Haverford School's players may never get their mud-caked uniforms completely clean, but don't expect the effects of their latest loss to linger. Coach Ron Algeo said the Fords would recover mentally from Saturday night's rainy, 28-6 homecoming loss to Chestnut Hill Academy. "We were prepared for a closer game physically," Algeo said. "We had a great week of practice. The kids didn't give up ever, ever, ever. They will be ready to come back Monday. " The Fords (0-4) may not have any emotional scars from Saturday's defeat, but their physical condition is another thing.

Swimming coach Bill Palmer thought his team at The Haverford School would win only three meets this year. The Fords have already exceeded his expectations by winning four of their first five meets, two last week. Haverford School edged visiting Haverford High on Wednesday, 41-35, in a nonleague meet. One day later, Haverford School beat Upper Darby, 97-67. "The boys have been surprising me," Palmer said. "It's a great team with a lot of character. These boys are doing everything a coach can ask them to do. " Palmer didn't have to stress the need for a win in the freestyle relay against Haverford High.

Jim Fenerty earned his 500th career victory as a high school basketball coach on Friday night. And he wasn't even there. The Germantown Academy coach spent more than 32 seasons racking up 499 wins. But earlier this week, on the eve of his latest century mark, Fenerty fell ill while teaching an early-morning civil liberties class to GA seniors. His right side went numb. Some feared he was having a stroke. He was admitted to Abington Memorial Hospital, where he was diagnosed with Polycythemia vera, a bone marrow disease that leads to an abnormal increase in blood cell count.

Brett Campbell has always been good at running past people. It started when he played for a local Nether United club soccer team in Wallingford. It continued, though not right away, when he became a member of FC Delco as a seventh grader. And for the last three years at the Haverford School, opponents have watched Campbell use his speed to exploit defenders - and score a lot of goals. In 2011, Campbell scored 38 goals and had eight assists for a Fords squad that outscored opponents 80-14, en route to a Pennsylvania Independent School championship.

Chestnut Hill Academy's Dan Rosenbaum is best known for his hitting, especially for the way the ball flies off his bat. The up-and-coming junior is also not too shabby on the mound, as he showed in Tuesday's Inter-Ac League showdown with Haverford School. Rosenbaum, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound righthander who doubles as a third baseman, held the Fords to four hits over six innings as the host Blue Devils triumphed, 7-4, and maintained sole possession of first place. "I was hitting spots with my fastball, and my curveball was also working pretty well," he said.

Charles Kelly keeps his lacrosse stick in his team's ice cooler. Kelly handles faceoff duties for the Malvern Prep lacrosse team. During summer tournaments last year, the weather was so hot it caused the head of his stick to bend back almost all the way to the shaft. The flexibility left him with a competitive disadvantage. He had to find a solution. "My dad came up to me and said, 'Why don't you try sticking it in the cooler? It will cool it off and help it stay in place,' " Kelly said.

Haverford School's Matt Galambos, a rugged senior linebacker, committed to Pittsburgh on Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder, who doubles as a tight end, also had scholarship offers from Rutgers, Syracuse, and Temple. Harvard and Yale were in the mix, too. "I think he's been a bit underrated," Haverford School coach Mike Murphy said. "I really see him as a kid who's going to make a big impact at the college level. His best football is still ahead of him. " Last season, while helping the Fords to a 6-4 record, Galambos earned Inquirer third-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania honors as a tight end. In the Inter-Ac League, he was a first-team pick on both sides of the ball.

Paul S. Bernstorf, who led the Columbus (Ohio) Academy to a 35-3 record over the last three years, was named head football coach of The Haverford School on Tuesday. For Bernstorf, who coached Columbus to a 14-0 mark and a state title in 1987, The Haverford School job will mean a return home - geographically. He is a 1976 graduate of Haverford High. "I've had a pretty successful career as a player and a coach," Bernstorf said in a telephone interview from Columbus on Tuesday, "only because I played under and with a lot of good people in the Philadelphia area.
