played at the Skatium to benefit a Monsignor Bonner High School student who was burned in a school accident.

The Haverford High field hockey team went to bed last night knowing it will be playing another home game. The Fords will host Hatboro-Horsham tomorrow in the quarterfinals of the District 1 Class AAA playoffs. It's a distinct home-field advantage, too, and the Fords know it. Depending which direction play is going, teams are running and passing uphill or downhill. Yesterday, the fifth-seeded Fords had the downhill roll in the first half, and that is when they did their damage, scoring all three of their goals in a 3-0 victory over Owen J. Roberts.

One of W. Boulton Dixon's first tasks as the new headmaster of The Haverford School was to clean house. In April, four months before he was officially instated, he fired a good chunk of the staff. Others, sensing that enormous changes were about to take place at the elite boys school, resigned. When the purge was over, 19 of the 90-member faculty had been replaced. Although Dixon maintained in an interview that high turnovers are normal when a new administration takes over, Alfred Rauch Jr., president of the board of the directors, acknowledged that Haverford was looking to hire "new faces with new ideas.

When someone is doing things the way Tommy Bergjans has for the last four years, good things are bound to happen. For the Haverford College righthander, the best possible scenario played itself out Tuesday in Day 2 of the Major League Baseball first-year player draft when the Los Angeles Dodgers selected the Manhattan Beach, Calif., native with their eighth-round pick (252d overall). "This has always been my dream," said Bergjans, who graduated with a degree in economics. "It's an incredible feeling.

Josh Rackley had stroked a par putt like the one he had Tuesday on the second playoff hole of the Haverford Philadelphia PGA Classic hundreds of times before - eight feet, up the hill, dead straight. It's what he called "the easiest putt you'll ever have. " But this was the first time he ever hit a putt like that with $100,000 on the line. "I was extremely nervous over it," the Gulph Mills Golf Club assistant pro said. "But somehow it went in. " And when Jamie Komancheck of RiverCrest, his opponent in the sudden-death playoff, saw his four-foot par putt slide by on the tricky 18th green of Sunnybrook Golf Club, Rackley took home the massive $100,000 first-prize check, the largest payout for a one-day event of any PGA of America section in the country.

Twenty-six wins, two victories over teams currently ranked nationally, and an Inter-Ac Challenge title. The only thing the Haverford School boys' lacrosse hadn't experienced this year was a loss. That didn't change Friday, as the Fords added to their impressive resume and finished off their undefeated season with a 13-9 home win over Culver Military Academy (Ind.). Johns Hopkins recruit Drew Supinski led the way with three goals. With the win, Haverford School will finish 27-0 and should remain atop the Nike/Lacrosse Magazine High School Boys' Top 25. Public League Baseball Jeffrey DeLeon hit a home run and Giovanni Ortega doubled and scored twice to help Olney beat Franklin Towne Charter, 8-6, in the Public League semifinals at 11th and Bigler.

Of all the tournaments played by the club professionals that make up the more than 28,000 members of the PGA of America working in the nation's 41 PGA sections, the most lucrative one for years has been contested in the Philadelphia area. However, now that the founder and sponsor of the Haverford Philadelphia PGA Classic has raised the first-prize amount this year to a cool $100,000, the local pros - some of whom don't earn that much in an entire season - fervently hope to have their A games with them for Tuesday's event at Sunnybrook Golf Club in Plymouth Meeting.

It didn't matter that there were two outs. It didn't matter that there were two strikes. All that really mattered was Ryan Fuscaldo drove in two runs. Fuscaldo singled home a pair with Haverford School down to its final strike in the bottom of the seventh to send the No. 2 seed to an 8-7 win Thursday over No. 10 Germantown Academy in the quarterfinals of the PAISAA baseball tournament. Fuscaldo finished 2 for 4 with a run and the two RBIs. Justin Meyer struck out five in three innings of two-hit relief for the Fords, who entered the final inning down by three.

After dispatching rival Malvern Prep, 13-8, in the semifinals of the Inter-Ac Challenge on Friday night, Jake Hervada and Grant Ament strode toward a victorious Haverford School locker room clad with matching ear-to-ear grins. The beginning and middle of their conversation could not be heard. The end, however, was clear. "We ain't done yet, though," said Hervada, just before the pair disappeared through the open door. "We ain't done yet!" Seconds later, boisterous cheers could be heard as the door closed behind them at PPL Park.

After 15 seasons as the Archbishop Ryan boys' basketball coach, Bernie Rogers is now in charge at Haverford School. A significant factor in the decision, the 41-year-old said, was the teaching position that came with the job. He will be a lower- and middle-school health and physical education teacher at Haverford. "Nothing really worked out as far as getting a teaching job at Ryan," Rogers said. "This is a move that that will help me career-wise and allow me to teach and coach in the same building.
