EVERY DAY in practice, Luke Ratchford and his La Salle High School wrestling teammates enter the gym staring at a newspaper clipping hanging from the door. The story of last season's loss in the Catholic League championship has served as a constant reminder of the night Father Judge High School snapped the Explorers' 5-year streak as league champs. For the sophomore wrestler, the clipping led to what he said was La Salle's biggest meet of the year, ending in a 40-38 victory last night over Judge and a sixth league championship in 7 years.

For the sophomore wrestler, the clipping led to what he said was La Salle's biggest meet of the year: Wednesday night's Catholic League championship at Father Judge.

As it has been a few times too often for the St. Joseph's Hawks, their final Big Five game of the season Tuesday was a tale of two halves and they were completely different in each. The Hawks were trying to erase the painful memory of a 56-52 loss to Penn at the Palestra on Saturday. Coming into Tom Gola Arena, they knew that they had to get out to a good start against La Salle. The Explorers had earned a pair of wins in their last two home games by getting off to good starts, jumping out to a 19-2 lead over George Washington and a 14-0 advantage over Fordham.

IN A SEASON in which points are mostly a rumor, Saint Joseph's and La Salle reached 101 points last night at Tom Gola Arena. Together. It was not necessarily glorious. It was never particularly pretty. The teams combined to take 109 shots and miss 70 of them. But when the game was there to be won, the ball went to one of several seniors playing his last official City Series game. With 75 seconds left, La Salle's Jerrell Wright got the ball on the low right block with his team trailing by a single point.

Senior forward Jerrell Wright wasn't feeling well but it didn't show on the court. Although he became ill at halftime Tuesday, Wright helped resuscitate La Salle in a 53-48 win over St. Joseph's at Tom Gola Arena as the Explorers roared back from a 15-point deficit. Wright scored a team-high 19 points, and his jump hook against a double team gave the Explorers the lead for good, 47-46 with 1 minute, 12 seconds remaining. When asked about being sick, Wright shrugged it off. "I am fine, it's not a big deal" he said.

Losses can linger. In fact, one can easily lead to another, especially within the extremely competitive Catholic League. Archbishop Carroll High faced that predicament on Sunday against last year's PIAA runner-up, La Salle, less than 48 hours after a difficult home loss to six-time defending PCL champion Neumann-Goretti. But in front of an overflow, boisterous crowd at La Salle, sophomore forward David Beatty helped Carroll secure a 69-57 victory with arguably the biggest play of the Patriots' season.

CAROLINE GOLA'S wonderfully expressive face told two stories yesterday afternoon when a sculpture of her husband was unveiled at La Salle University. She was incredibly proud of what Tom Gola accomplished, what he meant to his school and his city and how many people from his past were at Hayman Center/Tom Gola Arena to honor him. She also felt the weight of knowing that today is the 1-year anniversary of the legend's death. "It's just hard right now," she said after the ceremony, her feelings impossible to hide.
