DREW GORDON, La Salle High's highly successful head football coach, stepped down yesterday after nine seasons, according to multiple sources. Gordon compiled a 91-26 record (.778 winning percentage) and won six Catholic League championships, including five straight from 2008 to 2012. In 2009, Gordon guided the squad to a 14-1 record and the PIAA Class AAAA state title. In beating District 6's State College by a 24-7 decision in the snow at Hersheypark Stadium, La Salle became the first Catholic League squad to win a state crown.

An hour after St. Joseph's Prep outlasted La Salle, 79-74, in a triple-overtime thriller, a parking attendant outside Prep's Girard Avenue campus made an educated guess directed toward exiting fans. "Sounded like a good one," he said with a laugh. "We tried to follow on Twitter. " Those inside the building were treated to a classic, replete with multiple comebacks and miscues by both teams on senior day at the Prep. Chris Clover led the Hawks (18-4, 10-3) with 37 points, 30 of which came in the second half and overtime.

Thanks to his older brother, Mike McLaren may never grow a mustache. Much to his babysitter's dismay in the early 2000s, the youngest of three future La Salle wrestlers tussled over a plastic sword with his middle brother, Matt. The dispute ended with an emergency room trip and six stitches to Mike's upper lip. The oldest brother Andrew McLaren, an 18-year-old senior, remembers the incident as vividly as he remembers the family's unfinished basement with a mat, where the boys spent hours wrestling each other under their parent's supervision.

La Salle's basketball team began February the way it ended January, and if the Explorers keep it up, they could be an interesting team come March. Watching a 16-point second-half lead shrink to one, La Salle held off several late runs by Richmond in a 64-62 Atlantic Ten win Thursday at Tom Gola Arena. It was the third straight win for La Salle, with the first two coming in January. The Explorers are 13-9 overall and 5-4 in the balanced A-10. Richmond (12-10, 5-4) was coming off a 64-55 win Saturday at VCU, handing the Rams their first A-10 loss.

IF SOME DETAILS can be worked out and all the Big 5 schools are satisfied, the Daily News has learned that an annual City Series doubleheader at the Palestra could begin a 5-year run as soon as next season, the Big 5's 60th anniversary. Steve Bilsky, the executive director of the Big 5 since retiring as Penn athletic director last year, confirmed that the doubleheader concept is very much possible. "Each of the schools [other than Penn] would move a minimal number of home games to the Palestra over the 5-year cycle," Bilsky said.

La Salle University, for the first time in its 151-year history, will be led by a lay president rather than a Christian brother - and its new leader might be a woman. "This will be quite a transition," said James Gallagher, interim president of the 6,200-student university in Philadelphia's Logan section. "I believe the university is ready for it. " La Salle has announced two finalists for the post: Colleen M. Hanycz, head of Brescia University College, a Catholic school in London, Ontario, that is Canada's only university-level women's college, and Anthony Joseph Aretz, president of Mount St. Joseph University, a Catholic school in Cincinnati.
