The baseball season was beginning to slip away from Millersville, one game at a time. A loss here, another there, some because of poor pitching, others because of shaky defense, had sent the Marauders into a maddening midseason funk. So when Millersville dropped a doubleheader April 4 at home to Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference rival Shippensburg, junior captain Steve Tallon, a Cardinal O'Hara graduate, decided it was time to do something. He called for a team meeting.

It was certainly one of the longer 12-3 games in NCAA history. Three hours, 21 minutes after West Chester and Millersville began last night, they slipped off the field at West Chester's Farrell Stadium under the cover of one final penalty flag. West Chester won, 12-3, and became the favorite in the PSAC East. Its offense didn't score a touchdown, but coach Rick Daniels was pleased - more than pleased - because his Golden Rams had shut down what had been the top offense in the division.

Eight hours before he would play one of the most important games of his basketball career, Amos Clay buried his mother. Darlene Clay died at the age of 42 on Feb. 22. Her funeral was Saturday morning at Merion Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd. "She had been sick for a very long time," said Clay, a junior forward for a Millersville team that is ranked No. 2 nationally in Division II. "She had had her ups and downs. " But, though Clay had a rough week, between his mother's death and Saturday's Pennsylvania Conference championship, there was no question that he would play against California (Pa.)

Coaches in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference's Eastern Division know that this season's champion will be the team that gets the breaks. But John Kochan's Millersville Marauders already have gotten some breaks, and because of them, their chances of repeating as regular-season champs are in jeopardy. The Marauders' breaks, you see, have been bad ones, occurring as they did in the bones of perhaps their two best players. Senior Mike Monroe, a 6-foot-2 guard from West Philadelphia High, suffered a stress fracture in his right leg this past summer, and senior Eric Yankowy, a 6-7 forward, continues to be bothered by a stress fracture in his lower back.
