LOS ANGELES - Flyers chairman Ed Snider welcomed a large group of visitors to his mansion in Montecito, Calif., on Thursday afternoon. Namely, his entire hockey team, coaches, and assorted club personnel. The entourage arrived by bus after practicing at a Santa Barbara rink that has a connection to Snider, who has been battling cancer for about two years. Snider, 82, shook hands, and hugged his visitors. "It was awesome," defenseman Luke Schenn said of the two-hour visit.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR Julianna Tornetta Agnes Irwin, midfielder, jr.    When your older sister is the best player your school has ever seen, following in her footsteps might seem like a daunting task. For Julianna Tornetta, it has proven to be a motivator.    She notched 49 goals and eight assists in 21 games this season, including her 100th career goal, which came in a four-goal game against Springside Chestnut Hill.    After three seasons, the junior has racked up 109 goals, tying her sister, Sophia - last year's Inquirer player of the year - for the most in Agnes Irwin history.

In her 17 years of coaching that have resulted in 17 straight state championships, Danyle Heilig has seen quite a few standout players grace her Eastern field hockey team. But few have compared to Maddie Morano, the South Jersey Player of the Year. "She's obviously the complete package," Heilig said. "She's probably the best player I've ever coached as far as end line to end line, sideline to sideline, offensively, defensively and transitionally. " The senior has not lost in her four years at Eastern.

Great coaches produce results. This fall, Lindsay Kocher, the head coach of the Haddonfield field hockey team, produced results. Kocher led her team to a 21-2-1 season that culminated in a Central Jersey Group 1 trophy. After losing the championship game last year in a shootout, Kocher said the team was determined not to let this season end the same way. "I think they just came into preseason just really focused. They made the playoffs last year and were left with a bad taste in their mouths," Kocher said.

Center Claude Giroux, who figures to be the Flyers' lone all-star representative this season, likes the new three-on-three format the league has created for the Jan. 31 game in Nashville. Instead of the traditional All-Star Game, players representing the four divisions will have three 20-minute contests in the tournament, which will have two semifinal games followed by the championship. "It's going to be pretty exciting to play and it's going to be pretty exciting for our fans," Giroux said.

The Eastern High School field hockey team played with its standard mix of skill, speed and synchronicity on Monday. The Vikings rolled out a new weapon, too: indignation. "We wanted to make a statement," senior midfielder Madison Morano said after her team's imposing 12-0 victory over Shore in the Tournament of Champions play-in game at West Windsor-Plainsboro North High School. Senior Nikki Santore scored six goals and Morano collected two assists and played a superb all-around game for Eastern (25-0)

There were moments when Megan Maynes looked across the length of the field just to observe her counterpart. The opposing goalie was a national-caliber player, a senior headed to Boston College. And here was Maynes, a freshman goalie for the Haddonfield field hockey team, in her first year playing the sport, still learning the finer points of the game. "I saw her dive and watched some of the moves she made, and I thought, if I did them too, they might work," Maynes said. "So after she did them, I tried them - and they actually worked.

The opening minutes looked more like an ice hockey game. Players were gliding up and down the field at Bordentown. The pace was elevated. The play was physical. The intensity was higher - even for a state championship game. "Every year we come here, it's like we want it even more," Bishop Eustace junior Erin Quinn said. The Crusaders' field hockey team fell just short of a non-public state championship Saturday for the second year in a row. It lost to the same team, Oak Knoll, this time by a score of 4-2. But after the game, players were already thinking about next season.
