Connor Gregory was frustrated. Things didn't seem to be working out for the Haverford School junior in the first half of the Fords' Inter-Ac League soccer game against Penn Charter. Sure, he scored off a tremendous free kick in the fourth minute, but after that, shots were just missing the net for the forward. At the intermission, Gregory made sure, he said, to "settle" himself. He even apologized to his teammates in the huddle before the second half started, taking responsibility for his squad being deadlocked with Penn Charter after 40 minutes of play.

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.

While Haverford School coach Mike Murphy talked to his football team circled around him about its resiliency, quarterback Brendan Burke stood by himself. Burke looked on from a step behind his teammates while he fought back tears in an outpouring of emotion, listening to a speech that was especially significant to him. After he lost five of his first six starts, the senior captain came off the bench to lead his team to a 34-31, double-overtime win Saturday at league favorite Malvern Prep in both teams' Inter-Ac opener.

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.

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.

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.

Taylor W. Cole, 92, of Chestnut Hill, a pioneer in high school computer instruction as well as a sailor and a father of nine, died Saturday, June 13, of Alzheimer's disease at Arbor Terrace at Chestnut Hill. Mr. Cole taught mathematics and computer science at Episcopal Academy from 1967 to 1987, when the school, now in Newtown Square, was in Merion. He was known for his ability to engage and support all students, particularly those who had little confidence in their math skills. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, long before the advent of the personal computer, Mr. Cole taught computer programming by means of a dial-up terminal connected to a mainframe computer elsewhere.

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.

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.

PARENTS OF La Salle High School student-athletes sat on the sidelines of Upper Bartley Field as their boys played in the Catholic League semifinals against Cardinal O'Hara. They spoke candidly and vividly about the Catholic League, the playoffs, other divisions, and even threw in jabs at old rival, St. Joseph's Prep. Listening from afar, one would think they were talking about the heated football, basketball or baseball rivalries built over the years. Nope. Instead, they were talking about lacrosse.

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.
