The scheduled fourth Thanksgiving Day football game between Malvern Prep and St. Joseph's Prep has been moved from Villanova University to Plymouth Whitemarsh High for financial reasons, Prep spokesman Bill Avington said. The Prep uses Plymouth Whitemarsh as its home site. With last year's 17-16 victory at Villanova Stadium, Malvern Prep took a 2-1 lead in the Catholic League vs. Inter-Ac League holiday series. - Rick O'Brien

When some coaches get cleaned out of top-notch players, they take a sabbatical. At Malvern Prep, Gaspare "Gamp" Pellegrini measures the new kids for championship jackets. Pellegrini produced 11 Inter-Ac League titles (10 outright, one shared) in his first 18 seasons at Malvern and he again expects to contend despite a lineup that will often feature underclassmen at 15 of the 22 starting positions. "We only have seven seniors on the whole team," he said, not complaining, just informing.

Because of illness, Downingtown freshman heavyweight Will Thompson had a late start to the wrestling season. But yesterday, competing in his second varsity bout, Thompson used his 274 pounds to record a second-period pin in the Whippets' nonleague match against Malvern Prep. Thompson's pin against Matt Intoccia capped an easy 55-13 win for the Whippets, who are the No. 4 team in The Inquirer's suburban rankings. "I'm feeling pretty good," said Thompson, who described his illness as something "like mono.

Malvern Prep is moving and passing the puck like never before this season. Moving past La Salle in the Inter-County League Class AAA standings is the next objective for the Friars, who face the Explorers at 8:30 tonight at Ice Line in West Chester. La Salle (11-3 overall, 4-0 league) is in first place; Malvern Prep (4-2, 4-2) is second. Although the teams will play another regular-season game Feb. 12, tonight's matchup could have postseason implications. "We really control our own destiny," Malvern coach John Graves said.

Malvern Prep had already clinched at least a tie for the Inter-Academic League crown before Tuesday's game with Penn Charter. The host Friars just wanted to ice the championship cake with a win over Charter. But Malvern left the cake out in the rain. The Friars committed four errors in the fourth inning, helped the Quakers to a 6-0 lead, lost any chance of momentum to two rain delays, and went down in the soggy end, 8-3. So for the second straight year, Malvern and Charter finished tied atop the Inter-Ac standings.

When Malvern Prep's ice hockey team loses, it usually marks the end of the season and time for spring sports. Since winning the Flyers Cup Championship three years ago, Malvern has twice skated through regular seasons without a loss to an Eastern High School Hockey League opponent. But in the playoffs the last two years, Malvern has twice suffered season-ending defeats before reaching the finals. Although the Friars had seasons that made other teams envious, they were still unfulfilled.

Germantown Academy's 6-foot-9 senior center, Chris Krug, will rank among Southeastern Pennsylvania's most-sought-after boys' basketball recruits this season. For Inter-Academic League rival Malvern Prep, whose tallest starter is 6-3, Krug also will be one of the most difficult to defend. However, after the wave of flu that hit Germantown Academy this week, the gray apparition of Krug that Patriots coach Jim Fenerty saw in class yesterday may be no match for the Friars. Fenerty, coach of the three-time defending league champions, knows how devastating one loss in the league's 10-game schedule can be to title hopes.

Allegedly to bypass a trade embargo on Chinese goods in 1983, Eagle's Eye Inc. shipped in 13,983 pairs of children's and ladies' pants labeled "Made in Hong Kong," when the clothing had been made in China. Some alert U.S. Customs agents got wind of the illegal practice, and when Eagle's Eye shipped 7,050 women's sweaters to Philadelphia on Oct. 28, 1983, they were seized. The labels on the sweaters said "Made in Japan," but many had been manufactured in China, and the rest had been made in Hong Kong, according to federal authorities.

If Ivan Wilkins had gone scoreless in the first quarter of a game last year, the 6-foot, 3-inch Malvern Prep forward probably would have disappeared for the rest of the contest. But Wilkins is a changed basketball player this season. More confident. More aggressive. If he doesn't score in a quarter, he just turns it up a notch in the next period. "He's starting to realize that he can play with anybody," Malvern Prep coach Bud Tosti said after the Friars trounced Overbrook, 53-36, for the Carroll Converse Classic championship Saturday night.

Two games into the Inter-Ac League boys' basketball season, Malvern Prep was in trouble. The team had lost its league opener to Penn Charter in desultory fashion, falling, 58-46. Episcopal Academy then jumped to a 10-2 lead against the Friars in their next game. As Malvern guard Ryan Polley put it, "We were going nowhere, fast. " But Malvern rallied in that Episcopal game, using a 24-10 fourth quarter to beat the Churchmen, 58-49. And it was the start of a brilliant turnaround, as Malvern went on to win nine of its last 10 games, including Friday's 67-39 victory over Chestnut Hill Academy.

Fifteen years ago, Scott Hisey and his wife, Jackie, embarked on a 27-day trip to Tomsk, Siberia. But their venture was far from a vacation. The couple, having no children at the time, traveled across the globe to a small city in Russia's largest province with one goal in mind: to adopt a 2-year-old boy. Chris, the child they brought home to Collegeville, was not the typical 2-year-old. "When we first got him home, he couldn't close his hand on a Cheerio," Scott Hisey said.

It didn't take long to realize that Germantown Academy junior Kyle McCloskey would be a thorn in the side of Malvern Prep. "McCloskey is single-handedly kicking our butt," Malvern Prep coach John Harmatuk told his players in the first quarter of Friday's pre-snowstorm Inter-Ac matchup. McCloskey scored a game-high 28 points, with 21 coming in the first half of the Patriots' 88-84 triumph that was moved up to 4:30 p.m. to avoid the storm. The victory keeps the three-time defending league champion Patriots (15-5, 4-1)

A Malvern company that publishes newsletters on business topics, including one titled "Keeping Up to Date on Payroll," will face a bill of an estimated $1.75 million to pay 6,000 employees docked for bathroom and other short breaks. "No worker should have to face the choice: Do I take a bathroom break, or do I get paid?" said Adam Welsh, a senior trial attorney at the U.S. Department of Labor's Philadelphia office. "I think it's the rare employer who doesn't allow its employees to go to the bathroom," Welsh said.

Chris Montie suffered a concussion in a St. Joseph's Prep practice two days after Thanksgiving, taking an inadvertent elbow to the head, and had to sit out the team's first three games. Showing little rust from the layoff in his first appearance of the season, the 6-foot-6, 195-pound senior forward helped the visiting Hawks, who trailed by 10 points midway through the third quarter, overcome Malvern Prep, 51-46, in a nonleague contest Friday afternoon. Montie's first practice since the injury was on Thursday.

Eight years ago, Kate Plows was reflecting on her job as arts instructor at Malvern Preparatory School. She knew how students would benefit from the English and math classes they took at the private high school better known for its academics and athletics than its arts programming. But she wanted to make her ceramics classes have impact, too. "A lot of my students leave my studio and they've had a great experience, but they're never coming back," Plows said. "They're never sitting at a potter's wheel again.

The first rule of running trick plays is to conceal the notion that trickery is afoot. Malvern Prep junior wide receiver Matt Daller did that twice Saturday during the Friars' 34-7 Inter-Ac victory at Germantown Academy. The first came on fourth and 5 near midfield when the punter Garrett Reilly flipped the ball on a reverse to Quinn McCahon. He threw to Daller for an 18-yard gain near the Friars' sideline. "I think the biggest thing was not to tip it off and look where I was going," Daller said.

The top 24 boys' golfers in the Inter-Ac were presented with a decision Tuesday morning. Play Merion East in a torrential downpour that afternoon or wait until Wednesday and play Merion West in the sunshine. As if there was ever a question. Malvern Prep senior Marty McGuckin stood tall despite the driving rain on the famed Main Line course - the site of the 2013 U.S. Open - by shooting 4-over-par 74 to win the Bert Linton Inter-Ac Individual Championship. Episcopal Academy's Case Hummer finished second with 76. Hummer is an eighth grader who played the whole round without a hat or umbrella.

Malvern Prep's Colin Wills had no one in front of him as he crossed the finish line Monday at Belmont Plateau. It only seemed like he had no one behind him. Wills cruised to victory in 17 minutes, 1 second to capture the Inter-Ac boys' cross-country championship on Belmont Plateau's 3.1 mile course. Episcopal Academy's Jakob Jorgensen finished next in 17:28. Episcopal won the team title. Germantown Academy's Abbe Goldstein won the girls' race in 18:55. Teammate Maggie Hallahan crossed second, but GA lost the team title to Notre Dame by one point.
