In an early morning swimming workout last month, John Carroll's presence was undeniable. It was only 8 o'clock, a time when most people are gearing up for their morning commute to work. Carroll's energy rivaled that of his swimmers, some of whom would swim as much as 9,000 meters before calling it quits for the morning. Carroll, the coach of the Jersey Wahoos swim team in Mount Laurel, was pumping his fist, exhorting his swimmers on and monitoring the times of nearly a dozen athletes almost simultaneously.

A 31-year-old New Jersey man testified yesterday that 18 years ago, during his first and only tutoring session with his former middle school English teacher, he was touched, fondled and given pornography to read. But, until recently, he never told anyone about it. "I was 13 years old and a B and C student. I didn't think anyone would believe me," the man, whose name is being withheld by The Inquirer, said during a pretrial hearing in Montgomery County Court. The New Jersey man is one of three former Cedarbrook Middle School students who stepped forward with tales of sexual abuse this week against John Carroll, a 67-year-old retired English teacher charged last year with molesting one of his students in 1989.

In a crowded, emotional hearing, a Montgomery County Court judge yesterday sentenced a former Cedarbrook Middle School teacher to a maximum of nearly five years in prison for molesting a young student in the basement of his Glenside home in the early 1980s. John Carroll, 68, who taught English at the middle school, was ordered to the county's prison for 29 1/2 months to 59 months. Carroll arrived in court yesterday with scores of character witnesses, all of whom said they knew another John Carroll, one who would never have touched his students.

The weekly Wednesday night tutorials were supposed to help him improve his grades in Mr. Carroll's seventh-grade English class at Cedarbrook Middle School, a 21-year-old Glenside man recalled for a Montgomery County jury yesterday. But the after-school sessions became a source of shame and embarrassment, because his teacher, John Carroll, spent those tutorials molesting him, the young man said. In a low and sometimes faltering voice, the man testified in graphic detail how Carroll, now 67 years old and retired, sexually abused him during nearly two dozen visits to Carroll's Wyncote home between January and June 1989.

NEWPORT, R.I. - As evidenced by his blockbuster acquisition by the 76ers during the 2013 NBA draft, Nerlens Noel came into the league with amazing defensive skills, unparalleled athleticism, and immediate hype. But in the subsequent two years, critics have voiced concerns about his ability as a power forward and are wondering whether he's just a phenomenal shot blocker who struggles to shoot the ball. And that has brought Noel to Newport, R.I., a picturesque seaside city with a population of 24,027 on Aquidneck Island in Newport County.

Drexel basketball coach Bill Herrion interviewed at Duquesne University yesterday morning for the Dukes' vacant head coaching position. Duquesne athletic director Brian Colleary conducted the interview. "I thought the interview went well," Herrion said last night. "I think they're talking to two or three other people. I liked the people I met, I liked the school, and the city is a nice place. " Sources say Herrion is the leading candidate to replace John Carroll, who was fired earlier this month.

John Carroll got a job recommendation instead of a job from Danny Ainge, his boss with the Boston Celtics. "In the right circumstance, at the right time and in the right place, John Carroll is a very qualified head coach in the NBA," Ainge, the basketball operations director, said yesterday after announcing that Carroll, the interim coach, would not be promoted. "[Boston] is not [one of the places] right now, in my opinion . . . This is a time that we need to make a change. " The Celtics went 14-22 under Carroll after he replaced new 76ers coach Jim O'Brien in January, made the playoffs and were swept in the first round by the Indiana Pacers.

With the return of his three starting attackmen and a full midfield line left intact, West Chester Henderson coach Paul Stankewicz figured the least of his troubles this season would be on offense. The Warriors have proven their coach right. Henderson opened its season March 25 by crushing Upper Dublin, 16-2. On Thursday, the Warriors moved to 2-0 with a similar outing, this time romping past Abington, 15-3. "The kids are anxious just to get out there and shoot," Stankewicz said.

John S. Carroll, 73, of Lexington, Ky., a former editor at The Inquirer who rose to become one of the leading journalistic figures of his day, inspiring prize-winning stories at four daily newspapers, died Sunday. His family announced Mr. Carroll's death at his Lexington home of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare degenerative brain disorder. He had been ill since January. "John was a visionary as an editor: He always saw forests - the big picture - when many of us were lost in the trees," said Inquirer Editor William K. Marimow, who was a friend of his. "John was a superb colleague," Marimow said, "a great listener and a spellbinding storyteller who loved the rhythms and cadences of the newsroom and enriched the lives of all of us who worked with him. " Mr. Carroll cut his teeth on the night shift in 1972, after being drawn to Philadelphia by Inquirer Editor Eugene L. Roberts Jr., a friend and mentor.

Shortly after 10:30 a.m., with the pretzel-eating spectators jammed four deep in front of the Union League, there was an only-in-Philly moment. The Oregon wench brigade was marching up Broad Street from South Philadelphia - a squadron of burly fellows who, despite the pastel frocks, were not really going for the feminine look. Headed the other direction was the LGBT Liaison Committee, which included a half-dozen glittery drag queens - or, as some prefer to be called, female impersonators.

Ja'Quan Newton and company flipped the switch in late January. After a 71-64 loss to Roman Catholic, which looked more than capable of winning its first Catholic League title since 2007 and ending Neumann-Goretti's five-year reign, the Saints reeled off 17 consecutive victories. The highlight of the regular season for Carl Arrigale's squad was a 64-58 road victory over talent-filled Archbishop Carroll before an overflow crowd in Radnor. In the Catholic League playoffs, Neumann-Goretti bested Carroll for a second time, 67-62, in the semifinals.

Dom Cuoci carved out a reputation as a starting pitcher to be feared last season. He was the one on the mound when La Salle clinched the Catholic League baseball title. Lest anyone forget, he's a pretty good hitter, too. The last two days have made that clear. Cuoci drove in eight runs Friday as La Salle thumped host St. Joseph's Prep, 15-3, in a Catholic League Red game. Cuoci went 3 for 3 with a triple and a home run. He also struck out four in three innings to earn the win in a game shortened to five innings.

Among the sports John Carroll played while growing up in Ireland were basketball, Gaelic football, golf, rugby, and soccer. Eventually, the 6-foot-8, 220-pounder decided, in part because of a rapid growth spurt, to concentrate on hoops. And to pursue the sport at the highest level, he relocated to Florida three years ago. "A lot of secondary schools in Ireland have basketball, but it's not a big thing over there," said Carroll, now a postgraduate at the Hill School in Pottstown. "My goal in coming here was to get a scholarship to a Division I school.

A few weeks ago, a tiny San Francisco nonprofit started a national goodwill juggernaut. The group, A Matter of Trust, put out a call for human hair and sheared animal fur for use in biodegradable booms to soak up oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico. For a nation anxiously watching the environmental disaster, the invitation was irresistible. Hair salons and pet groomers began bagging their clippings. Volunteers packaged the stuff and mailed it to warehouses along the Gulf Coast.

A few weeks ago, a tiny San Francisco non-profit started a national goodwill juggernaut. The group, A Matter of Trust, put out a call for human hair and sheared animal fur for use in bio-degradable booms to soak up oil spewing into the Gulf of Mexico. For a nation anxiously watching the environmental disaster, the invitation was irresistible. Hair salons and pet groomers began bagging their clippings. Volunteers packaged the stuff and mailed it to warehouses along the coast. "It's such a simple thing to do and it makes you feel good," said Mike Gallagher.
