There has been one constant in Public League tennis for "about 40 years," according to Lincoln coach William Kuchler. Every year, Lincoln would lose to Washington. Sometimes, it would be 5-0, sometimes 3-2, but no matter what, the Railsplitters would find a way to not win. Until April 2. Lincoln 4, Washington 1. "It's the first time in our existence that we beat Washington," said Kuchler, who has been at Lincoln for 16 years. "It's a big win for the team. I didn't expect to win. It's really exciting for me. It's like a present.

In front of every good running back is a good offensive line. If it weren't for guys like Central tackle Mark Hrubar, you'd never hear about guys like Central running backs Sundiata Rush and Jerrod Washington. Rush (126 yards, 2 TDs) and Washington (64 yards rushing, 65 yards receiving, ran for 1 TD, threw for another) led the Lancers to a 27-19 Public League semifinal victory over Lincoln yesterday afternoon at Northeast High. Central (9-0), the only undefeated Public League team, will meet Washington - which beat Roxborough, 14-6, in the other semifinal - for the league championship Dec. 3 at Northeast.

The Public League field hockey championship, scheduled for today at 2:30 p.m. at the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences, features a rematch of last year's title game combatants. But Lincoln and defending champion Frankford will enter the game under much different circumstances. After struggling throughout most of the season, relying on a handful of returnees to lead the way, Mitch Kline's Frankford squad has come of age. Lincoln, meanwhile, showed its resilience by rallying to defeat a team that had beaten the Railsplitters twice during the regular season.

More than most regions, the Delaware Valley has many close associations and sites connected to the two great men honored on President's Day weekend. George Washington was in and out of Philadelphia and its suburbs constantly during the Revolutionary War and made his home here during the years he was president and Philadelphia was the nation's capital. Two Abraham Lincoln connections both center on Independence Hall. The newly-elected Lincoln arrived in Philadelphia on Washington's birthday 1861 on his way to his inauguration.

Barbara Cook, the first-year field hockey coach at Lincoln, has the Railsplitters cruising along with a 3-0 record in the Public League. But games this week against two other undefeated teams - Frankford and Northeast - will test Lincoln. The Railsplitters, who have allowed just one goal in their three games, can claim sole ownership of first place with a pair of victories. "The team has played excellent defense," said Cook. "My offensive line has played well, also. " Minding the net for Lincoln this year is junior Christian Eberhart, a transfer student from Bensalem.

To see him, you'd swear it was Honest Abe himself. And when students at the Pathway School saw a tall figure in the doorway leading to their gym on Presidents Day, they were amazed. "Whoa! You look just like him!" one said. "I thought he was dead," said another. Some students just stood motionless, their mouths gaping. Others' eyes stayed glued to the man with the black beard and the stovepipe hat as they walked past him. But it was not the Great Emancipator returned from the grave.

It has been more than two decades since Lincoln advanced into post-season play and captured the Public League championship. And that is something that is not lost on head coach Charlie Davis. "It's been a long time," Davis said after Lincoln dropped Kensington, 97-70, Tuesday afternoon to boost its record to 11-8 overall, 6-5 league. "We have Southern (today) and then Engineering and Science (Tuesday), and hopefully, if we play good ball and execute properly, we'll make the playoffs.

Is it better to go to war with a few bazookas or with a platoon of machine gun-toting soldiers? That's the question facing Lincoln coach Rich Patton and his counterpart at Frankford, Bill Snyder, as their teams prepare for the Public League boys' soccer championship at 2:30 today at Philadelphia Textile. Patton has the bazookas, in this case Carlos Sousa, Tommy Jordan and Fred Wollner. Sousa has amassed 51 goals in his career, including 26 this season. Jordan has 10 this season, and Wollner has 7. Synder will counter with an offense in which seven Pioneers scored at least 4 goals this season.

Ed Murphy sat on the training table inside the Father Judge locker room and proudly displayed his Pink Badge of Courage, which he received after crashing to the floor for a loose ball with less than a minute to play in Monday's game against Lincoln. 'I got kicked in the ear," Murphy said with a smile, gingerly touching his reddened left ear. But such an injury is a sacrifice that Murphy is glad to sustain to help Judge win a basketball game. And Murphy certainly played a rough-and-tumble role during Judge's 53-48 victory over Lincoln in Monday's first round of the Father Judge Christmas Classic.

WHEN HIS FRIENDS asked why he would take a Division II coaching job, Doug Overton has been answering simply: "Why not?" I was with Overton 25 years ago when he was student teaching at an elementary school near La Salle University. If he had not had a long NBA career, he probably would have become a schoolteacher. Starting now, he will be "teaching" basketball at Lincoln University in the rolling hills of southern Chester County. "It's great for me to be a part of a school as prestigious as Lincoln University," Overton said after he was introduced as the Lions coach Thursday morning at Lincoln's Market Street campus.

When Jason Lincoln took the mound for Interboro, the nonleague baseball game was practically over. The Buccaneers starter put up a dominating performance, tossing a complete game and allowing one run, as the hosts defeated Cardinal O'Hara, 3-1, on Saturday. C.J. Cardell provided most of the offense that Lincoln would need as he ripped a two-run double in the bottom of the second inning. Lincoln gave up two hits, walked one, and struck out five en route to victory. In other nonleague action: Pat Lofton struck out six to earn his first varsity win as Radnor downed Upper Merion, 2-1, at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington.

City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson proposed legislation Thursday for zoning changes to the northwest corner of Broad Street and Washington Avenue to permit the construction of the residential and retail project known as Lincoln Square. One of the bills shifts the 3.4-acre corner parcel's zoning from industrial to commercial-and-mixed use, while another tweaks the area's land-use bylaws to allow greater ground coverage by structures, along with other changes, Johnson chief-of-staff Steve Cobb said.

Remember Lincoln It is sad to see two men who dream of being president of the United States trying to force a more qualified candidate who has won 12 elections in a "purple" swing state, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, to drop out of this year's Republican race ("Trump to Kasich: It's time to get out," Monday). This is especially pathetic because Donald Trump, who has never won an election, and freshman Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas are running for the nomination of the GOP - the party of Abraham Lincoln, who was nominated on the third ballot in Chicago in 1860.
