The La Salle lacrosse team broke into four clusters Wednesday night after its 9-5 victory over Springfield (Delco) to open the PIAA state boys' tournament. The goalies gathered in one area of Plymouth Whitemarsh's northeast end zone. The midfielders stood in another. The attackmen and defenders met, too. The groups prepared an oral report on the game for their coach, who was meeting with his assistants near the 20-yard line. "Are we ready?" coach Bill Leahy asked. The groups walked toward him. Mitch Soufleris said the midfielders failed to share the ball in the first quarter.

ANTHONY RUSSO didn't have much time to dwell on the loss of his no-hitter yesterday in the sixth inning of the Class AAA city title game at Richie Ashburn Field. Franklin Towne Charter senior Ray Lopez had just slapped the Coyotes' lone single up the middle when freshman Jason Santiago came up next and lined the first pitch he saw right back at Russo. "I always said it looks a lot slower when it's coming right at you," Russo said with a smile, "but that one got on me pretty hot and I just tried to put my glove out. " It was either catch it, or wear it, so Russo plucked the liner near chest level and wheeled toward first, where Lopez had strayed too far. After the doubleplay, Russo responded with a three-pitch strikeout, one of 14 on the day for the 6-4, 215-pound righthander, who led Archbishop Wood to an 8-0 victory over FTC. Just a sophomore in his first year of varsity baseball, Russo didn't get the superstitious silent treatment from teammates as his no-hit bid grew.

LIKE MOST competitors, Mike Johnson dreamed big things when he was a kid. Yet for much of his athletic career, they had nothing to do with sinking a putt on the last hole to win a major golf tournament. Or even a minor one. When Johnson was younger his game was baseball. So his dreams were mostly about hitting a walk-off home run in Game 7 of the World Series. But by the time he was a sophomore at Hatboro-Horsham High, he started to take another swing more seriously. "I got a lot better at it," he said.

La Salle's Zach Drake glanced at the Neumann University scoreboard before sprinting behind the net. He saw that just seconds remained in the Catholic League boys' lacrosse final against St. Joseph's Prep on Wednesday night. The score was tied. Someone had to do something, he said afterward. And his winning play - the goal that lifted La Salle to an 8-7 win - "just kind of happened. " The junior attackman came from behind the net, ran his defender into a pick from Stephen Hudak, and fired the ball into the goal with just 8.8 seconds left.

She had so many true and heartfelt things to say about her school, and Emily Moran's greatest worry, as she prepared to deliver the commencement address Sunday at La Salle University, was that the words would pour out of her into a shapeless pile, like jelly beans from a bag. She has always talked fast, especially among those she knows best and loves most. "They keep telling me, 'You have to slow down,' " she said. It's no wonder why. She has five siblings. Her father is one of 15, and from those 14 aunts and uncles Emily Moran has 86 cousins.

Sam Vecchione says Tony and Jane Mieczkowski, La Salle High's brother-sister rowing-coaching duo, compliment each other well.

With ailing pitcher Dom Cuoci going the distance and allowing only one earned run, host La Salle eliminated Bonner-Prendergast, 5-3, Thursday in the losers bracket of the Catholic League baseball playoffs. Cuoci, a senior righthander and St. Joseph's recruit, has been slowed recently by a lower-back strain. "It was a tough decision to put him out there, but his doctor said he could pitch if the pain was tolerable," Explorers coach Joe Parisi said. Cuoci, who is 6-1 with a 2.11 ERA and 46 strikeouts in 49 innings, scattered seven singles and fanned four.

La Salle's Nick Dermo had two hits and scored three runs Sunday, but his biggest contribution might have required him to just stand still in a Catholic League first-round playoff game against Conwell-Egan.

La Salle went on to post a six-run rally in the following inning and the Explorers earned a 9-2 home win. Ryan Coonahan had a double and a triple for La Salle. La Salle will play Roman Catholic Tuesday in the quarterfinals.

It took weeks to settle the matter, but Franklin Towne Charter finally found the run it needed to top Prep Charter, 13-12, Thursday in a Public League Division A baseball game. The game began on April 8 and was called after eight innings, tied at 12, because of darkness. It resumed Thursday, and the teams put up zeroes until Phil Gilchrist hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th. Gilchrist went 2 for 4 with two RBIs and walked twice. Chris Hammerstein struck out six in three innings to earn the win. Tri-County semifinals.
