Jim Worthington, owner of the Newtown Athletic Club, said he had set aside his plan for an outdoor swimming pool next to the club after realizing that ice hockey was becoming more popular and that there were not enough rinks in the area to support it. Worthington, who revealed his plans to build two ice-skating rinks on the site to township commissioners Tuesday night, said yesterday that since then his proposal had been drawing praise from people...

John Hargrove noticed that his grandson had been acting strangely for the last few months. Rodney Hargrove, the 11-year-old in question, actually can't wait to get to his homework these days. What's going on? Since Rodney signed on to the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation program, it seems that he can't get enough of the ice. "The program has taught him a sense of discipline that I hadn't seen from him before," said John Hargrove, of West Oak Lane. "Now he comes home from school and gets all of his homework done right away because he wants to get to hockey practice.

Philadelphia is known for the Liberty Bell, cheesesteaks and the Mummers. It is an area known for producing basketball, football and baseball giants. It is not, however, known for home-grown hockey stars. It has been two decades since the Philadelphia Flyers joined the National Hockey League. Although many Philadelphians have embraced the Flyers, the area has not turned out any star players. No Gretzkys or Lemieuxes have come out of the area. It is a major accomplishment for a high school player to get a hockey scholarship to a Division I college.

Most of his friends are earning spending money with summer jobs, or spending time at the Jersey shore. But for Jamie Brown, a significant portion of his summer vacation will be spent reading. And it won't be comic books at poolside either. Brown, who just finished his sophomore year at Monsignor Bonner, recently accepted a full scholarship to the Pomfret School in Pomfret, Conn., where he will play ice hockey. "You should see the reading list. I have to read 20 books this summer," Brown said.

St. Augustine ice hockey coach Ralph Triboletti believes that when the Hermits suffered their first loss of the season to rival Bishop Eustace last month, his players "put too much into the game mentally. " Yet, looking toward Friday's 4:30 p.m. rematch at the Flyers Skate Zone in Pennsauken, the coach didn't shy away from hyping the Southern Conference Red Division clash between two of the state's top 10 teams. "It's always a big game - there's no doubt it's a huge rivalry," Triboletti said.

The toughest decision that Monsignor Bonner coach Hugh MacDonald faced last year when fielding a lacrosse team for the first time in the school's history was finding someone to play goalie. "Goalie is the toughest position to fill because nobody likes to get hit," MacDonald said. "You have to find someone who doesn't mind getting bruises from March 1 (the first day of practice) that will stay there until May. "Because whether it's practice or a game, the goalie gets hit and bruised everywhere . . . thighs, shoulders, ribs and arms.

Forget the sequined costumes and the double axels. The 16 girls skating this week at Wissahickon Skating Club were more likely to have tacked up on their walls posters of Cammi Granato and her hockey skates than Michelle Kwan and her figure skates, and they had the equipment to prove it. "I'm here to play hockey," said Becky Dobson, 11, peering out from under her face mask and gripping a hockey stick as tall as she is. For Becky, who...

Dominic Morrone is humbled by the experience that he and his St. Augustine ice hockey teammates will have tonight at the Mennen Sports Arena in Morris Township. The Hermits of Richland are scheduled to play St. Peter's Prep of Jersey City at 8:15 p.m. in the NJSIAA Non-Public championship game. St. Peter's Prep (20-4-3) is seeded higher at No. 3 even though St. Augustine (22-0) has no blemish on its record. Strength of schedule, which is considered to be more competitive in North Jersey, is the reason.

Ticket sales for an ice hockey game between Michigan State and Michigan to be played outdoors already have eclipsed the world record for the sport, Michigan State officials said yesterday. In just eight business days, 56,100 tickets have been sold for the Oct. 6 game at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, a game that has been dubbed the "Cold War. " That eclipses the record of 55,000, set in 1957 in Moscow for the final of the world championships between the Soviet Union and Sweden.

Dave Smink of Berwyn stood outside the dressing room of the Ice A Rama hockey rink in Wilkes-Barre last Friday, casually talking about the incident that had left the lids of his right eye swollen and discolored and the bridge of his nose scarred. This was Smink's fifth year of playing ice hockey for the Southeast region in the Keystone Games and he certainly looked the part. Except that the blow that had come so close to permanently damaging his eye didn't occur from competition on the ice. It had happened the day before on the Wilkes-Barre Municipal golf course.

Eliza Pentz picked up her first field hockey stick about the time that most children are learning to count by twos. The Radnor teenager was 6, and her mother had played the game before her. But not all potential youth athletes have field hockey in their DNA, so the sport's governing body is taking its own steps toward early recruitment. USA Field Hockey has started a national summer-camp program aimed at growing a sport that is played in the United States mostly by females - and that competes with overseas programs that train athletes who start swinging sticks at age 3. The organization hosted the inaugural sessions of the four-day camps at five sites on the East Coast this week, including Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School in Montgomery County.

NICK MATTSON'S first memory of one of college hockey's greatest rivalries dates to when he was in fourth or fifth grade. Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard pulled a North Dakota player's jersey over his head, skated up the ice and banged in a rebound to win the game. Raised in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen, Mattson was a Minnesota fan back then. As were - and are - all of his friends. But a few years later, a trip to the Golden Gophers' Mariucci Arena to see a game featuring UND's Jonathan Toews and T.J. Oshie started to change that.

JASON WENTZELL, who has been a Philadelphia police officer for 17 years, grew up playing roller hockey at the Fishtown Rec Rink and firmly believes it saved his life. "There's two paths to go down in this neighborhood," the lifelong Fishtowner said. "As a kid, I hung around with a rough crowd. Some of them went one way. A lot of them went the other way. "I lived two, three blocks away from the rink," Wentzell continued. "As soon as school was out, we'd go right over there. I was a lot better off playing hockey than hanging on the street corner.

  James H. McFarlane liked playing ice hockey far more than he liked sitting in a classroom. Mr. McFarlane had four offers of "scholarships for playing ice hockey for colleges," his wife, Jeannette, said. He accepted none. "He ended up playing for a farm team to the New York Rangers," she said. On Tuesday, Oct. 22, Mr. McFarlane, 84, a resident of Mount Laurel for 23 years who retired in 1984 as senior vice president of sales for Cunard Line Ltd. in New York City, died of pneumonia at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

MATT MANDES is experiencing one of those go-figure springs. He played some shaky baseball when the weather was cold, then emerged as the ultimate hero on an early April day with outrageously warm temperatures. The 5-9, 175-pound Mandes, a junior and lefty swinger, serves Archbishop Wood High as the second baseman and leadoff hitter. His other sport - and he's the only diamond Viking who plays this - is ice hockey, and this past winter, skating at center, he finished second on the team in scoring.

Penn State, competing in men's ice hockey at a major-college level for the first time in 66 years, makes its debut at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night against Vermont in the inaugural Philadelphia College Hockey Faceoff. Faceoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. The start time was pushed back one hour because of the Flyers' NHL season opener in the afternoon against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Nittany Lions (8-12-0), who last played Division I hockey in the 1946-47 season, are competing as an independent this season and will begin play in the Big Ten next season.
