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.

Filling in for injured halfback O'Shaan Allison, Zac Fernandez proved to be the X-factor for Malvern Prep in its nonleague triumph Friday night over La Salle. Fernandez, usually a slotback, carried 17 times for 94 yards and made an 11-yard touchdown catch as the Friars topped the Explorers, 21-12, at Franklin Field. Allison, a junior who rushed for 1,500 yards and 18 scores last season, sat out after suffering a shoulder injury in the previous week's 47-30 loss to South Jersey's St. Augustine Prep.

Josh Zamot's first career start was everything he imagined - and more. Much more. In a wild season opener for two of the top high school football teams on both sides of the Delaware River, St. Augustine Prep used big plays from Zamot and running backs Kyle Dobbins and True Robinson to score a 47-30 victory over Malvern Prep on Friday night. "I've been dreaming about this for a long time," Zamot said after St. Augustine, the No. 1 team in the Inquirer's preseason Top 25 for South Jersey teams, opened the season in high style with an impressive victory over the No. 5 team in the Southeastern Pennsylvania preseason Top 25. Zamot, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound junior, generated 85 yards and two touchdowns on seven called runs and also threw a pair of touchdown passes that covered a combined 140 yards.

Playing on his home course at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, Gregor Orlando scored a hole-in-one on his final hole Tuesday to win medalist honors in the qualifier for next month's U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship. Orlando, 25, hit an 8-iron on the 169-yard 10th hole at Cricket to record the ace, allowing him to finish with a 4-under-par 66. Because of the configuration at the Flourtown course, the 131 players competing in the qualifier teed off both the first and 11th tees. "The pin was all the way up front so we actually couldn't see it go in," Orlando said.

Two top administrators at Malvern Prep have left or are leaving, but say it is unrelated to pending claims by a former star swimmer that school officials failed to recognize or stop a coach who sexually harassed him. Head of school Christian Talbot has announced that the upcoming school year will be his last. His deputy, assistant head of school Steven Valyo, retired in June. Talbot said the departures had been in the making before both men were named among five defendants in the June lawsuit filed by former student and swimmer William Beard.
